Prince Harry is set to return to Africa for an official tour. The 31-year-old, who spent the summer carrying out conservation work in Africa, will arrive for a week-long tour of Lesotho and South Africa on 26 November.

The Prince will then travel to Cape Town, where he will play in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup – the charity’s annual flagship fundraising event – at Val de Vie on Saturday 28 November.
During his visit to South Africa, Prince Harry will learn more about social issues facing young people in the area and the work being done to address them.
He will meet with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu before carrying out engagements at a youth centre and a project which uses sport to engage with young people on issues such as life skills, gender equality and HIV awareness.
