Prince Harry and Prince William have followed in their mom's footsteps and prioritized charity over the years. As the Prince of Wales, William invested time and resources into the arts, mental health, and he is currently hoping to eradicate homelessness.

While William focused on his royal duties, Harry grew his passion for wildlife conservation and HIV/Aids research — clearly, their projects are an extension of Princess Diana's legacy.

The princes continue to focus on humanitarian efforts, and they are both scheduled to travel to Singapore to continue their advocacy. Although William and Harry are set to go to the island republic in Southeast Asia, their trips won't overlap.

William will fly to the commonwealth in November for the 2023 Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony, and Sentebale announced on Monday, July 31, that the Duke of Sussex will play in the 2023 Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at the Singapore Polo Club on Wednesday, August 12.

Harry celebrated the announcement and the organization's focus on children diagnosed with HIV in Lesotho.

"The annual Polo Cup is essential to Sentebale's vital work ensuring children and young people are healthy, resilient and able to thrive," the former captain said in a statement. "The funds raised this year will support our Clubs and Camps program, which provides intensive psychosocial support to young people living with HIV."

The father-of-two later discussed the strides made in research and treatment and how the sporting event will benefit the organization he founded in 2006 alongside Prince Seeiso.

"In a time where being HIV positive is no longer a death sentence, we are empowering young people to know their status, stay healthy, and eliminate the stigma so that they can break the cycle," he explained.

"We are delighted to return to the renowned Singapore Polo Club in August, and are once again enormously grateful for the polo community and our sponsors, in particular ISPS Handa, for their ongoing commitment to Lesotho and Botswana's youth," he added.

As the heir to the throne, William developed a global project that could benefit his future role as king. With climate change being an ongoing global concern, Earthshot Prize was incubated within The Royal Foundation and later launched in 2020.

"The Earthshot Prize is all about showing the world that solutions to some of the biggest environmental challenges we face are out there. After two years of discovering impactful ideas and innovations, I am delighted that The Earthshot Prize is traveling to Singapore, where the groundbreaking solutions of our 2023 Finalists will be celebrated," William said during Earthshot's destination announcement.
