'King Harry' hailed as 'leader not follower' as he leaves Meghan at home for low-key trip

5 mins read

They told People magazine: “[The Duke is] welcoming and co-hosting a group of US officials, conservationists and philanthropists as they tour protected wildlife and nature areas.”

Harry travelled to Mozambique as the President of African Parks, a role he has been holding since 2017.

Among the US officials he co-hosted were a delegation of congressmen led by Delaware Senator Chris Coons, royal biographer Omid Scobie tweeted.

While in Vilankulos, a coastal town part of the Inhambane Province, the delegation learned about conservation efforts at the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park – the first marine reserve to fall under the management of African Parks.

The new details sparked a wave of support for the Duke by some of his fans.

Taking to Twitter, @patouart said: “Well done Prince Harry.”

@silverl37758042 hailed the Duke saying: “Harry is the leader, not a follower.”

Fan of the Sussexes @fafabanane added: “Continuing a life of service. As he said service is universal.”

These two fans repeated a message shared by Meghan and Prince Harry in a brief statement in February 2021.

Their announcement, dating back to February last year, addressed their intention to continue their acts of service around the world despite no longer being working members of the Firm.

The pair, Meghan and Harry’s office said at the time, “remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.”


The statement added: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

This announcement was shared shortly after Buckingham Palace revealed the Duke and Duchess had communicated they would not return to the royal fold one year after stepping down as working royals.

The palace’s statement read: “Following conversations with the Duke, the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the Royal Family it is not possible to continue with responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.”

As a consequence of their decision, Meghan and Harry had to return their honorary military titles and royal patronages to the sovereign.

On the other hand, they retained their links with organisations they founded or without previous links to the monarchy.

Meghan remained a patron of animal charity Mayhew until earlier this year and continues to support Smart Works, an organisation helping women trying to rejoin the workforce.

The Duke continues to work relentlessly with the organisation he co-founded, such as Sentebale and the Invictus Games.

Next month, the Duke and Duchess will show their commitment to causes close to their heart as they are to return to Europe three months after they travelled to the UK to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

On September 5, Meghan – eight years after she first tied links with this association – will deliver a keynote address at the Manchester One Young World Summit before meeting with Harry some delegates who have been championing gender equality.

The following day, the couple will be in Germany to attend an event marking the one-year countdown to the next Invictus Games, to be hosted by Dusseldorf.

And two days later, they will be in London to celebrate outstanding and brave ill children and young people supported by WellChild, an organisation of which Harry has been the patron since 2007.
