Prince Harry is gearing up to host a fun-filled 10th birthday party for his charity Sentable.
On Wednesday 7 May Harry and the charity’s co-founder Prince Seeiso of Lesotho will welcome guests to the Sentebale Summer Party at The Dorchester, Park Lane, London.
The evening will feature performances by You Had Me singer Joss Stone, The Bodyguard musical’s leading woman Beverley Knight and entertainment from magician Troy.
Singer Joss has long been involved with Sentebale and spent the month of April visiting Lesotho to work with visually impaired children and help raise awareness for their cause.

Guests at the party will also be treated to a VIP drinks reception and dinner, followed by recognition awards to celebrate key individuals and organisations that have shaped the charity into what it is today.

While Sentebale was set up in 2006, a statement released on the organisation’s official website confirmed that “the evening is to mark 10 years since the Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso made their commitment to helping the vulnerable children of Lesotho” as it was in 2004, while he was on his gap year, that Prince Harry visited Lesotho.

The pair, who have both lost their mothers, decided to set up Sentebale, which means ‘forget me not’ in Sesotho, in the hope of giving some of the most vulnerable children the chance of a happy, hopeful future.
