The Duchess of Sussex is one proud mother (as she should be), and she’s spoken a lot about her bundle of joy during her first two days in South Africa with husband, the Duke of Sussex.
While enjoying afternoon tea with residents of the Bo Kaap area of Cape Town, Meghan spoke of her and Harry’s almost five-month-old son, Archie Harrison. Archie keeps his parents’ attention with the Duchess remarking, Our plate is full with a 5-month-old at the moment — so busy.”
The Duke and Duchess have also praised each other’s parenting abilities with Meghan telling a group this morning at a meeting with wellness group Waves for Change that Harry “was the best dad.” Harry then said, “No, she’s the best mom.”
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on 6 May 2019 in London. He has accompanied his parents on their tour to Africa which began in Cape Town yesterday.
While his parents attended engagements yesterday, Archie wasn’t left out. The NGO Justice Desk had gifts for Archie. One of the gifts was a traditional African name which Jessica Dewhurst said, “So to welcome Archie home, your family at the Justice Desk has given him the traditional South African name Ntsika. This name of Xhosa African origin means ‘pillar of strength.’ May you always be a pillar of strength for those who need you.”
He also received a small Justice Desk hoodie.
