Prince Harry is set to take Meghan Markle to Africa in October.
The 32-year-old royal has been dating the ‘Suits’ actress since last year, and according to the Daily Mail newspaper they will travel together to southern Africa later this year to take part in Harry’s charity projects in the country of Lesotho.
Prince Harry has taken part in charity work in the country for over a decade, after taking a gap year to the nation in 2004 and setting up the charity Sentebale in 2006, with the help of Lesotho royal Prince Seeiso.
According to their website, Sentebale aims to help “the most vulnerable children in Lesotho and Botswana get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.”
The website continues: “Sentebale works with local grassroots organisations to help these children – the victims of extreme poverty and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Together, we’re making a big difference to these children’s lives. We can do even more with your help.”
However, fans of the royal and his 35-year-old girlfriend won’t be able to find updates on their trip on Meghan’s lifestyle blog The Tig – which she set up in 2014 – as she decided on Friday (07.04.17) to shut it down.
She wrote in her final post: “After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig. What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything (sic).”
