Prince Harry Honors His Mom's Work to Eliminate Landmines

Prince Harry Honors His Mom's Work to Eliminate Landmines

Prince Harry is making sure to keep his late mother Princess Diana‘s memory alive and he is working to continue her fight against landmines.

The 32-year-old royal gave a speech at the Landmine Free World 2025 Reception on International Mine Awareness Day on Tuesday (April 4) at The Orangery in London, England.

“As I mentioned earlier, in August 1997, my mother traveled to Bosnia with Ken Rutherford,” Harry told the audience. “When she was there she met two young boys, one Muslim, one Serbian, who had both lost legs to landmines. She shared their stories with the world, and helped campaigners, many of whom are in this room, to change history.”

“Those two young boys, Malic and Zarko, are now grown men and are with us today. Twenty years on, they both still struggle with their physical and emotional injuries and with the high costs of replacing their prosthetics. When my mother said goodbye to Zarko that August, just weeks before her untimely death, she told him he would not be forgotten,” he continued. “Please help me keep her word to Zarko and Malic, and other people like them throughout the world, who still need us to finish the job and rid the planet of landmines.”
