Το 1997, μόλις λίγους μήνες πριν τον τραγικό της θάνατο στο Παρίσι, η  ριγκίπισσα Νταϊάνα επισκέφθηκε την Ανγκόλα και περπάτησε σε ενεργό ναρκοπέδιο για να ευαισθητοποιήσει τα κράτη για τα χιλιάδες παιδιά που είχαν χάσει τη ζωή τους ή είχαν ακρωτηριαστεί παίζοντας σε τέτοια ναρκοπέδια.

Οι εικόνες τότε έκαναν τον γύρο του κόσμου και έγιναν από τις εμβληματικές φωτογραφίες τις Νταϊάνα.

Σήμερα, 22 χρόνια μετά την κίνηση της πριγκίπισσας, ο πρίγκιπας Χάρι ακολούθησε τα βήματα της μητέρας του: περπάτησε για τον ίδιο σκοπό σε ναρκοπέδιο της Αγκόλα, όπου βρίσκεται στο πλαίσιο της περιοδείας του στη νότια Αφρική.

Ο ίδιος αργότερα ανέβασε στο Instagram μια φωτογραφία της μητέρας του και στη συνέχεια μία δική του, στέλνοντας  μήνυμα για την απαγόρευση των όπλων και την προστασία της ζωής των ανθρώπων και κυρίως των παιδιών.

 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 

 
 

 
 
 

“If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and unhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalVisitAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA
