Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry announce details of their Africa tour with baby Archie

Sept. 22 is just over two weeks away, and in next to no time we’ll see Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and Archie Harrison on their royal tour! We’ve all been anxious to hear when the family of three will head to the continent, along with where they’ll be travelling and now Buckingham Palace have satisfied royal watchers’ curiousity by releasing their itinerary!

Meghan, Harry and Archie will set off for South Africa on Sept. 22, and will arrive the next day. They’ll spend three days in Cape Town, South Africa, and Harry will head to Botswana for Sept. 26. From Sept. 27 to 28, he’ll be in Angola, and will spend three days in Malawi from Sept. 28 to 30. He will split Oct. 1 in Malawi and South Africa, where he will rejoin Meghan and Archie in Johannesburg before the tour ends Oct. 2.

The tour will also incorporate tree planting, conservation, and visits to organizations that work in fields such as empowerment for women and girls, HIV/AIDS and international peacekeeping.

As for when we’ll see Archie, we aren’t sure yet. A royal source told HELLO! UK the schedule was designed specifically so the duke and duchess could spend bathtime and bedtime with their son. We do know Archie will not be with them on the first day of the tour when they arrive in Cape Town.

“The couple hope to include Archie at some point in the programme, but it’s difficult to schedule,” the source told HELLO! UK. “He’s five months old. But they hope to.”

This is the couple’s first tour as a family and comes after Harry and Meghan took the little boy with them on holidays to Ibiza and the French Riviera last month, where they stayed with Elton John and David Furnish at their mansion.
