Prince Harry will undertake two official overseas visits in May and June this year. He will visit Estonia and Italy in May, followed by a visit to Brazil and Chile in June. Both visits are in support of the UK Government and are being organized by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

 In Estonia, Prince Harry will thank the Estonian Defense Forces for their support of British troops in Afghanistan. Estonia has had a company of soldiers in Afghanistan since 2006, who have been directly under UK command and who have served without caveats during their deployment. During the visit, Prince Harry will meet some wounded Estonian soldiers, several of who were treated alongside UK soldiers at Headley Court in the UK.

In Italy, Prince Harry will attend World War II commemoration ceremonies focused on the Battle of Monte Cassino. The four battles for Monte Cassino in Italy took place between January and May 1944. They saw the Allied Forces involved in some of the most hostile fighting of the Second World War. The battles involved troops from America, UK, Canada, France, India, New Zealand and Poland.

Prince Harry’s visit to Brazil and Chile in June is designed to enhance the partnership between the United Kingdom and Brazil and Chile, and build on the links Prince Harry forged during his official visit to Brazil in March 2012.

About the visit, Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Chile, Mrs. Fiona Clouder, said: “We are delighted that Prince Harry will visit Chile in June. This is an opportunity both to celebrate the historic links between Chile and the UK, and to build links for future generations”.

    Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!

    In the eccentric way the English have... Harry is a nickname for Henry.
    Likewise Jack, for John.

    However for the benefit of all, I demure to William Shakespeare;

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
    Or close the wall up with our English dead.
    In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
    As modest stillness and humility:
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger;
    Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
    Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
    Let pry through the portage of the head
    Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
    As fearfully as doth a galled rock
    O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
    Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
    Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
    Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
    To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
    Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
    Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
    Have in these parts from morn till even fought
    And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
    Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
    That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
    Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
    And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
    Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
    The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
    That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
    For there is none of you so mean and base,
    That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
    I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
    Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
    Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
    Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'
