Meghan Markle wows in Malawian-made dress for royal tour

Malawian designer Mayamiko is making international headlines with her ethical label after the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle,  stepped out for her first royal tour engagement  with a patterned monochrome wrap dress  ‘made in Malawi’.

Meghan wants to make it known that she is dressing for a worthy cause that supports African business.

The 38-year-old royal chose a £69 black and white wrap dress from Malawian brand Mayamiko as she joined Prince Harry, 35, in Cape Town,  at the start of the African royal tour.

The lightweight cotton dress costs £69 (About K70 000) and has already sold out online in a show of the royal’s extraordinary influence.

The decision to wear Mayamiko is a nod to Prince Harry’s scheduled visit to Malawi during the second part of the royal tour.

Mayamiko works with a charity set up by Italian entrepreneur Paola Masperi that supports young creatives in Malawi by teaching them about sustainable and ethical fashion trading.

According to the brand’s website, the project currently provides training in sewing and tailoring as well as financial and business skills to local, disadvantaged women, many of whom are affected by the HIV pandemic or who are carers of HIV orphans.

Stupid and backward thinking. Is it okay for old men to marry young women, then? The world has moved on. Let modern men like Harry dispel the myth about marrying older women. It’s perfectly okay for young men to marry older women. Young women have married older wrinkly men and society have thought it is OK.

Well put. To each his own. There isn’t a big
age difference. Everyone is entitled to their
opinion , time’s have changed and they are
still changing. Change is good. It helps you
grow mentally. Take a deep breath and be
open and ready to grow
