Prince continues work of his mother by supporting minefield clearance in Angola
Months before her death in a Paris car crash, the striking image of Diana, Princess of Wales, wearing a protective visor and vest and walking through a live Angolan minefield drew global attention to the lethal scourge of landmines.
On Friday, Prince Harry put on similar attire as he helped set off a controlled explosion in a partially cleared Angolan minefield similar to the one visited by his mother 22 years ago.
Near the south-eastern town of Dirico, Harry walked into an area that was once an artillery base for anti-government forces, and who had mined the position in 2000 before retreating.
Praising the work of landmine clearance charity the Halo Trust, Harry called landmines an unhealed scar of war, adding: By clearing the landmines we can help this community find peace, and with peace comes opportunity.
Additionally, we can protect the diverse and unique wildlife that relies on the beautiful Cuito river that I slept beside last night.
The prince walked through dusty scrubland marked with signs bearing a skull and crossbones and the warning Danger, mines in English and Portuguese.
