Little Girl Who Cried after Meghan Markle Kissed Her Hand Says It Was 'Incredible' Meeting the Duchess
Amara Nenguke wept as she explained what the special moment in which she met Duchess Meghan meant to her.
Like his mother before him, Prince Harry and his Duchess Meghan seem to have a gift for touching people's hearts.
On their tour of 8 African countries, the Dukes of Sussex have interacted with thousands of people, but one little girl, in particular, will never forget them, or what their kindness meant to her.

A HISTORICAL MOMENT OF UNSURPASSED TENDERNESS
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were visiting mothers2mothers—a nonprofit organization in Cape Town working to prevent the spread of HIV in Africa, and they paused to greet a group of people.
Little eight-year-old Amara Nenguke was overwhelmed by the Royal presence, and in a sweet, loving gesture, Meghan kissed her hand to soothe her.

Following our tradition of rotating the accounts we follow on a monthly basis, for the month of October we are celebrating “community.” • Over the last week on their official tour to Southern Africa, The Duke and Duchess have had a poignant reminder of the importance of community - the sense of support and togetherness that is felt from feeling like you are a part of something that respects difference but also celebrates shared values for the greater good. Please let us know the favourite organisation in your community - one you enjoy volunteering for, or that makes you proud to be a part of - one that supports you personally in your everyday life, and that defines what you feel community is all about. Based on your suggestions we will then choose our new accounts to follow for October. Thanks so much and thanks for being a part of the Sussex community! Photo ©️ High Commission
AMARA DESCRIBED ENCOUNTER WITH DUCHESS MEGHAN
The little girl was incredibly composed and eloquent as she described her fleeting encounter with Duchess Meghan, whom she revealed, is one of her idols.
“It was incredible. She’s so nice. And when she goes to other countries, like she’s—that’s her home, and she’s family with those other people and I like that about her,” Amara said.
There’s more to this beautiful moment.— Karine Jean-Pierre (@K_JeanPierre) September 29, 2019
Watch and listen to 9 year old Amara talk about what it meant to her to meet the Duchess of Sussex. Beautiful and touching. ❤️
AMARA: "JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF"
“She asked me what I wanted to do one day, and she asked me my name. I said, ‘I want to be a pediatrician’ (Meghan said) 'You can be anything you want.'”
DUCHESS MEGHAN SPEAKS TO HIV POSITIVE MOMS
The Duchess spent the afternoon meeting and talking to many of the women that Mothers2mothers helps and supports, and she brought along some of baby Archie's outgrown clothes for their babies.
“My friends and I just brought some little things. It’s so important to be able to share from our families to yours,” she said.
The deceased Princess Diana dedicated herself to raising awareness about AIDS, and her two sons have taken up her cause, with the same energy and passion.
ARCHIE MEETS ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU
The Sussex Royal Tour of Africa has been historical for many reasons, one of which is the debut of 5-month-old Archie into public life.
Archie was formally introduced to the now-retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a man who was one of the forces for change in South Africa during the apartheid regime.
Archie seems to be a born diplomat and he charmed the dignified Nobel Peace Prize winner into cooing him and giving him a gentle kiss on the forehead.
