Details Of Prince Harry’s Secret Trip To Botswana Have Been Revealed

The Duke of Sussex managed to take a private trip to Botswana this week to carry out a visit to Rhino Conservation Botswana. Harry, who was not joined by his wife, Meghan, is a patron of the organisation.

A Kensington Palace spokeswoman said: "The Duke of Sussex is on a private working trip to Botswana, to join the annual general meeting for Rhino Conservation Botswana in his capacity as patron. He attended the board meeting in Maun and an RCB community project in Xarakao village."

This is actually Harry’s second time to the country this year. He took a similar trip to this one back in January to find out more about how to safeguard the country’s population of both black and white rhinos.

It’s well known that Botswana holds a very special place in Harry’s heart. Not only has he completed a lot of charity work in the country, it’s where he famously whisked Meghan off for their third date in 2016.

The pair decided to get away from prying eyes by flying to the African country so that they could be totally alone.

During their first joint interview, following the news of their engagement last year, Harry spoke of this time.

"We camped out with each other under the stars," he said. "She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic. So then we were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to know each other.”

The couple also decided to celebrate the Duchess of Sussex’s 36th birthday this time last year in Botswana, and it’s the country where Harry actually sourced one of the diamonds in Meghan’s engagement ring.

There's no doubt the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be making many more trips over.
