Prince Harry met President Peter Mutharika at the official opening of the UK-Africa Investment summit in London. Harry was photographed smiling as he shook hands with Mutharika, and the Prime Minister of Morocco Saad-Eddine El Othmani.

Malawi hopes to secure meaningful deals with UK investors in her quest for development. This has been the dream for Malawi when she attended the India-Africa Summit, the US-Africa Summit, the Russia-Africa Summit as well.

That occasion is thought to have completed Prince Harry’s final duties today before he flies back to Canada this evening.

The Duke of Sussex appeared happy as he attended the UK-Africa Investment Summit in Greenwich this morning where he is due to host a number of private meetings.

It is thought Harry then has an ’empty diary’ going forwards, with no official engagements in the pipeline, according to the MailOnline.

The publication also states that staff at Frogmore Cottage, where the Sussexes live, have already been sent home, as Harry prepares to join Meghan and Archie in Vancouver.

However, a source has said Harry will be returning in the spring as there is still ‘more to come’ for the Duke.

It is believed he will have more engagements during the ‘transition period’, before he and Meghan become financially independent.

Harry’s reported return to Canada will see him miss Prince William’s first solo reception at Buckingham Palace this evening.

The move is believed to be the first of many responsibilities issued by the Queen to assist the Duke of Cambridge in preparing to eventually become King.

He will welcome 21 African delegations into the palace, with other royals including Prince Edward and Princess Anne also in attendance.

Earlier today it was revealed that Harry and William had reportedly healed the rift between them through a series of secret talks.

The meetings were said to be ‘ground-breaking’ in terms of saving the Dukes’ ‘bond as brothers’, before Harry moves away.

“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges.

“And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.’ thumbnail for post ID 12089329Man's arm 'exploded' after catheter was put in wrong Harry added that he had intended to ‘continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and military associations but without public funding’ but noted that ‘unfortunately, that wasn’t possible”. He continued: “I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.

“But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.”
