Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the new documentary chronicling the Sussexes' recent tour of southern Africa, offers viewers a behind-the-scenes look the official visit, and features candid interviews with the royal couple, not only about their struggles with the media but also about the joys of life with baby Archie.
Some of the most quoted scenes from the program include Harry and Meghan opening up about their relationship with the press, and how difficult the past year has been for them in the public eye. But the more joyful parts of the film feature the new parents speaking about their son, and how much he enjoyed the trip to South Africa.
"I think [South Africa is] really an inspiring place to be, and the first place for us as a family trip like this to bring our baby," Meghan said, while speaking with locals during her visit to the Bo-Kaap neighborhood in Cape Town.
"I tell you what, [Archie] clearly loves Africa as well, because he was up looking out the window, he's found his voice now," Harry added. "He was bouncing up and down, he's making more noise than he's ever made, and he's smiling all the time."
Meghan agreed, even saying that Archie is "the happiest" in South Africa. "We thought he was happy before! He is the happiest here, just so chatty the past two days."
Archie later made his first public appearance on the trip, meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
"It's not lost on us what a huge and significant moment that is," Meghan said. "And I think Archie will look back at that [for] so many years and understand that right at the beginning of his life, he was fortunate enough to have this moment with one of the best and most impactful leaders of our time. It's really special."
Harry & Meghan: An African Journey was produced by ITV, and premiered on October 20 in the U.K. In the U.S., it will air on October 23 at 10 p.m. on ABC, in a special hosted by Robin Roberts.
