Britain’s Prince Harry hosted Malawian President Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika at Buckingham Palace in London when they has a private audience on Tuesday.
According to Presidential Press Secretary Mgeme Kalilani, the Prince and the Malawi leader discussed how to further promote wildlife conservation as one way of enriching benefits that Malawi gets from its tourism industry.
Prince Harry is a nature conservationist and is doing several conservation projects in Malawi including the relocation of elephants from densily populated national parks to those with less elephant populations.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano said the President’s meeting with the Prince was “fruitful.”
Meanwhile, Mutharika has hailed the long standing partnership which Malawi enjoys with the All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) in the United Kingdom Parliament.

Adressing members of the group, President Mutharika who was accompanied by the First Lady Gertrude Mutharika highlighted strides that his government has made to develop Malawi in all sectors.
Lord David Steel was leading the United Kingdom’s APPG at the audience.
