Photo SpecialPrince Harry in Africa
A week after a tabloid columnist branded him "a national disgrace" for his club-hopping ways, Britain's Prince Harry, 19, showed there was more to his life than polo and parties by unveiling his charity work in Lesotho, Africa. Sporting a new 80-cent haircut from a roadside barber, Princess Diana's younger son followed in his mother's footsteps, visiting clinics, helping to build a bridge and embracing locals – including an 11-month-old rape victim. "I have seen some genuine shock and horror on his face," says Lesotho's Prince Seeiso. PEOPLE was there to capture a day with Prince Harry among the impoverished country's orphans.
