HONANSURBUS – British Prince Harry is due to arrive in Malawi on Sunday, the last stop on his solo tour of southern Africa, before joining his wife Megan and four-month-old son Archie in Johannesburg.
The Sussex Duke has left the Duchess and Archie – who stole the spotlight while sitting on his mother's lap while his parents talk to Nobel Peace Prize laureate Desmond Tutu in Cape Town – to visit Botswana, Angola and Malawi.
While Harry has visited Malawi several times privately, this trip will mark his first official visit.
He arrives in the capital, Lilongwe, on Sunday to attend college and interact with young women whose education is supported by UK funding.
After that, he will meet with President Peter Mutarika, who he has known after meeting on several occasions before, and later attending a reception hosted by the British High Commissioner.
Harry, Queen Elizabeth's nephew and sixth in line to the throne, has been visiting South Africa for holidays and conservation work for two decades. The trip is part of an overseas tour with Megan and Archie – their first as a family.
After drawing a crowd of well-wishers to Cape Town, South Africa, the 35-year-old Duke of Sussex went on a solo trip to Botswana and Angola – two visits that are of particular importance to the duke – before continuing on to Malawi.
On Monday, Harry will fly to Livond National Park in Malawi, where he will join the anti-poaching patrol with local parks and witness a demonstration against poaching, conducted jointly by local rangers and the UK military.
Afterwards, he will visit a health center, pharmacy and youth reproductive health program on Tuesday before returning to his family in South Africa for another visit to the city, this time in Johannesburg.
