On Monday, almost exactly one month after Prince Harry traveled to Lesotho to attend the opening of a new school in the South African nation, Kensington Palace released two new photos from the trip. Both pictures show Harry playing with brightly colored balloons with local children. According to the photos' captions, the Duke of Sussex made the trip to Lesotho as part of his work with Sentebale, the charity he co-founded with Lesotho's Prince Seeiso in 2006, aimed at bettering the lives of children and young people living with HIV/AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana.
Chris Jackson, royal photographer for Getty Images, also shared a new photo from the June trip on his Instagram page on Monday. "As always Prince Harry, not one to stand by and watch, got stuck in as the children from the Mamohato Children's Centre played games as part of a programme that educates and helps empower them to take control of their future," Jackson captioned his shot, which shows an excited-looking Harry running and playing with a group of kids.
The palace unveiled the photos on the same day that Prince Harry traveled to Amsterdam for the International Aids Conference to continue his work as a representative of Sentebale. As seen in additional photos shared on the royal Twitter account, Harry is at the conference to convene with young activists to discuss ways to keep those living with HIV/AIDS informed of their diagnoses and to put an end to the spread of HIV. These discussions are part of Sentebale's "Let Youth Lead" initiative, which "provides young people with a platform to voice the challenges of youth living with HIV and those affected by the epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa," in hopes of "[engaging] policymakers to drive positive change in HIV interventions that better support this generation," according to the organization's website.
