Royal fans were quick to praise Harry for his visit, with many comparing him to his late mother Princess Diana (opens in new tab), who was renowned for her humanitarian work.
One Twitter user commented, “His mother’s son in every way. Actions speak better than words. Full of kindness and full of empathy.”
Another user also wrote, “His compassion and respect are super inspiring! His humanity is a reminder of what his late mother stood for... Kindness”
This comes after Harry previously revealed the special place that Africa holds in his heart, sharing that it’s where he first realised that Meghan was his 'soulmate’ (opens in new tab) and where he feels closest to his mother, Princess Diana, with the pair feeling like they had her 'magic' with them (opens in new tab) during their first Africa tour.
The poignant appearance was part of Harry’s solo trip to Africa, where as President of African Parks, (a non-profit conservation group that manages national parks across the country) he also met with President Kagame.
According to Hello (opens in new tab), Harry, “welcomed and co-hosted a group of US officials, conservationists, and philanthropists as they toured protected wildlife and nature areas.”
This trip is one of many Harry will undertake in the coming weeks, with Harry and Meghan set to make their UK return for two upcoming charity events.
