Harry on surprise trip to Mozambique to promote wildlife conservation

The Duke of Sussex made a solo visit to Mozambique to highlight wildlife conservation in the southern African country.

Harry traveled from California without the Duchess of Sussex for the short break earlier this week in her capacity as chairman of African Parks.

The Duke’s spokesman said Harry was hosting and co-hosting a group of US officials, conservationists and philanthropists as they visited wildlife and wilderness protected areas.

Harry was shown – in images that surfaced on Twitter – casually dressed in a cap, polo shirt, shorts and trainers in the coastal town of Vilanculos.

The popular resort is the gateway to the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago, renowned for their idyllic beaches and diverse marine wildlife.

In 2010, Harry traveled to Mozambique to visit a minefield with the Halo Trust, while wearing a visor and body armor in scenes reminiscent of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

African Parks is one of the few private sponsorships Harry retained when he stepped down as senior royal in 2020.

He has worked with the charity since 2016, where he helped them complete the relocation of 500 elephants to Malawi.

The non-profit conservation organization manages around 20 national parks in partnership with governments and local communities, in nearly a dozen countries including Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and Chad.

Harry is gearing up for a whirlwind return to the UK in early September with Meghan, when the pair prepare to attend the One Young World Summit in Manchester and the WellChild Awards in London.

They will also travel to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event.

The Royal Family are preparing for Harry’s next tell-all book, which he has sworn will be an “accurate and entirely truthful” account of his life.
