Prince Harry is just so excited about his upcoming trip to Africa with his family that he just can’t help but tell the world about it. As a matter of fact, the Duke of Sussex recently shared a sweet message about his wife Meghan Markle and their son baby Archie Harrison before their hotly anticipated royal tour of Africa.
While there’s no doubt that Prince Harry has always had a strong connection to Africa, this time around his trip is going to be a little different. That’s because it will be the first time that he will be travelling with Meghan and Archie as a family of three.
According to The Today Show, the proud husband and father recently shared a touching post on the royal couple’s social media account, telling followers that he can’t wait to introduce his wife and son to his second home.

“In just a few weeks our family will be taking its first official tour to Africa, a region of the world that over the past two decades has been a second home to me. Our team has helped create a meaningful programme that we’re so excited to share with you. On a personal note, I can’t wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! We’ll see all of you very soon.” - The Duke For the official tour, the family will be visiting South Africa together 🇿🇦 and The Duke will be carrying out visits to Malawi 🇲🇼, Angola 🇦🇴 and Botswana 🇧🇼 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Our monthly social awareness approach follows key accounts that inspire us and highlight those working towards positive change.

And while there’s no doubt that the Sussexes are getting ready for this much-anticipated trip, many royal fans also can’t wait to see photos from their visit as well. That’s because this will be yet another opportunity for them to see Archie Harrison with his famous parents.
Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made it clear that they plan on raising little Archie as a private citizen. But seeing how the Sussexes are two royals who are always in the spotlight, the young tot will be accompanying his parents on their royal engagements and their public appearances.
The last time that the Sussexes were spotted as a family together was at a polo match and charity event a few days after Archie Harrison’s christening back in July. Since then the three-month-old has been spending a lot of his time at home with his parents at Frogmore Cottage.
