However little Archie had yet to make a public appearance, which materialised when he was taken for tea with one of South Africa’s iconic anti-apartheid figures, Archbishop Tutu and his wife Leah.

The adults shared an assortment of pastries decorated with the words “peace”, “freedom” and “enough is enough” in reference to protests against gender violence that took place this month.

Archie had a special heart-shaped biscuits with his name written on it and Tutu told the young family they were “adored” by South Africans.

The prince will separate from his family later in Wednesday to travel to Botswana, Angola and Malawi.
