On Wednesday, Meghan and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, officially made his royal debut on South Africa tour. The royal couple visited the South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and took Archie Harrison with them for what was his first-ever royal engagement.
While his surprise appearance resulted in many adorable photos, now a never-before-seen photo of the little tot surfaced. Well actually two photos!
The new photos shows baby Archie clinging to his mother as she and Prince Harry pose with a book called “Everyday Ubuntu” gifted to them by the Archbishop.
Ubuntu means ‘humanity’ and is often translated as ‘I am because we are,’ or ‘humanity towards others’. It was written by his granddaughter Mungi Ngomane and is based on an ancient Southern African philosophy about how to live life well, together.
Posting the photos on her Instagram account, author Mungi wrote: “Arch meets Archie meanwhile… I have died and gone to heaven. I hope the royals enjoy my book.”
Archie was so excited for his first public visit that he couldn’t contain himself, letting some drool slip out.
“Oh, Bubba!” the former Meghan revealed his nickname, before she wiped him clean.
Harry also revealed that Archie is “so busy, constantly wanting to stand.” Meghan added, “Exploring.”
For his first engagement, little Archie wore blue and white striped dungarees selling. His outfit gave a sweet nod to his family as it was very similar to a look Princess Diana dressed Prince Harry in back in 1985.
After the meeting with the Archbishop, Harry flew to Botswana while Meghan carried out solo engagements.
She stopped at UK-South Africa tech hub, the Woodstock Exchange, and then at mothers2mothers; where she donated clothing that her son Archie has already outgrown.
Harry and Meghan’s South Africa tour doesn’t end until October 2. But there’s no word on whether Archie will make another appearance during the trip. For now, we will just have to wait and see.
