Stopping in Angola and Malawi are reportedly on the agenda, although no details have been confirmed by the palace.
It is unclear whether the couple's son, Archie, will travel with his parents or stay at home.

Harry has visited Angola in the past. In 2013 he traveled to the Cuando Cubango province to experience the impact of landmines in the region.
