Prince Harry is on a solo visit to Zambia

Prince Harry chats to Zambian war veterans 

Prince Harry arrived in Zambia solo yesterday for a whirlwind, two-day visit. Just weeks after returning from his first official tour as a married man, the Duke of Sussex once again touched down abroad, this time however, he is not accompanied by his wife Duchess Meghan.  

Today is the one year anniversary of Harry and Meghan's official engagement announcement, but Prince Harry (34) is in Zambia alone, without his wife Duchess Meghan (37). The Duke of Sussex will be meeting representatives of the organisation CAMFED, which helps empower young women and girls though education and tackling poverty and inequality. Duchess Meghan is a strong advocate for the empowerment of young women and girls and so it is only fitting that Prince Harry meet with some of CAMFED's members today.

Prince Harry was greeted at the airport by nine-year-old Jane Chawanangwa who solemnly handed over a bouquet of flowers welcoming him to Zambia. He attended a reception at the British High Commission yesterday evening celebrating links between the U.K. and Zambia.

Earlier today Prince Harry visited Burma Barracks to commemorate Zambian veterans from both world wars and to meet their widows.

"For far too long, you and other young leaders have struggled to secure funding, recognition and support – despite all the important work you're doing. Too often funders and investors miss what you're doing because they can't find you or see what you're achieving. As a result, opportunities for both parties are lost. We established The Queen's Commonwealth Trust to be your platform. The place where your voices can be heard, where your work is seen and taken seriously, and your experiences and insight are shared with others to create the maximum impact – for what the world really needs right now." — The Duke of Sussex, Queen's Commonwealth Trust President, and Commonwealth Young Ambassador, at Circus Zambia, a partner of the Trust.

He also visited Circus Zambia, an organisation which equips young people from vulnerable backgrounds across Lusaka with life skills while providing educational and employment opportunities.

The organisation is a partner of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, of which Prince Harry is president. The trust aims to improve the lives of young people throughout the Commonwealth, finding and funding young people whose bright ideas solve local problems in education, health, the environment and sport.
