Prince Harry in Africa – level 3

04-01-2017 15:00

Prince Harry admits that his role as a member of the royal family was difficult for him when his mother Princess Diana died in 1997.

He wanted to bury his head in the sand, but now he is following in her footsteps and says that he is lucky to be in a position to make a difference.

He opened up in a documentary about how Africa changed his life forever when he went to Botswana in 1997 and he fell in love with Africa. To him, Africa is an escape and he can use his name and position for good over there.

In Lesotho, Prince Harry co-founded Sentebale, a charity that helps young people who are affected by HIV and AIDS. He explained that the young people need the medication to live, but furthermore, the organisation provides education and empowerment to help them make decisions, which are all things that they need for improved quality of life.

Difficult words: bury one’s head in the sand (ignore something), empowerment (support, assistance).
