The doting parents aren't holding back either on sharing little details with the public about how they are tackling parenthood.

Capturing the public's fascination with Archie, Royal Editor at HELLO! Emily Nash tweeted:

"Harry and Meghan meet Somaya Ebrahim, 81, a former District Six resident, who was in the crowds when the Queen visited in 1947 with her parents and Princess Margaret. She asked them: 'Where's Archie?' and was told 'hes sleeping!' #sussexroyaltour #RoyalTourAfrica."


The royal tour of Africa is the first international engagement the couple has embarked on as a family, since welcoming their son.

Speaking to reporters after a tour of a local school with ActionAid, Meghan reveals how she has managed juggling motherhood and the demands of the royal tour, she explains:

"We're doing well. I think the schedule — they have been very kind to me, because everything is based around Archie's feeding times. So it's a full plate. We're making it work. It's worth it."


A few days into their trip, Harry left Meghan and Archie in South Africa, while he continued the royal tour in Botswana, Malawi, and Angola.

Meghan shared how she has coped since his departure, she reveals:

"Harry has continued on in a couple [of] other countries — we are reuniting today, which I can't wait for, I miss him so much!"


Since announcing their arrival in Africa, Harry has emphasized how important the tour has been in supporting many of the causes he is passionate about.

Sharing the same sentiments, Meghan continues talking to reporters, saying:

"But I think for us it has been a really special trip, because you get to see when you're focusing on the causes that are really important to us, you can see that the impact is good, and it feels meaningful."

According to Daily Mail, royal tours are organized by Buckingham Palace, together with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Harry and Meghan's private office staff.

Their teams work together to plan their daily activities. It is reported this tour was unique because at 5-months-old, Archie is the youngest royal to embark on an international tour.
