• Prince Harry is the star of the show in Botswana as children unveil tribute TV sets

    As a prominent and popular member of the British royal family, Prince Harry is more than used to television appearances; indeed, his current first joint tour with Prince William has already attracted huge media coverage. And while the 25-year-old royal has often been at the centre of small screen reports, it is unlikely he has ever had a faux TV named in his honour.
