Britian’s Prince Harry is in South Africa and spent some time on Tuesday at the Growth Point Kings Park stadium playing rugby with the Sharks and the KwaZulu Natal Rugby Union Hotspots coaching clinic.

He was met by eThekwini deputy mayor Nomvuso Tshabalala and Sharks CEO John Smit before striding along the red carpet to a private briefing inside the stadium.

Having dispatched with the formalities, Prince Harry, who unlaced his bright blue trainers and pulled of his socks to play barefoot, quickly got stuck in assisting and interacting with kids from Inanda and Umlazi. After milling around the field passing on advice and chatting with Smit, he decided it was game time.

His Royal Highness captained one team and Smit the other. Following the coaching clinic, the prince headed out to a local surf house to chat to underprivileged kid surfers before joining them for a session at a local beach.
