The royal family of three is set to arrive in Cape Town, South Africa, on Sept. 23, and depart for the U.K. on Oct. 2.

The visit represents an opportunity for the Duke and Duchess to highlight many of the causes they have been involved with for many years; it will demonstrate a modern UK-Africa partnership in action.”

They will also visit Malawi and Angola during the family's trip, and will also undertake a "working visit" to Botswana.

Prince Harry will make a visit to Huambo and the same location where his mother, the late Princess Diana, was famously photographed visiting a de-mining site and visiting landmine victims.

Harry, who established his charity, Sentebale, in the African country of Lesotho in 2006, also included a piece of Botswana in Meghan's engagement ring.

Harry has also said in previous interviews that Africa will always have sentimental value to him because Africa is where he and Prince Charles and Prince William went to "get away from it all" after Diana's death in 1997.

the Duke now has a platform to be able to support young people across Africa in reaching their full potential.”

“The Duke of Sussex’s love for Africa is well known; he first visited the continent at the age of 13 and more than two decades later, the people, culture, wildlife, and resilient communities continue to inspire and motivate him every day,”.
