Prince Harry Makes History as He Poses for First Royal Gifs
The Royal Family have truly entered the internet age with Prince Harry creating the first ever royal gifs — and in 3-D — as part of his work with the Full Effect youth program in London.
The 30-year-old Prince visited St Ann’s in Nottingham to see the work of Full Effect, a program supported by his Royal Foundation charity, aimed at reducing youth violence and gang membership, and improving employment opportunities.
As part of the project, young people are trained in media skills and produce broadcast-quality films, including a 30-minute film called Guillemot, the premiere of which the Prince attended.
The film was made by and stars a group of teenagers from St Ann’s in Nottingham, and is a bittersweet tale of young romance set against the backdrop of peer pressure and a non-understanding adult world. It is based on the real-life experiences of the young people involved in the project.
Speaking about Harry’s encouragement, one participant Danny Mulvany, 16, told the Telegraph: “It’s an honor meeting him every time – it’s good. I’ve met him three times now. It definitely means a lot because we haven’t had these things happen for a long time, so for Harry to come back again and show his respect is very good. If you meet him, you’ll know he’s definitely a good guy.”
