All the Details of Prince Harry, Meghan and Archie's Royal Africa Tour (Um, It's WAY Sooner Than We Thought...)

Calling all royal aficionados: We have brand-new details about Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie's Royal Tour of Africa that kicks off this fall.

In a new post from @SussexRoyal, the duke and duchess shared fresh news about their upcoming trip, and said that they "look forward to seeing you soon!”

The trip will take place in two weeks, on September 23 (aka wayyyy sooner than was originally reported), and the Sussexes will focus on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment while there.

In South Africa, Meghan and Harry will meet with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and join a "Waves for Change" meeting on Monwabisi Beach. The organization provides surf therapy to vulnerable youth in at-risk communities.

The caption reveals that Prince Harry will also honor his late mother Princess Diana's work in Africa, specifically in Angola with the Halo Trust foundation that works to rid the world of leftover land mines. 

Harry will also visit Malawi to check in on the British army’s partnership with African Parks, though it sounds like Meghan and Archie will stay behind in South Africa for both the Angola and Malawi legs of the trip. While Harry's away, Meghan will continue her work in South Africa, focusing on women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership.

Harry will also introduce a new initiative that he is "particularly proud about": a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership that he designed with the help of the governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola. The partnership will work to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta.

We'll next see Meghan and Harry very soon. The duchess will make an appearance at the launch event of her new Smart Works clothing collection on September 12, while the duke will attend an Invictus Games reception on September 10.

Phew, and we thought our two dinner reservations for vacay was a lot of planning ahead…

Thank goodness we only have two weeks to wait to see baby Archie's airport attire, though.
