Prince Harry returns to Lesotho for charity visit
BUASONO, Lesotho: Britain's Prince Harry visited his charity projects in Lesotho on Wednesday, finding time to perform traditional dance moves with children during his return visit to the southern African kingdom.
On the third day of a three-day tour, the 28-year-old stopped at the Kananelo Centre for the Deaf, where around 70 kids cheered his arrival.
He took part in a traditional dance with the students, though the locals coyly admitted that the flame-haired royal messed up the moves.
Some children also performed a mini-theatre production in sign language to show off the skills learnt at the centre, which was built with the support of the prince's NGO Sentebale.
It teaches the national curriculum in sign language and also trains life skills in the impoverished country.
The prince was given a violin-like instrument and a traditional clothing blanket.
Harry will next travel to a primary school for blind children and a community housing and water project.
The projects work with Sentebale, an organisation which Harry set up with Prince Seeiso, the younger brother of King Letsie of Lesotho.
Its name, in local language Sesotho, means "forget me not".
The third-in-line to the British throne will whisk off to Johannesburg in neighbouring South Africa the afternoon for a fund-raising gala dinner. -AFP
