Little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor isn't quite a month old yet and already his parents are reportedly planning his first international trip.

But the trip isn't just any old trip aboard, the reported trip planned is said to be momentous and something very close to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge's heart.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are planning to visit South Africa in a few months, and they're bringing Archie along.

Meghan and Harry famously had their first date in South Africa, and it has been called the place that the pair fell in love.

Officials in South Africa have been informed of the plans, and preparations are underway.

A source told the Daily Mail:

"People have been informed that the Duke and Duchess will be coming. Early preparations have begun."

It has also been reported that a number of other countries will be added to the royal family's itinerary.

Africa also holds a very special place in Prince Harry's heart for other reasons than just where he fell in love with his wife.

Prince Harry said to Town & Country last year that it is the place "where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world".

It is also where he went with his brother and father following the death of his mum, Princess Diana.

"My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags - we were going to Africa to get away from it all," he said to Town & Country.
