Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are known for their slightly less traditional approach to their royal duties compared to other family members.
So it's no surprise the couple are taking a progressive approach their first royal tour with son Archie as they head to Africa.
Before jetting off to the continent, Harry and Meghan have embraced social media in a way no royal has done before - by testing their fans.
Posting to Stories to their official Instagram account, Sussex Royal over the weekend, the couple decided to quiz their followers about the history of the Royal Family.
"As we countdown to the official Southern African tour, we wanted to test you on some Royal Family history," the first message read.
The quiz then went on to ask about how old Harry was when he first visited Africa to which year Meghan became Vice President of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust.
The tour will be a milestone for baby Archie as it will be his first official tour with his parents, who just returned to the UK from Italy to pick up their son after attending the wedding of Misha Nonoo.
"In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women's and girls' rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment," a statement on the Sussex Royal account read.
"This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa."
The tour will also include a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a South African Anglican cleric and theologian who is famed for his anti-apartheid work.
