O príncipe Harry e a duquesa Meghan Markle farão uma viagem pela África para continuidade ao trabalho iniciado pela princesa Diana. A viagem tem como foco a comunidade local, liderança, direitos da mulher, saúde mental, combate a Aids e a preservação do meio ambiente, informou a conta oficial do casal no Instagram.

Segundo publicação feita hoje, o duque a duquesa de Sussex partem para a África em duas semanas e percorrerão vários países do sul do continente africano.

"O duque está orgulhoso de continuar o legado deixado por sua mãe com seu trabalho em Angola unindo-se à Halo Trust (uma ONG que atua na limpeza de escombros em áreas de guerras) novamente para libertar o mundo de minas terrestres", afirmou a página oficial.

Já a duquesa vai trabalhar em parceria com outras ONGs para o desenvolvimento feminino, como foco em saúde, educação, empreendedorismo e liderança.

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's upcoming tour to Africa! ? In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women's and girls' rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining 'Waves for Change' on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army's partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen's Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls' health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke's role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries ?
