Prince Harry to visit Nepal this spring.

As Nepal is recovering from the devastating April 2015 earthquake, the Kensington palace has confirmed the Britten’s Prince Harry’s royal tour of Nepal. The 31 year old Harry’s trip was confirmed following the announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Bhutan. 
News of Harry's trip was confirmed on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account, with a message that read: "Prince Harry will make an official visit to Nepal this spring. It will be the first time HRH has visited the country."

Harry's visit is being undertaken at the request of Her Majesty's Government and will see him follow in the footsteps of his father Prince Charles and his grandparents the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, who have all carried out official visits to the region.
The last visit to Nepal was carried out by Prince Philip in 2000, and Prince Harry's trip will be the first official tour of Nepal since it became a republic in 2008.
While full details of his trip are yet to be confirmed, it is expected that Harry will see how the country is rebuilding following the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Kathmandu in April, which killed over 9,000 people and left a further 23,000 people injured
