When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle embarked on their 10-day tour to South Africa, the #AmINext campaign was initiated in the country. It protested the brutal murder and rape of a 19-year-old student, Uyinene Mrwetyana.

The Duchess of Sussex personally addressed the movement with a solemn gesture. But, now, some ghouls have stolen her honorary item.

Uyinene was attacked at a post office where her killer lured her in. She was then tortured into submission. Away from cameras, Meghan privately visited the place and tied a ribbon to honor the innocent soul. It showed that the Royals stand against gender-based violence and femicide.

Taken away as a souvenir

According to DailyMail UK, heartless trophy hunters have seized the poignant yellow fabric-band. It was untied and taken as a macabre token from the Duchess of Sussex. The momento will most likely land in a collection, decorated for keepsake in some wealthy house. Maybe, one of Meghan's fans carried out the grisly act.

Nonetheless, Prince Harry's wife will be deeply upset to learn that the moving message of support she left in memory of the tragic teenager was robbed. It can be deemed as a strike on her compassion. Meghan's secret pilgrimage and respect to Uyinene has been exploited.

Meghan won't slow down

Her Royal Highness is a warrior of women's rights. One way or the other, she'll keep strengthening her noble cause While in South Africa, Meghan chaired a breakfast for influential females. This solo-engagement focused to promote organizers, activists, and campaigners who seek to better the current conditions.

We feel sorry and disappointed for such a sick behavior of collectors. Uyinene Mrwetyana's tragedy will not be forgotten easily. Share this and send a prayer for her soul.
