Prince Harry managed to slyly slip out of the country this past week for a secret trip to Botswana, which he undertook alone without his wife Meghan.

The Prince's under-the-radar trip was in aid of a visit to the Rhino Conservation Botswana, which Harry is a patron of.

A Spokeswoman for Kensington Palace said: 'The Duke of Sussex is on a private working trip to Botswana, to join the annual general meeting for Rhino Conservation Botswana in his capacity as patron'.

'He attended the board meeting in Maun and an RCB community project in Xarakao village'.

Harry visited earlier this year on a similar mission to help safeguard Botswana's black and white rhinos. He has also famously taken Meghan on a date in the country early on in their relationship and spent her 36th birthday with her there last year.
