The Province of Natal (Afrikaans: Provinsie van Natal), commonly referred to as the Natal Province (Afrikaans: Natal Provinsie) was a province of South Africa from 1910 until 1994. Its capital was Pietermaritzburg. The Natal Province included the bantustan of KwaZulu. The majority of the white population were English-speaking, causing Natal to become the only province to vote "no" to the creation of a republic in the referendum of 1960.[2] In the latter part of the 1980s, Natal was in a state of violence that only ended with the first multiracial elections in 1994.[3]

In 1994, the territory of Natal was redesignated into KwaZulu-Natal following re-incorporation of the KwaZulu bantustan.
