On Sunday the documentary of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal tour of southern Africa, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, will air in the United Kingdom on ITV. As a lead-up, the network has released a trailer for the special—and it is chock full of adorable, intimate moments.

One snippet, in particular, has quite the aww factor. In it, Prince Harry holds their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, on a balcony. Mom Meghan Markle comes over to dote on the baby by tenderly kissing his forehead. Prince Harry then whispers “Let’s go” to his wife, and they head out the door.

Judging by his outfit of blue-and-white overalls, it seems the moment was captured before or after the family’s meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

During that royal engagement, Archie’s parents revealed some new facts about the five-month-old. “He’s an old soul!” Markle said when onlookers remarked how well the baby handled the press surrounding him. “I think he is used to it already.”

Harry also shared that he “constantly wants to stand.”

They also may have revealed the baby’s sweet nickname: On their way to meet the Nobel Peace Prize winner, cameras captured royals calling him “Bubba.”

And, with a behind-the-scenes documentary on the horizon, more precious tidbits about Archie Mountbatten-Windsor are sure to emerge.
