Other activities of the tour include highlighting wildlife conservation efforts in Botswana and raising awareness about the dangers of landmines in Angola. 

The latter is an inherited passion project from Princess Diana, and Prince Harry is determined to keep up with his mother's legacy until he eradicates all landmine fields in Angola.

On September 1st, the Duke in a statement to his joint Instagram account with Markle shared a photo collage highlighting the beauty of Africa. He stated he could not wait to meet everyone, and he gets to do that today, with his wife, and son.
