Prince Harry to follow in Princess Diana's footsteps with charity visit

12 APRIL 2013

Prince Harry will follow in the footsteps of his late mother next week when he opens a new home for brain injury charity, Headway. Princess Diana was a royal patron of the association from 1991 until 1996, and now her son is set to highlight the charity's work in much the same way.

Harry will visit Bradbury House in Nottingham for his royal engagement, during which he will be invited to take part in an interactive workshop to simulate the difficulties faced by people with brain injuries.

The king-hearted Prince will also meet with some of the patents helped by Headway, and their carers.

"We are thrilled and delighted that Prince Harry has agreed to visit us in our new home in Nottingham to learn of the work we do to support people affected with brain injury," Andrew Green, chair of Headway, said.

"Princess Diana's support of the charity greatly enhanced its profile and made more people aware not only of brain injury and its effects, but also of the help that was available.

"It will be a momentous day in the history of the charity."

Like his brother and sister-in-law,Prince William and Kate Middleton, Harry supports a number of charities, using his high-profile to help highlight worthy causes around the world.

In 2009, The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry was established, which the royal trio use to help bring aid and awareness to issues that mean a great deal to them, including the Armed Forces, young people and conservation.

Prince Harry also jointly established Sentebale, a charity to help orphans in Lesotho, in 2006 with his friend Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. He has also spoken in the past about his desire to continue the work of his mother, who worked hard to support those suffering with HIV and Aids.
