LUSAKA, Zambia (AP) — Britain’s Prince Harry has met with military veterans in Zambia during events to commemorate those who served in World War I and World War II.

The Duke of Sussex, who served in the British army, on Tuesday wore his military medals on a civilian suit as he greeted Zambian servicemen in uniform and posed for photographs at the Burma Barracks in Lusaka, the Zambian capital.

The prince met Zambian President Edgar Lungu on Monday. The prince’s schedule also includes an event of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which supports the social work of young people worldwide. Harry is president of the trust.

The prince also is visiting Circus Zambia, which provides educational and job opportunities to young people, and BongoHive, a Zambian technology and innovation center that helps entrepreneurs.
