In a #MotivationalMonday post on their @SussexRoyal Instagram account yesterday, 19 August 2019, Meghan and Prince Harry published a quote from Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The quote read: “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
The Arch, as Tutu is popularly known, is famed the world over for his stand against apartheid and in furthering the cause of human rights globally. The post comes only a few months before the new Royal parents are scheduled to travel to South Africa as part of an official visit to the region.
The trip will also be the first official visit for baby Archie, the Duke and Duchess’ three-month-old son.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.
