London, Jan 20 (ANI): Prince Harry is all set to visit Brazil for his first trip in his unofficial role as a trade envoy as members of the Royal Family pick up the Duke of York's former role.
The 27-year-old will visit Rio de Janeiro and the state of Sao Paolo on a trip organised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
He will be supporting the launch of the GREAT campaign designed to foster links between Britain and Brazil in the year of the Olympic games in London and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Last year, it was announced that other Royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, would share the duties of Prince Andrew, who resigned as Britain's trade envoy in July, after damaging revelations about his friendship with businessman Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender.
The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, announced Prince Harry's visit from March 9 to 11 during his own trip to Brazil.
"Brazil and the UK have much in common, with a shared history and close cultural bonds," the Telegraph quoted Hague as saying.
"We are committed to strengthening our political, cultural and economic ties, and it is with this in mind that I am visiting Brazil: my first South American trip as Foreign Secretary.
"I am now pleased to announce that His Royal Highness Prince Harry will also soon be here, and will attend the GREAT campaign launch event in March.
"We hope that through this renewed and continued engagement with Brazil to show that we in the UK are open for business with the rest of the world and determined to build our relationships," he added. (ANI)
