Prince Harry was crowned head of Nepal village
Britain’s Prince Harry was crowned the head of a village in Nepal last night (21.03.16).
The 31-year-old royal – the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip – was put in charge of the small town of Leurani by Mangali Tamang, 86 – the widow of a former Gurkha rifleman – after he trekked over an hour to join them.
According to Sky News, Mrs. Tamang said after making the Prince the head: “I’m very happy. I cried. When I die I can say I talked to the king of a foreign land. I blessed him so that he may live to be 100 years and all his wishes become fulfilled, and where he goes success will follow him.”
The flame-haired hunk was covered with garlands, scarves and a pheta – a white turban-like headdress – to signify his status as the head man, before he broke out into a dance.
He stayed the night in the home of Mrs Tamang to experience life with people living in the foothills of the Himalayas, before leaving the village the following day.
The Prince’s visit is part of his five-day trip to Nepal.
