Prince Harry kept awake by barking dog
Britain’s Prince Harry was kept awake all night by a barking dog in Nepal on Thursday (24.03.16).
The 31-year-old royal – who has just extended his trip to the South Asian country by another six days – has struck up a close bond with a chunky pooch after he ruined his sleep.
Taking to the Kensington Palace official Twitter account this morning (25.03.16), he uploaded a photo of the four-legged creature gazing out into the distance, along with the caption: “Found a friend surveying his kingdom! Who can blame him – what a view! He barked ALL night outside our homestay and kept me awake, but we moved past that! (sic)”
The flame-haired hunk – the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip – arrived in Nepal last Saturday and had initially planned to stay five days but fell in love with the people, culture and scenery so decided to stay longer in order to work on a charity project, which aims to rebuild a school destroyed by last year’s earthquake in the Himalayas.
He said of his decision to stay longer: “The people I have met and the beauty of this country make it very hard to leave. Thankfully however, I’m not leaving just yet.
“I’m so grateful to have this opportunity at the end of my official tour to do my small bit to help.”
The Prince will camp with a group of volunteers in a remote village in central Nepal as he works alongside Rubicon UK – a disaster response charity which uses the skills and experience of military veterans to deploy emergency response teams – over the next few days.
The disaster last April claimed 9,000 lives, largely in rural areas, and left many people without homes and belongings.
