We thought he had left for 20 weeks of parental leave with Meghan Markle, to nurture quietly in Montecito, after the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana, on June 4. It is not so. This week, after a first announcement for the 2023 Invictus Games, which will be held for the first time in Germany, in Düsseldorf, Prince Harry communicated on June 9 on terrible news …
He reacts after “an act of barbarism“
Ten Halo Trust staff were reported to have been killed by an armed group in a mine clearance camp in Afghanistan. The charity works to eliminate anti-personnel mines in war zones. And like his mother, Princess Diana, before him (in 1997), Prince Harry traveled to Angola (in 2019) to support her. Remember, at the time of this African tour, he posed in a landmine field to publicize this fight again.
In the aftermath of this terrible attack, the Duke of Sussex issued a statement on the Halo Trust website in memory of the victims. He wrote : “A total of 26 members of the Afghan HALO Trust team were killed or injured on Tuesday evening in what was nothing less than an act of barbarism. I honor those who have been lost and encourage support for the survivors and the families of those affected.“.
And to add: “Cthose who work for HALO in Afghanistan risk erasing the lasting – and still deadly – scars of war and conflict every day. The men who have been attacked come from the very communities in which they work. They joined HALO to protect and restore their country and their homes. If I understood correctly, deminers who lost their lives also protected their friends “.
Tribute to Lady Di
In line with his mother’s fight, Prince Harry recalled: “These workers put their lives at risk every day to make the world a safer place. This brutal act reminds us that we must stand in solidarity with aid workers and the communities they serve“. In a few weeks, he is expected in London for the unveiling of a statue which will be erected at Kensington Palace, in memory of Lady Diana. From Los Angeles, his youngest is living his legacy.
