By  | 

As a Duchess, you can expect to travel the world.

As the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, however, you can expect to visit troubled areas, especially those where, according to BBC News, “sexual violence and violent crimes are the norm.”

Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, visited the Nyanga township in South Africa recently, where she praised the center’s work against violence and sex crimes toward women.

She added, “And just on one personal note, may I just say that while I’m here with my husband as a member of the Royal Family … I am here with you as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color and as your sister.”

Most recently, she was spotted meeting with religious leaders, including parliamentarians, grassroots leaders in Nyanga at Mbokodo, community activists and the first female rabbi in Cape Town, South Africa.

Markle was also seen tying a ribbon at the site where 19-year-old Cape Town, South Africa, student Uyinene Mrwetyana was murdered last month.

She paid her respects and showed solidarity with those who have taken a stand against gender-based violence and femicide.
