Prince Harry has had an extremely busy week, comprised of several secret engagements.

On June 11, Harry welcomed the Prime Minister of Nepal at his former residence, Kensington Palace. And then, having been heckled onstage at the Sentebale Audi Concert at Hampton Court Palace, where he appeared alongside Rita Ora, Prince Harry spent the following day conducting private meetings.

Royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted news of the secret engagements. “A busy Thursday behind the scenes for Prince Harry,” he wrote. “The duke was in Southwark, London for a @WeAreInvictus board meeting this morning before an appointment much closer to home — receiving CEO of @TheRFL Ralph Rimmer at Windsor Castle in the afternoon.”

Harry, of course, set up the Invictus Games, and regularly attends events and engagements related to the foundation.

Last night, 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.

Prince Harry recently welcomed his first child—Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor—with wife Meghan Markle. While Harry and Meghan made a chic appearance at Trooping the Colour to celebrate the queen’s second birthday, baby Archie didn’t, which is understandable considering that the little royal is still only a few weeks old.
