Even though we can expect to see Archie in South Africa, rumour has it that Prince Harry intends to perform his royal duties in Malawi and Angola without the Duchess of Sussex and his firstborn.
Here is everything we know about the Sussex’s trip to South Africa so far:
The tour begins on September 23
An official statement by Buckingham Palace already stated that the Sussex’s will commence their tour of South Africa, Botswana, Malawi and Angola on September 23, and will finish October 2.
Where will the tour begin?
We know that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will begin their royal tour in South Africa, and Prince Harry will finish solo in Malawi and Angola. The Royal will also briefly attend Botswana on a “short working visit”.
