The couple has always been willing to experiment and do things never before seen.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will soon be starting with their royal tour to Southern Africa, with it starting on Monday, so in preparation, the royal couple decided to test their fans on how good their royal family knowledge is. Always being in the know and modern, the couple posted a series of questions on Instagram Stories which allowed the fans to answer them online. This is something we have never before seen from a member of the royal family, so hats off for Prince Harry and Meghan for always doing something previously unheard of.
The quiz started with a message which read: “As we countdown to the official Southern African tour, we wanted to test you on some Royal Family history.” Questions included: “How old was the Duke of Sussex when he first visited the continent of Africa,” and: “In what year did the Duchess of Sussex become Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust?”
It has been quite a busy period for the royals, tons of royal engagements for both of them, as Meghan finally returned to her royal duties after months of maternity leave. The two did enjoy a baby-free trip over the weekend to attend Misha Nonoo’s wedding in Rome, with Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie also being present. The pair arrived there on Thursday and stayed until Saturday when they returned to pick up Archie and prepare for the upcoming Africa tour, which meant that they had to miss out on the post-wedding celebrations. The Duchess was seen on Saturday morning at the airport in Rome, ready to board a plane.
It seems that Prince Harry is the one most excited, as he has already shown it in a personal message he posted on the official Sussex Royal Instagram account, stating he can’t wait to take the two of them to South Africa. He wrote: “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.”
The royal tour will be a bit longer for Harry, as he will continue after they visit South Africa as a family, with him going on solo visits to Malawi, Angola and Botswana. The continent is a very special place for both Harry and Meghan, as the Prince spent a lot of time there, having worked on multiple charities located here. One such organization is Sentebale, which he founded to help young people affected by HIV in Botswana and Lesotho. The two also sent time in Botswana on a romantic break in 2017 just before getting engaged.
