Prince Harry took his beard to Africa this week, and when he wasn't busy falling off of horses, he was hanging out with surfers, tossing around a rugby ball, and playing soccer. Sorry, football.
On his third day of the trip, the royal little brother visited the Football for Hope Centre in Cape Town, South Africa, where he cheered on children playing soccer — sorry — then got in on some of the action himself.
Then took a break.
And eventually gave up and switched to rugby.
The next day, he managed to make it to the beach to hang out with some surfing children. But instead of partaking, he mainly stuck with perfecting the art of looking dapper with beard.
