Baby Archie makes first public appearance as Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan introduce him in South Africa

Baby Archie has made his first public appearance! The four-month-old royal stepped out in South Africa with parents Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

Master Archie has made his first ever public appearance while on royal tour with parents the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who have kept their little one pretty under wraps since he was born back in May (opens in new tab), have finally introduced the five-month-old to the world while out in South Africa.

Meghan and Harry took Archie to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu early in the morning in South Africa, as well as the Archbishop's daughter Thandeka.

During the meeting, Thandeka joked that Archie was going to be a ladies man when he was older, before the Archbishop kissed the baby on the forehead as the royal couple headed out of the building.

Doesn't baby Archie look just like his Dad at that age?

In fact, many royal fans have commented on the similarities between little Archie and Prince Harry when he was around the same age - and we reckon the pair look like twins!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took to their Instagram account to share a sweet video of them walking to a public engagement with baby Archie in tow, while on their first royal tour as a family.

Archie can be seen being carried by his mother and even treats cameras to an adorable smile!

This is the first time that the Duke and Duchess have introduced Archie to the world while carrying out their regular engagements.

And the close-up video is what royal fans have been waiting for, as viewers are really able to see what the little one looks like and can even see his adorably cheeky personality shining through while he holds his mother's hand, laughs up at his father and gives the camera a cute and beaming smile.

Members of the public have only met the newest royal twice previously.

The first time was when the Sussexes carried out a photocall in Windsor (opens in new tab) just days after the little one's birth and the second was when Archie was christened (opens in new tab) back in July at two-months-old.

But now that the tot has grown to nearly five-months-old, royal supporters have finally got a glimpse into how he has grown over the last few months.

Hopefully we'll see him out and about again in South Africa soon!
