Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will visit Nottingham

Prince Harry Engagement



Friday 1st December

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will visit Nottingham on Friday 1st December for two separate engagements on subjects that His Royal Highness is passionate about raising awareness of – HIV/AIDS and youth crime.

Prince Harry has spent a significant amount of private and public time in the city and His Royal Highness is looking forward to introducing Ms. Markle to a community that has become very special to him.

Together they will first visit the Nottingham Contemporary which will be hosting a Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair. On arrival at the venue, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will have the opportunity to meet gathered members of the local community outside the National Justice Museum. They will then meet representatives from Terrence Higgins Trust Nottingham, the African Institute for Social Development and Champions for Change, who each support local communities in Nottingham and do specific work around HIV/AIDS. They will also meet representatives from The Food Chain and BHIVA, which support people living with HIV and work towards eradicating the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will then travel on to Nottingham Academy where they will meet Head teachers from the Academy and local primary schools as well Full Effect staff and mentors. Full Effect is a programme that has been supported by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry since 2013. The programme supports children and young people in the St Ann’s area of Nottingham from becoming involved in youth violence and crime through a combination of early intervention, mentorship, and training.

During their visit to the Academy, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will hear first-hand from staff about the positive impact Full Effect is having on the local school communities and student. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle will then have the opportunity to meet some of the children benefitting from the programme’s Friday Night Youth Club which began in September. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will also catch up with Chantelle Stefanovic, who recently spoke about the issues facing children and young people in St. Ann’s at the inaugural summit of the Obama Foundation in Chicago, as well as meet some of the young women she mentors. Before departing, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will watch a performance put on by some of the young people involved in the Full Effect programme.
