The Duke of Sussex attended a fundraising concert for Sentebale in the stunning grounds of Hampton Court Palace. @Sentebale was founded by The Duke of Sussex and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso in 2006 to support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV and AIDS in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi. The charity is one way in which both Princes’ are able to keep their mothers’ legacy alive. Sentebale means “Forget me not” in Sesotho.
Last night’s concert featured singer-songwriter Rita Ora and spoken word poet George the Poet (George Mpanga), and many other talented artists. Thousands came together in a celebration of African and Western culture to help raise awareness of Sentebale’s work in supporting children and young people in southern Africa affected by HIV.
In the last 20 years, attitudes have changed as more people understand that the HIV virus is no longer a death sentence, yet there is still far too much stigma, discrimination, and lack of education surrounding the illness. Many people are afraid to access life-saving treatment because they fear what others will think.
Thousands of children in southern Africa are living in incredibly challenging circumstances. Sentebale’s programmes not only ensure their basic needs – love, security and an education – are being met, but also provides them with the educational and psychosocial support they deserve.
Since it was founded @Sentebale has supported hundreds of thousands of young people through activities including monthly clubs at local healthcare facilities and week-long residential camps.
Support from the concert goes to the children of Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi, to help free the next generation of HIV by not letting stigma thrive off silence.

Made by sports:
The Duke of Sussex attended the launch of Made by Sport, a new campaign which champions the power of sport to change the lives of young people.
Alongside British boxing legends Anthony Joshua and Nicola Adams, The Duke of Sussex met a number of sports community coaches from across the UK who play an invaluable role in inspiring future generations and giving young people the focus, skills and support they need.
Bringing together over 60 organisations already working in the sports sector, @_madebysport aims to reach thousands of young people in the most disadvantaged communities across the UK through schools, clubs and organisations.
This afternoon, The Duke spoke with young people about why sport matters to them and how it is changing, and sometimes even saving, lives. One of these was 15 year old Dantaye, who explained how getting involved with boxing turned his life around, keeping him away from the influence of knife crime and helping him focus on his future.
Through his work on sport for social good over the last 10 years, The Duke has seen first-hand how sport can positively impact people’s mental fitness and the role it can play in helping change young people’s lives.
Giving them purpose, a safe space with community, core values and confidence to excel in life.
The Duke strongly believes that the investment of time and resources in youth programs (specifically with sport) is essential in helping save on funding, save lives and create stronger communities.
Made by sport launch: Made By Sport is a four year campaign championing the power of sport to change lives and raising vital funds for organisations that are using sport to transform the lives of young people in the UK. The campaign is delivered in collaboration the Sport For Development Coalition, a movement made up of over 60 charitable organisations and funders with a reach in to thousands of schools, communities, clubs and organisations.
The Duke of Sussex has had a longstanding connection to The Ghurkas and the people of Nepal beginning at a very young age.
Today His Royal Highness held an audience with Nepal’s Prime Minister, KP Sharma Oli, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen. This is the first visit to the UK by a Nepali Prime Minister in 19 years.
The Duke has previously met KP Sharma Oli, on his first official visit to Nepal in March 2016, a country he had always longed to visit.
At the time, Nepal was recovering from a major earthquake – rural villages had been torn apart leaving many families displaced, with heritage sites in Kathmandu severely damaged. Despite this tragedy, The Duke was moved by the remarkable spirit, resilience and warmth of the Nepalese, as seen in the photos from his visit.
The Duke explored Nepal’s stunning natural beauty, trekking through a National Park, experiencing the Hindu Festival of Colour in the Himalayan village of Okhari and staying with a local family in Leorani village.
During the visit, HRH also met The Royal Gurkha Rifles at the British Gurkha Camp in Pokhara, whom are a unique unit of soldiers in the British Army recruited from Nepal. The Duke has a particularly close bond to The Gurkha’s, having served with The 1st Battalion in Afghanistan in 2007/2008.
The Gurkha’s have taken part in operations in Kosovo, Bosnia, East Timor, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Australia and Iraq and share a 203 year relationship with the UK.
At the end of his 2016 visit, The Duke joined Team Rubicon volunteers to help a remote village whose community had been destroyed in the earthquake. @Teamrubiconuk unites the skills and expertise of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams in the aftermath of natural disasters. The Duke helped with the rebuild of the local school, giving children a safe space to go to school and study before the monsoon season arrived.
The Duke of Sussex celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth by attending a Garden Party at Marlborough House in his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. The Duke of Sussex meets winners of the Innovation for Sustainable Development Awards. These young people are taking action where they see a need for progress – by developing solutions to overcome challenges in areas including human rights, women’s empowerment & climate change.
