Archie Mountbatten-Windsor made his first tour appearance in South Africa today when he joined his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.
This is only the second time we’ve seen Archie “live,” following his introduction to the world in St George’s Hall in May. He’s grown considerably since we last saw glimpse of him via his christening photos and we now know that, yes, he’s inherited his father’s red hair and a pretty solid mix of his parents’ features.
The couple spoke with the Tutus about South Africa, the issues that the Sussexes are working to highlight, and the myriad Tutu family charitable foundations. The meeting, however, lasted only roughly 30 minutes and the star of the show, it’s safe to say, was young Master Archie.
He’s also the star of the internet, apparently, since “Baby Archie” is currently trending on Twitter 😉
Here’s a video clip of the introduction from CBS:
As for fashion, Meghan debuted a new Club Monaco dress that she paired with navy Manolo Blahnik heels and Jennifer Meyer jewelry. I like this look fine – it’s not a “wow” for me, but it served its purpose, and I want to save a longer conversation about the Duchesses’s wardrobe this tour for the next post.
This engagement was very much a photo-op, so I’m going to embed a few more images from the meeting below. Enjoy!
