The trip to North Africa could see the Duke and Duchess, who is set to give birth in April or May, championing causes that are close to them. Meghan has been open about her passion for education and empowerment for girls and women. Harry has been on the forefront of supporting mental health and veterans causes. In November, Harry made a visit to African sans his wife. The royal made a two-day trip to the country of Zambia.
The former Suits actress missed the trip, due to risks of the Zika virus. In her absence, Harry attended an event close to her heart. The royal met with Angeline Murimirwa, executive director of the women’s empowerment organization CAMFED. The trip to Africa will be the furthest the royal couple has traveled since October. Harry and Meghan marked their first royal tour as a married couple with their 16-day trip to Australia, Fuji, New Zealand and Tonga.
