"I want to thank you again for the warm reception here today, and everywhere myself and my family have been.
"As I said to the young entrepreneurs this morning - Africa will always have a special place for me and my family, and I can’t wait to return."
During a speech at the reception, Meghan delivered a powerful speech, in which she spoke about women's rights, the gender-based violence crisis in South Africa: "I firmly believe that all women have a voice, they just need to feel empowered to use it, and people need to feel encouraged to listen.
"There is a role for all of us here. As women we can listen to one another, and lift each other up, we can raise our boys to be men who value women.
"And for men and boys, you can lead by example and not let your mothers, daughters, sisters, wives and girlfriends ever feel that they are lesser than you."
