Prince Harry Becomes Emotional, Says Death of His Mother Was 'Nothing' Compared to Brazilian Orphan's Tragedy
Prince Harry poses for pictures at the Great Britain reception welcoming him to the country on Wednesday (June 25) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The 29-year-old royal was joined by Alessandra Ambrosio and many others at the big party. Earlier in the day, Prince Harry played sports with kids at the ACER Charity for disadvantaged children after helping planting trees at Cota 200, a small village in the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest.
Prince Harry was almost moved to tears while meeting with some orphans whose mother was tragically murdered and father in jail.
After hearing the story, Prince Harry said the tragic death of his own mother Princess Diana was “nothing” compared to their story.
“I was completely overwhelmed and shocked. I’ve never blubbed in public as far as I can remember but I was pretty damn close,” Prince Harry told reporters. “It was amazing to hear those stories. It seems ridiculous for me to say to these kids how lucky and fortunate they are considering their situation. Obviously they are far from that. But I am only too aware by listening to their stories how many other kids there are like this that aren’t as fortunate as them.”
