You know what Harry and Meghan did once they arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on Monday? They worked. Because it’s what they like to do and what they do best. And if you thought Day 2 was going to be any different, think again.

For the second day of their African tour, Harry and Meg spent the first part of the day on Monwabisi Beach for events with the charities Waves for Change, The Lunchbox Fund and Sea Change Project. It was windy on the beach as the royal couple took part in a team-building exercise with surf mentors, looking a little awkward while they tried to keep up. According to royal reporter Omid Scobie, the Sussexes also participated in a mental health exercise that “promotes positive thinking” and revealed they each wind down their days with reflection and meditation, so this one was clearly a fit.

They posed for pics with the staffers and children and were gifted with a onesie for Archie as well as a framed copy of Waves for Changes’ PowerHand exercise “which teaches children how to calm down and reflect on strengths.” That might be the sweetest, most considerate and well-thought-out gift the couple have ever received.

Harry and Meghan did an interview with the media on-hand, sharing their views on the mental health and consciousness crises around the world as well as how mental health differs from mental illness. Their passion for breaking the stigma was on display and the couple also spoke about how great their first two days in Cape Town had been and just how much they are loving South Africa so far.

Harry and Meghan then moved on to a visit to Auwal Masjid, South Africa’s oldest mosque, and switched up to slightly more formal (and appropriate) attire than the casual outfits they sported on the beach earlier in the day. They spoke with faith leaders and checked out the first known manuscript of the Qu’ran in South Africa.

The Sussexes also watched a cultural performance on Chippiani Street and of course Harry danced, though his moves were nowhere near as good as his wife’s on Monday.

Meghan headed back to Archie while Harry set sail on his own, joining the city’s Marine Unit to learn more about their efforts to fight abalone poaching, but perhaps we’ll get an Archie sighting tomorrow.

The Sussexes are set to meet with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his wife at their legacy foundation but before that, Meghan will be making a stop at Mothers2mothers, a charity that trains and employs women living with HIV as community health workers. The Duchess has reportedly brought along some of Archie’s hand-me-downs and books to donate, so it seems like the perfect time to show off their little bundle.
