Archie makes his first official royal tour appearance with his proud parents in adorable new video

And he is the spitting image of his dad!

By Alex Lilly
We're just three days in to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal tour of Africa but there's one little face we've been dying to see.
And our wishes were granted on Wednesday when the Sussex Royal Instagram account uploaded a two-part video of not only Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, but little baby Archie as well.
In the video posted to the Sussex Royal Instagram stories, the four-month old son of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan is being carried in his mum's arms and is the picture of cuteness in his little blue H&M overalls.
The proud parents can be seen playfully chatting with their boy as they walk to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu at his legacy foundation in Cape Town.
While Prince Harry looked smart in a black suit and tie, Duchess Meghan wore a floaty black and white printed dress with her trademark long locks tied back in a bun.
"Arch meets Archie!" the caption of the video joked. Watch the video in the player above!

Mere minutes after posting the video, Sussex Royal shared an exceptionally sweet photograph of the little royal being introduced to the Archbishop.
In the candid shot, the 87-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner looks tenderly at Archie, who is being carried by Duchess Meghan while the Duke and Duchess look on warmly.
"Arch meets Archie! This morning The Duke and Duchess were honoured to introduce their son Archie, to Archbishop, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka," the photo's caption reads.

"The Archbishop, a globally respected figure in anti-apartheid movement, is one of the world's great champions of equality, and has spent his life tirelessly battling injustice."
"Their Royal Highnesses have joined The Archbishop and Thandeka to learn more about the work of The Tutu and Leah Legacy Foundation, and see first-hand how they are focussing on global awareness of the critical issues affecting the world."
The Sussexes added another photo, in black and white, to their Instagram of the Archbishop kissing Archie's forehead, captioning it: "Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!"

During their meeting, Archie giggled playfully and seemed at ease with the cameras as Meghan remarked: "He's an old soul."
Meanwhile Harry added: "I think he's used to it already," in reference to the media.
Between the sweet kisses, hugs and Archie's striking resemblance to Prince Harry, we think we may explode with happiness!

Our first proper look at Archie was at his christening in July when he posed for some official photographs with his nearest and dearest.
And while his parents have chosen to keep him mostly away from the public glare, we do know some sweet bits of information about the seventh in line to the throne, including one feature that his dad is famous for.
"He's a happy baby," a source told PEOPLE magazine back in August. "He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He's really adorable."

Royal watchers caught a brief glimpse of little Archie as he flew into Cape Town with his royal parents on the first day of the royal tour.
Donned in an adorable bobble hat, the little royal looked just like his father when he was a similar age.

When 81-year-old Somaya Ebrahim asked where Archie was on their first day, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan revealed that their little one was sleeping.
"He's not grouchy, just exhausted," Prince Harry added, before remarking that Archie was captivated by Cape Town's iconic Table Mountain.
"He was staring out the window as we flew in.. looking at Table Mountain," Harry said, according to a report from HELLO.
