Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirm HUGE news about baby Archie

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made a big announcement about baby Archie, and royal fans can't contain their excitement!

The pair took to Instagram to confirm for the first time they will be doing a tour of South Africa later this year, which had already been announced by Commissioner Nigel Casey.

However, the duo also finally revealed what many royal fans had been wondering about – whether baby Archie would be joining mum and dad or not.

Turns out the little one is indeed set to join his parents on what will be the Sussexes first trip as a family – how exciting!

Alongside an old picture of the couple, they wrote: ‘TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited to announce that they have been asked to carry out a tour to Southern Africa this autumn.

‘The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have requested a visit to South Africa 🇿🇦 as well as The Duke carrying out visits to Malawi 🇲🇼 and Angola 🇦🇴. His Royal Highness will also do a short working visit to Botswana 🇧🇼 on route to the other countries.

‘The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the commonwealth and beyond.

Royal fans were quick to share their enthusiasm to see the family out and about together in just a few months.

One said: ‘Ah Archie will do his first tour! So excited to see all the great causes you highlight on these visits.’

Another wrote: ‘AAwwww…”first official tour as a family” 😍😍😍’

A third added: ‘Can’t wait 😍❤️😍’.

Archie – who will be less than six-months-old at the time – will be following in his cousin George’s footsteps, who also joined his mum and dad on an official royal tour to New Zealand when he was only eight-months-old.

We can’t wait for all the adorable pictures!
