Why Prince Harry won’t recreate Princess Diana’s iconic landmine photo during Africa tour – The Sun

PRINCE Harry won’t recreate Princess Diana’s iconic photo walking through a minefield on his Africa tour – as the area is now a street filled with shops and schools.

Princess Diana famously walked through an area being cleared of landmines in Huambo, Angola, a few months before her death in 1997.

The image went on to become one of the most iconic photos of the late princess, and Prince Harry is travelling to the exact spot where it was taken.

The 34-year-old will visit Angola as part of his 10-day tour of the region, accompanied by Meghan Markle, 38, and four-month-old Archie.

The Duke of Sussex will get to follow in his mum’s footsteps by remote-detonating a landmine, before visiting the land Princess Diana helped de-mine.

But the dad-of-one won’t get to recreate the image the late Princess made famous, as the area is now a street filled with shops, schools and houses.

Instead he will see the legacy his mother left behind in her work to rid the country of landmines, with the once bomb-ridden landscape now a typical street.

Sharing news of their upcoming tour on their Instagram page, @Sussexroyal, a post said: "The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines."

Prince Harry will head to Angola on day three of his ten-day trip, and also spend time de-mining a new site, in Dirico, with same charity Princess Diana worked with, The HALO Trust.

Prince Harry has worked with the trust de-mining zones before, visiting Mozambique in 2010 and spending two days working on landmine clearance and detonating mines.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touch down in Cape Town on September 23, with their Instagram page saying they were "excited" to embark on their first official tour as a family.

The couple have different schedules on the tour, with Meghan staying in South Africa while Prince Harry heads solo to Botswana, Angola and Malawi, before re-joining his wife.

His jam-packed schedule includes meetings with Archbishop
Desmond Tutu and Angolan President, João Lourenço, as well as visiting
maternity hospitals and Liwonde National Park.
