Prince Harry visited Nottingham Wednesday to meet with young people, and included going to a local police station and recording studio.


First stop on the trip was the Nottingham Police Station, where Harry met with officers and community members to learn about city operations. He met with admirers outside the station, including one particular woman who had met his parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana long ago. Irene Hartman gave Harry Haribo candies, recalling that they were his favorite as a child. “I told Harry I knew from when he was a young boy and I told him, ‘Your mum would have been proud of you,’” the woman said. Among other pleasantries, Harry was gifted a white rose in honor of his mother.

Next on the list of stops was an ice rink that holds programs run by the Coach Core initiative that the Prince founded with his brother Prince William and Princess Kate in 2012.

The last stop on the tour was a recording studio that helps kids by promoting arts education and music programs to keep them out of trouble.

Harry’s visit to Nottingham comes just before he takes off for a 15-day tour of the Caribbean, where he will be traveling to Antigua, Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines on behalf of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
