Harry flew in a small private plane to Botswana today in a solo leg of the ten-day Africa tour[/caption]

Harry travelled on a small private plane as it is likely the only way for him to land in the remote area he was travelling to.

He and Meghan, 38, previously holidayed in Botswana when they were dating in 2016 and the main stone in the Duchess’ engagement ring is from the country.

This afternoon, Meghan visited Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town to meet female entrepreneurs and investors working in technology.

She made the trip to “highlight the benefits of networking between aspiring female entrepreneurs and successful female role models”.

Harry will travel to Angola on Friday to pay homage to the work of his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who campaigned for landmines to be outlawed during a visit she made to the country in 1997.

The prince will also visit a spot his mother was famously photographed.

He will also pay tribute to a British soldier killed by an elephant during anti-poaching operations in Malawi to focus attention on efforts to protect endangered animals.

FLYING VISIT

As part of tomorrow’s schedule, Meghan will take part in a Women in Public Service breakfast .

However, it was baby Archie who stole the show today when the royals met Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Harry and Meghan beamed as they showed off their adorable four-month-old son, with the duchess saying he was an “old soul”.

Meghan cuddled her little boy while doting dad Harry put his arm around his young family as they were greeted by Archbishop Tutu, a hero of the anti-apartheid movement, and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

Archie, wearing sweet blue dungarees and white socks, stole the show as he grinned at the camera in his first official outing during the family’s Royal Africa tour.

The seventh-in-line to the throne – who appeared to have tell-tale signs of his dad’s red hair – posed with the man they call “The Arch” with proud mum and dad.

Meghan joked with the Archbishop’s daughter Thandeka Tutu Gxashe, that the little royal would have have to get used the the cameras in his life.

Thandeka said: “I have cameras in my genes”, with Meghan replying: “He’s an old soul.”

Dad Harry also then piped up, saying: “I think he is used to it already”.

The Archbishop’s daughter also joked: “You like the ladies. He’s going to be a ladies’ man.”

The duchess looked stunning in a £369 Club Monaco dress and with her hair in a bun as she and Harry met the leading South African figure at their foundation at The Old Granary Building in Cape Town.


Despite fears the 87-year-old archbishop might have had to pull out of the event due to ill-health, he appeared delighted with the chance to meet the royal family and even handed over some books, including The Book of Joy he authored with the Dalai Lama.

As they arrived for the meeting, the Sussexes also shared a video of their family on Instagram along with the cute caption “Arch meets Archie!”

They later posted a sweet photo of the archbishop giving Archie a sweet kiss on his forehead, writing: “Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!”
