Prince Harry Sweetly Fixes Meghan Markle’s Hair as They Pose for Photos during Africa Tour
At their first engagement for their Africa tour, Prince Harry displays his affection for Meghan Markle, during a group photo with children from Nyanga, South Africa.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no strangers to breaking royal protocol; from opening their own car doors, to public displays of affection, the young couple are forging their own royal identities.
"The Justice Desk," is a human rights organization, which is run in a high crime and poverty stricken area. It aims to support vulnerable members of the community, who are prone to violence and poverty, such as women. ITV News Royal Editor, Chris ship writes:

During a group photo with the local children Harry gently brushing Meghan's hair into place. With his hand on her shoulder, he gently brushes her pony tail off her shoulders and neatly brings it to her back. In 2018, Harry also showed her the same display of affection.

Meghan and Harry aren't just keeping their affection to themselves, spreading the message of love and support, Meghan speaks to the women of Cape Town, saying:
"I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color and as your sister. I am here with you, and I am here FOR you…The work that's being done here is to keep women and children safer, which is needed now more than ever."
Speaking out against abuse, both Meghan and Harry emphasised the need to uphold women's rights, promote positive role models and prevent the cycle of violence plaguing many communities in South Africa.
