omersukrugoksu/iStock(LONDON) -- Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were greeted by music, dancing and kids Monday as they kicked off their 10-day tour of South Africa.

Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, arrived holding hands as they visited a township that provides female empowerment training to young girls in the community and teaches children about their rights, self-awareness and safety.

The duke and duchess were spotted clapping along and learning to dance from the dancers who greeted them. They both also crouched down to say hello to the kids who gathered for their welcome.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Cape Town, South Africa, earlier Monday with their nearly 5-month-old son Archie in tow. The couple took a commercial flight from London to South Africa, a change from their personal travel over the summer when they faced criticism for using a private jet.

The couple's next engagement will take them to District Six Museum, which documents the destruction in a residential area of inner-city Cape Town that took place during apartheid.

Harry and Meghan plan to tour the museum and then take part in a community cooking activity with former residents who were displaced during apartheid and have been reunited through the museum's Homecoming Center.

Archie is expected to stay at home with the couple's nanny during Harry and Meghan's engagements Monday. The baby was spotted arriving with his mom and dad in South Africa wearing a hat that bore resemblance to one worn by Harry when he was a baby and carried by his mom, the late Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan's visit to South Africa with Archie marks their first official overseas tour as a family of three. Meghan gave birth to Archie in May and this 10-day tour is her first since maternity leave.

The tour is expected to focus on themes including youth empowerment, the environment and female empowerment, a topic Meghan will highlight in a handful of solo engagements.

The Sussexes' South Africa trip is on behalf of the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office, according to Buckingham Palace. Harry will also visit Malawi and Angola during the family's trip, and will also undertake a "working visit" to Botswana.
