The Duke of Sussex has arrived in Zambia for a two-day visit during which he will attend a commemoration of Zambian military veterans and meet officials, social workers and young entrepreneurs.

A girl with flowers and traditional dancers welcomed Harry after he stepped off a plane in the Zambian capital Lusaka on Monday.

The duke later planned to attend a reception celebrating ties between Britain and Zambia.

Harry’s schedule on Tuesday includes a visit to a military barracks and an event of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which supports the social work of young people worldwide, and of which he is president.
