Prince Harry Goes Fishing, Gets Serenaded, Turns Down a Kiss (All in One Outing!)

Posted on

Prince Harry was treated to a group serenade on Tuesday – and then propositioned for a peck.

“Can I give you a kiss, sir?” asked a smiling woman as he made a trip to northwest England to promote youth sports.

Harry diplomatically turned down the offer, giving her a handshake instead.

Upon his arrival, a group of women waited patiently at the gates of a youth sports charity and sung their own unique version of the Andy Williams song, “I Can’t Take My Eyes off You.”

Asked if he liked their song, he made a “so-so” motion with his arms in a moment captured by ITV reporter Sarah Rogers and referred to singer Gareth Malone (who led the Invictus choir at the prince’s Paralympic-style games in Orlando in May).

It was part of a day touring the area to support projects that promote sports as a means for social development.

Last month, he was in Stockport, near Manchester, checking on some games to inspire kids to play rugby as he builds his experience and knowledge.

On Tuesday he visited Cast North West’s indoor angling center, which helps enhance the employability and educational opportunities of disadvantaged young people.

Touring the angling center, he tried his hand at fishing with a net – and came up with at least one silvery catch.

Outside, he carried out that most typical of royal duties: digging in a new tree. “We’re good at planting trees,” he quipped.

Later he headed to The Three Sisters’ Racing Circuit, where the Blair Project creates motorsport projects that inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and digital industries.

His last stop was to Wigan Youth Zone which says it is the country’s largest youth club, It provides a safe, affordable and engaging venue for over 5,000 young people. There, among more than 20 activities, young people can learn cooking, hairdressing skills and music production.
