Royals: Prince Harry to visit Lesotho and SA

2013-02-06 00:00

LONDON — Britain’s Prince Harry will visit Lesotho and South Africa at the end of the month to check on the progress of his charity.

The prince (28) set up the Sentebale organisation with Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso in 2006, in memory of both their mothers.

Harry, a captain in the British Army who has recently returned from a tour of active duty in Afghanistan, will make the visit while on leave from the forces.

He will spend two days in Lesotho visiting projects focused on children affected by HIV/Aids.

In South Africa, he will give a speech at a gala fundraising dinner in Johannesburg.

He will also visit the Kananelo centre for the deaf and the Reitumetse Church Project, which supplies water and housing for underprivileged people.

In 2010, Harry made a visit to Lesotho with his brother, Prince William.

Harry has been in the news lately after the screening of a film made during his service in Afghanistan, where he was the co-pilot-gunner of an attack helicopter.

In it, he told interviewers that he enjoys his role and is good at it because he likes playing video games. He admitted that he had killed enemy combatants.
