Prince Harry spent his Friday morning playing football with kids and proving he is, without a doubt, the fun uncle.
“Prince Harry will visit a summer holiday activity session in Newham this morning, which is part of the @StreetGames #FitAndFed campaign,” Kensington Palace tweeted along with a photo of the handsome prince.
The account then offered several follow-up tweets showing that Harry didn’t just visit the play session in London’s Central Park, he got involved in the fun.
Fit and Fed, a British non-profit organization, sponsored the children’s handball match. The organization strives to prevent summer boredom and provide healthy meals to children in need.
Harry was not easy with young children. Photographers caught him swinging around his laughing playmates, using his height as an advantage for high throws and quickly darting away from his competitors.
If these photos are any indication, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have many years of loss ahead of them to Uncle Harry.
Harry, a humanitarian like his late mother Diana, loves sports but he also cares deeply about the Fit and Fed cause.
Fit and Fed reminds the London community that for some children summer is not all fun and games. According to Kensington Palace, “up to 3 million children in the UK are at risk of going hungry” during the summer holidays when they no longer receive school meals.
The campaign brings back a light summer spirit to these children. And, during Harry’s visit, we can see that happiness on every child’s face.
