The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have

concluded their monumental Africa tour but some impressive moments from the trip still inspire adoration from fans.

One such moment was when Meghan gave an important speech just as the Sussexes were rounding up their trip.

A message of hope

For her final speech in South Africa, the Duchess of Sussex shared an important message of hope that inspired not just the people in the audience but young people all around the world.

She began her speech by recalling how, as a young girl, she would see all these bad news stories on TV and felt despair.

When you constantly see and hear negativity, it can be overwhelming; you can feel powerless, and lost, you can feel different, confused, or like you just don’t belong.

Her message was for any young person feeling the same way right now. Meghan wanted them to know that while the world can sometimes feel "aggressive" and "dangerous" they have the power to change it.

She went on to explain that making a change starts with how a person connects with those around them. At the end of the day, everyone has value, she said, meaning that it's important to show respect to each other.

And if you live your life in that way, your generation will start to value each other in ways the rest of us have not yet been able to do so.

Praises for Meghan

The speech the Duchess of Sussex had a major impact on those who were there as they all cheered loudly when she was done, but even those at home were touched too.

All kinds of positive comments followed the snippets of the speech shared on Sussex's Instagram page.
