Footage of a Capetonian woman is going viral for all the best reasons; the Auntie called the Duke and Dutchess over as if they were old friends.
Cape Town, South Africa – During a visit from His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex, also more casually known as Prince Harry and Meghan, a South African has gone viral.
It is no secret that we love the royal couple and we’re thrilled to see them fall in love with South Africa while on their royal tour. Parts of their trip have been featured on our Good Things Guy Facebook page, and we shared a story about how their visit was a significant tourism boost for South Africa. What we haven’t shared yet is the story about the friendly tannie that the royal couple met while walking through Cape Town.
A video of their encounter was shared on Facebook, and South Africans can’t get over how typically South African it was. During their visit to District 6, they were welcomed by the entire community.
It was during this visit the royals were introduced to Koesisters (not to be confused with Koeksisters) and Samoosas. After their visit to the different places in District 6, Prince Harry and Meghan walked passed the crowds waiting to meet and greet them.
One woman called out to the couple as if they were old friends, gave out hugs and then asked where their son was. The entire interaction has South Africans smiling.
The reason we can’t stop smiling is that we all have that one Auntie who embraces us and asks questions. It was a completely relatable moment for every South African watching.
Take a look at the best South African moment of the royal South African tour below.
We are also so proud of Archbishop Desmond Tutu! During the South African tour, the Duke presented Archbishop Tutu with the “Insignia of an Honorary Member of The Order of the Companions of Honour” on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.
