Prince Harry Eager to Show South Africa to Meghan & Archie after William, Kate Charity Split

News of the upcoming Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tour to South Africa has become widespread. Delightfully, the Prince has publicly expressed a great longing to experience Africa with his little son. 

Via their Instagram page, @sussexroyal, Prince Harry explained that the tour would kick off in "just a few weeks." He further described Africa as a part of the world that has become a "second home" to him. 

"Our team has helped create a meaningful programme that we're so excited to share with you," he further shared

It was only a few months ago that the Prince and his former actress wife, Markle, welcomed their first child, Archie. The Duke is proving to be every bit the first time father and a proud one too as he expressed excitement at getting to visit Africa with his wife and son.

Today, The Duke of Sussex attends the #ANZACday service at Westminster Abbey with The Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke of Gloucester. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended this service last year in addition to the dawn service. They also paid their respects at the #ANZAC memorial in Sydney during their official tour last fall. Having devoted ten years of service to military duty, including two tours in Afghanistan, The Duke completed his time of service with four weeks with the Australian Defence Force. Their Royal Highnesses remain committed to supporting serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and the families that support them. #ANZACDay commemorates the anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1915. ANZAC Day is a moment to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who lost their lives during the landings, and to honour the sacrifices of men and women in all wars. ANZAC Day has been observed annually in London since King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey, and more than 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets. Members of The Royal Family have continued to honour the servicemen and women globally, and today HRH The Duke of Cambridge also paid his respects at @AucklandMuseum. The Duke of Cambridge is visiting The Commonwealth country on behalf of The Queen to pay tribute to those killed in the Christchurch attacks earlier this year.

The post is only a day old, but it has already gained lots of attention as it confirms rumors that Archie will be accompanying his parents on tour. The Duke's loving words have, however, roused netizens and there are well over 5,000 comments!

“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.

One fan, @_davina_a commented:

"How lovely for the Duke to put a personal note. We can't wait to see the entire family either, much love."

While another, @dooneyskitchen wrote:

"My wife and my son. Cutest thing I have read all morning. So happy for you, Harry. Ignore the haters. Your life is full and complete."

It is not the first time that the Duke and Duchess will be paying a visit to the exotic continent. It is a widely known fact that they have traveled to Africa together several times. It is, however, the very first time for their newborn son, Archie. 

Prince Harry's unending admiration and love for Africa seems to explain it all. The 34-year-old had found a visit to Africa the perfect way to date and "get to know" Markle much better. Also, Prince Harry proposed to Markle using a ring which features a large diamond he discovered in Botswana, "His second home."

Vogue reports that the tour will kick on September 23 and that it will not be limited to South Africa. As the caption of the post reads, Prince Harry will be taking solo trips to Malawi, Angola and Botswana. If nothing else, pictures of little Archie and his parents in Africa are sure to melt hearts!
