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."

A source revealed to US Weekly saying:

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

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.

They were scheduled to go back home on Wednesday, after concluding more activities with their host country's president Cyril Ramaphosa and the widow of late Nelson Mandela, Mrs. Graca Machel.
