Phew! Time to catch our breath after a whirlwind 10 days! Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are back in the UK after returning home from their tour of South Africa, Botswana, Angola and Malawi – and we’ll soon get a behind-the-scenes look at their trip!
On Oct. 3, Tom Bradby of ITV News revealed he had filmed a documentary on the tour.
“I think it will explain a lot when it airs,” he said.
Just finished filming a documentary on Harry and Meghan in Africa. I think it will explain a lot when it airs.

There’s little other information about the film right now, including when viewers can expect to see it, but we do know Archie Harrison will likely be included in it. It would be silly if the film did not feature the four-month-old boy, who made his royal tour debut when his mom and dad brought him to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe on Sept. 25.
Tom has strong experience making movies about the royals. He travelled to Africa with Harry in 2016 to film a documentary about that trip, when he visited South Africa. He also spoke with Prince William and Duchess Kate after they announced their engagement in November 2010.
Harry and Meghan wrapped up their tour on Oct. 2 after meeting South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife, Tshepo Motsepe. They flew home later the same day. The trip saw them highlight the rights of women and girls quite extensively, with Meghan making a trip to the site of South African student Uyinene Mrwetyana ’s murder, a crime that has outraged the nation. She also made several speeches against gender-based violence and for the education of women and girls, linking both issues to mental health.
As for when we’ll next see the couple, they have yet to announce an upcoming joint engagement, but we’re sure they’ll do so soon. Until then, we hope the family of three gets some much-needed rest!
