- Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and baby Archie have been over in Africa on their first royal tour as a family of three.
- And now the Duchess has made a sweet confession about baby Archie, revealing the secret way in which he influenced the tour.
- In other royal news, Meghan Markle was given an adorable gift for baby Archie while in South Africa.
The Sussex family headed out to Africa together at the start of last week for their first royal tour as a trio.
However, after a couple of days together in South Africa, the three were separated when Prince Harry headed over to Botswana to fulfil separate royal engagements.
And mum-of-one Meghan had a jam-packed week full of royal engagements, as well as taking care of baby Archie without the help of husband Prince Harry.
But she has now revealed the secret way in which the five-month-old influenced the royal tour – and it helped to make things a whole lot easier for the Duchess.
Speaking about Archie, who made his first public appearance last week in Cape Town, Meghan revealed that the tour’s schedule has been arranged around the little royal’s feeding times.
‘Oh my goodness, well, we’re doing well,’ explained the new mum. ‘I think the schedule – they have been very kind to me, because everything is based around Archie’s feed times.
‘So it’s a full plate, but we’re making it work. It’s worth it.’
The Duchess also spoke out about husband Prince Harry, making a sweet confession about her time away from him while he was away in different African countries.
Speaking at an event that aimed to highlight the issue of violence against girls and women, the mum-of-one said that she had enjoyed her ‘really powerful’ first trip to South Africa.
However, she then went on to admit how much she had missed her other half while he had been away fulfilling solo engagements.
‘Being able to be in Africa and South Africa – it’s my first time being in this country – has been really powerful,’ said the Duchess, ‘and Harry has continued on in a couple of other countries – we are reuniting today, which I can’t wait for, I miss him so much!
‘But I think for us it has been a really special trip,’ she continued, ‘because you get to see when you’re focussing on the causes that are really important to us, you can see that the impact is good, and it feels meaningful.’
