The Sussexes began their 10-day tour of Southern Africa on Monday and I would love to hear your Thoughts! Please weigh in below on the fashion, the causes highlighted, the speeches given — all of it! I’ve also shared some suggested royal tour readings below.

(ICYMI, re-upping my site’s comment policy: Thoughtful discussion is a key part of So Many Thoughts. I encourage everyone to share their ideas, including what you like — and don’t like — on a topic or look. I only ask that you do so mindfully and constructively. If your comment is mean spirited, a personal attack, or hateful in any way, I reserve the right to remove it. )
