Prince William to meet Joe Jonas

Prince William is due to meet American pop star Joe Jonas

American pop star Joe Jonas will meet Prince William when the pair show their support for an innovative conservation project being run in Botswana.

The teenage singing sensation and the royal will learn about Coaching for Conservation which marries football skills to wildlife protection.

The innovative project run by the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust also teaches youngsters self respect and awareness about the environment around them.

The US performer, part of the popular Jonas Brothers group with his two siblings, is in Botswana on a charity visit and has toured secondary schools in the northern town of Maun.

Also taking part in the event is South African footballer Lucas Radebe.

William is in southern Africa with Prince Harry taking part in their first joint tour that will also take both royals to Lesotho and South Africa.

In Lesotho the princes will visit Harry's charitable interests while in their final stop they will support England in their World Cup match against Algeria and promote the Football Association's bid to host the global soccer tournament in 2018.

Harry will fly ahead to Lesotho later and will be joined later by his brother.
