When the Duke of Sussex made an unannounced trip to Africa on Wednesday, royal observers were taken aback.
Following the Prince’s arrival in Vilankulos, Mozambique, Eric Morier-Genoud posted a picture of Harry at the airport on Twitter.
The father of two had a vague explanation for his visit, but he has a long history with and affection for Africa, where he has participated in numerous charitable endeavors.
The Duke was photographed sporting a cap, a shirt, and a pair of shorts, and it’s assumed that he traveled to several tourist attractions with some friends.
Last month, the Prince made an impactful speech to the UN, in which he stated: “I’ve always found hope on the African continent ever since my first trip there when I was 13 years old. In fact, it has been my lifeline for the majority of my life. It’s where I felt the closest to my mother, where I went for comfort after she passed away, and where I realized my wife was my soul mate.”
For the first time since the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this summer, the Sussexes will visit the United Kingdom once more next month, it was announced earlier this week.
The UK visit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was announced on Monday. The first week of September will see the couple return to Britain, where they will also travel to Germany.
“Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September,” a spokesperson for the couple said.
On September 5, the couple will fly to Manchester for the One Young World Summit, a gathering of young leaders from more than 190 nations.
Along with others like Jamie Oliver, Sir Richard Branson, and Justin Trudeau, the Duchess of Sussex serves as a counsellor for the organization.
Before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 8, they will travel to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event. Archie and Lilibet, the couple’s two young children, may or may not accompany them at this time.
