'Gentle' Prince Harry poses with rhinos in South Africa

Prince Harry has been pictured for the first time since he left for Africa for a three-month-long "dream job" volunteering for conservation projects. The usually clean-shaven prince showed off a beard as he posed alongside three female volunteers and two rhinos after visiting the Khulula Care for Wild in South Africa to meet some of the centre's orphaned rhinos.The British royal decided to visit the rhino conservation site after hearing about the work of its manager, Petronel Niewoudt, one of the world's leading experts in infant rhino care.

Harry spent more than two hours with the animals and volunteers, helping bottle feed some of the young, reported MailOnline.He also took one of the rhinos, called Warren, on a walk around the premises before taking care of a tiny hippo called Molly. Warren was only three days old when his mother was killed.The 30-year-old was accompanied on the trip by Prince George's godfather and son of the Duke of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor, as well as two bodyguards. Martin Bornman, project manager, said the prince had been "extremely gentle and capable".
