Prince Harry in Lesotho

His Royal Highness, Prince Harry has recently completed a three-day tour to Lesotho, a small country bordering South Africa (coincidentally, the only country to do so). The small country hosts a population of only just over two million, 40% of which are living below the international poverty line.

The prince made the trip on behalf of Sentebale, a charity which he helped to establish in 2006 with the help of Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. The charity aims to tackle the issue of HIV and AIDS in the country.

During the tour, Prince Harry made visits to a number of projects which Sentebale is involved in, lending a hand and raising spirits wherever possible.

The young Prince also took part in more light-hearted activities including a traditional dance in the dust on his knees and sporting a pink cooking apron while making a batch of doughnuts.

He also made a visit to St Bernadette’s Centre for the Blind which currently cares for around 70 children, the youngest only age 6.

The trip seemed to move not only those working for Setebale, those following the tour and the wonderful people the prince interacted with but also the prince himself.
