Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan showed off their dance moves as they began a tour of several African countries.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their first overseas trip since the birth of their first child, baby Archie.

On Monday the couple were in South Africa's Nyanga township, known as the country's "murder capital".

They visited human rights organization 'The Justice Desk' which works with vulnerable children.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUCHESS OF SUSSEX MEGHAN, SAYING: ''I read a quote a few weeks ago and it resonated with me as I have been watching what's been happening here and your active efforts.

Maya Angelou, a legendary poet and civil rights activist, once said, 'each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it, possibly without claiming it, she stands up for all women.'' Activists have warned of an epidemic of violence against women in South Africa after a spate of killings and rapes in a country with one of the world's highest murder rates.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUKE OF SUSSEX, PRINCE HARRY, SAYING: ''I'm truly inspired by your resilience, your spirit, your sense of community and your belief in a better future for everyone here.

I applaud you for the movement and we know you haven't been heard before but change is coming.

Now is the time to come together as a community and we applaud those of you who are leading the way for South Africa's ongoing transformation.'' Harry and Meghan also visited the District 6 museum that honours thousands of families forcibly removed during the apartheid era.
