After taking part in BGC’s Charity Day and attending a requiem memorial for family friend, Hugh van Custem, Prince Harry attended the 2013 WellChild Awards at the Dorchester Hotel.
Harry became the first royal patron of the charity in 2007, which provides support and care for seriously ill children and those who look after them.
Harry spoke with some of the guests of honor, who were a smidge more behaved than last year’s crew.
Nine-year-old Nikki Christou told Harry that she shared the same birthday as Prince George. Not only that, but her father’s name is George and her brother goes by Alexander, which is one of George’s middle names.
Harry listened attentively.
“Wow. Very, very weird,” he said to Nikki. “I’ve just literally seen him. Normally when I see him he’s either sleeping or crying but I’ve just seen him smile. It was the first time I’ve seen him smile.”
Harry has been preparing for Walking With The Wounded’s South Pole Challenge, which kicks off in November. On September 17th, the Prince will take part in a 24-hour Cold Chamber training exercise with Team UK.
The latest Hollywood news reports that PRINCE HARRY‘s presence triggered angry Talibans to attack the British Afghanistan base.
Oh my… They really do want the young Prince killed!
Despite recent reports that British troops are not fearing the Taliban’s threat to kill Prince Harry as he serves 4-months in Afghanistan (currently as a “gunner” on an attack helicopter), it looks like the Taliban are keeping their word.
On Saturday, Taliban attacked the British base, killing two U.S. Marines and wounding several troops. Their reason? It was an anti-Islamic film that insulted Muhammad.
Oh, and also because the young royal, Capt. Harry Wales was there.
Taliban spokesman, Qari Youssef Ahmadi, told The Associated Press by telephone:
“We attacked that base because Prince Harry was also on it and so they can know our anger. Thousands more suicide attackers are ready to give up their lives for the sake of the Prophet.”
Fortunately, Prince Harry was a mile away from the area and was unharmed by the surprise overnight attack.
Maybe he can just go back to Vegas where he’s much safer (though hopefully very much naked)?
