Cuando la prensa extranjera dice que el príncipe Harry le está siguiendo los pasos a su progenitora, la princesa Diana de Gales, no está mintiendo, es la verdad, y él mismo lo ha reconocido el viernes en una publicación que hiciera la cuenta oficial en Instagram Sussexroyal. «Es increíblemente emocional seguir los pasos de mi madre», dijo.

“It’s incredibly emotional to follow in the footsteps of my mother… If 20 years ago she hadn’t done what she did, this would still be a minefield. To see this as a thriving community is amazing.” – The Duke of Sussex Above, some words from The Duke of Sussex as he spoke candidly today about his experience retracing his mother’s visit to Angola in 1997. He was able to see firsthand more of the legacy she left on the world. Princess Diana brought global attention to the issue of landmines and helped change the future for this community in Huambo, and many more like it. This afternoon, 22 years later, The Duke was able to walk the same path, but now rather than walking amongst mines, he was able to walk among a bustling community with schools, colleges and small businesses. Earlier today The Duke joined @thehalotrust to once again highlight the issue of landmines that still threatens more than 60 million people worldwide. #RoyalVisitAngola Video © SussexRoyal

El padre real, de 35 años, no solo ha visitado en el marco de su gira oficial por Angola, los mismos lugares que recorrió Lady Di en su viaje en 1997. Además, se ha dado a la tarea de conocer a las personas que en su momento estrecharon sus manos con Diana y que, desde ese entonces, su vida dio un giro radical.

El viernes, durante su visita a la ciudad de Huambo, Harry se paseó por el Centro Ortopédico Princess Diana, el famoso hospital africano que visitó la princesa hace 22 años. Durante su permanencia en el recinto, el esposo de Meghan Markle conoció a Sandra Thijika, una de las víctimas de las minas terrestres que tuvo la oportunidad de compartir, a sus 13 años, con la madre de éste.

Actualmente, Sandra es una mujer de 35 años, misma edad de Harry. Ella tiene una pierna protésica que la ayuda a moverse. Cuando vio a la realeza, no pudo evitar sonreír. Éste le estrechó la mano y se arrodilló para conversar con ella. También habló con Justina César, otra víctima de una mina terrestre que perdió su pierna cuando, apenas, tenía 3 años.

En un video compartido en Instagram, el padre de Archie, de 4 meses, aseguró que «Si (Diana) hace 20 años no hubiese hecho lo que hizo, esto todavía sería un campo minado». La princesa Diana trajo la atención global al problema de las minas terrestres y ayudó a cambiar el futuro para los habitantes de Huambó. Hoy, la comunidad cuenta con escuelas, colegios, universidades y pequeñas empresas.

“If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and uninhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalTourAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA
