The couple also recalled his meeting with their son Archie Harrison during their royal tour of the country in 2019. “It was only two years ago that he held our son, Archie, while we were in South Africa – “Arch and The Arch” he had joked, his infectious laughter ringing through the room, relaxing anyone in his presence. He remained a friend and will be sorely missed by all.“

Tutu’s wife, Mam Leah Tutu, and the Tutu family received heartfelt condolences from President Cyril Ramaphosa, who expressed his sadness on behalf of all South Africans. “The passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans, who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa.

“Desmond Tutu was a patriot without equal; a leader of principle and pragmatism, who gave meaning to the biblical insight that faith without works is dead,” said Ramaphosa said in a statement.

Desmond Mpilo Tutu, born on October 7, 1931 in Klerksdorp, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his nonviolent role in opposing apartheid in South Africa.
