Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s wedding was one of the most anticipated events of the year. Apart from their friends and family, many other people were invited.

Among them, there were 10 representatives from Harry’s charity Sentebale, including an orphan from the African Kingdom of Lesotho, Mutsu Potsane. According to Express, Harry first met Potsane 14 years ago in the southern African country.

Potsane was 4 and Harry was 19 when the latter went to Mants’ase Children’s Home for orphans near Mohale’s Hoek, outside Lesotho’s capital Maseru, to help young people stricken by an HIV and Aids crisis.

Just as most of the children Harry greeted during his visit, Potsane was vulnerable and he needed someone who cared for him. He learned that Harry was a fun person who even bought him a pair of blue boots that Potsane wore to bed for a long time.

Even though they were separated by many miles, Harry and Potsane stayed in touch and got together a couple of times throughout the years.

The fact that Harry invited him to the wedding proved just how good their relationship is. The chairman of Sentebale, Johnny Hornby, confessed that Potsane, who is finishing school, had a shy personality.

Before the wedding took place, Hornby added that Potsane would be outside St. George’s Chapel among the group of people who would greet the newlyweds.

Hornby pointed out that many people in Lesotho feel grateful for the work that Harry has done through Sentebale and that he could feel the sense of pride that they have with Harry.

He finally revealed that Harry will be going to Lesotho a couple of times this year but that he didn’t know if Meghan would join him.

Sentebale is a charity set up in 2006 by Harry and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso. Not only do they support the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho, but also in Botswana.
