Cape Town – The countdown has officially begun for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie's tour to South Africa.

The British High Commissioner, Nigel Casey, confirmed there would be a royal tour in June before the Sussex Royal Instagram page shared the news as well.

Nigel joked while addressing the media, "I predict a hat and frock buying frenzy to rival SONA, which could restore economic growth all on its own."

On Sunday, the account posted their monthly social awareness – this time, with a focus on the African continent as a lead up to the tour – as well as a special message from Prince Harry, expressing his excitement for his family's latest adventure.

"In just a few weeks our family will be taking its first official tour to Africa, a region of the world that over the past two decades has been a second home to me. Our team has helped create a meaningful programme that we're so excited to share with you.

"On a personal note, I can't wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa! We'll see all of you very soon."
