Hopefully the British media will give this tour some notice.

You'll be lucky, Anne won't be making on DM headlines.

I thought this visit to Africa was a working visit for her role as president of the Commonwealth Agricultural Society as opposed to a Jubilee visit.

According to the engagements list, it's for both reasons.

I've got a book on her on hold at the library. It's the only book about her they have, and it's the only copy too! It was written in 1987, when she became Princess Royal. It's called Anne: The Working Princess.

I just checked both the Royal homepages and the Zambia newspapers. Nothing beyond Anne's arrival and a visit she made to Kenneth Kaunda. :( Not even a latest Royal Image at royal.gov.uk.

Her engagements in Zambia have been mentioned in the court circular, all have been in her capacity as President of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.

Zambia does have quite a bit of things happening just now. I just hoped for any coverage. With the funeral of the former first lady, I understand why not.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE: The Princess Royal, President, Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, this morning attended the Annual Conference at the Royal Livingstone Hotel, Mosi-Oa-Tunya Road, Livingstone, Zambia.

Her Royal Highness this afternoon visited Livingstone War Memorial and laid a wreath.

The Princess Royal, President, Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, later attended the Annual Conference at the Royal Livingstone Hotel.

Her Royal Highness, President, Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, this evening attended a Conference Dinner at the Royal Livingstone Hotel.

I don't think a trip focusing on agriculture will bring much coverage.

Agriculture is not that dull. It keeps people from starving. And I tend to ask, why would the Zambian press not snap a photo or two? Zambia is about the size of Texas in the US. Zambia has half the population of Texas. I bet if Anne visited Texas to talk about cows and feed crops some paper would take her picture. Yes, I know, different cultures and different countries.

Nice job PssKatie! She stepped into a tough situation with the funeral upcoming. Lovely outfit - I love the pearl set and she has added a golden brooch. THANKS!

Love the beige dress with the pink floral pattern! Pink always looks good on an older woman like Anne. I don't like the hat, though. I think it's too big and out of proportion to her head. Also it's kind of lopsided.
