Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie is accompanying his parents on their royal tour of South Africa, and now he’s made his first official outing of the trip! The almost 5-month-old joined the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they met Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe at the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation in Cape Town.
“‘Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!’ – The Duke and Duchess,” the @sussexroyal Instagram account read, next to a black-and-white photo from the special engagement.

Arch meets Archie! This morning The Duke and Duchess were honoured to introduce their son Archie, to Archbishop, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka. The Archbishop, a globally respected figure in anti-apartheid movement, is one of the world’s great champions of equality, and has spent his life tirelessly battling injustice. Their Royal Highnesses have joined The Archbishop and Thandeka to learn more about the work of The Tutu and Leah Legacy Foundation, and see first-hand how they are focussing on global awareness of the critical issues affecting the world. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo ©️ Reuters
People reports that Meghan spoke about little Archie’s personality during the visit, at one point calling him “an old soul.”
On Wednesday’s episode of “The Real,” Loni’s Royal Report filled in the details about the latest stops on the historic tour, and guest co-host Amanda Seales revealed that her own mom is a huge fan of the royals!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on a 10-day visit to Africa. Hopefully Archie will come along for other engagements as the trip continues!
