He may be the father of a barely one-month-old tot, but there's no slowing down for the Duke of Sussex.
After a jam-packed few weeks which involved
meeting the world's best cricketers, hosting the Trumps at Buckingham Palace, and joining his wife for her first official public appearance after giving birth at Trooping the Colour,
Prince Harry was out again on Tuesday night for a fundraising concert to support one of his charities.
The Sentebale Audi Concert was held to support the prince's charity Sentebale, which he founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006, to support vulnerable children in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi affected by the HIV epidemic. HIV is still a leading cause of death in each of the countries.
The prince was again flying solo, with his wife Meghan Markle currently on maternity leave
after giving birth to their son, Archie, in early May.
British singer Rita Ora headlined the concert, while spoken word artist and Sentebale ambassador George the Poet (George Mpanga) also performed to an audience of about 3,000 people.
The event also featured 2018
Britain’s Got Talent finalists B Positive, Zulu ballet INALA, the Soweto Gospel Choir and Morena Leraba, a musician and shepherd from Lesotho.
