An ‘exhausted’ Duchess of Sussex is said to have pulled out of a visit to Zambia over fears about the Zika virus.
Prince Harry will now complete the two-day tour of the African country alone while his pregnant wife rests up with her mother, who is visiting Britain.
Officially, Harry was always supposed to make the trip alone but palace insiders say that it was intended to be a joint visit, according to Daily Mail.
Meghan, 37, is believed to have been told to avoid foreign trips that risk exposing her to the Zika virus.
An insider told the Sun: ‘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 travelling to a country with even the smallest Zika threat.
‘In the end it was agreed Harry would go it alone and Meghan could rest-up and spend some quality time with Doria, who is down in the UK visiting.’
Zika can cause microcephaly for children in the womb, causing babies to be born with abnormally small skulls.
