Here Are Photos of Prince Harry Covered in Paint and Flowers to Remind You That There’s Some Good in Life
Is it Coachella? Nope, just Holi.
Prince Harry was all smiles as he celebrated Holi, a popular Hindu festival, while visiting Nepal on Tuesday (Mar. 22, 2016). The 31-year-old was given wreaths upon wreaths of flowers when he stopped by Gauda Secondary School, an earthquake-damaged school being reconstructed with assistance from the Gurkha Welfare Scheme, at a Himalayan village. After a rousing round of volleyball with the local schoolchildren, Harry was covered in powder red paint as part of the Festival of Colors ceremony.
That same day, the British royal followed his mother’s footsteps by attended a tree-planting ceremony at the Gurkha headquarters. In 1993, Princess Diana had planted a another tree at the British Gurkha Camp in Kathmandu in 1993.
“I hope that a lot of my mother’s talents are shown in a lot of the work that I do,” he said in a recent interview with Robin Roberts of ABC. “I hope she’s looking down, you know, with tears in her eyes, being incredibly proud of what we’ve established, I suppose.”
“I hope that everything we do privately and officially, that it makes her proud,” he continued. “I think losing your mother at such a young age does end up shaping your life massively. Of course, it does, and now I find myself trying to be there and give advice to other people who are in similar positions.”
Don’t mind our tears. Someone’s just cutting up onions in our office.
