Following three days in Cape Town, Prince Harry has now travelled to Botswana as part of the 10-day royal tour.
Leaving Meghan and son Archie behind, the Duke has travelled solo for the latest leg of the tour, which will see him also visit Angola and Malawi where he will follow in the footsteps of Princess Diana with work on clearing land mines and HIV Awareness.
Harry’s schedule for today involves joining schoolchildren at the Chobe Forest Tree Reserve, Botswana, to plant trees.

The Duke will then visit a local project run by his charity Sentebale, which aims to help improve the mental health of young people affected by HIV.
He will then head to Chobe National Park, where he will dedicate an area of forest to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, which is intended as a passage for wildlife to expand the range of their habitats. The Duke will then depart for Angola.
The Sussex Royal Instagram account shared a picture of Harry planting trees today with the local school children.
The accompany captioned read: “What a welcome! The Duke of Sussex has kicked off the next leg of the royal tour by planting trees in Chobe National Park with 200 school children from local primary schools. The Duke planted a baobab, which are severely under threat across Africa, which will live for 1000 years!”
It continued: “The Duke was welcomed by his close friend Dr Mike Chase, Founder of Elephants Without Borders, who has dedicated his life to supporting Botswana’s people and elephants.
“‘If you look after nature, it will look after you’ – The Duke of Sussex.”
Harry’s trip to Botswana, which is where he enjoyed one of his first holidays with Meghan, follows a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Archie’s first-ever royal engagement.
