Just months after welcoming Archie Harrison into their family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be heading to Africa again! The couple will reportedly honour the late Princess Diana’s legacy by visiting Angola, Malawi and South Africa for a humanitarian-focused royal tour, according to People.
While further details of the royal tour haven’t been released yet, fans will likely see one of their favourite royal duos wearing their hearts on their sleeves. Following in Diana’s footsteps comes naturally for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who share very similar passions for social justice and aid as People’s Princess.
Harry and Meghan will be working to expand Sentebale while in Malawi, People reports. The charitable organization, founded by the new dad in 2006, provides support for young people and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Malawi, Botswana and Lesotho.
Many royal watchers will remember one of Princess Diana’s most iconic photos, in which she walked across an active landmine area in Angola to raise awareness for the dangers. The Sussexes will perhaps meet with the HALO Trust, as Harry plans to do on June 17 when he’ll attend the Mine Clearance, Conservation and Economic Development in Angola event at Chatham House.
In 1997, Princess Diana worked with HALO Trust when she walked through a minefield in Angola. Shortly after she did so, the Ottawa Convention, which aims at eliminating landmines worldwide, was signed the same year.
Harry has also collaborated with HALO Trust before, having done so while visiting Mozambique and Angola in 2010 and 2013, respectively.
While it’s been reported baby Archie may accompany the couple on their tour, nothing has been confirmed yet. Since he will only be a few months old, it’s likely the bundle of joy will stay at home.
This will mark the second time the couple have visited the African continent this year. Just before their baby was born, Harry and Meghan went on a royal tour to Morocco, where they had an audience with King Mohammed VI, visited the town of Asni on the foothills of the High Atlas mountains and met with local grassroots organizations that help serve at-risk communities in the country.
