Prince Harry is said to be visiting Brazil, the only country on his trip not part of the British Commonwealth, to build stronger ties between the South American nation and the U.K. The visits are a part of the queen's upcoming Diamond Jubilee, according to the prince's office at St. James's Palace, reports People.

The trip won't be all business for Harry - he booked a few extra days in Brazil to stay privately.

Prince William and Kate are doing their rounds to mark the queen's jubilee in the fall. The couple is expected to visit Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu in Asia.
