Yes, his enthusiasm, sense of fun and readiness to try everything suggested have really won people over. I think his father and grandmother will be very pleased.

..purple hand print on photographer's balding forehead. That's amusing. Maybe it'll help the photographer have a lighter sense of humor, I doubt it however because he looked mixed about it, like it enraged and humiliated him at the same time, but like he liked it. Peculiar looking old man with a bit of purple paint on his head. That might of increased his stroke risk by quite a few statistical points. I am not sure how funny it was, amusing none the less. I wake up, reflect on how difficult my whole life has been just out of the blue today, blow it off like it's nothing, get online, read the news and the article pops up, reminding me, sometimes the lighter side of things can be a darker shade perhaps only art can express. Perhaps I should express appreciation, however like most things I suppose it is more of a benefit to keep it to ones self. Or perhaps not.

Relatively little coverage in the UK. Most newspaper didn't send anyone to cover the visit and Harry's only front page was in relation to him wanting to 'settle down' and have children.

New Zealanders seemed to enjoy it from what I can gather though so that's the most important thing.

Successful tour indeed! Frankly, I don't remind a tour that Harry did that wasn't successful...

Rob Jobson said on today's canoe trip that Harry practiced his Maori speech the whole way, he was so intent on getting the pronunciation correct.
That's nice. Were there cookies and milk after that or something?

I'd rather watch a confucian, taoist or a buddhist monk. He did alright, he got his point across. He did have that kind of subtle flow like a monk, just enough that it briefly catches my attention. I am real picky like that though. I am glad I am happily wed.

Oh here we got the story on him and the photographer. This is the first I am reading on the military exercise.

I believe the photographer is Arthur Edwards who is a photographer for the Sun and focuses on the British Royal Family. There are a lot of photographers and journalists out there but Edwards is one that has earned the respect of the BRF. He was outside of the Lindo Wing when Charlotte was born and IIRC, Kate even said "Oh look! There's Arthur" and waved.

One thing I've realized about Harry over the years is that he doesn't just get involved in what he's doing, he really jumps into it full steam ahead and really enjoys what he's doing. He's just got that charismatic, easy going nature that draw people to him. Not many would demonstrate an involvement as our Harry does. Example being not only supporting Walking With the Wounded but also joining them in endeavors to reach both the North and South poles and showing the world just how amazing these wounded people really are.

As time passes, I think he's going to be a very important and well received ambassador for the UK representing his grandmother, his father and then eventually his brother.

There are some pretty amazing photos of Prince Harry in action during his five-aside soccer game - he looks like a pro.

And he scored the winning goal just as the match ended.

And Australian TV has just screened a series of photos of Prince Harry helping to wrangle a 3.1metre crocodile that needed re-locating while he was in the Northern Territory a few weeks ago.

The Tourism Industry Association says it will be hard to measure the economic benefit from Prince Harry's visit, but it is unlikely to be as significant as last year's visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son George.

It was a beautiful tour and Harry pulls a great deal of media attraction. The media attraction will become even greater when Harry settles down and gain a fiancee/wife. He will then not only have someone to share the burden of the job, but the media will go crazy for her too.

Was this a tour or a military exercise? I read that it was supposed to be a month long attachment to a military unit but that seems odd since he has decided to leave the military. What would the point be of participating in a special military exercise at the end of his career? Based on his various visits, it seems like it was just another tour.

Australia was a military secondment where he spent a week or so with three different units in the Australian army.


NZ was a regular royal tour doing royal touring type stuff.

I thought it was very juvenile and not a bit funny!
Imagine if someone had done that to Harry; that person would probably be arrested!

I never like so-called pranks against people who for some reason are unable to retaliate.

I think it was done only because there existed a level of knowing each other and perhaps even a friendly rapport that assured this prank would be taken all in good fun.

Did that photographer look like he thought it was good fun?
He looked ready to explode, imo.

Prince Harry's nine days in New Zealand cost Kiwi taxpayers $426,317 - more than three times what it cost Australians to put up "the people's prince" for a month's army exchange.

The Department of Internal Affairs confirmed the six-figure bill for the May trip in a response to an Official Information Act request.

The Prince's Kiwi spend averaged more than $47,000 a day - and it isn't the end of our royal expenditure as Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are due in November.
