Prince Harry meets President of Angola while visiting the palace while continuing his solo journey through the country before traveling to Malawi tomorrow while Meghan Markle and baby Archie are staying in South Africa
- Prince Harry met the audience with Angola President João Lourenço during a solo trip
- He visited a minefield where his mother Princess Diana launched her anti-landmine campaign 22 years ago
- Duke will continue to Malawi tomorrow before joining Meghan and baby Archie in South Africa again
Prince Harry met the president of Angola while continuing his solo journey through the country that his mother Diana toured during an anti-land mine campaign more than 20 years ago.
The Duke of Sussex had an audience with leader João Lourenço in the presidential palace in Luanda, Angola on the sixth day of his royal tour through Africa with wife Meghan and baby Archie.
Harry will visit a hospital later to see the work of a project led by the first lady of the country, Ana Dias Lourenco, whom he met yesterday.
The project focuses on preventing HIV / AIDS transmission from mothers to their babies in a country where high fertility, a young population and a lack of awareness increase the number of infections.
The Prince will move to Malawi tomorrow, before joining Meghan in South Africa on the tenth day.

Prince Harry began yesterday's emotional pilgrimage to Angola where his deceased mother launched an anti-landmine campaign, her last major crusade before her premature death.
Tragically, the princess has never seen her work to bring about a worldwide ban on weapons.
But yesterday her adored son withdrew her footsteps and put on the same protective bulletproof vest and visor she did 22 years earlier to detonate a device in a partially cleared field in Dirico, in the southeast of the country.
Harry, 35, entered an area that was once an artillery base for anti-government troops who had quit the position in 2000, during the decades-long civil war that tore the country apart.

Earlier yesterday, the Duke of Sussex walked through a minefield in Dirico, Angola, during a visit to the work of land mine clearance organization the Halo Trust
Harry & # 39; s mother Diana visited a minefield in Angola in January 1997. The Princess of Wales visited Huambo to draw worldwide attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed
Like everyone who visits the site, which is being cleared by The Halo Trust, the same landmines charity organization that worked with Dianna, Harry had received a safety briefing and did not tell him that he was walking, touching or walking away from the cleared lanes.
Afterwards the prince said: "Landmines are an unhealed war sign. By clearing landmines, we can help this community find peace, and peace comes with opportunities. & # 39;
He and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, also posted on their official Instagram page honoring the work of his mother who "helped change the course of history."
They added: “The duke is humble to visit a place and community that was so special to his mother, and to acknowledge her tireless mission as an advocate for anyone who felt that she had a voice most needed, even if the issue was not universally popular. & # 39;
