Prince Harry is currently on a tour of Brazil
Prince Harry is currently sunning himself in Brazil - but it's not all play and no work for the fourth in line to the throne.
He was set to visit the Atlantic Rainforest that surrounds the city of Sao Paulo as part of his royal tour, followed by a trip to a community centre in the area that supports underprivileged children and adults.
The forest, which has been described as an extraordinary cultural and historical resource, is home to hundreds of trees and thousands of plant species.
Here Harry was set to learn about initiatives to preserve the ecosystem - one of which is trying to re-house a number of communities that live in the area to help protect the rainforest and allow new saplings to be planted.
He was also set to tour a nearby community centre, joining local youngsters in a game of football, before attending the traditional Queen's birthday party - celebrating the monarch's official anniversary - at the Brazilian British Centre in Pinheiros.
Harry was expected to meet and chat with some of the 400 or so guests, including representatives from the worlds of business, government, education and the arts, and deliver a short speech to mark the special occasion.
He was also expected to be shown an exhibition of Beatles memorabilia at the centre - part of the venue's features to promote the 'Great' campaign, an initiative that aims to promote the UK across the globe on the back of London 2012 and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
So far on his tour of Brazil, the 29-year-old has watched England take on Costa Rica in the international football tournament and has also seen where Team GB athletes will be based during the 2016 Olympics.
