Harry hoped his visit would result in more British aid being sent to Lesotho, where up to one third of the people are believed to be HIV positive and drought has caused serious food shortages. "Recognition from people back in England, charities in England, to recognize Lesotho as somewhere that needs help. They haven't got enough help yet," he said.
Harry's host, Lesotho's Prince Seeiso, said the kingdom hoped the visit would "improve our profile" but also that he would take home a personal interest in the country. Prince Harry has also founded his own charity Sentebale with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help orphaned children and vulnerable young people in the Southern African country. He is Joint Patron of Sentebale.
