Durban beach goers were surprised by a royal guest yesterday as Prince Harry made his way down the beach front to meet locals and find out more about Surfers Not Street Children.  Local photographer CRAIG DOVE from Craig O’Pix was there to capture the moment.

 

The Prince was on an official trip to South Africa and was accompanied by Tom Hewitt, Director of Surfers Not Street Children, the empowerment project for ex-street children entering adulthood.

So far during his trip to southern Africa, the Prince has visited Lesotho and played in the fundraising Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, at Val de Vie in Cape Town on Saturday. The Prince will next visit the Kruger Naitonal Park to draw attention to anti-poaching efforts made to protect South Africa’s engaged wildlife.
