Like father, like son! In addition to Prince Charles being a lover of art, as is Prince Harry. The 28-year-old prince and uncle-to-be plans to attend a photography exhibition in support of his charity, Sentebale, in late July. The charity, which was co-founded by Prince Harry with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006, aims to “reach Lesotho’s most needy and vulnerable children, many of whom are the victims of extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS epidemic,” according to the official website.
Sentebale CEO Cathy Ferrier released a statement on the Sentebale website stating: “Sentebale are delighted to be partnering with Chris Jackson and Getty Images Gallery to deliver a visual record of our work. We have ambitious plans to expand, including building a specialist centre for children living with HIV which will allow us to reach many more young people in Lesotho. We would like to invite everyone along to the exhibition to see for themselves the difference we are making to the children of Lesotho.”
The exhibition, titled Sentebale-Stories of Hope, will be held at the Getty Images Gallery in London and while Prince Harry’s July 25th appearance will be by invitation only, the exhibition will be open to the public from July 26th through August 10th. The spotlight will be focused on photographer Chris Jackson’s experience in Lesotho and showcasing Sentebale’s work.
