  • Diana Princess of Wales in Angola in 1997

Pictures of her in protective gear drew global attention to the brutal civil war in the Central African country, that lasted from 1975 until 2002.

Speaking Monday at London's Chatham House think tank, Harry said Angola's wilderness was "an asset that should be protected, celebrated and benefited by its people".

The funds will be used to clear 153 minefields in an area with vital waterways to the Okavango Delta.

Speaking about his visit to Angola, Harry added: "In Cuando Cubango, in the far south-east of what is a vast, handsome country, I saw a struggling community in a deserted landscape unable to make use of the land".

Trump Pauses Interview After WH Staffer Coughs: "Please Leave The Room"
After the coughing quotes hit Twitter , Washington Post reporter Jackie Alemany chimed in with a quote from a 2016 Trump campaign worker.

Harry has already championed the efforts of his mother, visiting Angola in 2013 to support the work to clear landmines, and before leaving the event will give a short speech.

In Cuando Cubango - in the far southeast of what is a vast, attractive country - I saw a struggling community in a deserted landscape unable to make use of the land, yet the potential to turn this land into a sustainable source for its people.

The Duke of Sussex will visit the minefield his mother famously walked through more than twenty years ago.

"What is less well known is the impact landmines can have on conservation and wildlife, and therefore the economy".
