Well we already know how Africa holds a special place in Prince Harry’s heart. And it seems that his baby Archie has inherited his close connection with the country.
Five-month-old Archie stole the show in South Africa after making a surprise appearance when Harry and Meghan met Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
In the ITV’s new documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Harry reveals that his baby boy was “making more noise” than ever before during their royal tour earlier this year.
“He clearly loves Africa as well because he’s been happy looking out the window,” Harry revealed. “He found his voice here. He was bouncing up and down and making more noise than he’s ever made before and he is smiling the whole time.”
Proud mom Meghan added, “We thought he was happy before. He’s the happiest here. He’s been so happy the past two days.”
Baby Archie Harrison attended his first royal “engagement” on day three of the South Africa tour, when his parents took him to meet with famed anti-apartheid activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.
Calling the meeting “huge and significant,” Meghan said in the new documentary: “I think Archie will look back on that in so many years and that right from the beginning of his life, he was fortunate enough to have this moment with one of the best and most impactful leaders of our time. So, it’s really special.”
Although Africa is a very special place for both Harry and Meghan, the couple doesn’t plan to move to the continent anytime soon.
“I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment,” Harry also said in the documentary. “We just came from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place to base ourselves, of course, it would.
“But with all the problems that are going on there, I just don’t see how we’d be able to really make as much difference as we’d want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings.”
