Meghan Markle wears headscarf in public for the first time (photos)

The Duchess of Sussex today donned a headscarf as she joined her husband at South Africa's first and oldest mosque.

To mark Heritage Day, a public holiday in South Africa when the nation celebrates its culture, diversity and traditions, the Duke and Duchess paid a visit to the historic Auwal Mosque in Bo-Kaap, Cape Town.

Meghan changed out of her casual clothes and covered her head with a scarf and wore a floor-length gown - and even helped a lady with her headscarf once inside the mosque.

The couple were met by Imam Sheikh Ismail Londt and Muslim community leader, Mohamed Groenwald and a group of faith leaders, including a representative of the Church of England, the Chief Rabbi and Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth leaders, and students who participated in the London-Cape Town interfaith exchange.
