Are you listening, South Africa? Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan of Sussex are headed your way this fall, after Buckingham Palace belatedly confirmed Thursday what an enthusiastic British official in South Africa had already let slip. 

Buckingham Palace, which typically waits to confirm royal visits abroad until after the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have signed off, announced Thursday what most everybody already knew:

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to South Africa this Autumn at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office,” the palace statement said.

But it looks like Meghan will be going only to South Africa, while Harry will visit Angola and Malawi and also will pay a “working visit to Botswana while in the region,” the statement added.

And that was it, except the usual: “Further details will be advised in due course.”

The most important detail – will baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor be accompanying the couple to South Africa? – was conspicuously missing from the statement.
