The 4-month-old joined Prince Harry and the former Meghan Markle during their visit to Archbishop Desmond Tutu in South Africa, as first revealed in a video on the royal family's Instagram account.

"Arch meets Archie!" the caption reads as the duchess carries her son, who's dressed in blue overalls, which are only $20 from H&M, a white onesie and white socks. You can even hear a little squeal before he smiles at the camera.

More photos of Archie meeting the archbishop and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe were shared on the royal family's Instagram account.

A black-and-white picture shows Tutu giving the boy a kiss on his forehead with a sweet message from the duke and duchess.

"Thank you Archbishop Tutu for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!" the caption reads.

Fans have been anxious to get a glimpse of Archie as this is the baby's first official tour with his parents and only one of the few times he's been seen by the public since his birth in May. Earlier in the tour, a woman eagerly asked the duke and duchess where their son was.

"He's sleeping!" was their response.

We're glad to see he's shaken off that jet lag enough for such an important day!

Archie seemed to be plenty alert during the visit, happily sitting on his mom's lap as they met with Tutu and his daughter at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.
