  Harry to continue his mum's work
Updated 17 September 2004, 09.23

Prince Harry has said he plans to carry on doing his mum's work after making a film about kids with Aids in Africa.

The 20-year-old Prince spent eight weeks working in an orphanage in an African country called Lesotho where Aids is a huge problem.

While he was there he made a film for TV and in interviews for it spoke about his mum, the Princess of Wales.

He said that he wanted to make his mother proud but added that no-one could take over her role.

In the film, Harry said: "I always wanted to go to an Aids country to carry on my mother's legacy as much as I can.


"I don't want to take over from her because I never will. I don't think anyone can, but I want to try to carry it on to make her proud."

He thinks his mum would have supported his work with Aids orphans.

"I believe I've got a lot of my mother in me, basically, and I think she'd want us to do this, me and my brother," he said.
