Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going on a Royal Tour later this year. The royal couple will be traveling to Angola, Malawi, and South Africa to charities that matter deeply to Harry and include a nod to his late mother Princess Diana. Meghan and Harry have not yet confirmed the tour dates.
Princess Diana’s humanitarian work
Princess Diana walked through one of Angola’s active minefields in 1997. She has been credited with raising awareness for an international treaty banning their use. Prince Harry has continued to champion her work such as by visiting Angola in 2013 for a mine clearing operation. There are rumors he will continue her legacy during the visit with Meghan.
The Royals plan to visit Malawi and expanding the reach of the charity
In Malawi, the Duke and Duchess are expecting to expand the reach of their charity Sentebale. It supports vulnerable children affected by the HIV epidemic in the country as well as in Botswana and Lesotho. In Angola, they will focus on the ongoing issue with landmines. They are also expecting to visit South Africa.
Prince Harry made a similar trip with the organization in Mozambique in 2010. Per ITV the Duke of Sussex will attend a conference in London about landmine removal in Angola next week.
Tour dates not confirmed
ITV simply reported that the trip would take place “later this year,” but royal correspondent Roya Nikkah of The Sunday Times previously reported that the visit is planned for October. Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror said the trip would be an “autumn tour.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex went on their last royal tour in October 2018.
