Prince Harry pretended to be tiger during Nepal visit
Britain’s Prince Harry pretended to be a tiger when he visited a national park in Nepal yesterday (20.03.16).
The 31-year-old royal dropped to all fours and imitated the big cat in order to see how the camera trap – designed to capture the animals’ nocturnal movements – works after it failed to pick up any real tiger footprints over night.
The Prince, who arrived in Nepal, south Asia on Saturday (19.03.16), visited the park to learn about its wildlife programmes on day three of his five-day trip to the country.
Just hours before that, Harry stopped by Patan Durbar Square, a World Heritage Site featuring a royal palace and temples that were damaged in the quake, to see first-hand how one of Nepal’s cultural treasures is being restored.
He then went on to visit a temporary camp – which was sheltering around 250 people, who were made homeless by the tragedy, at the time – and was given a tour by a teenaged boy who still lives there with his family.
On Saturday – the first day of his tour – the flame-haired hunk met with the survivors of last year’s tragic earthquakes, which killed nearly 9,000 people, as he praised them on their determination to pull through the devastating quake.
Speaking in Kathmandu at a government reception to mark the start of his five-day visit, the Prince said: “I’m sure you hear this all the time, but your country holds a special place in the imagination for so many people. I pay my respects to those who perished and hope to do what I can to shine a spotlight on the resilience of the Nepali people.”
