The Duke of Sussex has returned to Lesotho where he was to open a community hall.

It is just the latest trip to the kingdom for Harry who co-founded the Sentebale charity to help the southern African nation.

He first visited the country in 2004 and, while a lot has happened to him since then, his interest in the nation shows no sign of waning.
