14 years after befriending a four-year-old boy, Mutsu, in Lesotho, Africa, Prince Harry still remembered him and had him over for his wedding with Meghan Markle.

Sentebale, a charity organization established by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, took to Twitter to share a photograph which revealed an all-grown-up Mutsu attending the royal wedding, posing outside the chapel in Windsor.

During his travels to Lesotho in 2004, Harry worked with an orphanage to raise awareness to the world about the issues of AIDS, poverty, and drought that plagued the African country. It during this visit that he grew close with Mutsu.

The boy was even pictured hanging out with the Prince, with one picture showing the two of them planting a tree together.

During the royal wedding, the 18-year-old Mutsu was one of the 2,460 members of the public who were invited and had the Golden Ticket to stand in the garden directly outside St. George's Chapel.

Alongside him, 52-year-old Prince Seeiso and Princess Mabereng also attended the event. The Prince of Lesotho said of Harry prior to the wedding, "The young Harry who first arrived in Lesotho in 2004 is "a grown man getting married," as reported by Daily Mail.

He further said of the event, "I've come here with all the wishes of Lesotho, I'm not here on my own behalf I'm here representing the entire nation who are so happy."

The online news source also informed that other people who were invited to the wedding were people belonging to various charities, workers, local volunteers, community heroes, and people who have 'made their cities, towns, and villages a better place to live.'

These attendees did not get a chance to observe the entire ceremony going on inside, but they left with goodie bags containing a giant chocolate coin, a tin of shortbread, a fridge magnet, a bottle of branded Windsor Castle water, and 20 percent discount voucher on castle shop.
