Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are coming to Germany on September 6th.
This was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the couple at the request of the German Press Agency.
The couple therefore wants to take part in an event in Düsseldorf in the run-up to the "Invictus Games", which will be held there next year.
This is a sports competition for soldiers and veterans injured in action - and a project close to the heart of the 37-year-old prince.
The couple, who now live in the US state of California, want to visit some charities in Europe.
Before their visit to Germany, the royals will meet young executives in the English city of Manchester.
Then, on September 8th, it's off to Great Britain again for an award ceremony for seriously ill children.
The two are delighted, the statement said.
Harry and Meghan had broken away from the close circle of the British royal family in early 2020.
They live in Santa Barbara, California with their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.
The relationship with the rest of the Royals is considered partially tense.
Home visits have become rare in recent years, not only because of the pandemic.
Harry is also in litigation with the UK Home Office over whether and how he can still get police protection for himself and his family in the UK.
