BABY Archie stole the show when he made a surprise appearance in South Africa when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry met Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

And the royal couple say their five-month-old son was “happiest” on the 10-day royal tour and became chattier than ever.

Prince Harry said that Archie had been smiling out of the window and chatting a lot during their visit.

Meghan added: “He’s the happiest here. So chatty over the last few days."

The comments were made on the eye-opening ITV documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, which aired last night.

The explosive programme included Harry admitting he’s grown apart from William, and Meghan blasting the British “stiff upper lip” saying she doesn’t want to just survive.



Royal fans gushed over Archie’s starring role in the documentary, including the previously-unseen sweet moment Prince Harry wiped away some of his dribble.

The new dad spoke about how his tot is developing an adorable personality, and said: “I think he knows exactly what's going on.”

Meghan said after the meeting with Archbishop Tutu: “It's a lot with a five-month-old. Life is [tiring] but I think any parent can relate to that. He’s been doing really well. He’s been sleeping really well.

"It's not lost on us what a huge and significant moment this is. I think Archie will look back on that in so many years and realise at the beginning of his life he was fortunate enough to have that moment with one of the most inspirational leaders of our time."

After speaking with host Tom Bradby, Meghan then goes over to Harry, who is cradling Archie in his arms, and kisses the top of the baby’s head.


And in another cute scene where Meghan was chatting to Tom, eagle eyed fans were distracted by a reflection of Harry and his son in the background of Meghan’s interview.

The new dad can be seen cradling his son and rocking him from side to side in candid footage, where he thinks no one can see him.

Fans have picked up on the sweet father-son moment, saying it was the “favourite” part of the hour-long documentary.

Posting on Twitter, one person said: “My favourite part of Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. Reflection of Harry cuddling Archie.”

Someone else posted: “Meghan is saying something important but I can't keep my eyes off the duo in the left side corner….. Harry and Archie.”



Other revelations made in the documentary include Meghan’s sweet nickname for Harry; “H”.

It’s not the first time Meghan has let a nickname slip, after she accidentally called Prince Harry ‘my love’ at the theatre.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also shared their desire to move to Cape Town and said they wish to focus their life’s work predominantly on Africa, and could even build a lodge there.

In a clip from the documentary Prince Harry revealed Meghan living under the same pressures as his mum was his biggest fear.

And another clip showed her holding back tears as she revealed her ‘struggle’ as a ‘vulnerable’ pregnant woman and new mum.

In more royal news Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have apologised for their awkward typo calling it a ‘hiccup’ in new Instagram post.
