UK’s Prince Harry Meets Malawi’s President on Africa Tour

LILONGWE – Britain’s Prince Harry met on Sunday with Malawi’s President Peter Mutharika on the first day of his visit to the southern African country.

Prince Harry held a private meeting with Mutharika, who has been in power since 2014, at the presidential palace in Lilongwe, the African country’s government said.

During his first official visit to Malawi, which he visited in a personal capacity in 2016 and 2017, the Duke of Sussex met with Mutharika, who was re-elected in May in elections marred by electoral fraud allegations.

Some opposition members sought to prevent the meeting.

Harry attended the private meeting after taking part in an event at Lilongwe’s Nalikule College of Education, where he was welcomed with dancing and cheers.

At the school, Harry learned firsthand about a project launched by a non-governmental organization, the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), to boost women’s education in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.

One of the outstanding moments of the event was when his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, made a surprise appearance via Skype from South Africa, where she stayed with their son as part of the tour of southern Africa.

Meghan, a vocal advocate for women’s education, started to dance to the rhythm set by the girls and CAMFED staff in a classroom and delivered a speech.

On Monday, Harry will visit Liwonde National Park to participate in an anti-poaching exercise by Malawian guards and British military personnel.

On Tuesday, the final day of his visit to Malawi, the British royal will visit several health projects before heading to South Africa to meet up with his wife and son.

The tour, which kicked off on Sept. 23, also included stops in Botswana and South Africa.

South Africa was the first stop. Meghan and the couple’s son, Archie, stayed there while Harry toured the other countries in southern Africa.

Africa is a special place for the royal couple, since Botswana was the first country they visited together at the start of their relationship in 2016.

The family is scheduled to return to the UK on Wednesday from Johannesburg.
