It appears that Prince Harry is looking forward to his and Meghan Markle’s royal tour to South Africa. That being said, the Duke of Sussex is apparently excited to also introduce her and their baby boy, Archie Harrison, to what he would consider as his ‘second home.’
In a post on the Duke and Duchess’ joint Instagram, he is quoted saying: ‘In just a few weeks our family will be taking its very first official tour to Africa, a part of the world that over the past 2 decades has been a second home to me. Our team’s helped create a meaningful program that we are so excited to share with you.’
He then went on to also add a ‘personal note’ – ‘I can’t wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! We’ll see all of you very soon.’

“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 For the official tour, the family will be visiting South Africa together 🇿🇦 and The Duke will be carrying out visits to Malawi 🇲🇼, Angola 🇦🇴 and Botswana 🇧🇼 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Our monthly social awareness approach follows key accounts that inspire us and highlight those working towards positive change. As a lead up to the tour, for the month of September, we wish to celebrate the beauty of this wonderful continent as a whole: from local organisations working hard to better the environment, to the young leaders paving the way for a better future for the Commonwealth and beyond. These selected groups are a small representation of the incredible work being done in Africa today from countless people, local communities and organisations.

It was also revealed on the platform that throughout this month, they would use their account to highlight African causes only, ‘from local organizations working hard to better the environment, to young leaders [who are] paving the way for a better future for the Commonwealth and beyond.’
As fans know, this is what the pair has decided to do on their social media, more precisely, exclusively focusing on bringing awareness to a certain cause every month and following only accounts related to that.
For instance, June was all about Pride while July was when they discussed only about environmental causes.
Previously, a source told ET that Meghan was fully involved in the preparations of their African tour while also on maternity leave after welcoming baby Archie.
Both Meghan and Harry love philanthropic work and are also big fans of Africa so it makes sense they are looking forward to this.
