Prince Harry isn’t just a prince! He’s the head of a Nepalese village too!
A remote Nepalese village made Prince Harry (or Prince Henry of Wales) its the honorary head when he spent a night with the Gurkha community.
Villagers from Leurani crowned Harry with a pheta—a white turban-like headdress which is worn by the village head.

The prince visited the village to experience life with people in the foothills of the Himalayas.
The prince also visited Bardia National Park—home to 50-100 tigers, along with elephants and rhinos. It is believed that the park gave him a grand welcome which involved animals as well.
Harry and his brother William are known for their efforts to curb the illegal trading of animal parts especially tiger skins, elephant tusks and rhino horns in Southeast Asia.
Harry, who is on his first official visit to Nepal, also met the survivors of the earthquakes of April-May, 2015, which killed nearly 9,000 people.
He also discussed the topic of climate change with Nepal’s president and visited the sites hit by the quakes.
