The royals and new parents to son Archie will visit South Africa this fall.
British High Commissioner Nigel Casey confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be visiting South Africa later this year.
Speaking at an event in Pretoria to mark the Queen’s 93rd birthday he said the royals would come “in the autumn” – ie. the spring in South Africa.
This is the first official confirmation of the royal visit which is part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Southern African tour.
It is not clear at this stage if they will be received in Pretoria or Cape Town but they are expected to promote Sentebale, the charity Prince Harry started with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, and demining in Angola, a project close to Princess Diana’s heart.
