On Angolan soil, the prince will visit the landmine clearance project in Angola, a process highlighted in several photos distributed worldwide, during the visit to the country of his late mother, Princess Diana.

Prince Harry has already been to Angola for a demining project in 2013 following his mother's footsteps.

“Harry is going to visit the place where his mother was photographed. He'll see how an area that was a dangerous minefield in 1997 is now a busy street with schools, shops and houses, "Buckingham Palace wrote last Friday in reference to the site in Huambo city.

The British royal palace says the visit will be similar to what Princess Diana did more than 20 years ago. "Photographs of Princess Diana visiting the landmine clearance site and meeting the victims have become iconic and powerful images," the statement said.
