‘Surprisingly shy’ Prince Harry
Britain’s Prince Harry is “surprisingly shy”.
Although the 31-year-old royal is known for his partying and charming personality, his close friend Joss Stone admitted he is “actually quite shy”.
Asked if she could convince him to get up on stage and dance at his charity concert for Sentebale at Kensington Palace on Tuesday (28.06.16), she told the Daily Mail: “Last time I was singing in Lesotho he started a conga line so I wouldn’t put it past him. He’s a fun human being. He’s very sweet and rather shy too, though.”
Joss – who is an ambassador for Sentebale – also praised Harry and his older brother William for their charity work.
She said: “As a nation I think we should be very proud of them. They have become amazing young men. Thank God they are doing things the way that they are.
“What Harry is doing is something beautiful. That’s pretty cool.”
The Basotho Youth Choir, made up of children and teenagers aged between seven and 19, travelled from Lesotho to perform at the charity concert and Joss helped them to rehearse.
Harry joined her for a sneak peek at rehearsals and Joss revealed her delight at being part of the special occasion.
She said: “They are doing two songs from Lesotho, which are amazing and I’ll sing with them.
“When it’s on your doorstep it’s much more emotional and has a bigger effect – it will be harder to forget about.
“It’s a nice trip for the kids – that’s the best thing. It’s brilliant that they are getting to go on holiday. It will be very exciting for them.
“When I came up to see Buckingham Palace aged eight or nine, I will never forget that, and I’m English.
“We are so blessed; we have a magical land of fairytaledom.”
