HARRY'S HEART OF GOLD: Prince Harry met an orphan boy in Africa 14 years ago, guess where he was over the weekend
Prince Harry invited special friend he met 14 years ago to attend his and Meghan's wedding that took place on May 19.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's guest list consisted some of the big names from the industry but among all of them, there was one person who was really important to Harry himself and it was Mutsu Potsane. Mutsu was a special friend that Harry made in 2004 when he visited Africa.

Harry went for a two-month trip and worked with an orphanage along with which he tried to raise awareness to the world that Lesotho was struggling with AIDS, poverty, and drought. It was during this that Harry met Mutsu. Mutsu was just 4 when he met Harry and the two grew a bond that is strong even after all these years. Mutsu was one of the ten representatives from Harry's charity Sentebale.
The charity also shared a picture of him from the event and without any doubt, Mutsu looked dashing in his blue suit. In fact, even among the many spectators who were present outside the castle, Harry managed to spot Mutsu among them. Mutsu was spotted waving excitedly at Harry and the Duke of Sussex was seen showcasing the same gesture as he waved back.
Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, from everyone at @Sentebale 🎉 We were delighted that some of our Lesotho team were able to join in the very special celebrations in Windsor today! #SentebaleCelebrates #RoyalWedding pic.twitter.com/DQ6Gwsl1ri— @Sentebale (@Sentebale) May 19, 2018
Harry co-founded the charity Sentebale along with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006. The name of the charity means 'forget me not' and tries its best to provide to the need of the people. Prince Seeiso who attended the wedding along with his wife, Princess Mabereng could not believe how much Harry had grown.
"The young Harry who first arrived in Lesotho in 2004 is now a grown man getting married," he told according to Daily Mail. "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." Charity chairman Johnny Hornby told the Daily Express: "Mutsu's a bit shy now, but he's doing really well. He's just finishing school."
Prince Harry and Mutsu have recently reunited two years ago when he performed with the Basotho Youth Choir in the UK. Mutsu, who is now 18 was one among the 2,460 members of the public who were given the opportunity to attend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding which was held on May 19.
