Prince Harry's South American Tour Details Revealed: Six Days in Brazil, Chile
Prince Harry is South America bound! The red-headed royal is scheduled to journey to the continent next month for a six-day trip.
Harry, 29, will spend his time in Brazil and Chile, his private secretary Edward Lane Fox tells Us.
"Prince Harry will visit Brazil and Chile in a little over three weeks time – between Monday 23rd June and Sunday 29th June," Fox told Us Weekly during an announcement at Buckingham Palace on Friday, May 30. "He will spend four days in Brazil and three days in Chile. It promises to be a very exciting visit and one which Prince Harry is really looking forward to."
Prince William's younger brother will arrive in the capital Brasilia on Monday, June 23. While in the area he will visit doctors and patients in a local hospital, and watch the Cameroon v. Brazil World Cup match at the city's Estadio Nacional.
The newly single royal, who recently ended his two-year relationship with socialite Cressida Bonas, will then travel to the city of Belo Horizonte for a stop at the Olympic-training tennis club and a brunch in support of the business relations between the UK and Brazil.
While still in the country, Prince Harry will attend more soccer matches, visit Sao Paulo, see the rainforest, and attend "the Queen's Birthday Party at the Brazilian British Centre in Pinheiros, Sao Paulo – an event to celebrate Her Majesty's official birthday."
On Friday, June 27, Harry will arrive in Chile for his three-day visit in the area. During his stay, he will visit a kindergarten for underprivileged children, speak with a Chilean military unit, attend another celebration in recognition of the Queen's birthday, and mingle with locals.
"This visit will allow Prince Harry to further develop his links with South America and do what he enjoys most: meeting a wide cross section of society and undertake an energetic and diverse program of engagements," Fox told Us.
"The Prince's last – and only – visit to South America was during his memorable trip to Brazil in March 2012, when he had an action packed 36 hours in Rio de Janeiro and then played in the Sentebale Polo Cup in Campinas in Sao Paulo State," he continued. "His Royal Highness fondly remembers the incredibly warm welcome he received back in 2012, something which has stoked his enthusiasm to return and continue building his links with this wonderfully colorful and vibrant continent."
