Meghan Markle urges fans ‘overwhelm’ world with ‘little bits of good’ ahead of Africa trip | Royal | News

Meghan and Prince Harry published a quote from Archibishop Desmond Tutu on their Instagram account, sussexroyal. The “inspiring quote”, as described by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, read: “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” 

Meghan and Harry, who framed the quote in a royal blue background and completed it with their monogram, added as a caption: “An inspiring quote for the day – wishing you a wonderful week ahead! 

“The Archbishop is an anti-apartheid and human rights activist, who was honoured with the Nobel Peace Prize for his continued efforts to champion equality for all.” 

Meghan and Harry’s latest post on Instagram comes just a few months before the couple is schedule to head to South Africa for an official visit. 

This trip, due to take place in autumn, will mark the second official visit abroad carried out by the couple, following the successful royal tour of Oceania they completed in November last year.  

But this trip will also be the first-ever official trip Meghan and Harry take their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, to. 

The full statement on the visit, posted on Meghan and Harry’s Instagram page, read: “TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited to announce that they have been asked to carry out a tour to Southern Africa this autumn.

“The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have requested a visit to South Africa as well as The Duke carrying out visits to Malawi and Angola.

“His Royal Highness will also do a short working visit to Botswana en route to the other countries.

“The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the Commonwealth and beyond.

“This will be their first official tour as a family!”


The African continent has a very special place in Harry’s heart. 

His mother, late Princess Diana, travelled several times to the continent to raise awareness on the necessity of banning landmines, and was depicted in a now iconic picture walking through a landmine area in Angola. 

Harry himself travelled to Africa, to the small kingdom of Lesotho, during his gap year. 

The journey had such an impact on the young royal he later founded a charity called Sentebale to raise awareness and funds on the “forgotten children” of Lesotho.  

Harry also took Meghan to Botswana on their second official date, where they met the founder of charity Elephants Without Borders and learned about the conservations of these majestic animals.
