An annual FRENCH PRESENCE IN KZN programme runs in the week the closest to the 1 June – the date on which the Prince Imperial lost his life in an ambush in the closing stages of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. The FRENCH week ends at the Prince Imperial monument and during the commemorative ceremonies wreathes are laid at the Prince’s monument and at the tombs of the two soldiers killed with him. The Zulu guide, also killed at the same time, some 500 metres away, does not have a memorial, as yet. The Zululand soil bears his memory.
