Duchess Meghan Markle spoke to reporters about being on royal tour in Southern Africa with her four-month old son Archie recently.
The Duchess of Sussex revealed that the schedule of events is “based around Archie’s feed times.”
“So it’s a full plate, but we’re making it work,” she added.
The only son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor hasn’t made many appearances during his parents’ tour of southern Africa this week but he still has a big influence on the trip.
Duchess Meghan revealed to reporters that her infant son’s feeding times affects the tour’s agenda.
“We’re doing well,” the duchess said with a laugh while speaking to press today about touring as a family.
“I think the schedule—they have been very kind to me, because everything is based around Archie’s feed times,” she added. “So it’s a full plate, but we’re making it work. It’s worth it. So, thank you!”
At the start of their tour, Archie was first seen landing with his parents in South Africa’s capital but he made his official debut on the trip while accompanying his parents to a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Meghan shared a similar tidbit about her son last week, telling locals in Bo-Kapp, Cape Town, “Our plate is full with a five-month-old at the moment. It’s so busy!”
Meghan stayed behind in South Africa with Archie while her husband, Prince Harry, went on to carry solo engagements in Malawi and Angola over the past few days.
The duchess has still kept busy with events of her own, such as attending a roundtable discussion at the University of Johannesburg and visiting a creative community in the South African city. Oct 2 marks the last day of the tour. -/TISG
