JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Britain’s Prince Harry and retired South African archbishop Desmond Tutu have discussed charity work and community development over tea in South Africa.

The prince’s office at Kensington Palace said Monday that Harry, who was recently in Lesotho to open a children’s center, visited Tutu at his foundation’s offices in Cape Town and learned about the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s work in promoting human rights and helping young people get jobs.

Tutu thanked Harry for his work in Lesotho, saying he was “touched” by the prince’s commitment to a country where Tutu once served as bishop.

Tutu won the Nobel prize in 1984 for his campaign to end apartheid. South Africa’s system of white minority rule ended with the country’s first all-race elections in 1994.
