I would agree Harry is a very caring young man; I didn't think much of where he got it from; regardless of where he got it from, I think its an admirable trait and am very happy to see it.
Well, Diana did once say that of her two sons, Harry was most like her with his mischievous, but also very emotional temperment. I am sure she meant this in the sense that she and Harry had more need to touch people and be very expressive emotionally, whereas William has more of his father's sense of reserve. I think Prince Charles has an equally passionate personality to Diana, but he finds different ways to show it. Diana was all about hugs and giggles and dramatic shaking of hands and touching and everything. Prince Charles shows how much he cares by the intensity with which he immerses himself in matters. That is my observation anyway. Both of them are/were passionate beings, but had different ways to express themselves. I think Harry might be a bit more like his mother, william a bit more like Dad, or maybe William is a mix, I don't know. It is harder to say with William. He shows elements of both Charles and Diana at varying times. He seems to have the best of both parents DNA going on. I am most impressed with Prince William.

In the documentary Prince Harry in Lesotho, Harry said he was going to financially take care of Liketso, one of the HIV orphans education.

That's awesome. It must mean he will pay for all of the kid's treatment and any surgeries and then schooling. Maybe he "adopted" the kid like we could "adopt" a child in Africa. That is pretty awesome.

Well said!
Like you I remember earlier 'caring' images, long before Diana.

I think it is important to remember that Harry is 50/50 Charles/Diana, as we are all 50/50 our parents DNA. The people who say Harry takes after his mother about the Sentebale/Lesotho pictures are not necessarily saying he gets only his "caring"ness from Diana; I think they mean just that the cause is the same as that which consumed much of Diana's energy: AIDS! AIDS was Diana's pet cause, and helping AIDS babies in Lesotho is the pet cause of Sentebale, and something that Harry learned a lot about from Diana.
It is not said because anyone wants to minimize Charles's influence on him. It is said only to highlight Diana's influence in this one area.
Charles has influenced him in other areas. I believe in giving credit where it is due. I never took sides in the Charles/Diana so-called "wars". I always saw the best in both of them, and I believe now we should give credit where it is deserved.

I also personnally think that the "caring"ness comes from being a royal and having to find "charities" to put your royal mark on because that is what the royals do...charities because that's what keeps them busy behind polo and other personal things they do. They have to do something to be a reason to be in order to live in the palace. Not meaning to sound harsh. It was imminent that Harry found his own charity he can live with the rest of his life. Just my take on the matter.

Harry is more charity oriented then other royals, he went to Africa by himself, not to make some political expression, he went for the life experience.

I don't believe that. As someone pointed out, the Royal Family has always been very charity-minded and very in tune with those kinds of things.

I have had quite a few PM's asking me what a junior watchkeeper does, so because I'm getting lazy in my old age, I'm cheating.

A junior watchkeeper will be working within a very small team evaluating any reports that come in. It is an important job, if you file 'Incident A' because you thought it was insignificant and it turns out to be snafu ....! It is something he will already have studied and would only need a little retraining.

Thank you Skydragon for the information.

To keep the current events threads for current events, I have opened a thread in Members' Corner called Military Questions.

Questions relating to ranks, duties and anything to do with the military that isn't specific to William or Harry's current events should be posted in the new thread.

thanks,
Warren

True, plus Princess Anne went to Africa on behalf of Save the Children long before Prince Harry for Sentebale, long before Diana for the British Red Cross.

Well, since most of Africa is composed of nations started in XXth Century, as a result of independence from various empires, and from the borders imposed by the Vienna Congress -- the former French colonies, the former Dutch, British, and German colonies all coming to "independence" in their various ways in accordance with their various "agreements" with the mother countries -- I suppose the charitable contributions of the royal families of europe in the Continent of Africa are a (late) XXth Century innovation.
The IXXth Century interactions between Africa and Europe were not quite so
"charitable", were they?!

Wasn't the British more "prominent" in the role of a world leader in front of those European countries who had colonies in Africa? Because if that was the case, then the Brits felt more compiled to aid those "colonies" they had once governed. But, doesn't those European countries also do some sort of charities in Africa? I hate to see that the only nations in the world doing charitable work in Africa is the US and UK.

As we are now discussing colonial Africa, we seem to have drifted well away from Prince Harry's current events.

If Harry is deployed over seas, do you think his girl friend will wait for him to come home? Do you think Harry could survive a long distance relationship?

Well considering that from the beginning of their relationship, it's been a long distance one and they're still together after 3 years I think Harry is prefectly capable of surviving a long distance relationship. Chelsy was living in South Africa and Harry in the UK and they saw each other when one or the other visited during their holidays.
