Meghan Markle has donated some of Archie’s “loved but outgrown” clothes to a HIV organisation in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, completed her first two solo engagements of the South Africa royal tour yesterday, meeting female entrepreneurs at the Woodstock Exchange before travelling to visit the mothers2mothers charity.

"Here's a few little things that I thought would be helpful," the Duchess of Sussex told members of the charity, handing over two large bags of clothes.

The items included two white vests, one with the slogan “The Future” and another bearing the logo for Invictus Games, the international adaptive multi-sport event created by Archie’s father, Prince Harry.

“[Archie’s] outgrown his Invictus one,” said the Duchess, explaining why her four-month-old son did not need the clothes anymore.

The charity mother2mothers, often shortened to m2m, is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV through.

Meghan’s donation was explained further on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, in a post which pictures the royal playing with a small girl at the event.
