Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit a mosque during Cape Town tour

The couple made a trip to Auwal Mosque to meet with people from different faith groups

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have visited a mosque as part of their official royal trip to South Africa. The royal couple toured the place of worship in Cape Town's Bo-Kaap district.

The pair visited Auwal Mosque, the oldest mosque in South Africa, where they saw the country's oldest copy of the Quran.

During their visit to South Africa, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will meet 'well-wishers from different faith groups'

Prince Harry wore a stone-coloured suit for the visit, while the Duchess of Sussex wore a khaki shirt dress, and respected customs by covering her hair with a cream headscarf.

As part of the visit, the pair met "well-wishers from different faith groups".

Earlier in the day, the couple visited Monwabisi Beach to take part in mindfulness and wellness activities with volunteers from a foundation called Waves for Change. The initiative uses surfing to provide mental health support and services to young people in need.

During the coastal engagement, the duke and duchess chatted to young people, took part in a meditation circle and energising dance, and checked out the Commonwealth Litter Project.

The Commonwealth Litter Programme is an NGO that works with global governments to address marine litter.
