Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and baby Archie officially kicked off their royal tour of Africa on Monday when they touched down in Cape Town, South Africa. It’s expected to be a nonstop whirlwind for the Sussex family, who will be visiting South Africa, Botswana, Angola, and Malawi in the coming days.

The family’s 10-day trip began on Monday with a trip to the Nyanga township in South Africa. According to People, the couple is spending some time in a workshop in the township with the NGO Justice Desk, which teaches children about their rights, self-awareness, and safety. The program, People noted, is supported by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

On Tuesday, the couple will spend their second day in South Africa at the beach with the non-profit Waves for Change, a charity that works with local surfers to provide surf lessons and mental health support to local young people. According to Town&Country, the couple will also spend a bit of time with the Lunchbox Fund, which provides daily meals for South African schoolchildren.

Wednesday will mark another important stop in South Africa as the couple sits down with The Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his wife at their legacy foundation. From there, Harry will jet off to the next stops — Botswana, Angola, and Malawi — while Meghan stays behind in South Africa with Archie.

For his part, Harry will meet with several nonprofits and will visit a working demining field in Angola, as his mother Princess Diana did before him.

The couple will end their tour together back in South Africa by meeting with local youth and entrepreneurs to discuss the rise in unemployment before attending a meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife Dr. Tshepo Motsepe.

“I wanted to ensure that our first visit as a family, with my wife by my side, focused on the significant challenges facing millions of South Africans, while acknowledging the hope we feel so strongly here,” Prince Harry said in a speech about their 10-day visit during their first stop in South Africa. “We are so incredibly grateful to be able to listen and learn from you about the issues that define your daily lives in these communities.”
