The Duke and Duchess of Sussex dazzled South Africa on their 10-day royal tour last month.

But it was the debut of their son, Archie, that caught the most attention.

And now, after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have returned home to the UK with their adorable five-month-old son, new footage of the royal tot at their meeting with South African anti-apartheid activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Cape Town has been released!

In the trailer for a new ITV documentary about their African tour, Meghan can be seen giving the seventh-in-line to the throne, who is starting to grow tufts of reddish hair, a sweet kiss on the forehead as he's cradled by his dad.

The endearing moment takes place just before Harry introduced Meghan and Archie to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

The ITV documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, will currently only air on UK screens and presenter Tom Brady said it will reveal the "happiness" alongside the "pressure and pain" of being a royal.

Mr Bradby said: "The story of their time in Africa was of passion for their work, pride and happiness, but also a world a pressure and pain behind the brave faces."

The documentary comes after it was claimed Meghan and Harry are desperate for Archie to have a normal upbringing away from the spotlight.

When the young royal was born, the new parents rejected him from having a title like cousins Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis.

Instead, he will simply be known as "Master Archie".
