Photographer Prince Harry shares stunning personal Nepal snaps

By Ainhoa Barcelona

The Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Madeleine aren't the only royals with a keen interest in photography. Prince Harry has also been snapping away, showing off his artistic skills in a new series of photos released on Kensington Palace's Twitter account.

Talented shutterbug Harry, who took the photos himself, was keen to share some of his best memories with royal watchers. The first photo posted online showed a sweet dog taking in a majestic view from Leorani village.

Harry stayed overnight at a local family's house there as part of his official tour of Nepal, to meet survivors of last year's earthquakes and to pay tribute to the Gurkhas.

Providing his own caption for the photo, Harry wrote: "Found a friend surveying his kingdom! Who can blame him – what a view!"

Another photo taken by Harry was of a gorgeous sunset view. "Living in such dramatic scenery clearly has an effect on the Nepalese – such calm, friendly people," the Prince reflected.

Harry took such a shine to Nepal that he decided to extend his visit by six days. Prince Charles' son has joined Team Rubicon charity to help rebuild a school destroyed by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake of April 2015.

Alongside a group of volunteers, the 31-year-old has trekked into the mountains of central Nepal with his own equipment to assist the local community in all aspects of repairing and rebuilding their school.

Making his surprise announcement on the last day of his official tour at a British Embassy reception, Harry said: "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!"

Of the volunteering opportunity, Harry, who co-founded his own charity Sentebale in Lesotho ten years ago, said: "I'm so grateful to have this opportunity at the end of my official tour to do my small bit to help this beautiful country."

The Prince has previously shared photos from his trip to Lesotho in 2014

This isn't the first time Harry has shared personal photographs from his travels. The creative royal released a set of pictures from his adventure in Lesotho in December 2014, when he met a handful of local children.

"I have always enjoyed photography and the challenges that come with trying to capture the perfect shot, although privately I don't take many photos," said Harry. "The best photos I have are in my head – I have some very special memories, mostly from Africa.

"But on this visit, I had the time and opportunity to be on the other side of the camera and take some photos in the stunning country of Lesotho for my charity Sentebale."
