The world finally got another look at baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and we were definitely not disappointed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have been touring various countries in Africa this week, and on Wednesday were honored to meet anti-apartheid activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe, in South Africa.

Of course, there was an extra special guest along with the Duke and Duchess: their four-month old son, Archie.

On their official Instagram account the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted a story, as well as videos and pictures. Overall, Archie looks very happy to be hanging out with his parents and the Archbishop and his daughter.

On the Instagram story, the video is captioned as “Arch meets Archie,” and it shows the baby happily bouncing in his mom’s lap as his parents sit down for a conversation with the Archbishop.

“Thanks, Cape Town for another impactful and memorable day,” it says in a caption under a video clip of the visit. In another photo, a caption from the Duke and Duchess addressed to the Archbishop said that Archie “loved meeting [him].”

From the looks of it, the Archbishop and his daughter were also happy to meet the new member of the royal family. He gave baby Archie a few small gifts, including photos of his grandmother, Princess Diana, and a few children’s books.

This is one of the few times the world has been able to see baby Archie, other than short glimpses or photos from his christening or Father’s Day. It’s particularly exciting because we can finally see how he has his mother’s eyes and possibly his dad’s red hair, according to People.

One of the cutest moments in the videos, though, was learning Markle’s nickname for Archie, which is Bubba, according to People. In the video and Instagram story, you can hear her calling him by this pet name.

Prince Harry is now visiting Botswana before continuing to Angola and Malawi on his own while Markle stays in South Africa with Archie.
