Royal baby Archie Harrison has been incognito since the beginning of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s trip to South Africa, but he made an appearance on Wednesday to meet anti-apartheid hero Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
On Sept. 25, Day 3 of the royal couple’s African tour, the duke and duchess had their firstborn in tow for tea time with Tutu and his daughter, Theresa Thandeka Tutu, in Cape Town.
The family stopped by for finger foods at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, which aims to help in the development of youth and leadership and facilitates discussions on social justice.
In video footage first shared on the couple’s Instagram account @sussexroyal, Prince Harry can be heard telling Archie: “You get to meet Arch!”
The 34-year-old has a long relationship with the Tutus.
The duchess can be heard describing her son as “an old soul” in more footage shared by the Sussexes.
At one point, Thandeka joked: “You like the ladies. He’s going to be a ladies’ man.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also shared a photo of Tutu holding Archie’s hand.
