PRINCE Harry, the Duke of Sussex in England, is next week expected in Zambia on a two-day visit to celebrate the cordial relations that exist between the United Kingdom (UK) and Zambia, Special Assistant to the President Amos Chanda has said.
Mr Chanda said during his visit, the Duke would meet President Lungu at State House on Monday to discuss Zambia’s World War One centenary commemorations, the UK’s support to Zambian peacekeeping troops, and conservation issues.
Mr Chanda told journalists at State House recently that President Lungu had accepted to host Prince Harry in Zambia and that Buckingham Palace, the residence for the royal family, had been communicated to accordingly.
Prince Harry will meet young people and key figures working in the conservation sector, surviving veterans and widows of veterans, as well as people in youth empowerment programmes at Circus Zambia and BongoHive.
The Duke will also attend an event for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which he is president.
He will also attend a board meeting of African Parks, of which he is also president.
