Prince Harry Reunites With Friend While Opening Children's Center
While opening a center for children affected by HIV and AIDS, Prince Harry reunited with a boy he first met in the country 11 years prior.
Prince Harry visited Lesotho in southern Africa on Thursday to open The Mamohato Children's Centre. And in the process, Harry became a part of a heartwarming, real-life #tbt.
Photographers captured images of Harry embracing a 15-year-old boy with whom he developed a relationship 11 years ago.
Ahead of the reunion, Kensington Palace posted photos on Instagram showing the two walking hand-in-hand during previous meetings. And there's this: a letter the boy wrote to Harry last year, which says, in part, "I am writing this letter because I think of the time [we] were together."
During the dedication of the children's center, Harry said that he and the boy share a special relationship that comes from tragic losses.
Harry said the death of his mother helped him empathize with others who had experienced the loss of loved ones. The 15-year-old boy was orphaned when his parents died of AIDS, which is a major problem in Lesotho.
The children's center was built specifically for the 15-year-old boy and others like him who were orphaned due to AIDS. The center cost £2 million to build and will help care for children living with and affected by HIV.
