The province of Natal became the modern province of KwaZulu-Natal in 1993.
the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Natal (meaning Christmas in Portuguese) 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. In the latter part of the 1980s, Natal was in a state of violence that only ended with the first multiracial elections in 1994.

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