Prince Harry Busts a Move for Charity

By on Thursday, 20th October 2011

Prince Harry starred in his own celebrity dance challenge on Sunday night, agreeing to strut his stuff at a telethon concert after donors pledged an extra 2,000 dollars for Haiti.

News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports the dancing royal was spotted earlier in the day falling off his horse during a polo game in Barbados, another charity event organized by the prince for Haiti.

Harry hopes it will be an annual match to raise money for Lesotho – one of the poorest countries in Africa, where he spent time as a teenager.

“I think what he really wants is to be an ordinary person, but he does know that by being a prince, his charity work has such a high profile,” says royal watcher Ingrid Seward, “and he’s also able to raise such a lot of money for his charity.”

Touring a hospital named after his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, Harry showed the same ease and genuine affection for people – especially children – that his late mother, Princess Diana did.

“William and I will always try and achieve what she achieved in the short space of time that she did,” said Harry.

As third in line to the throne, Prince Harry will probably never be Head of State, but he’s brushing up his skills to excel in the other time-honored royal role; drawing money and attention to good causes.
