Harry travelled to England’s East Midlands region where he followed in the footsteps of his late mother Princess Diana in viewing the progress being made at the Leicestershire Aids Support Service. The Princess of Wales first paid a visit to the charity back in 1991 to launch a “panel of purses,” which commemorated those who died from the deadly autoimmune disease.

Tuesday’s visit to the organization included a look at the handmade panel and saw him unveil a commemorative plaque in honour of the charity’s 30th anniversary.

The ginger royal also learned about the “Yes You Can” and “I Have A Dream” programs at Hamilton Leicester College – and their initiatives to empower primary students.

Harry made a third stop at the Pink Lizard community centre. There, he enjoyed showing off his soccer skills for the eager crowd of young royal watchers.
