Royals and celebrities alike tend to focus on one cause or charity, and Prince Harry of Wales has chosen his cause as helping children in Lesotho. Makes some sense: Lesotho was once the British Protectorate of Basutoland. The charity Prince Harry founded, along with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, is called Sentebale. Sentebale is a sort of compound Sesotho word that means “don’t forget me.” The organization seems well-run. I’ve attended some of their events and know some of the people who work, or worked, for them.
This month, on February 27th, Harry will drop into Lesotho for a brief visit, which he doesn’t get to do often. And when I say brief, I mean brief — less than a day, according to this news release from the Sentebale website.
But how lucky for little Lesotho to be chosen as the philanthropic target for one of the English-speaking world’s most recognizable characters.by
