Archie going on royal tour to South Africa

Tuesday, 24 Sep, 2019

The trio landed in Cape Town this morning with Meghan carrying little Archie (wearing an adorable bobble hat FYI) and they've already been to their first official engagement of the day.

One of the Duchess of Sussex's favourite tour dresses made a royal reappearance in South Africa on September 23, a year after she wore the perfectly-fitted ensemble in Tonga while she was pregnant with Archie Harrison. One of the workshops Their Royal Highnesses saw was the Mbokodo project which provides self-defense classes and female empowerment workshops to young girls who are overcoming major traumas. He told Cape Town locals that his son was mesmerised by the local landmark Table Mountain, saying: "He was staring out the window as we flew in. looking at Table Mountain".

"The issue is she has introduced an excessive amount of Hollywood entitlement along with her", he mentioned, including that there are similarities between Meghan and Harry's mom, the late Princess Diana.

"So the duchess made a decision to bring a number of his presents to hand on to South African children and families most in need".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to meet anti-apartheid cleric Archbishop Desmond Tutu and other dignitaries in South Africa, but chose to begin their tour in a township known as the country's "murder capital".

The couple received a warm welcome from the public, with Meghan being pulled in for an impromptu dance with one of the welcome dancers. The trio was escorted by airport officials through their terminal, with Meghan lovingly cradling Archie every step of the way. People, which has video of the moment, reports that Prince Harry also gave a speech on the first stop of the tour, at Cape Town's Nyanga township.

Harry later will break away for visits to Botswana, Angola and Malawi.

"My anticipation is that there are many people who are going to hear and interact with South Africa for the very first through their posts", she said.
