The royal couple continues melting hearts around the world.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kicked off their first overseas royal tour with Prince Archie yesterday, and unsurprisingly, the royal trio began making headlines from the moment they stepped off the plane in South Africa. Here, the royal family’s cutest moments from the trip so far.
1. He may be just four months old but Prince Archie has been generating buzz since the day he was born. This time, as he and his famous parents deplaned in Cape Town, viewers were quick to note that the pom-pom beanie he was wearing bore a strong resemblance to a hat Princess Diana outfitted Harry in for a plane ride in 1985. Prince Harry has been praised often for the subtle homages to his mother in various aspects of his life, and this sweet nod, too, didn’t go unnoticed.
2. On their first stop on the royal tour, the couple spent their time interacting with children and young people involved with human rights organization The Justice Desk in Nyanga. As the two prepared for a photo op with a group of children, Prince Harry accidentally mussed his wife’s hair while putting his arm around her shoulder. But no fear! He smoothed it right back out and smiled for the camera.
3. The royal couple were also pulled into an uproarious dance circle as they were leaving Nyanga. The Duchess showed off her sense of rhythm by sashaying with one of the young dancers, while Prince Harry grooved to the beat a bit before moving on. “Meghan’s a good dancer,” said Lilitha Mazana, who danced with the royal. “She’s very nice. Her skills were fantastic.”
4. On day two of the tour, the couple melted hearts everywhere with a little PDA. After wrapping up their visit to Monwabisi Beach to meet with the NGO Waves for Change, Prince Harry had to leave for solo engagements and gave Meghan a kiss goodbye. The royals also praised each other’s parenting skills while meeting with surf mentors from the nonprofit group, referring to each other as “the best dad” and “the best mom.”
