PRINCE Harry marked a royal first yesterday as a video surfaced with the 29-year-old praising Brazilian hospitality.
Instead of conforming to the long standing tradition of writing a letter, the prince, dressed in casual clothes, recorded a heart warming message and posted it on YouTube to thank the people of Brazil for his World Cup trip.
It’s reported that some of the stories encountered during the prince’s weeklong tour in Brazil, has reduced him to tears.
Prince Harry spoke on the British Monarchy YouTube channel: “Coming to the end of the trip, four days in Brazil, we’ve had the most unbelievable time. Thank you so much for all the hospitality and the warmth that everybody has shown me and all our team.
“From visiting hospitals, to visiting the rainforest to visiting Diadema, the whole trip has been absolutely amazing. Meeting all the children, the next generation of footballers, it’s really struck home I feel very, very moved to have spent the last four days here with such amazing passionate people in such a beautiful country. Of course, I’ll be back again. I was here two years ago in Rio, so it’s nice to see the rest of Brazil over this trip.”
