Prince Harry is the star of the show in Botswana as children unveil tribute TV sets

by hellomagazine.com As a prominent and popular member of the British royal family, Prince Harry is more than used to television appearances; indeed, his current first joint tour with Prince William has already attracted huge media coverage.

And while the 25-year-old royal has often been at the centre of small screen reports, it is unlikely he has ever had a faux TV named in his honour.

During a visit to the Mophane Primary School in Gaborone – capital of Botswana – on Tuesday, Harry was shown a 'television' created from an ice-cream tub embellished with his own name and that of his father, Prince Charles, on either side.

But the biggest tribute went to the prince's Zimbabwe-born girlfriend, who was honoured on the top of the box with the words 'Chelsy Davy TV'.

Closely watched by a classroom of excited six-year-olds, the handsome prince laughed as he picked up the 'set' – used as a reading aide.

He then took his place next to the children to help them as they read out words written on a scrolling piece of paper that appeared on the 'screen'.

Having already shown a very natural affinity for children, Harry received a warm, and very British, welcome as he arrived at the 1038-pupil school.

He was there to see how children are being helped by the British Council's Team Read Project, a scheme already used in primary schools in England and Wales, and now being introduced in Botswana.

Along with his elder brother William, humanitarian Harry is on a six-day tour of southern Africa during which the brothers will visit a number of charity projects close to their hearts in Botswana and Lesotho.

They will make an appearance in Cape Town on Friday to see England's football team take on Algeria in the World Cup.
