Prince Harry is currently in Africa doing work with his charity, Sentebale.

On Tuesday, Prince Harry was joined by Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, who co-founded the charity with him, when he visited the charity Touching Tiny Lives, a blog post for the organization said.

“Their visit was complete with arrival by helicopter and Prince Harry dancing with our very own Tsepo, who happily took center stage in the safe-home,” the post said.

Sentebale is a non-profit organization that helps children who are the victims of extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS epidemic, the organization’s website says.

On Wednesday, the prince will visit the Maseru district of Lesotho, stopping at two of Sentebale’s community-based partners which care for children with disabilities and those whom are orphaned, a release from the charity said.

Wednesday evening, he’ll be at a gala in Johannesburg to launch new fundraising efforts.

Harry is working with his charity during the three day trip. Reports he was set to meet his latest girlfriend’s parents at the wedding of Sir Richard Branson’s son after that were apparently wrong as the Express reports Harry won’t be attending the wedding with Cressida Bonas. The wedding is taking place in near Kruger National Park in South Africa.

“I am told Harry is not going at all. He is there on a charity mission. His relationship is going well, but after the skiing pictures I think some in the media are getting a bit ahead of themselves,” a source said.

Harry was seen cuddling up to Bonas on the ski slopes in Switzerland last week and many headlines reported on their supposed “love nest” and some even described Bonas as “marriage material.”
