The Duke and Duchess visited the Bo-Kaap area to mark Heritage Day - a celebration of the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that makes up the rainbow nation of South Africa.
On Tuesday, South Africans marked the day by getting together, cooking, braai'ing and sharing meals with loved ones.
But as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle showed, it also serves as an opportunity to share and pass on cultural and nutritional knowledge.
The Bo-Kaap was named a SA Heritage Protection Site earlier this year, ensuring that its unique characteristics are preserved for future generations.
Translated from Afrikaans, Bo-Kaap means ‘Above the Cape’.
The earliest development in the Bo-Kaap area was undertaken in the 1760's by Jan de Waal.
Subsequently, the area became known as Waalendorp. It has also been known as the Malay Quarter, the Slamse Buurt, and Scotcheskloof.
