Archie joined Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their visit to South Africa. The family spilled some secrets and shared a great time during their first stop at Cape Town.

Baby Archie marked his first official tour on 25 September 2019. The baby boy joined his parents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their 10-day trip to Southern Africa. This trip revealed a lot about the adorable boy and also featured some heartwarming moments.

The Royal family stopped at Cape town to visit South African human rights activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe. The video of the visit showed Meghan addressing the baby boy with a nickname. “Say hello! Hello, hi,” said Meghan to her almost 5-month-old. The little boy who cheerfully responded to his mum started drooling. The Royal is heard calling her son "Bubba." 


According to People, in another video that was posted on couple's official Instagram page, Meghan is also seen calling Archie by his official name. It shows the couple walking through a corridor with little Archie on his mother's arms with Prince Harry by their side to meet the Archbishop. The baby boy is seen babbling in a sky blue outfit. Archie aka Bubba then went on to become the center of attention in the meeting.


With an amused Archie, the couple settled down on a sofa opposite the Archbishop and his daughter. The group shared lots of laughter and heartwarming moments. When Thandeka prompted Meghan to speak, Archie let out a chuckle, comfortably on his mother's lap. She then turned her attention to the cute one. “Is that funny?” asked Thandeka to a smiling Archie. Harry who beamed with joy watching his child commented, "I think he knows exactly what’s going on."


Thandeka looked at Archie and asked," “You like me best, yes! Oh, you like the ladies better, yeah.” It was followed by an immediate response from mother, Meghan. She revealed, "He likes to flirt.” The playful baby sat through the meeting making his presence known with timely chuckles and his efforts to stand on his mother's lap. Archie also shared a fun moment with the Archbishop. The two were seen sharing a high five and trying to make some dance moves.


Following the meeting, the Archbishop presented gifts to the Royals, which included a photo of Archie's late grandmother, Princess Diana, a children's songbook and some children's books penned by the Archbishop. The Royals then posted heartwarming videos and photographs of the visit and thanked the Archbishop for his hospitality. “Thank you, Archbishop Tutu, for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!” wrote the Duke and Duchess on Instagram with a black and white photo of Archie along with Meghan and the Archbishop.
