Prince Harry, Meghan and their son Archie are due to carry out their first royal tour as a family of three this month.
On Sunday, hours after Harry opened up about his excitement at taking his wife and son to South Africa, the couple revealed they are starting the tour in 21 days or September 23th!
Prince Harry and Meghan announced their Sussex Royal Instagram account story. The story also included Harry’s sweet message.
“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,” it reads. “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.”
If you are fan of the royal couple, you already know how important Africa is to them. In their engagement interview, Harry and Meghan revealed that they visited Botswana early on in their relationship and stayed for about a week, “in the middle of nowhere.”
They returned again for Meghan’s 36th birthday, in 2017, and not long ago posted a photo of the trip which showed Harry and Meghan assisting with conversation efforts with elephants.
Meghan and Archie will join Harry in South Africa, but it looks like Harry will be making solo stops in Angola, Botswana and Malawi.
As Sunday marked the start of a new month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also used the post to continue their monthly tradition of shining a spotlight on different groups of inspiring charities.
Among the selected groups are Nelson Mandela Foundation, African Wildlife Foundation, The Halo Trust, National Geographic, including Sentebale, which was founded by Harry and Prince Seeiso.
