Prince Harry hits his royal stride in first tour
He's still the Party Prince, but If there was any doubt about Prince Harry's ability to carry off a royal tour, it has been put to rest over the last week.
On Sunday, the Prince completed the public portion of his tour with a charity polo match on a farm in Campinas, Brazil, in aid of his charity Sentebale. The word means "forget Me not," in memory of his mother Princess Diana, and the group helps children in Lesotho, South Africa.
It's doubtful the four countries Harry visited this last week -- Belize, The Bahamas, Jamaica and Brazil -- will soon forget the 27-year-old Prince. He lived up to his billing as the fun royal, jumping into every activity with enthusiasm, drinking in (sometimes literally) the local scene and charming even the anti-royal politicians along the way.
Harry was in Brazil on behalf of the UK government, pushing his country as a economic and tourist haven as Britian in 2012 features the Olympics as well as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Harry set up Sentebale, which means Forget Me Not, in memory of his late mother, Diana Princess of Wales, to help young children in poverty-stricken Lesotho, southern Africa.
The prince sees it as a personal mission to continue her renowned humanitarian work.
