Prince William and Prince Harry to visit South Africa


Prince William and Prince Harry will visit Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa from Monday 14th to Saturday 19th June 2010.


Prince William and Prince Harry will visit Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa from Monday 14th to Saturday 19th June 2010.    


The visit will be the first time that The Princes have carried out joint engagements overseas.


The Princes’ visit to South Africa is on behalf of The Football Association, of which Prince William is President, in support of The FA’s Bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Prince William and Prince Harry will join a reception to celebrate the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, where they will meet members of the FIFA Executive Committee. The Princes will attend the match between England and Algeria.


The visits to Botswana and Lesotho are on behalf of Tusk Trust and Sentebale, of which Prince William and Prince Harry are respectively Patrons.  In Botswana, The Princes will see at first hand some of Tusk Trust’s visionary conservation and humanitarian work. This year represents Tusk’s 20th anniversary year.  In Lesotho, The Princes will visit projects supported by Sentebale, the charity which Prince Harry founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to support the Mountain Kingdom’s vulnerable children and orphans.


The visits will allow Prince William and Prince Harry to show the charities’ work to one another and to bring a spotlight on many inspirational projects.  The visits to all three countries will be in support of The Princes’ joint interests in supporting disadvantaged young people and sustainable development.


Charlie Mayhew, Chief Executive, Tusk Trust said:


“It is a huge honour for Tusk to be given a chance to host both Prince William, our Patron, and Prince Harry in Botswana. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, the visit provides an exciting opportunity to illustrate the success of initiatives helped by the charity and highlight how education, sustainable development and sport can all play a role in ensuring the long term preservation of Africa's wildlife.”
