Princess Diana heartbreak: Why Harry won't replicate his mother's iconic African photo

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently getting ready for their 10-day tour of Southern Africa. The tour will take place from Monday 23 September to Wednesday 4 October. The bizarre, terrifying thing Meghan Markle’s new trustee has kept The heartwarming photos Meghan Markle chose for her anniversary Last week, Buckingham Palace released details of their itinerary with Harry going on a few solo engagements while Meghan remains with their baby, Archie Harrison. The Duke of Sussex will visit Botswana as well as travelling to Angola and Malawi. However, his trip to Angola will be more poignant to the Duke compared to his other visits. His mother, Princess Diana visited Huambo in 1997 where she was famously snapped walking through a minefield as part of her work with the HALO Trust. However, Harry will miss out on this iconic moment. Back in 1997, the area was a dangerous minefield but now it is a busy street with schools, shops and houses. The HALO Trust have since tweeted a photo in 2017 of the iconic road that Diana walked down to show the benefits of de-mining. During a Chatham House Africa Programme event on ‘Mine Clearance, Conservation, and Economic Development in Angola’ in June, Harry made a speech about his mother’s impact on the region.

While in the area, the Duke will have the opportunity to remotely detonate a mine and meet members of the community. Harry also celebrated another important cause close to his heart this week.

He also helped raise money on the trading floor for the Foundation during the annual BGC Charity Day. He was joined by his new press secretary Fiona Mcilwham. It is unclear how many of the official visits Archie will attend during the couples’ Africa tour. But first the couple will attend a workshop which teaches children about their rights and provides self-defence classes. They’ll then tour the District Six Museum, a memorial to the 60,000 residents forced from their homes in the area during apartheid on the 1970s. They’ll learn about the efforts being made to reunite families separated by the regime, and join a community cooking activity with former District Six residents.
