“Archbishop Tutu will be remembered for his optimism, his moral clarity, and his joyful spirit. He was an icon for racial justice and beloved across the world,” Meghan and Harry shared.

They continued, “It was only two years ago that he held our son, Archie, while we were in South Africa – ‘Arch and The Arch’ he had joked, his infectious laughter ringing through the room, relaxing anyone in his presence. He remained a friend and will be sorely missed by all.”

In September 2019, the pair introduce their son to the the Nobel Peace Prize winner and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe during a trip to South Africa.
