  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are today beginning their first official tour as a family, alongside their five-month old baby Archie.

    Following Archie’s birth back in May, the Palace claim that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were ‘inundated’ with gifts from organisations and the public.

    And as a result, the couple have planned to share all of the touching gifts with those in need, explaining that their young son can only make use of so much!

    A source from the palace told Hello! magazine: ‘They were incredibly grateful but one little baby can only wear so many clothes and he’s growing fast! So the Duchess decided to being a number of his presents to re-gift them to South African children and families most in need.’

    ‘She’ll take a selection of clothes, books and pens to the mothers2mothers charity which help families with HIV.’ They confirmed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and baby Archie begin their 10-day royal tour of South Africa today, and the mothers2mothers charity confirmed that Meghan would indeed be visiting.

    Via their Twitter account, they said in an excited update: ‘We are thrilled to confirm that HRH #DuchessofSussex will be visiting mothers2mothers on Wednesday in Cape Town, #SouthAfrica as part of the #SussexRoyalTour!’

    ‘She will gain insight into how our Mentor Mother Model—which was born in Cape Town in 2001 and sees women living with HIV trained and employed as community health workers—has to date created over 10,000 jobs for women living with HIV and reached more than 11M women and children under two years old.’

    This is such a sweet gesture and we’re looking forward to learning more about Meghan’s visit to the charity!
