Charles Praises Diana

The Prince of Wales -- the heir to the British throne -- has paid public tribute to the work of his ex-wife, Diana Princess of Wales, who was killed in a car crash last August.

Prince Charles, on a visit to South Africa, was speaking at a banquet hosted by President Nelson Mandela in Cape Town.

The prince praised Princess Diana's work to combat AIDS, poverty and the use of landmines.

He said he knew her efforts had made a real difference to the lives of very many people in Africa and elsewhere in the world.

President Mandela described the Princess a citizen of the world through her care for people everywhere.

Earlier Prince Charles toured one of South Africa's poorest urban areas -- the shanty towns near Cape Town.
