London, UK – Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will head to southern Africa later this year for their first official overseas tour as a family since the birth of son Archie.
The couple will visit South Africa, Angola and Malawi and also undertaken a working visit to Botswana at the request of the Foreign Office, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.
“The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the commonwealth and beyond”, said a statement on the couple’s Instagram account.
“This will be their first official tour as a family!”
no further details were released by the palace.
Meghan, 37, a former U.S. actress, gave birth to Archie, their first child in May. She has only made one official engagement since then, attending an annual military parade in Honor of Queen Elizabeth earlier this month.
Harry, 34, the queen’s grandson and seventh-in-line to the throne, is a frequent visitor to southern Africa for his conservation work and holidays.
