Diana made a similar trip in 1997, just a few months before her death. The image of her walking the minefields with protective headgear did a great deal to raise awareness of the issue. Harry also traveled to Mozambique in 2010 to see the work of HALO there.

The Palace called it a "personal and private" trip for Harry, who lost his mother at just 12 years old.
