Prince Harry continues to honor those who serve.

The 31-year-old royal visited the flood-affected area of Lancashire in England on Friday, where he met and joked with soldiers sent to aid with the crisis.

"If it's not raining, it's not training, as they say," Harry told the soldiers, a well-known adage in the rain-heavy country.

"It's been an emotional month for you," added the prince, acknowledging the tireless efforts of the soldiers dealing with what was the rainiest December on record for the area.

Harry also met and entertained children in the flood-stricken region.

The royal palace posted an Instagram, writing, "Whilst visiting St Michael's on Wyre in Lancashire today, Prince Harry chatted to local residents about the impact that the recent flooding has had on the village. He met Winnie, 97, who has lived in St Michael's since she was 14. She has experienced a number of floods in the past and spoke to Prince Harry about how the local community always comes together in times of need."

Of course, giving back is nothing new for Harry.
