The Duchess of Sussex attended her pal and oil tycoon Michael Hess' wedding ceremony on Friday, September 20, wearing a stunning evening gown.

The Duke and Duchess will begin their tour on September 23 in Cape Town, South Africa, where they'll remain for three days before Prince Harry travels to Botswana, Angola, Malawi.

The Royal Couple, together with 5 months previous child Archie, is supposedly planning a tour to Africa. Recently, there have many reports of females getting killed in the country that have also fueled numerous national protests. Nearly as if the Duchess of Sussex was trying to make up for skipping a previous engagement with her friend.

The Duchess of Sussex has made women's rights a focus of her agenda. They will also meet influential women in South Africa, likely to include some public figures, and hundreds of members of the public.

"It would be unusual for them not to address it in the current climate given how much of their official program, particularly the duchess's, is about women and women's issues", a source told the British tabloid. While he is not scheduled for an official appearance on the tour program, this trip is a chance to reintroduce the five-month-old royal to the world.

Harry will also pay tribute to a British soldier killed by an elephant during anti-poaching operations in Malawi when he visits the country to focus attention on efforts to protect endangered animals.
