Update to Meghan and Harry's South African Tour

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex just released additional information through their Instagram account about their South African tour, due to start in 2 weeks time.

Meghan and Harry will focus their visit on programs involving 'community, grassroots leadership, women's and girl's rights, mental health and HIV/AIDS and the environment'.

A few specific visits are mentioned as part of their itinerary: a visit with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and a visit to the Western Cape, Cape Town with 'Waves for Change'.

As earlier disclosed, Harry will also travel separately to Angola, Botswana and Malawi for engagements with the Halo Trust, and to check in on a partnership between the British Army and African Parks.

Harry and Meghan express their gratitude for having an opportunity to connect with those 'on the ground in South Africa' and say they are inspired by the work being done and wish to learn from these groups as to how they feel they can be better supported.

It sounds like it will be a very busy trip, with many photo opportunities, and hopefully at least one visit involving the "Adorable Baby Archie?"
