Prince Harry and Meghan have taken baby Archie Harrison to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu on the third day of their African tour.

The Duchess of Sussex carried the couples four-month-old son in her arms as they attended the charity foundation in Cape Town, South Africa.

Archie is the youngest royal ever to go on an official royal trip, with today marking his first official appearance alongside his parents.

Meghan introduced him to the Archbishop and his wife Leah, before he later caused the couple to fall into fits of laughter by pulling faces in her lap.

The duchess joked that her son was an old soul while Harry commented about his relaxation in front of the cameras: I think he is used to it already.
