Sorry lads, no Meghan Markle for Malawi


Buckingham palace has announced Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will visit Southern Africa from Monday 23rd September to October 2 and among the country’s he will tour is Malawi.

This will not be the first time for Harry to come to the warm heart of Africa where he is invested in the African Parks with specific interest in lions and elephants.

The catch was Meghan Markle and the embodiment of charm she carries with her but Malawians will not get to witness it as their itinerary shows she will not accompany Harry to Malawi.

A statement from the Royal Communications said: “Their Royal Highnesses will together visit South Africa. The Duke of Sussex will also visit Angola and Malawi at the request of the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) and will undertake a short working trip to Botswana while in the region.”

South Africans are the ones who will get a glimpse of the couple and the royal child Archie according to Sussex official Instagram.

During his visit Harry will engage in various activities among which will be to pay tribute to British soldier, guardsman Mathew Talbot of the Coldstream Guards, who was killed by an elephant during an anti-poaching operation in May.

He will also meet with President Peter Mutharika, dedicate Liwonde National Park and the adjoining Mangochi Forest to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, joining Chimaliro Forest, which was dedicated by The Duke of Gloucester in 2018.

Last time Harry was in the country he spent three weeks working on translocation of 500 elephants herds from Majete and Liwonde, where numbers are thriving, to help replenish stocks in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, which is now under the control of African Parks.

Harry is the president of African Parks.
