Prince Harry is charming everyone in Nepal.
The handsome 31-year-old royal recently visited the country for the first time, which is still recovering from last year's devastating earthquakes. Harry said Nepal holds a "special place," and also mentioned his mother, the late Princess Diana, who paid a visit to the South Asian country in 1993.
"I am honored and excited to be here," he said in a welcome speech on Saturday, according to The Telegraph. "Many members of my family have visited Nepal, including my father and my mother, who were both warmly welcomed."
"For me, this trip is also personal," he added. "I am so grateful that I will have the opportunity to pay tribute to some of Nepal's most famous ambassadors, the Gurkhas, admired the world over for their fearsome bravery and courage but also for their humility and kindness."
Highlights of Harry's five-day trip so far have been his visit to the Golden Temple in Kathmandu, where he put a smile on the ladies' faces.
And Harry looked right at home, wearing the traditional garb.
On Sunday, Harry visited the Red Cross preparedness containers at Bhaktapur, and helped with the restoration of Patan Palace, which was damaged in the April 2015 earthquake that killed more than 8,000 people.
Harry also took time out to tour a municipal camp for families displaced by the earthquake, listening to their stories.
But Harry also had a little fun in Nepal on Monday, when he was given the honor of being "village head man," and wore a pheta turban to celebrate the honor.
And then there's the time he hilariously pretended to be a tiger in order to set off cameras, when he was shown tiger traps at Bardia National Park.
... But still managed to look like a male model while doing so.
Last week, Harry opened up about his mother on Good Morning America, revealing that he thinks she would have cherished her relationship with Prince William's children and his own future offspring.
"I hope she's looking down with tears in her eyes, being incredibly proud of what we've established, I suppose," Harry told GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts of his mom, who died when he was 12 years old. "I'm sure she's longing for me to have kids so she can be a grandmother again."
