Duchess of Sussex Remembers Murdered Cape Town Student

Whilst Harry continues his individual appointments throughout Africa, Meghan took the opportunity to pay tribute to 19 year old University of Cape Town Student Uyinene Mrwetyana. She was brutally raped and murdered in a senseless fashion earlier this year.

Her death led to a movement all around South Africa which has included street protests against gender based violence. This is not an issue that is restricted to South Africa but violence against women is described as 'rampant' in South Africa.

Meghan tied a yellow ribbon at the post office where the murder allegedly took place. 

The visit was low key and reported by the duchess on hers and Harry's Instagram account. Meghan had let it be known before the tour that she would keep some of her appointments low key during the time that Harry was on his solo engagements, so as not to detract from Harry's work.
