    • On Sunday morning, as part of a sweet Instagram post on the official Sussex Royal account, Prince Harry shared a personal message about how excited he is for the tour and to share his love of South Africa with Meghan Markle and his son, Archie Harrison.

        This fall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will embark on their second official royal tour, this time visiting South Africa—and yes, baby Archie Harrison is joining them.

        On Sunday morning, the official Sussex Royal account shared some new details about the upcoming trip and Harry took the chance to share a personal note about the tour too.

        In addition to all of the good he and Meghan will get to do on the tour, Harry says he's excited for the chance to introduce his wife and son to a part of the world that means so much to him.

        In Harry's own words:

        "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
