Watch The Heartwarming Moment Prince Harry Spots African Orphan In Wedding Crowd

Prince Harry oncemore won the hearts of the nation on Saturday when he invited an African orphan that he bonded with 14 years ago to his wedding.

Now, a video has emerged showing the heart-warming moment that Harry spots Mutsu Potsane in the crowd outside St George's Chapel.

The Duke of Sussex went to Lesotho in 2004 for a two-month trip, where he worked with an orphanage and tried to raise awareness to the world that the African country was struggling with AIDS, poverty and drought.

It was there that he met Mutsu, who was just four at the time, and the duo were pictured hanging out together, planting a tree and being pretty good mates.

Sentebale, a charity set up by Prince Harry, has tweeted a picture of Mutsu, albeit all grown up, standing outside the chapel in Windsor.

Also attending from Lesotho was Prince Seeiso and Princess Mabereng, who said: "The young Harry who first arrived in Lesotho in 2004 is now a grown man getting married.

"I've come here with all the wishes of Lesotho, I'm not here on my own behalf I'm here representing the entire nation who are so happy."

Charity chairman Johnny Hornby told the Daily Express: "[Mutsu's] a bit shy now, but he's doing really well. He's just finishing school."

They were pictured most recently two years ago before the boy performed with the Basotho Youth Choir in the UK.

The 18-year-old was one of 2,460 members of the public who were handed a Golden Ticket to stand in the garden directly outside St George's Chapel to greet Harry and Meghan and they also got to watch their first kiss as a married couple.

Those invited were, according to the Daily Mail, charity, workers, local volunteers, community heroes and people who have 'made their cities, towns and villages a better place to live'.

While they might not have got an inside look at the whole ceremony, they did get to walk away with a goodie bag, which reportedly contained a giant chocolate coin, a tin of shortbread, a fridge magnet, a bottle of branded Windsor Castle water and a wedding programme.

Oh, and a voucher for 20 percent off in the castle shop - cheeky.
