Kensington Palace has announced that Prince Harry will head overseas later this year to continue the incredible work of his various charities.
First stop for the 30-year-old royal is Washington D.C, where he will attend promotional events for the Invictus Games, which will be held in Orlando next year.
The Invictus Games Foundation, to which Prince Harry is a Patron, is an international event designed to celebrate the achievements of servicemen.
From November 26th to December 4th The Queen’s grandson will then head to South Africa and Lesotho.
Harry will visit Lesotho, a small country in Southern Africa, on behalf of his charity Sentebale where he will open the newly-built Mamohato Children’s Centre, a facility to help kids living with HIV.
The young Prince’s work with people suffering from HIV is one that is close his heart and reminiscent of Princess Diana’s courageous work in that field.
Famously, Diana was the first member of the royal family to come into contact with a person who had AIDS and, at a time when people believed the illness could be contracted by casual contact, she held the hands of patients.
Princess Di is considered to be responsible for breaking down the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and now Prince Harry is touchingly continuing this inspiring legacy.
The fifth-in-line to the throne is currently in Africa privately working of conservation projects but will return mid-September before jumping straight into volunteer work for the Personnel Recovery unit.
