Just quoting the article: "
The men went on to spend three weeks helping to refurbish a special needs school in the Aids-blighted kingdom of Lesotho. "

But yes, I remember they had something else going on before... training in Namibia?

A 2 week holiday camping next to their Land Rovers, many do that anyway just for fun! It can hardly be called a 'tour' in the military sense!

Mandela had a lot of respect and admiration for Diana and he even insisted on paying his respects at her grave. Now we read about Harry's trip and his feelings regarding Mandela. I find that very interesting...

Harry makes pilgrimage to the cell where his hero served 18 years

If the allegations are true, that is very unfortunate and needs to be investigated properly!

This from The Times link:

Miguel Head, Sentebale’s spokesman at Clarence House, said it had given LCCU £28,000 to help it start up. “This year we still plan to give £38,000 to LCCU and spend a further £27,000 on management support and training,” he said.
He said one reason for Sentebale’s delay was because it was not satisfied with Muso’s initial request for funding to be paid directly into her own bank account.

The last line is instructive.

Prince Harry's charity accused of not honouring pledge to abused African children - Telegraph
quote from the article:
But Sentebale, which supports 15 other organisations in Lesotho, has declined to hand over money because of an apparent unwillingness from the unit's management to give undertakings over the transparency of their financial procedures.
A source added: “All the other local organisations with which Sentebale works in Lesotho readily sign up to the same, basic levels of transparency.”

Didn't the same organisation make the same complaint six months or so ago? Then, the issue was over bank account details.
Otherwise we could just as easily have the story "Harry's charity gives money to an organisation that refuses to reveal details of its financial procedures".

I wish that the British Prince Harry would concentrate his support on charities for children in Britain, but all charitable institutions should be transparent and their accounts open to be seen by all interested parties.
Not because I grudge those poor children in Africa help but most of the governments of these countries have very rich resources and should help their own more instead of relying on any foreign country to provide what they don´t for their population.

This is a very real issues that face a number of charitable institutions - making sure the projects you provide funding for and are actually goingto use the funds in the way that you expect them to. It does not sutrprise me that despite having eht funding in place, Prince Harry's charity has been unable to advance the cash

I agree with you absolutely. They should help; but they don't. The UK, on the other hand, has a welfare system. It's not perfect, but it's there to aid people who need help.

I'm fortunate enough to have met the people in Africa to whom my dollars are going. It's a school for AIDs orphans, and I know that the man who runs it isn't skimming funds.

A secret donation from one of the Conservative Party's richest benefactors has averted a financial crisis at Prince Harry's charity to help starving children in Africa.

One has to question what has happened to the money, time for new managers perhaps?

In 2007, the charity Sentebale raised £1.15 million but donations fell to only £250,000 last year - and the charity had to spend the equivalent of a quarter of that, £62,000, to raise it in the first plac
