The Palace confirmed the Duke and Duchess will tour South Africa following confirmation from High Commissioner Nigel Casey at a special event in honour of Her Majesty yesterday. Mr Casey said: "That's great news for us. I predict it's also good news for the South African economy because I predict a hat and frock-buying frenzy - which could well restore economic growth all on its own."
One element of consideration will be Archie's age. ITV's royal correspondent Chris Ship understands the tour will take place in mid-September, when he will be only four months old. It will make him the youngest royal baby to accompany his parents on a royal tour abroad. Logistically Chris reports the tour will work this way; the Sussexes arrive in Cape Town together and will begin the tour there. The second leg will see Harry travel to Angola, Malawi and Botswana before rejoining Meghan and Archie in Johanessburg for the final portion. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Meghan carrying out several solo engagements while Harry's away.
More from Good Morning America:
'Africa is also close to both Harry and Meghan's hearts. It's where Harry whisked Meghan away a few weeks after the couple's first date in 2017.
"I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana and we camped out with each other under the stars," Harry said in a post-engagement interview last year. "She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic, so then we were really by ourselves, which I think was crucial to me to make sure we had a chance to get to know each other."
It should be another terrific tour for the couple. We'll likely see the full itinerary released a couple of weeks before they leave the UK. Are you looking forward to the Sussex family tour? Below, a taste of the stunning sights we can expect during the tour - Cape Town's 'City Bowl'.
We're expecting to hear details regarding Archie's christening, due to take place in July, any day now.
