Prince Harry Fist-Bumps Children on First Day of South African Tour

Prince Harry shared fist bumps with a row of children gathered to greet him and Meghan Markle on September 23 in Nyanga, a township in Cape Town, South Africa.

In a video uploaded by The Justice Desk, a human-rights organization based in Cape Town, Prince Harry can be seen holding out his fist to a child in a line of flag-waving kids. After the child reciprocates the gesture, Harry bounces along the line and repeats the move with a second child.

The video was taken as part of Harry and Meghan’s first day of an official 10-day tour of South Africa, during which Harry will also visit Angola, Malawi, and Botswana before reuniting with Markle and their son, Archie.

During the Justice Desk event, Markle said that she was visiting the country not only as a member of the royal family, but also "as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister.

“We are encouraged to hear your president work toward taking the next steps in preventing gender-based violence through education and necessary changes to reinforce the values of modern South Africa,” Markle added.

According to the South African Police Service, 2,930 women were murdered in South Africa from April 2017 to March 2018; 36,731 “sexual offences” against women were reported during the same period.

The couple’s son, 4-month-old Archie, was not with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their first full day of engagements in South Africa. He was photographed earlier in the day as they arrived at the airport. Credit: The Justice Desk via Storyful
