Prince Harry marked his return to royal duty today (Wednesday) visiting his African charity, Sentebale. The third-in-line to the throne visited two group homes in the African nation of Lesotho which care for orphaned children and those with disabilities. During his visits to the Kananelo Centre for the deaf and the St Bernadette's Centre for the blind, Harry learned signed language from the children, baked cakes, and participated in a dance with the children, USA Today reports.
Following his visit to the Sentebale facilities, the 28-year-old prince traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa. It's there where he attended a gala to mark the launch of Sentebale’s fundraising campaign which will raise capital to build the first permanent Mamohato Centre for children and young people. "It will provide leading psychosocial care and peer mentoring for children and young people infected with or affected by HIV – removing the stigma attached to the disease, inspiring confidence, self-reliance and most importantly making a marked improvement in these young people’s quality of life," Sentebale's website reads.
Prince Harry is in Africa for three days -- having touched down on Tuesday. His mission while there is to help raise awareness and funds for his charity which funds programs for vulnerable children of the African nation so they can get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.
Prince Harry founded Sentebale with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. He was also on hand for today's visit.
Today's engagement was the first for Prince Harry since he returned from Afghanistan in late January.
