The Duke of Sussex will attend the Sentebale Audi Concert

Tuesday, 11th June 2019

The Duke of Sussex will attend a concert hosted by Sentebale in Hampton Court Palace on Tuesday 11th June.

The concert will raise funds and awareness for Sentebale, the charity founded by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso in 2006, to support children and young people affected by HIV and AIDS in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi. This includes Sentebale’s monthly Saturday clubs and residential weeklong camps which delivers psychosocial support to children living with HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. Funds raised from this concert will enable Sentebale to continue helping many more young people in southern Africa giving them hope and opportunity for the future.

Progress has been made over the last 20 years to reduce the number of new HIV infections globally and ensure people living with HIV access the treatment they deserve. However stigma, discrimination and a lack of education surrounding HIV/AIDs means that HIV is still a leading cause of death in 10 to 19-year-olds in Africa.

The concert will be a celebration of African and Western culture. Artists confirmed to perform on the night include Rita Ora, George Mpanga (known as George the Poet) and Morena Leraba, a musician and shepherd from Lesotho, who fuses traditional Famo music with a playful mix of genres. On arrival, The Duke will meet with some of the artists performing in the concert as well as two of Sentebale’s Let Youth Lead advocates before watching part of the concert and delivering some remarks on stage.
