Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are never far from the headlines - and this is even truer as their family grows.

For instance, this Father's Day, the two broke the internet by posting an exclusive snap of their new son, Archie, on their official Instagram account, and it also seems like the newest addition to the royal family is a hit - as Major League Baseball has proved.

But this week, baby Archie made his first official public appearance during the royal tour of Africa and the photographs are unbelievably cute. Keep scrolling to get a glimpse of how adorable the royal baby is...

The public have almost grown up with Prince Harry.

Born on September 15th in 1984, we've seen him lose his mother at a very young age, undergo numerous scandals, and come out on the other side.

And, at the same time, Meghan Markle was growing up in Los Angeles.

Markle had a much more conventional upbringing - although this image suggests that she may have always aspired for more.

Markle made a career for herself in Hollywood.

She's best known for her role as Rachel Zane in legal drama series, Suits, between the years 2011 and 2017.

Harry and Meghan had an almost picture perfect love story.

The pair were introduced by mutual friends in June of 2016 and clearly hit it off right away.

Things moved fairly quickly.

On November 17th of 2017, the pair announced to the world that they had become engaged. The social significance of an African American divorcee joining the royal family was not lost on the world.

The wedding didn't disappoint.

Harry and Meghan were wed on May 19th of 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle - and it was one of the most-watched television events of the year.

The ceremony was beautiful.

One of the best things about it is the fact that it combined the worlds of the British royals and Hollywood stars, with the Queen rubbing shoulders with the likes of Oprah.

Soon after, there was even more exciting news.

The couple announced their pregnancy on the 15th of October 2018. Many were super excited - not just about a royal baby, but because said baby was sure to be incredibly, incredibly cute.

Their son was born on May 6th of 2019.

He was given the somewhat controversial name of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, which many thought was not traditional enough for a member of the royal family.

But he was as cute as the world had hoped he would be.

At seventh in line to the succession of the British throne, he's set to live a pretty unusual life!

There was one thing that many noticed.

The way that both parents (although Meghan, in particular) looked at their newborn was enough to warm the coldest of hearts.

Although she wasn't alone.

On their newly set up family Instagram account, Harry and Meghan shared a truly adorable picture of the entire royal family cooing over the newest addition.

Their Instagram has been a valuable source of royal gossip.

This Father's Day, the account shared a new and exclusive image of Prince Archie that got everyone online talking.

In fact, if you want to stay up to date with the pair, their Instagram is the place to go.

They shared another wonderfully cute update on their social media.

It was when the two attended their first Major League Baseball game.

While Harry was already confirmed to be in attendance, Meghan's turning up was something of a surprise. The game took place in London.

The two looked typically adorable together.

Harry was wearing a casual polo shirt and jeans, while Meghan wore a belted black dress. They were constantly smiling and looking into one another's eyes.

But the cuteness didn't end there.

Harry and Meghan also received gifts from the two baseball teams - and one, in particular, is enough to make anyone melt.

The gifts in question were actually for little Archie.

They received jerseys from both the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox in an appropriately tiny size. There's something about miniature clothes that just makes you want to go "awww!"

Of course, that's not the only reason.

Seeing Harry and Meghan looking so happy together in one of their first public appearances since becoming parents has made many feel all warm and fuzzy.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on their 10-day tour of Africa.

The tour sees Harry and Meghan visit South Africa as a part of a program designed to cover their favorite charitable causes and boost Britain's relationships abroad.

They have already been kept extremely busy...

On their tour so far, the duke and duchess have visited South Africa's oldest mosque and visited a charity that provides mental health support for young people. Meghan told teenage girls in a deprived part of South Africa that she was visiting the country, not only as a member of the royal family, but also "as a woman of color and as your sister."

The couple will also visit parts of the country that the late Lady Diana visited...

Harry will honor Princess Diana’s advocacy against landmines in Angola by making a trip very similar to the one that his mother made in January 1997, when she walked across a minefield in Huambo in central Angola.

Baby Archie is also on tour with his royal parents...

And we got the opportunity to see some beautiful photographs of the baby's first official royal appearance.

Archie came along to the meeting with the Archbishop Desmond Tutu in his Legacy Foundation in Cape Town.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is well known for his campaigning and has gained a great deal of respect in his country.

The resemblance to Prince Harry is just uncanny...

Archie is clearly the double image of his dad, and it's safe to say that he's just as cute as Harry was when he was a baby.

Archie looked smiley and happy...

The BBC reported that the pair joked about their son's time in front of the cameras, in which Meghan said: "He's an old soul," and Harry remarked: "I think he is used to it already."

This was a special day for many...

The Archbishop said that he was "thrilled" by the "rare privilege and honor" of meeting the royals.

They took to their Instagram account to share their joys in traveling...

"Thank you, Archbishop Tutu, for your incredibly warm hospitality, Archie loved meeting you!" they wrote, sharing a beautiful snap of the Archbishop giving Archie a kiss on the head.

They are quite simply, a beautiful family.

The duke and duchess seem to be doing an amazing job raising baby Archie, and we can only hope that more photographs of the little one will be released very soon.
