Quite logically considering that the Duchess is at the moment pregnant.
Prince Harry will travel to Zambia on a solo trip next month to represent his grandmother’s charity, the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust. The Duchess of Sussex will not join her husband on the trip, as she is currently between the fourth or fifth month of her pregnancy. In a statement released on Twitter, Kensington Palace said: “The Duke of Sussex will visit Zambia on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th November, at the request of the Foreign Office.
“As part of the visit, The Duke will attend a reception at [the British High Commissioner’s residence] to celebrate UK-Zambia relations and will visit Burma Barracks to attend an event commemorating WWI and WWII Zambian veterans.
“In Zambia, The Duke will attend events for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which he is President.
“The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust champions, funds and connects young leaders who are leading social purpose ventures around the world.
“The Duke will visit BongoHive, Zambia’s first technology and innovation hub. The organisation provides a range of startup and tech programmes, workshops and events all focused on making Zambia Africa’s next hotbed of innovation.”
One long overseas trip per pregnancy is enough, as Meghan and Harry finished a 16-day trip in which he visited Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji in October.
And the trip began on the day that they announced to the world that they are expecting. Meghan, even with an exhausting schedule, managed to attend 76 official engagements, which left her feeling “tired” at the end of it all.
But after a small break, the Duchess was back to her royal duties with full force. Meghan and Harry’s first child is due to arrive sometime in Spring 2019.
British tourists to Zambia are advised to avoid all political rallies and demonstrations and to take care of travelling in rural parts of the country, close to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The government also warns tourists not to drive after dark outside the main towns.
‘There is a risk of explosive remnants of war in remote areas near the borders with Angola, Mozambique and DRC.
‘Terrorist attacks in Zambia can’t be ruled out,’ the Foreign Office website reads.
