Minister of Tourism,Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane has indicated that government has pulled out all the stops to ensure the safety of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

“Quite a lot of work has been put in place to ensure that those who come to our shores remain safe and can return to their loved ones safely,” said Kubayi-Ngubane.

Britain's Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and baby Archie are expected in South Africa on Monday to begin their first official tour as a family since their son's birth in May.

"Our family will be taking its first official tour of Africa, a region of the world that over the past two decades has been a second home to me," said Harry on Instagram.

"On a personal note, I can't wait to introduce my wife and son to South Africa."

Harry has travelled widely across Africa and jointly founded the charity Sentebale in 2006, to help support children affected by HIV, after spending a gap year in Lesotho.

He will also travel to Botswana and Malawi to promote conservation work and HIV prevention projects.
