The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will take their four-month-old son Archie Harrison on his first official overseas trip and while he is not presently included in the roster of public engagements, royal fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of the adorable tot at some point.
Throughout the tour, Their Royal Highnesses will focus their energies on a number of different issues, including women’s and girls’ rights, mental health and the environment.
A statement on the official Sussex Royal Instagram account, in view of their 9.4 million followers, reads: “Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported.”
As well as royal fans, fashionistas around the world will be eager to see the Duchess of Sussex navigate her diverse itinerary of events.
Meghan is likely to attend both local events in the community and more formal evening receptions as she did during her tour of Australia and New Zealand while in the early stages of pregnancy last year.
Her fashion choices will no doubt come under the spotlight as they did then, especially as the tour follows the recent launch of her own clothing line in aid of the charity Smart Works.
