Prince Harry Reunites With Special Wedding Guest Mutsu Potsane
Get ready for your heart to explode and in the best of ways.
Scoring a ticket to the wedding of the year -- Hello, Harry and Megs -- was practically impossible. In fact, it was like winning a golden ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
One lucky guest who managed to snag an invitation to the glittering affair, however, was Harry's longtime friend Mutsu Potsane, the child the prince befriended during his gap year stay in the African kingdom of Lesotho in 2004.
The Duke of Sussex, who tied the knot with Megan Markle in a star-studded ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor on May 19, originally met Mutsu, then aged four, while volunteering at the Mants'ase Children's Home for Orphans -- a place for youngsters with HIV and AIDS.
Harry and the youngster bonded instantly. Playing games and having fun, the 19-year-old prince became somewhat of an older brother to the boy and the pair became inseparable.
Matsu, now 18, was part of an ensemble of 10 representatives from Harry's charity Sentebale, which he co-founded in 2006 to give back to the nation and help children and young people in Lesotho and Botswanna.
Taking to Instagram, Sentebale shared their warm wishes for the newlyweds posting, "Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, from everyone at Sentebale! We were delighted that some of the team were able to join in the very special celebrations in Windsor."
Lesotho -- also known as the 'Mountain Kingdom' -- was among the 53 commonwealth nations to be incorporated into Meghan's exquisite five-metre floral-embroidered veil.
Prince Seeiso of Lesotho -- with whom Harry established his charity -- congratulated the new Duke and Duchess on their nuptials and said he hopes the pair will visit the African country in the near future.
"The young Harry who first arrived in Lesotho in 2004 is now a grown man getting married," he said.
It was important to Harry and Megs that their wedding would be all-inclusive, and in addition to Sentebale, the couple also invited people from a range of charities, as well school kids, community members of Windsor Castle and members of the general public.
In a rather touching moment, Harry's love for Lesotho was captured on TV as he waved to the Sentebale well-wishers when he arrived at St. George's Chapel on his wedding day. And then again later, Mutsu and his colleagues were among the first group to greet the newlyweds following their nuptials.
