JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - Britain's Prince Harry attended a fundraising gala dinner organised in neighbouring South Africa for his Lesotho charity projects as he wrapped up his three-day visit to southern Africa.

The funds will be used to build a permanent centre for children and youths orphaned and infected by HIV and Aids. The centre will enable the services to widen four fold the numbers of children currently cared for.

During a tour of the projects in Lesotho earlier in the day the third-in-line to the British throne found time to perform traditional dance moves with children. It was his return visit to the southern African kingdom.

On the last day of the tour, the 28-year-old stopped by schools for deaf and blind children in and around the capital Maseru.
