Us Weekly: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Son Archie Reportedly Strong Enough to Briefly Sit up for a Few Seconds

Baby Archie is growing so fast, and his parents are super proud of him as he makes his debut appearance on the royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with their 4-month-old son, Archie, are currently on their first tour as a family to the African continent.

The Royal family recently visited popular South African Archbishop and activist of human rights, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

An Instagram post by "@sussexroyal" shows Archbishop Tutu kissing the tot's forehead as Meghan looks on. This is Archie's first visit on tour, and he left a lasting impression on the mind of the public.

With the "Oh Happy Day" song in the background, a lengthy video was posted on Instagram, showing Archie dancing in his mother's laps while giving Archbishop Tutu a high-five.

Both Archie and his father were seen smiling at each other, as they make their entrance into The Legacy Foundation to meet the Bishop. 

Archie's mother joked with Thandeka that the baby would have to get used to the cameras in the future, while Ms. Tutu jovially said the toddler was "going to be a ladies' man."

The happy baby giggled at the Archbishop's daughter, a gesture that made his mother jokingly say he "likes to flirt." Reactions from fans have been awesome as they are thrilled with the smiling and laughing gesture of Archie. One fan said:

"He's the cutest. I'm literally crying happy tears. Archie's so beautiful. What a happy baby too."

Another described him as 'perfection'. While one fan said:

"Seriously in tears rn. This family is to gorgeous."

From the videos and pictures, it's quite clear that Archie has grown to be a really strong and healthy baby. In fact, at just four months, according to US Weekly, Archie's strength allows him to sit up for a few seconds!

A source revealed to US Weekly saying:

"He’s a very strong baby, he can even sit up for a few seconds"

Happy Heritage Day South Africa! 🇿🇦 • Today we are celebrating the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that make up the rainbow nation. Bo Kaap streets filled with colour and music while Their Royal Highnesses were welcomed to one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Cape Town. The area has seen inter-community tension rise over the last few years, yet days like today show how faith, traditions, food and music bring people together, and celebrate the things that unite each and every one of us. The Duke and Duchess are so happy to have been invited to the festivities in Bo Kaap today, and were overwhelmed by the amazing welcome. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica • Photo ©️ photos PA images / SussexRoyal

While speaking to a news outlet, the Duchess of Sussex discusses how she balances her schedule on tour and being a mother. She said:

" 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."

Notwithstanding, she also admitted that she is excited to be on tour, which is their first since they welcomed baby Archie. She said, "We're making it work, It's worth it."

Meghan and her son had to stay back in South Africa while her husband made unaccompanied visits to other African countries like Angola, Botswana, and Malawi.

In Tembisa, Johannesburg, today The Duke and Duchess visited to meet young entrepreneurs at the YES hub - a hive for creativity and social enterprise. Their visit was an amazing tour of the ingenuity and opportunity – seeing businesses that varied from food to essential sanitary products for local women. During their visit, they were able to sample food from ‘Chef Mish’ - a local masterchef winner - which he makes at the site as part of his catering business and cafe. They then joined YES community members to take part in training and tests that will help them gain skills and find work. On the third stop today, entrepreneur Moss showed The Duke and Duchess the organic produce he's growing in the township with aquaponics - supplying local restaurants. And finally, The Duke and Duchess met the women behind the amazing Blossom Care Solutions - who are making 80,000 sanitary pads every month for women in their community. They are 100% compostable, and provide an essential low-cost product for women and girls. The Duchess has long campaigned on this issue and wrote in Time magazine in 2017, saying: “In communities all over the globe, young girls’ potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world. To that I say: we need to push the conversation, mobilize policy making surrounding menstrual health initiatives, support organizations who foster girls’ education from the ground up, and within our own homes, we need to rise above our puritanical bashfulness when it comes to talking about menstruation.” • See our previous post to see The Dukes speech #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©️ PA images
