“He’s an old soul”

Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduce their son Archie Harrison to Archbishop Desmond Tutu

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have introduced their baby son Archie to renowned anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

It is the first time the four-month-old has been seen in public on the couple’s 10-day tour of Africa.

Archie was seen smiling in his mother’s arms and was held up on her lap.

Prince Harry and Meghan joked about their son’s time in front of the cameras as they greeted the archbishop and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

“He’s an old soul,” said Meghan, while Harry remarked: “I think he is used to it already.”

A Nobel Peace Prize winner for his opposition to apartheid, the archbishop said he was “thrilled” by the “rare privilege and honour” of meeting the royals.
