Well this is sweet

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been enjoying spending time with their precious newborn, baby Archie, and it seems that they already have plans to whisk him off on a little holiday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly planning a trip to South Africa with their little one. Following rumours that the family of three are moving there permanently, the Sussexes are said to be heading on the international trip in a few months. It's an important place for Harry and Meghan as it's where they famously had their first date - consequently labelled the place where they fell in love.

Officials have been made aware of their plans, and a source told the Daily Mail: 'People have been informed that the Duke and Duchess will be coming.

'Early preparations have begun.'

According to reports, they'll also visit several other countries during their trip.

Harry has often spoken about his love of Africa, just last year telling Town & Country that it is the place 'where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world,' and revealing that when his mother, Princess Diana, died, it's where Prince Charles took him and his brother, Prince William, to 'get away from it all'.

'My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags - we were going to Africa to get away from it all,' he continued.

Prince William has also discussed his love of the continent, proposing to Kate Middleton during a trip to Kenya in 2010 and telling CNN: 'I regularly daydream. Africa is definitely one of the places I go to. It does completely settle me down. [Kate] understands what it means to me being in Africa, and my love of conservation.

'I didn’t really plan it that far in advance. I just knew I wanted it to feel comfortable where I did it.'
