Kensington Palace Just Shared Never-Before-Seen Photos of Prince Harry in Africa
As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack Prince Harry a dull boy. Thankfully, the Duke of Sussex was able to merge the two on a trip to Lesotho, Africa, last month where he reconnected with his inner child.
The newly married prince left his wife, Meghan Markle, behind and visited Lesotho for the opening of a new school and house funded by the Sentebale charity, which he co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006. The charity aims to help children affected by HIV and AIDS in southern Africa lead fulfilling lives.
The prince celebrated the milestone visit with balloons and a cool new little friend, natch.
But the fun didn’t stop there. In another photo, Harry played a game of catch-the-balloon with a different tot. Just look at that concentration.

Royal photographer Chris Jackson also shared a snap of the prince getting sporty with a group of kids from the Mamohato Children’s Centre.
Jackson’s caption explained the game was part of a program that helps educate and empower children in the mountain kingdom of Mamohato to “take control of their future.”
Harry is speaking at the AIDS conference in Amsterdam today and meeting with youth advocates fighting to end HIV/AIDS, so the photos couldn’t come at a more perfect time.
