A recap to Harry's last visit to Nepal

Harry's official visit Nepal three years ago marked the bicentenary of the Nepal-UK relationship. He also travelled to regions affected by the devastating 2015 earthquake.

He extended his five-day trip to help a disaster response charity rebuild an earthquake-destroyed school, spending an extra six days eating, sleeping and working with Team Rubicon UK volunteers in a remote village of Gorkha.

The duke had long wanted to visit the country due to his admiration and respect for the Gurkha troops he served with in Afghanistan.

He attended a wreath-laying ceremony for fallen Gurkha soldiers at the British Gurkha Camp in Pokhara, Nepal.

He also trekked in the foothills of the Himalayas, spending the night with a Nepalese family in their home in the rural village of Leorani, and watched the sun rise over the mountains.

At a reception hosted by Britain's Ambassador to Nepal, Richard Morris, at his official residence in Kathmandu, Harry said of his trip: "The people I have met and the beauty of this country make it very hard to leave."
