Prince Harry backs Dubai Expo bid

The UK’s Prince Harry backed Dubai’s bid to host the 2020 Expo while attending a fundraising event at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel.

The “Forget Me Not” dinner was in partnership with the Al Jalila Foundation and was set up to raise money for the charity Sentebale which works with vulnerable children in Lesotho.

The Prince thanked guests for their support and wished the UAE well in its bid to host the World Expo 2020.

“Thank you for your attendance. I wish Dubai 2020 success,” he said in Arabic.

Earlier Prince Harry had been greeted by British singer Joss Stone and TV personality Denise Van Outen.
