The youngest royal

The Sussex family is admittedly unique among British royals — Archie Harrison is about to set a royal first! 

It's pretty simple to guess what it's about — nearly two-month-old Archie is coming to South Africa this fall, making him the youngest royal ever to go overseas. Even Prince George was only 9 months old when he first was on the trip with Kate and William.

The date is still unknown, but presumably, the trip is to in October when Meghan returns to her royal duties and her and Harry's first-time son is five months old.

What about malaria?

It's no question South Africa is known for high risk of malaria. So, will baby Archie attend all countries? Reportedly, both Meghan Markle and Archie will miss half of their tour due to this reason.

Buckingham Palace confirmed this statement, pointing out that Prince Harry is to make solo visits to Angola, Malawi, and Botswana — the places close to his heart.
