Prince Harry has always said that Africa is one of the few places in the world he can ‘truly be himself’.
And he certainly proved that today as he took to his knees and danced on the grass with South African children.
The Prince demonstrated he had a remarkably good sense of rhythm - much more so than his father - as he shimmied in time to the traditional whoops and wails of the youngsters.
He was taught a series of phrases in sign language by 14-year-old Nandos Chabalalan including the words for family, father, mother, brother, sister and baby.
The prince also managed to sign 'my name is Harry' and wiped his brow theatrically as he managed to pull it off.
His companion, Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, with whom he co-founded Sentebale, had him in stitches as he asked the children to teach the red-headed royal the word for ginger.
Next it was on to a home economics class where a group of children were being taught to make 'fat cakes', a local doughnut style delicacy.
Harry collapsed in giggles and rolled his eyes when asked to don a rather feminine lilac pinny but was even more amused by the frilly one that Prince Seeiso was offered.
The pair were handed a huge vat of dough to roll out.
'And here's one we made earlier,' he joked, as Seeiso pretended to hit him with the rolling pin.
He whipped up a batch of the cakes and, suprisingly, offered them to the watching press men.
At St Bernadatte’s Centre for the Blind, which cares for 70 children aged between six and 23, Harry is considered ‘an angel from the heaven’ after helping to build dormitories for the children, who until then had been sleeping on the floor.
He also raised funds to build a wall around the school, which was open to the elements and plagued by theft, as well as buy them cookers, pots and pans.
Which is more fun? – Strip pool or grass dancing?
Still paying penance for that little misadventure of yours, I see.
In the past few years, he's done a lot to promote children's charities. In Lesotho, life expectancy for men and women is just 41 years, thus there are a lot of orphans.
I was helping deliver food and schoolbooks to an orphanage in another area of Africa where the life expectancy for men was 38. Going by that, I was one of the elderly people in that nation. It was sobering to look at all those people and realize they wouldn't live far beyond my age at that time, but I could expect many more decades of life.
Did you see Harry's treasure trail trying to peek out in one of those pictures?!
I did notice that Harry is going bald, too. Damn.
Does anyone else see Whoopi in the 4th picture after the videos?
Sister Act III, The Prince and I
Man, he is going to look BAD as he loses his hair. Nothing worse than a balding Brillo haired ginger.
Bet the kids would have collapsed in giggles seeing pics of naked Harry in Vegas.
The guy is an unemployed douche. And now he's balding. Next!!
In a few more years he's going to look like Art Garfunkel.
Prince Harry visits a centre for deaf children on his return trip to the southern African kingdom of Lesotho where he has long-standing personal charity interests.
Diana would be proud of how both of her boys have turned out. She instilled the best values in them and worked hard to turn them into respectable gentleman.
Harry has had his faults but he is a hard worker and seems to have inherited his mothers capacity for universal caring.
Has Charles ever realized how incredibly lucky he is? A true shame if he hasn't.
