Arch meeting Archie – Harry and Meghan introducing baby Archie to the world!

Surprise, surprise, surprise! Having wondered when baby Archie might make an appearance on the tour, up he popped this morning to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the nobel-prize winning champion of the anti-Apartheid movement.

We saw the first glimpse through Meghan and Harry story on Instagram running the caption: “Arch meets Archie,” showing us Meghan carrying a gurgling boy, smiling, and laughing for the cameras. Watch it below

Archie had skipped the previous engagements, being looked after by the Royal nanny, while the Harry and Meghan took out several engagements. I personally found this unveiling of Archie on day three as very fitting.

The tour marked the first royal tour as a family for Meghan and Harry, I’m very sure it was an exciting moment for them introducing Archie to South Africa

Meghan described Archie as ‘an old soul’ while the Archbishop’s daughter, clearly smitten, suggested he would grow up to be a ‘ladies man’.

Archie spent the day smiling and laughinh like a natural. Thandeka Tutu Gxashe, suggested that the boy must have “cameras” in his “genes”. His father, after all, was a much-photographed prince and his mother an American actress.

Archbishop Tutu only had nice things to say about our duke and duchess “Thank you for your concern and interest in the welfare of our people. It’s very heartwarming to realize that you really, genuinely are caring people,” he said. Harry replied: “We all try to make things better.”

A very nice family shot

The Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation is a “centre of knowledge and discourse, a repository for intellectual property and a platform to reconnect people to each other and to their own integrity”, it states on its website. The foundation was established by the Archbishop in 2013, who was previously selected by Nelson Mandela to chair South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

During the visit, Harry was handed two photographs – one for him and one for his brother – showing their mother Diana, Princess of Wales, pictured with Nelson Mandela in Cape Town in 1997.

Today it’s a new piece for Meghan, although she’s turned to one of her favorite brands, Club Monaco. She wore their Dremah dress. I love the pretty brushstroke print on this midi!

And once again, she wore her turquoise Jennifer Meyer earrings.

As for Archie, he just adored the H&M light blue striped dungarees and Bonpoint socks:
