So cool! Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan‘s royal trip to Africa somehow just got even better when they visited Cape Town’s Nyanga Township. While there, the couple met a local group called Justice Desk, a nonprofit teaching kids their rights, who, having heard the Sussexes were going to pay them a visit, prepared a special surprise for Harry and Meghan.
“When your beautiful boy was born you gave him the name Archie,” the organization’s executive director, Jessica Dewhurst, told the parents, according to BAZAAR.com. “The name Archie means ‘bravery and strength.’ 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.”
However, the blessing didn’t stop there. The group also presented Harry and Meghan with an adorable kid-sized sweatshirt for Archie because he’s a “Justice Desk hero.” On the back of the black and white sweater it read, “Be a Voice for Justice,” and Harry and Meghan seemed very pleased with the gift.
Sadly, the duke and duchess weren’t able to bring Archie with them around Cape Town after they arrived early Monday morning on September, 23. “The couple hopes to be able to include Archie at some point in the program, but it is difficult to schedule because he is 5 months old,” a royal source recently told People.
While they left Archie with a nanny for the beginning of the trip, it didn’t keep Harry and Meghan from having a successful day in a place that means so much to the two of them.
“I am here with you, and I am here for you,” Meghan said in a passionate speech to a crowd at Cape Town’s Nyanga Township with Harry. “On one personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of the royal family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister.”
We’re sure the second day of Harry and Meghan’s royal trip will be even more exciting!
