Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to attend the premiere performance of Cirque du Soleil’s Totem at the Royal Albert Hall next week.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join the audience to raise funds and awareness for charity Sentebale, co-founded by Prince Harry, which supports young people affected by HIV in Lesotho, Malawi and Botswana.
The performance on January 16 is the second event in a series of fundraising “Sentebale Nights”, the first of which saw Prince Harry and Meghan visit hit musical Hamilton in August.
Cirque du Soleil’s Totem has acrobats and contortionists leading a journey through the evolution of humanity, exploring mythology and creation stories.
Daniel Lamarre, CEO of Cirque du Soleil, the world’s largest entertainment company, said: “Since our very beginnings, we have always been determined to engage responsibly in the communities that we visit throughout the world. We strive to make a difference in the lives of youths and encourage them to change the world.
“It is because both our organisations share these very values that we will proudly dedicate our TOTEM premiere to the ‘Sentebale Nights’, a perfect way to allow us to raise significant funds and awareness together”.
