The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and five-month-old Archie have arrived back in the UK following their successful 10-day tour and if you were sad to see the tail-end of it, you’ll be happy to hear that there may be more to come – in the form of a documentary.

As the royal family-of-three jetted out of Johannesburg on Wednesday, ITV News presenter Tom Bradby, who has previously filmed a documentary with Harry in Africa in 2016 and interviewed Prince William and Kate following after their engagement in 2010, confirmed that he had been working on a project with the Sussexes tweeting: “Just finished filming a documentary on Harry and Meghan in Africa.

“I think it will explain a lot when it airs.”

The confirmation of the documentary comes just days after it was announced Duchess Meghan was suing the Mail On Sunday for their publication of a private letter she wrote to her father, alongside an emotional statement by Prince Harry condemning the “ruthless” treatment of his wife Meghan at the hands of the British tabloids, saying he no longer wants to be “a silent witness to [Meghan’s] private suffering.”

While there’s no word yet on what the documentary will follow, it’s likely it will feature behind-the-scenes footage from the couple’s 10-day tour across South Africa, Botswana, Angola and Malawi, as well as the moment which captured the world – Archie’s royal tour debut in Cape Town during a visit to Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

The royal tour was jam-packed with highlights from day one, with Meghan delighting locals and fans at her very first engagement in Cape Town when she showed off her dance moves with some a group of dancers.

While Harry took solo trips to Botswana, Angola and Malawi to continue his work on conservation, reducing the stigma around HIV and supporting education, Meghan remained in South Africa, championing women’s rights and empowerment and taking a stand against gender-based violence, something that has been a significant point of discussion in South Africa recently.

Addressing guests at a reception at the Johannesburg’s British High Commission on their final day, Meghan said of her time: “Over the past 10 days our family has had emotional moments, we’ve had poignant moments, we’ve had spiritual moments; we’ve met inspirational leaders in every walk of life, and we’ve been treated to incredible food, music and dancing. But above all, we have been able to meet people that are the rocks behind the sort of work that really means so much to us.

“It’s been affirming to learn that we’re not alone in the things that we believe in, and the principles we hold so dear.

“No matter how different our lives may seem, Africa, you have made us feel part of your community, of our shared community.”

She also added that having the opportunity to meet such a range of change-making, inspiring people had been a life-changing experience.

“From students to politicians, from apartheid campaigners of the ’50s to teenagers on a beach, from the mothers with HIV providing health care to their community, and to the entrepreneurs who are driving the business of the future – they all show me a power and solidarity that, in this moment, in this time, all women, and all people, can take strength and inspiration from,” she said.

“Because these amazing African women, have discovered self-belief and found their worth.”
