The Duke of Sussex is excited to introduce baby Archie to Africa on his first official tour of the continent as a family.

Prince Harry, 34, said the region has been a second home to him ahead of the familys visit to South Africa in a few weeks time.

He will be joined by his wife Meghan, 38, and baby Archie at their first stop before making solo visits to Malawi, Angola and Botswana.

The pair are set to undertake charity work and promote the British Commonwealth office, who requested the 10 day trip.

As he unveiled new organisations he and the duchess would like to support, Prince Harry said: In just a few weeks our family will be taking its first official tour to Africa, a region of the world that over the past two decades has been a second home to me.

On a personal note, I cant wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! Well see all of you very soon..

Botswana holds a special place in the hearts of the duke and duchess.

Prince Harry reportedly whisked his wife away to the southern African country in 2017 to mark her 36th birthday, a year after their love blossomed in the nation soon after meeting on a blind date.

To mark the start of September, the Sussex Royal Instagram account has now started following different charities working towards positive change as part of a monthly social awareness approach.
