Prince Harry today met with Zambia military veterans when he graced an event commemorating the contribution of Zambians who served in World War I and World War II.

The Duke of Sussex, who served in the British army, wore his military medals on a pale grey suit civilian suit as he greeted Zambian servicemen in uniform and posed for photographs at the Burma Barracks in Lusaka.

Prince Harry, 34, looked in high spirits on day two of his visit to Zambia as he laughed and joked with WW2 veterans and war widows.

He will also paid a visit to BongoHive, Zambia’s first technology and innovation hub, and Circus Zambia, which provides educational and job opportunities to young people.

The Duke of Sussex is the latest member of the monarchy to visit Africa in the wake of British PM Theresa May’s push to deepen trade ties with the continent following Brexit.

Prince Harry is following in the footsteps of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall – who toured three African nations earlier this month.

Yesterday, the duke met President Edgar Lungu during a meeting at State House.
