Also in striking difference to Prince George’s debut tour, Meghan and Harry seem intent on hiding baby Archie away – further diva behaviour given the roles they play as public figures.
“The couple hope to include [him] at some point,” an insider tells the UK’s ITV, “but it’s difficult to schedule. He’s five months old.”
Though fans are disappointed, rumours of Meghan’s tantrums when she doesn’t get her way have been doing the rounds since she allegedly had a “meltdown” earlier this year, when friends refused to change their phone numbers on her orders.
For much of the tour Harry will be separate from his wife and son, who will remain in South Africa while he visits Botswana, Angola and Malawi.
Many of Meghan’s engagements will reportedly be kept private so they don’t detract from the duke’s work.
