It was indeed a sweet moment when Prince Harry recently reunited with an old pal in South Africa. The prince arrived in South Africa for a week-long visit.
Harry reached South Africa straight from London in an overnight flight. On his arrival, he met several officials and dignitaries. He also met King Letsei III at the latter’s palace in Maseru.
Thereafter, Harry also visited the Marnohato Children’s Centre, where he officially inaugurated a new center for AIDS and HIV-infected children. Portions of the center have been named after his late mom, Princess Diana, as well as after Olga Powell, his nanny.
It was then that an extremely special reunion took place, as Prince Harry was reunited with an orphan boy. This was the same boy with whom he struck a friendship about 11 years back at a home called Mants’ase Children’s Home.
The prince, 31 has been in touch with the boy ever since.
Mutsu Potsane was then just a 4-year-old child when he met Prince Harry. He was instantly drawn to the British royal and a deep attachment developed between the two. The prince, who is known to be extremely kind-hearted, gifted the little boy a pair of Wellington boots when he had first met him.
The young boy loved his gift so much that he wore them to bed.
Potsane, who is now 14 years old, met the royal prince and the rest was history. Harry instantly scooped him in his arms and gave him a bear hug.
The prince obviously was in a playful mood, as he messed up his teenager friend’s hat, which made him laugh.
After their meeting was over, the young boy shared via a translator was that he was extremely excited and happy. He feels quite comfortable when Harry is around and he is equally comfortable with him. The boy felt that both of them clicked rather well.
Prince Harry indeed showed the world that royalty and kindness go hand in hand.
