Baby Archie meeting Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has not only seen him dominate global news headlines, but he is also a favourite among Twitter users who have thrust his name to the very top of the platform’s trend list.

Mom, dad and son spent the last day of their city tour meeting the archbishop and his daughter Thandeka and introducing them to baby Archie, who was showered with endless hugs and kisses during the visit.

Tutu congratulated Prince Harry for his and Meghan’s son, saying, “congratulations, he is wonderful”.

Twitter was immediately flooded with messages of admiration for baby Archie, who is the spitting image of his father.
