Prince Harry, 34, has much in common with his mother, Princess Diana, † 36. Like Lady Di, the 37-year-old Duchess Meghan's husband defends the interests of the weaker and less fortunate. As a passionate supporter of "The HALO Trust", a humanitarian organization working on mine clearance, Harry will talk about the vile traps in Angola next Monday (June 17) at an event in Africa in London. According to British media reports, Queen Elizabeth's 93-year-old grandson is planning a trip to the African state to continue the work of her deceased mother. She has been dedicated to mines all her life.
Prince Harry: Will he be going to Africa in the fall?
According to "Mirror," Prince William's 36-year-old brother is planning a trip to Africa in the fall. In addition to Angola, this trip will also include stops in Malawi, South Africa and Botswana. The tabloid reports that not only Duchess Meghan, but perhaps their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on May 6, will accompany him. Palace security experts are currently studying the possibility of traveling with a child.
The influence of Princess Diana on her son
"Harry has never hidden his mother's influence on him," said a palace insider to Mirror. In fact, the 34-year-old traveled to Angola in 2013 to get an idea of the situation. He saw with his own eyes the impact of anti-personnel mines, remnants of a bloody civil war from 1975 to 2002, that still affected the local population.
Make the world safer
It is said that Harry had thought for a long time that he would be there again for more security. It is now time to put this plan into action. The source continues: "He now wants to continue his mother's work and show his wife and son the places that have influenced him the most." It was not a matter of politics, it was always people, said Harry on the occasion of the International Mine Awareness Day in 2017. "She was able to use her effectiveness in the media to attract attention of people forgotten or ignored. "
According to the news agency "Reuters", 160 countries have signed a contract for the removal of mines. Twenty-seven of them have so far declared themselves free of traps.
