Prince Harry to visit Brazil in March for charities

Britain's Prince Harry is set to visit Brazil in March to support his charities and enhance U.K.-Brazil ties.

St. James' Palace said the 27-year-old prince will visit Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo from March 9 to 11.

The trip comes after Harry tours Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica in the first week of March on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The palace said that it would be the first time the prince visited any of the countries.

The Brazil tour is organized by Britain's Foreign Office, but Harry will stay on privately until March 14.
