TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited to announce that they have been asked to carry out a tour to Southern Africa this autumn. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have requested a visit to South Africa 🇿🇦 as well as The Duke carrying out visits to Malawi 🇲🇼 and Angola 🇦🇴. His Royal Highness will also do a short working visit to Botswana 🇧🇼 en route to the other countries. The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the Commonwealth and beyond. This will be their first official tour as a family!
In 2006, Prince Harry jointly founded Sentebale, a charity helping to support children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.
Last week the prince gave his backing to a landmine clearing initiative to help rid Angola of 153 minefields – a cause previously championed by his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.
