Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, have announced on their Instagram account some of the items for their itinerary during their upcoming tour of Southern Africa.
Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment.
They will be meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and will also join the ‘Waves for Change’ movement on Monwabisi Beach during their visit. This is a charity that focuses on mental health, something about which Prince Harry is passionate.
The Duke will also continue his mother’s work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust in an effort to remove landmines from the area. They will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities.
He will also deliver a new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed in consultation with governments of Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta.
The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women’s and girls’ health, education, entrepreneurship and leadership.
