The Duke of Sussex arrived at Lusaka airport in Zambia on November 26, 2018, on a quick two-day visit to the southern African country, according to a post on Kensington Palace's Twitter account.

Zambian Royal fans were disappointed since Duchess Meghan of Sussex who was scheduled to accompany her husband, stayed home. In her absence, the Prince did the honors and was greeted with great enthusiasm by the crowd.

GREETED AT THE AIRPORT BY A TINY FAN

Prince Harry was greeted at the Lusaka airport by a young admirer who presented him with a bouquet of flowers. The lucky fan is 9-year-old Jane Chawanangwa who wore a proper "princess dress" in frothy white tulle to greet the Prince.

She was accompanied by a troop of traditional dancers in full regalia who performed an exciting welcoming dance for Prince Harry.

ZIKA OUTBREAK PREVENTS THE PREGNANT DUCHESS' VISIT TO ZAMBIA

Prince Harry arrived in Zambia without his wife, much to the disappointment of her many fans. Duchess Meghan is pregnant, and an outbreak of the Zika virus was reported in Zambia's neighbors.

The Zika virus is spread by mosquito bites, and although it is not life threatening, it causes birth defects in unborn children. An infected pregnant woman passes the virus to her unborn baby who can develop microcephaly. The Zika virus also increases the risk of Guillain-Barre syndrome – a rare illness in which the immune system attacks the nerves, resulting in muscle weakness and paralysis.

“As far as those on the ground in Zambia were concerned both Meghan and Harry were going. But Meghan is exhausted and, understandably, expressed serious concerns about traveling to a country with even the smallest Zika threat."

The Duchess, who married Prince Harry of Windsor in a fairytale ceremony in May 2018, is expected to give birth to the Royal baby in the Spring of 2019.
