According to a report in the Daily Mail, little Archie Harrison might take his first big trip, to Africa, this year
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumoured to be planning a trip to South Africa later this year, with preparation for the journey already underway. Although there has been no official confirmation from the royals, Africa is one of the Sussex royals’ favourite destinations.
Harry and Meghan – who were married last year – announced that their baby son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was born in the early hours of May 6. Although he’s not even a month old yet, he has some grand travel plans ahead!
Happy memories of Africa
Prince Harry and his brother Prince William have always had an affinity for Africa. Their mother, Princess Diana was known for her humanitarian care, and she visited a number of African countries to help promote human rights and Aids awareness around the world. She passed on this love for Africa and the people of Africa to her boys.
When they first met, Harry took Meghan on a romantic getaway to Botswana, and Meghan’s gorgeous engagement ring features a diamond from Botswana. Harry also spent a year helping in conservation efforts in Africa, shortly after he turned 30.
Last year, Prince Harry was appointed ‘President of African Parks’ due to his passion for conservation and humanitarian issues on the continent.
We’re not sure whether the royals would enjoy roughing it in a tent at the Kruger National Park (maybe camping’s not a great idea with a newborn!) but we hope to see them enjoying some South African safaris, and sharing in our most spectacular resources soon.
Travel with Archie
South Africa is not the only destination on little Archie’s travel calendar. According to reports, Meghan is keen to take him to visit her mother in Los Angeles as soon as she feels confident to travel with him on an aeroplane. Even on a private plane, it’s an 11-hour trip! With a baby on board, it could be a very long journey…
