Princess Diana always held a special place in the hearts of Deaf people in the UK because of her efforts to learn sign language, and it looks like this has rubbed off on Prince Harry, after he was filmed signing with children at a deaf school in Lesotho.
Y’know, the naked photos in Vagas, dressing up in inappropriate fancy dress and a habit of using offensive terms for colleagues from ethnic minorities, well, us Deafies can (almost) forgive all that, because as you can tell from the photos, Harry made their day.
Prince Harry has said he hopes his late mother would be “proud” of his fundraising efforts, as he launched a project to help disadvantaged children in South Africa.
The Prince mentioned Diana, Princess of Wales, as he gave a speech at a gala dinner for his Sentebale charity.
Earlier in the day, he met youngsters at a school for deaf children in Lesotho, where he learned sign language and took part in a kneeling dance.
The royal hopes to raise £2.5m to build the Mamohato Centre, which will provide psychological care and offer mentoring to children with HIV/Aids.
