Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going on a tour in Sothern Africa, and they are bringing Archie along with them. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the announcement earlier this week via their official Instagram account @sussexroyal, revealing that they had been asked by The Foreign and Commonwealth Office to visit Southern Africa. The Instagram post also explained that apart from South Africa, Prince Harry will also be visiting Botswana, Malawi, and Angola, but without Meghan and Baby Sussex as Archie is affectionately nicknamed. This Southern Africa tour will be the first the Duke and Duchess do as a family, and they are both excited to meeting people and visiting the local communities.
Prince Harry and Meghan's Africa tour will not be taking place until the fall, but there is a lot of planning and organizing to do beforehand. Earlier this year rumors were saying that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were planning on moving to Africa for a period of two to six months. It was suggested that sending Prince Harry and Meghan there would be a great way to make use of their popularity as a couple in one of the African Commonwealth countries. The reports were not officially denied nor confirmed, but it is safe to assume the rumors might have come from the planning stages of their tour to Sothern Africa.
As reported by ET Online, Prince Harry and Meghan are no strangers to Africa, and this definitely would not be their first trip to the continent. Prince Harry has referred to Africa as his "second home" and has also explained that he and Meghan spent some time in Botswana when their relationship was still in the early stages.
Naturally, that means the couple has lovely memories from there, and are most likely excited to be returning to Africa, this time with little Archie. In 2006 Prince Harry founded the charity Sentebale together with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in honor of their late mothers, and he has worked hard to improve the lives of children in poverty who are suffering from HIV/AIDS.
Prince Harry's brother Prince William has brought his children along when he and Kate Middleton have embarked on tours, and they are most likely happy to help with any tips or advice for Meghan and Prince Harry's Southern Africa trip.
