This fall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) will embark on their second official royal tour, this time visiting South Africa—and yes, baby Archie Harrison (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab):

The Sussex Royal account (opens in new tab) also revealed that Harry, Meghan, and Archie (opens in new tab) will visit South Africa together and that Harry will also be visiting Malawi, Angola, and Botswana, during the trip.

"Our monthly social awareness approach follows key accounts that inspire us and highlight those working towards positive change," Sussex Royal wrote in the remainder of the post's caption. "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."

Counting down until this tour and crossing our fingers that Harry and Meghan take control of the Sussex Royal Instagram (opens in new tab) during the trip.
