London, July 13 (ANI): His late mother Diana, Princess of Wales was well-known for her love for kids and now Britains Prince Harry displayed the same skills when he spent time with abused children in the African kingdom of Lesotho.

The 23-year-old prince, an officer in the Household Cavalry Regiment, visited the new headquarters of a home for child victims of sexual and physical attacks.

The third in line to the throne got down on his hands and knees to chat to the delighted youngsters.

I hope she would be proud of me, the Telegraph quoted the price, as saying.

The children’’s charity, Sentebale, established in Lesotho two years ago, contributed a third of the 100,000 pounds cost of the new home which will become a national centre for assessment and treatment of abused children.

“It’’s a fantastic building, especially compared to what they were last in,” he said.

The prince quickly became a playmate for four-year-old Mojabeng, who came to the centre after being abandoned by her parents.

Harry pushed her around the courtyard on a tricycle over and over again before pleading No more Im exhausted!

Then the prince joined a four-year-old boy called Molise, playing with a mini ghetto blaster. (ANI)
