Prince Harry's overseas visits 2015

Published 18 August 2015

Prince Harry will undertake official visits to the USA, South Africa and Lesotho later this year.

His Royal Highness will visit Washington DC at the end of October to attend events connected to the Orlando 2016 Invictus Games.

He will then visit South Africa and Lesotho from 26th November to 4th December. The visit to Lesotho is on behalf of his charity Sentebale, where he will officially open their Mamohato Children’s Centre. The newly-built Mamohato Children’s Centre is the flagship facility to serve all of Sentebale's work with vulnerable children in Lesotho, and will specifically enable Sentebale to support thousands more children living with HIV.

Prince Harry's visit to South Africa is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to carry out a programme of engagements on behalf of HM Government. 

Judith Macgregor, British High Commissioner to South Africa, said: "I am delighted to be welcoming Prince Harry on an official visit to South Africa and Lesotho later this year. The visit will showcase the wide range of co-operation between our countries as well as offer an excellent platform to further develop the partnerships between the UK and South Africa and Lesotho."

Further details on each of these visits will be provided in due course.

Prince Harry is currently in Southern Africa privately working on front-line conservation projects. He is due to return in mid-September. On his return to the UK he will work as a volunteer with the Personnel Recovery Unit of London District, where he will assist soldiers with their rehabilitation after being wounded or injured in service. He will also continue a programme of Royal and charitable duties, including through his role as Honorary President of the Rugby World Cup 2015.
