Prince Harry to continue Princess Diana’s legacy with charity work from new home in Canada


Prince Harry to continue Princess Diana’s
legacy with charity work from new home in Canada.PRINCE HARRY is due to focus on a number
of charity projects as part of his new role within the Royal Family.Touching down in Canada
to reunite with his wife, Meghan, and son, Archie, Harry will redirect his attentions
towards projects which honour his late mother Princess Diana. The Duke of Sussex, who was 12 years old when
his mother died, is set to stage a number of charity events across North America. These events will tackle the issue of Aids,
through his charity Sentebale, which also supports the mental health and well-being
of children who are affected by HIV.Speaking to the Evening Standard, chairman of Sentebale
Johnny Hornby, said: “The Duke is a global figure and HIV is a challenge for the world
to try to help solve.“We know the Duke has the ability to challenge the stigma that surrounds
HIV and shine a light on these issues, whichever side of the pond he finds himself on.”Harry
was recently in attendance at a charity gala for Sentebale, which he established in 2006
with close friend Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.The pair founded the charity, whose name means
‘forget me not’, in remembrance of their mothers, who were both involved in charity
work.At the event, Harry spoke of his decision to “step my family back” from life as
senior members of the Royal Family.He said: “It was so many months of talks after so
many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right,
but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.“What I want to make clear
is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you.“I hope that
helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all
I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.“I
was born into this life, and it is a great honour to serve my country and the Queen.”The
Duke also spoke of how members of the charity had taken him “under your wing” after
the death of his mother.Harry stated how in this new phase of his life, he would continue
to support the “causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.”He
added: “Together, you have given me an education about living. And this role has taught me more about what
is right and just than I could have ever imagined.“We are taking a leap of faith thank you for giving
me the courage to take this next step.”As part of the new agreement established by the
Duke of Sussex and the Queen, Harry and Meghan will no longer carry out engagements for the
monarch.They have also chosen not to use the title HRH, instead being referred to as Harry,
Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The couple will split their time between Canada
and the UK, raising their son, Archie, in both countries.The Sussexes have also stated
their wish to pay back the sum spent on their Frogmore Cottage home, gifted to them by the
Queen, to the Sovereign Grant.In a statement, the Queen said: “Following many months of
conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a
constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family.“Harry, Meghan
and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.Her Majesty added: “I want
to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and
beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.”The
Sussexes are expected to have their Canadian residence in Vancouver Island, close by to
where Harry touched down at Victoria Airport.
