Prinz Harry in Angola

Es ist der fünfte Tag der Afrika-Reise der britischen Royals: Prinz Harry (35) inspizierte ein Minenfeld in Angola und trat dabei das Erbe seiner Mutter an. Vor 22 Jahren versuchte Lady Diana (†36) mit ihrem Besuch das Bewusstsein für Landminen zu steigern, die Bilder von ihr gingen damals um die Welt.

Prinz Harry sah das Erbe seiner Mutter in Angola

Der Palast veröffentlichte auf dem Instagramseite von "Royal Sussex" zu Harrys Besuch folgende Botschaft: "Auf den Spuren seiner Mutter, Prinzessin Diana, besuchte der Herzog von Sussex heute Morgen einen Abbauort in Dirico, Angola, um auf die Gefahr und Verbreitung von Landminen aufmerksam zu machen, die bis heute bestehen. Der Herzog schloss sich dem Halo Trust bei seiner Arbeit an, um den Bereich zu räumen und einen sicheren Zugang für die örtliche Gemeinde zu ermöglichen."

Es ist nach 2013 bereits Prinz Harrys zweiter Besuch eines Minenfelds in Angola. Wie seine Mutter Diana damals trug auch Harry bei seinem aktuellen Rundgang eine Schutzweste und einen Helm.

Following in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana, this morning The Duke of Sussex visited a de-mining site in Dirico, Angola, to raise awareness of the danger and prevalence of landmines that still exists today. The Duke joined @thehalotrust in their work to help clear the area to enable safe access for the local community. • “If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and unhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalVisitAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA

Weiter hieß es in einem anderen Post: "Der Herzog ist geehrt, einen Ort und eine Gemeinde zu besuchen, die für seine Mutter so besonders waren, und ihre unermüdliche Mission als Fürsprecherin für alle anzuerkennen, die ihrer Meinung nach ihre Stimme am meisten benötigten, auch wenn das Thema nicht allgemein beliebt war."

Im Laufe des Tages wird Harry genau die Stelle besuchen, an der seine Mutter damals spazieren ging - ein Ort, der heute eine lebendige Gemeinde mit mehreren Unis, Schulen und kleinen Unternehmen ist.
