On October 2, 2019, the Sussexes’ royal Africa tour came to a close. But just because the Meghan and Harry Africa Tour 2019 is over, that doesn’t mean we’re over it!
ITV just released never-before-seen footage from their upcoming documentary, Harry and Meghan : An African Journey. And it’s absolutely adorable.
In the footage, Harry closely cradles the five-month-old baby Archie, swaddled in a small, white blanket. Meghan then plants a quick yet gentle kiss atop the royal baby’s head. “Let’s go,” Harry whispers with a small smile. “Okay,” Meghan hurriedly responds, sneaking in just a few moments to caress her newborn before taking off. This short, yet heartwarming exchange has us melting!
According to People, this was captured just moments before Harry introduced his wife and son to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe. This marked baby Archie’s “first official royal engagement,” wrote People.
Tutu and his daughter met Meghan and Archie at Tutu’s foundation in Cape Town, South Africa. His foundation is dedicated to developing youth leadership, along with creating a dialogue centering around social justice and common human purposes.
During the meeting, Meghan talked fondly about Archie being an “old soul.” Adding onto her thought, Harry revealed the bubbly, excitable baby Archie’s constant desire to stand.
After their meeting, Meghan and Harry posted a charming picture of Tutu kissing Archie on the head on their official Instagram account. The caption read: “‘Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!’ – The Duke and Duchess.”
According to the trailer for Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, the documentary will also explore the royal couple’s struggle to put on a brave face in the midst of intense media scrutiny. In spite of Meghan and Harry’s efforts to bring about gender equality in the African education system, expand support for mental health, and preserve African wildlife, British media refuses to cease the vicious, outlandish criticism.
Regardless of who stands by Meghan and Harry, we can’t wait to see what other adorable moments ITV’s Harry and Meghan: An African Journey will feature!
The documentary is scheduled to air on October 20 on ITV.
