Britain's Prince Harry is due to visit Lesotho and South Africa on behalf of his charity Sentebale.
The 28-year-old royal - who recently returned from Afghanistan after fighting on the frontline for 20 weeks - will leave at the end of February for the three-day trip and the visit will begin with two days of private visits to Sentebale programmes around Lesotho.
On the final day he will carry out public engagements in the Maseru district before attending the Sentebale gala dinner in Johannesburg.
Harry will deliver a speech at the gala and also attend a reception for selected guests.
The dinner will mark the launch of the charity's major fundraising drive to build a permanent centre for children and young people.
Harry set up Sentebale to support orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho, and his last visit to the country 2010 he went to the country with brother Prince William to show him the work that was being done.
The prince's commitment to Lesotho - a land-locked country within South Africa - began in 2004 when he spent part of his gap year in the country, working with various charities and organisations.
