And once again he demonstrated that he has a way with children.
That's a priceless thing to have.

Yes indeed. The teacher at the school described him as being like his mother in having that gift.

Rather a nice article about Harry and the turtles on Lovers Beach. He was really concerned about the baby turtles and began 'guiding' them to the sea!

Harry is really shining. He is winning kids left and right, and adults.stopping the car to get out and talk to kids probably made their year

Considering his passion. For conservation and work in Africa, it's great to see him experiencing it in his grandmothers realms. I loved reading about him and the turtles, and seeing the frigate birds. I would love to see him take a more active role in conservation back home

The thing that bothers me most about the pm comments about Meghan, we are going to have them dredged up got the est if the trip.

I agree with you that Harry is shining and in his element on this tour. He shows a genuine enthusiasm for whatever comes across his path.

I do think we're going to see Harry quite active in conservation from here on out. He's an ambassador for the Royal Foundation's United for Wildlife and like everything else Harry gets involved in, I don't think he'll be taking this role half heartedly.

Harry performs a Royal engagement at Government House on St Kitts. This is the second such investiture he's performed on this tour.

I can totally picture Harry in the boat and loving it. We know he misses being active duty. It's not the same, but eating in the mess hall and being treated as one of the guys, even in the captains room, is likely great for him.

He most certainly has a good adventurous spirit and with that being part of his makeup, it steers him towards realizing that every person and every place has wonders to reveal to him. He kind of has the attitude that strangers are friends he just hasn't met yet and each stranger has the potential to make his life more fulfilling. Even the little ones remind him that its OK to express your inner child and enjoy life and he does that with gusto.

This man is going to be one the biggest assets for the BRF in the years to come.

Osipi, I agree that Harry does have the attitude towards strangers that you described. I can just imagine him enjoying the company of the crew, asking questions and having a joke or two. The only down-side would be the lack of facilities for the Internet and mobile phone. It would have been great for Harry to have described his adventures and the people he met to friends, day by day, but I suppose you can't have everything!

According to Richard Palmer Harry is struggling in that tropical heat (damp and sticky I suppose) but otherwise is on top form, being charming, fun and full of banter.

It was lovely that the Governor General gave him poetry of her country in a beautiful case, anyway, even if he's hardly likely to read it to Meghan or anyone else. The members of the BRF always give underwhelming official presents like signed photos. Several of them are artistically talented. Why not a nice painting or a photograph taken by themselves of English woodlands or something?

I hope these Investitures are recorded in the CC because the earlier two on this tour haven't been, apparently.

I've always thought too that the British royals could be a little bit more inventive when it comes to giving official gifts during state visits. I always thought too that it was probably just me that thought giving a signed photograph is kind of on that tacky side and something you would expect from a celebrity or a rock star or something that people would keep to "prove" they met so-and-so.

The book of poetry will probably go into the royal vaults along with other gifts received by the British royals on various tours and state visits and catalogued. You're absolutely right though. I do not really picture Harry as the type that would enjoy sitting and reading poetry. The spooning bananas sound much more like what would come from Harry.

Harry enjoys a game of cricket in St Lucia.

I've never been fond of coconut, fresh or otherwise, myself, though I'm sure it's refreshing in heat. Harry's getting good crowds.

His answer about being a royal is really one of the best answers I've heard given regarding that type of question. No self pity involved.

Out of all the possible responses to what its like to be royal, what Harry responded with on the spur of the moment really shows how he sees it and shows that making a difference is a big thing on his mind when it comes to where his life is headed.

That really is a big perk of being born royal. You do actually get the platform to make a difference in the world on a silver platter so to speak rather than have to work your way up a ladder to attain the public face that people respond to.

Yes it was and I hope it gave the schoolkids an understanding of his and other royals' roles.
