Prince Harry & # 39; wants to take Meghan and Archie on an Angolan journey to finish anti-land mine work that his mother Diana has started & # 39;
- Prince Harry is said to take Meghan Markle and their son Archie on a tour of African countries
- Harry wants to continue the legacy of his deceased mother of anti-land mine charity work in Angola during a six-month visit
- Malawi, South Africa and Botswana are also considered as possible destinations on the & # 39; posting route & # 39;
- Princess Diana visited Angola in 1997 to do charity work, just a few months before her death in a car accident in Paris
Prince Harry plans to travel to Africa with Meghan Markle and their new son Archie to complete the anti-land mining that Princess Diana started.
As part of the couple's fall tour, Harry travels to Angola to complete the legacy of his deceased mother for charity work for the HALO Trust.
Diana is famous in Angola in January 1997, just a few months before her tragic death due to a car accident in Paris in August of that year.
The six-month & # 39; posting & # 39; to Africa is expected to take place over the next two to three years and the couple will visit Malawi, South Africa and possibly Botswana to expand the work of its charity Sentebale.
Botawana, which Harry has previously described as his & # 39; second home & # 39 ;, is considered to be one of the likely stops in their itinerary, especially as it is a Commonwealth country, as the queen turned her grandson into a of his youth ambassadors and has him as an important proponent of her legacy.

Royal courtiers would have drawn up plans for the royal & # 39; rock stars & # 39; send abroad for two to three years, combining their job as Commonwealth ambassadors with charity work and playing a role in promoting Britain.
It said the proposal would give them a break from the divisions that have occurred between Harry and his brother William over the past few months, while the global appeal of the Sussexes is & # 39; grasped & # 39 ;.
The royal couple is expected to travel together for at least part of the African tour, but Buckingham Palace assistants are investigating whether Angola is safe enough for the baby prince and his mother to visit.
Harry has visited Angola in the past. In 2013 he traveled to the Cuando Cubango province to experience the impact of landmines in the region.
Sentebale, the children's charity that Prince Harry founded in 2006 after his year in Lesotho, is extending his AIDS prevention program to Malawi.
Sussexes consultants would work on the & # 39; customized & # 39; African role of Harry and Meghan with the help of Sir David Manning, a former US ambassador, and Lord Geidt, the Queen's former private secretary who presides over the Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

One of the lasting images of the work of Princess Diana in Africa is that she was wearing a protective visor and green vest while walking through a minefield.
During her visit, Diana helped to draw attention to the issue of landmines that were with Sandra Tigica – who at the time was 13 years old and had one of her legs blown off by a mine.
It also exploded a land mine for international reporters and TV crews to emphasize the destructive power of the explosive device.
In 2017 on the International Mine Awareness Day, Harry said his mother's work on banning landmines in the last months of her life was not universally popular.
Harry added, "She knew she had a big spotlight to shine, and she used it to draw attention to the people who had forgotten others, were ignored, or were too scared to support."
Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday that Harry will attend a conference on landmines in London prior to the sabbatical in Africa.
On Monday, Harry will attend a Chatham House Africa Program event on & # 39; Mine Clearance, Conservation and Economic Development in Angola & # 39 ;.
The Angolan government should provide £ 44 million in funding to clear landmines in two national parks in the country.
