He may only be a few months old, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s adorable tot Archie Harrison is quickly becoming the most popular member of the royal family. As a matter of fact, there’s a new report that says the Duchess of Sussex received a special gift for little Archie during her recent visit to an art gallery during her tour of South Africa.
According to Hello Magazine, Markle received a sweet present for baby Archie while she was in Johannesburg earlier this week. That’s when she carried out a secret, unannounced engagement during her 10-day trip with her husband and their four-month-old son.

Following our tradition of rotating the accounts we follow on a monthly basis, for the month of October we are celebrating “community.” • Over the last week on their official tour to Southern Africa, The Duke and Duchess have had a poignant reminder of the importance of community - the sense of support and togetherness that is felt from feeling like you are a part of something that respects difference but also celebrates shared values for the greater good. Please let us know the favourite organisation in your community - one you enjoy volunteering for, or that makes you proud to be a part of - one that supports you personally in your everyday life, and that defines what you feel community is all about. Based on your suggestions we will then choose our new accounts to follow for October. Thanks so much and thanks for being a part of the Sussex community! Photo ©️ High Commission
The former Hollywood actress visited a museum to view the work of contemporary artist James Delany in Victoria Yards. It’s described as a creative space with art galleries, design studios and stores. While there, Meghan was delightfully surprised when she received a small pair of dungarees for Archie from Tshepo’s showroom. What’s more, she also received a pair of skinny jeans for herself as a gift, too.
Lesedi Masemola, the brand's manager, said: "From what we’ve seen on the internet she’s the type of person who loves skinny fit so that’s what we made. When she saw the jeans the words she said were ‘oh my, oh my’ she was very impressed she loved the jeans she said she couldn’t wait to try them on and said ‘wow’. And when she saw the dungarees she said ‘very cute”, I think they are very, very lovely.”
And while Meghan’s skinny jeans are available to order, unfortunately, Archie’s dungarees are not. That’s because they were a special order that was made for the youngest member of the royal family. Talk about a great keepsake!

While in Johannesburg today, The Duchess of Sussex visited Victoria Yards, which celebrates the power of community, bringing local artisans and “makers” together to rebuild, support and learn from each other on a holistic level. It was an exceptional afternoon where The Duchess had the chance to connect with the children and founders of the phenomenal programme for kids’ development Timbuktu in The Valley. She was also struck by the local denim designer who founded eponymous brand Tshepo who shared this info about the logo for his line: “The crown on my jeans represents the three ladies who raised me. Enjoy wearing this crown.” Such a beautiful and touching sentiment! Artists, artisans, sculptors, metal workers and carpenters are all part of the fabric of Victoria Yards, but it also utilizes the power of The DICE programme which supports several other local organisations in their work with marginalised youth and women. These include: 94 Colours (run by The Duchess’ guides for the day, Hector and Sibusiso), CDP (a development programme for young unemployed and marginalised women that provides training to start creative enterprises), Enke (rebuilds the confidence and self-belief of unemployed youth through training and practical experience), 26’10 South (an architecture firm designing a local youth centre) and ReimagiNation (works with local secondary school students to create a social and creative enterprising mindset). Stay tuned for more updates from this special afternoon... #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s 10-day trip to South Africa has so far been hailed as a great success. The royal couple is back at home at Frogmore Cottage with their son Archie. Now as far as when the public will get to see Archie Harrison again remains to be seen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made it clear in the past that they want to protect the young tot’s privacy and keep him away from the spotlight as much as possible.
