Baby Archie is making his rounds, and he’s cute as a button!
Today, Meghan Markle and Princess Harry took their five-month-old son along for his first official royal meeting in Cape Town, South Africa with famous anti-apartheid activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe. The couple looked adorable with their little one as they strolled inside the premises to “meet the arch.” Moments leading up to the meeting were captured on the Sussex Royal Instagram stories.
The royal family of three met at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, which contributes to the development of youth and leadership, facilitates discussions about social justice and common human purposes. The foundation’s mission is to spread the teachings and thoughts of the archbishop to future generations. “Thank you for your concern and interest in the welfare of our people, said the Archbishop to the young royals, according to the foundation’s website. “It’s very heartwarming, let me tell you, very heartwarming to realize that you really, genuinely are caring people.”
The meeting between the royal family and Archbishop Tutu was filled with laughs and pleasantries. Prince Harry joked that Archie “constantly wants to stand,” as proven in the photo below.
Photos were captured of the meeting show baby Archie in great spirits.
Piyushi Kotecha, CEO of the Desmond & Leah Legacy Foundation, presented baby Archie with a gift basket including beaded bracelets hand-made by members of Ikamva Labantu, signed children’s books Desmond and the Mean Word, and Children’s Bible Stories written by the Archbishop and a set of portable and recyclable lap-desks from the Tutu Desk Campaign.
This is the first royal tour for baby Archie, who was born on May 6th. Markle will be joining Harry on visits in South Africa before he embarks on a solo trip to Botswana, Angola and Malawi.
