The Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the Republic of Zimbabwe is the United Kingdom's foremost diplomatic representative in Zimbabwe, and in charge of the UK's diplomatic mission in Harare.

Zimbabwe (formerly the Republic of Rhodesia) became an independent nation in 1980 following the Lancaster House Agreement on 21 December 1979. Initially Zimbabwe was a member of the British Commonwealth so the UK's diplomatic representatives were High Commissioners. Zimbabwe withdrew from the Commonwealth in 2003, since when the UK's representatives have been Ambassadors.
