Britain’s Prince Harry begins 5-day official trip to Nepal
KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Britain’s Prince Harry has begun a five-day official trip to Nepal, meeting with the prime minister and attending a ceremony to mark 200 years of relations between the two nations.
Hundreds of people cheered as the 31-year-old prince came out of Kathmandu’s airport Saturday.
He later met Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Oli at his official residence and attended a ceremony hosted by Nepal’s government.
During his trip, Harry will tour areas hit by last year’s devastating earthquake and visit a camp for displaced quake survivors. People are hoping his visit will draw attention to Nepal’s struggle to recover from the disaster.
The prince will also stay with a family that includes men who served in the British army’s famed Gurkha regiments, the unit that Harry served with in Afghanistan.A man with Great Heart and Impressive Personality. An Unreal Royal Prince Harry
