Britain's Prince Harry has made a documentary film about the impact of AIDS in the southern African nation of Lesotho, where he spent eight weeks earlier this year working with AIDS patients, Canada's National Post reports. The film, titled The Forgotten Kingdom: Prince Harry in Lesotho, shows the prince working at AIDS projects in the country and includes interviews with doctors, aid workers, and the brother of Lesotho's king. About one third of Lesotho's 2 million people are HIV-positive.
"Harry wanted to go to Lesotho to learn more about the problems faced in a country affected by AIDS and to do what he could to help," a palace spokesman told BBC News. "He was really affected by his experience there and the people he met. He hopes that his visit and now the film will help to raise awareness and money to help tackle the problems faced by the people of Lesotho." The film will be shown on the United Kingdom's ITV later this month.
