Prince Harry, Meghan visit mountain school in Morocco

ASNI, Morocco (AP) — Prince Harry and his pregnant wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, are visiting a school high up in Morocco's rugged Atlas Mountains.

Harry and Meghan landed in the mountain town of Asni on Sunday morning on a whirlwind official visit to Morocco. They arrived by helicopter from the capital of Rabat and were welcomed by pupils from a school run by a Moroccan foundation that emphasizes education for all.

The school provides education for girls from rural communities whose parents would not typically be able to afford secondary education.
