Archie is & # 39; the best ticket & # 39; for Duke and Duchess of Sussex to win back the hearts of the nation
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are preparing for their two-week African tour, a royal expert has claimed that Archie & # 39; the best ticket & # 39; is for them to reclaim the hearts of the nation.
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told the Telegraph, that the five-month-old son of Meghan and Harry was the key to winning their PR fight – and should not hide him.
Harry, 34 and Meghan, 37, will travel to South Africa next week, where they will visit Cape Town and Johannesburg as a family.
The pair has been heavily criticized in recent months – it was revealed that they flew to Europe with a private jet and spent £ 2.4 million in public money to renovate Frogmore Cottage.

& # 39; From the point of view of public relations, the duke and duchess really have to show the people to Archie, & # 39; said Ingrid.
& # 39; He's the best ticket they have to make people fall in love with them, & # 39; she added.
The couple has been very private about Archie since he was born in Windsor on May 6 and have kept him away from the public if possible.
But Ingrid emphasized that the Sussex people should see their son to make the country popular again.
Ingrid Seward said that Harry and Meghan had to show the public their son to regain some popularity (shown at Dubbo Airport in 2018 during their tour through Australia)
& # 39; People are very sensitive to images of children, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I don't see the point of dragging it all the way there just to protect it, & # 39; she added.
The trip marks the first overseas tour the family has made, allowing them to travel through Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The couple was once the darling of the nation, millions gathered to see them get married last year, but a series of faux passport messages have eroded their good reputation.

Harry and Meghan were heavily criticized last month when it came to light that they had reportedly made four journeys by private jet in 11 days to Ibiza and Nice.
The setback was reinforced by the fact that the couple campaigned on environmental issues.
While in July, when the Duchess stepped out of Windsor to look at Wimbledon, it was reported that fans of royals were not allowed to take photos of her.
Meghan was branded as & # 39; childish & # 39; and a & # 39; control freak & # 39; after Sally Jones, 64, revealed that she had been warned about taking photos – and told the & # 39; embarrassed & # 39; bodyguard of the Royal that she was trying to get a photo of Serena and had no idea that Meghan was there.
When she spoke to MailOnline, she added: “There were about 200 photographers who took her away, but the security was sent to warn an old biddy like me. It makes them look stupid. It's childish and fooling us & # 39 ;.
The public was also outraged to hear how the couple had spent £ 2.4 million in public funds on the renovation of Frogmore Cottage.

It was reported that Harry and Meghan had splashed several expensive designs to update the old home, including an "eco-boiler" of £ 50,000 in an on-site building that provides endless hot water and low-carbon heat.
Rumors about freezing relationships between Harry and William have only added salt to the injury.
However, nothing in the pair's schedule indicates that we get the chance to see Archie during their varied assignments, however.
Prince Harry and Meghan have so far spent no less than £ 2.4 million in public funds on their home improvements at Frogmore Cottage. This money comes from the Sovereign Grant, valued this year at £ 82.2 million and consists of profit from the Queen's real estate portfolio (the Crown Estate), which is paid to the government
While Prince Harry is following in the footsteps of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales by focusing on landmines and HIV awareness, Meghan will devote her time to ensuring the education and safety of women.
Meghan reportedly wants & # 39; solution and action oriented & # 39; are and will bring coloring books, pens and pencils for the children.
The duchess will stay with South Africa with Archie, while Prince Harry travels to Botswana and Malawi to focus on land mine and nature conservation.
