Proof That Prince Harry Is More Like His Mother Than Prince William

For weeks now, there has been constant talk about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s upcoming trip to Africa. In the beginning, fans were speculating as to if the trip would actually happen, then there was talk about whether or not they would bring along baby Archie.

Now that we have gotten confirmation that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are, in fact, going to Africa and that they do intend to bring along their new son, everyone is very interested about the work that they will be doing while they are there.

According to Town and Country Magazine, the royal couple is planning to visit Malawi, Botswana, and Angolo this autumn, reportedly spending up to six months on the tour.

Given that one of the major things they will be doing on their trip is taking over the humanitarian work that Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, did, we have to wonder if this is proof that Prince Harry is more like his late mother than his older brother, Prince William. Let’s see.

We can only imagine how much Meghan and Harry are looking forward to spending time in Botswana, as this is a place that is truly near and dear to their hearts.

It was early on in their relationship that they spent time there, and according to Harry, they “camped out together under the stars” and “spent the time getting to know each other.”

There is no doubt that this was an experience that neither of them will ever forget and visiting Botswana will certainly be special for them.

What will Meghan and Harry be doing in Africa?

The question on the mind’s of many royal fans is what, exactly will Meghan and Harry be doing while they are in Africa? Well, it turns out that they will be doing a lot of the same work as Princess Diana.

When they visit Malawi, the Duke and Duchess will be lending their support to Sentebale, a charity that Harry co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. The organization supports young children who are affected by HIV and AIDS and was started over a decade ago in 2006.

Is that all they have planned?

Most definitely not! When the couple gets to Angola, they will be paying tribute to Diana in the most special way, by continuing her work with the HALO trust. It is here in Angola that Meghan and Harry will be working to remove landmines, just like the late princess did shortly before her death.

Known for her extensive humanitarian work, Diana emphasized just how important it was to safely remove existing landmines when she walked through an active minefield in 1997. Before they begin the work, however, Harry is set to attend a conference on landmine clearance.

According to UK’s The Sun, the Palace said that “The presence of landmines and remnants of the civil war render large areas of the country unsafe”. This work was very important to Diana, and now Harry and Meghan will be carrying on her legacy. 

Does this prove that Harry is more like Princess Diana than William?

The upcoming trip to Africa does prove that Harry is slightly more like Diana than his brother. Just like his mother, Harry has a passion for humanitarian work, and he makes it one of his main focuses when carrying out royal duties.

People can report that a source close to the royal family says that Harry has “so much of Diana in him” and this is just one of the many ways that the younger prince is honoring his beloved mother.

According to the source, Harry is likely to “follow in her footsteps” and judging from the amazing work that he does, we have to agree.
