City Excited By Prince... Again

No not the pint-sized purple one this time, the red-haired Royal one

Published on October 20th 2014.


City Excited By Prince... Again
 

IT'S less than ten months since the arrival of a Prince sent Manchester into hysteria. People queued for days, paid with organs and bragged for weeks.

It's not the first time the young Prince has met with staff of a Salford fire station. Back in August 2011, Harry took time off from helicopter training to visit staff at an Eccles fire station who'd come under attack as they tackled fires during the riots.

But that was a different Prince.

This Prince, Prince Harry (or Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales), is not a mysterious and lavish pocket-rocket pop superstar with 22 albums, several hundred records and nearly 40 award nominations to his name.

This Prince does, however, have two A-levels from Eton (a B in Art and a D in Geography). He's also been sent to rehab by his Dad, snapped naked in Las Vegas and fought the Taliban - which is fairly rock'n'roll. And he's fourth in line to the throne... Lord 'elp us.

Prince Harry, 30, is visiting Greater Manchester today (Monday 20 October) to teach some ruggers and meet local fire fighters.

As patron of England Rugby's All Schools Programme, an initiative to increase the amount of rugby played in schools, Harry will join a coaching session for young players this afternoon at Eccles RFC in Salford and take part in a teacher training session to show local teachers how to become school rugby coaches.

Harry has become an international advocate of the sport as vice patron of the Rugby Football Union, and was recently named honorary president of England Rugby 2015 in the build-up to next year's Rugby World Cup - taking place in England and Wales).

He also recently took part in a game of 'murderball' (wheelchair rugby) in front of 7,000 fans at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London to launch the Invictus Games - a series of sport events he helped to organise for injured servicemen and women.

Following the coaching session, the Prince will meet fire fighters and young cadets at a Salford fire station.

It's not the first time the young Prince has met with staff of a Salford fire station. Back in August 2011, Harry took time off from helicopter training to visit staff at an Eccles fire station who'd come under attack as they tackled fires during the riots.

After today's visit he'll be heading for a cheese board at Volta in Didsbury, according to the owners.
