^There's certainly some romantic attachment to Africa by both princes.  They go a lot and there's rarely any appropriate media coverage of it.  Maybe it's where they go to be themselves or hide.  No clue.

Harry goes to two or three of these types of board meetings each year to do with one or other wildlife charity - African Parks is the main one. He usually adds on a visit to such a park which would justify the expense of the trip over a skype session.

As this trip, though, is at the request of the FCO there will, no doubt, also be meetings with government leaders which will also mean some sort of talks behind the scenes.

When senior royals do overseas tours there is always at least one, if not more than one, government official who is there to talk about business or other issues with the local government but they do so under the radar of the royal visit (why royal visits are described as 'soft diplomacy' because the business side of things isn't the focus of the visit).

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Prince Harry holds private meeting with victims of knife crime in a bid to curb youth violence
While Meghan was meeting survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster on Wednesday, Harry held a ‘round table discussion’ with young people from MAC UK.
It’s an organisation based in the East End of London that tries to engage with youths who’ve been sucked into gangs or become mired in anti-social activity.
Harry is proving as good as his word because he announced in the summer that he planned to target the cause of deadly knife crime.
‘At the end of last year, knife crime skyrocketed,’ he said. ‘But [it] is a symptom of a cause. So therefore go and speak to the young people.’
He is using the Royal Foundation, which he heads with Meghan and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to run a project where young people will give their views on the root causes.
A Kensington Palace spokesman declines to comment on the ‘private’ meeting, but a source tells me: ‘It was held so that funders of MAC UK could hear directly from young people about what they think the solutions to youth violence are.’

Such nonsense trying to add her to the engagement. This is a serious issue that needs total focus on solutions; hence the attention seeker was absent.

I don't want to sound stereotypist or racist but who in the gun era is doing knife fights? Also, why meet with the victims. Why not work on bringing those knife *fools* to justice.

The UK has very strict laws on who can get hold of a gun. Knives are easier to access - hence more knife crimes rather than gun crimes in the UK.

Sounds horrible. How about tasers and pepper sprays. Aren't they popular at least? I was about to make a joke about who brings a knife at gunfight but if you can't bring a gun for self-defense how do people protect themselves?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to split for royal engagement after exhausting tour
Prince Harry is set to travel to Zambia on Monday for a two day visit next week on the request of the Foreign Office. The prince will be visiting the British High Commission in Zambia's capital, Lusaka, to honour the UK's long-standing relationship with the southern African country. However, Meghan will not be joining Harry for the overseas trip.
Royal expert Richard Fitzswilliams told Express.co.uk: "When Prince Harry goes to Zambia on 26th and 27th November at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, it will mean he will be apart from Meghan on the anniversary of their engagement.  eating cookies
"Meghan will not be accompanying him as she has recently undertaken an exhaustive four-nation tour of the Pacific and is thought to be between four and five months pregnant.”  tehe
Meghan, who is between four to five months pregnant, might also notably skip a couple of engagements in the next few weeks to come, but will try and complete "as many duties" as she can.
Mr Fitzwilliams added: "Prince Harry’s schedule in Zambia consists of a series of events mostly linked to youth, the military and conservation which are among the causes which he has helped the most.
"Meghan will obviously be pacing herself in the months to come but she and Harry have had busy schedules recently and she will undoubtedly do as many duties as she possibly can."

Knife crime in the UK is on a par with gun violence in the US. Also acid attacks. Acid attacks & knife crime are on a constant rise and seem to be insurmountable problems in the UK (well, mostly England really). Also moped gangs. And gang crime...

The danger of the Zika virus is also  being given  as a reason Meghan won't go to Zambia but I seem to remember a recent tour where she was likely to be exposed to this virus !! I think there's something else  going on here

Yep. Harry doesn't want her there. Maybe even the plan is to leave her at Frogmore with mommy while he still lives in the bachelor house in London after the delivery.

That to me is the part that doesn't make sense - not going to Zambia because of the Zika virus but happy to go to Fiji and Tonga which both have the Zika Virus. Something isn't right here - either Harry doesn't want her or she was never going and this is a made up story or something else is the real reason (I wouldn't be surprised if HM is clipping her wings a bit given the negative press at the moment). It could also be a health issue and not zika specifically but the doctors telling her not to fly ...

^ thumbsup but much too late now to say doctors told her not to fly.
The discrepancies about her bump as seen in the expecting thread tells me she’s not pregnant and is trying to bide her time thinking that her nasty self won’t be expose or she’s trying to embarrass the royal family into paying her off. What ticks me off is that is that the knife crime issue and other serious issues Harry has and wants to get involved with is being highjacked by his attention seeking grifter ‘wife.’

Not one official quote from KP about viruses or Meghan supposedly going on this trip, but as usual the Fail pads this short article out with its usual 'it is believed' and 'palace insiders' (unnamed of course.)

Harry will be nearing the 200 engagement mark at the end of the year and this will boost his numbers. Meghan's total as a new married-in doesn't need boosting. She's already done more than 100 after marrying in mid-May and can rest on her laurels until next year, especially as she did 24 engagements before marriage 

The official announcement from KP was that Harry was to do this two day tour to Zambia alone, as usual at the request of the FO and CO. IMO if it had been intended, ever, that Meghan was to go on this trip then she would have been included in the announcement.

To be honest, Harry is not bright or politically savvy enough to be making foreign decisions for that country. If it is a charity event, why did the FO call him in?
