Royals visit the oldest mosque in South Africa & view the oldest Qu’ran

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited the oldest mosque in South Africa during their tour of the commonwealth country.

The royals who are in the country to voice support for various causes were seen participating in workshops and celebrating Heritage Day on the second day of the trip.

As part of their visit, Their Royal Highnesses visited the Auwal Mosque – the first and oldest Mosque in South Africa.

Standing as a symbol of the freedom of former slaves to worship, the Mosque hosts events with Muslim, Christian and Jewish young leaders, and encourages friendship and understanding between South Africa’s varied communities.

The Duke and Duchess also got to view the first known manuscript of the Qu’ran in Africa, drafted by Tuan Guru from memory, whilst he was imprisoned on Robben Island.
