Showed his practical side by fixing a family TV while visiting their home in the hillside
of El Vergel
He has been to war zones, flown helicopters and been known to enjoy a late night party.
But to one family in
, Prince Harry will always be
known as the man who fixed their telly. Chile
On a visit to a slum outside the former capital,
Valparaiso, the Prince showed his practical side by
mending the family’s television just in time for them to watch the Brazil v match in the World Cup Chile
The Prince was in the village of El Vergel, one of the many slums that cling to the hillsides overlooking the city, to see how the community is being rebuilt following a forest fire in April that destroyed nine in ten of the self-made homes.
The charity Techo is helping the villagers to build new homes out of chipboard and corrugated iron, and inside one of the shacks, home to Coca Perez, 50, and her teenaged son and daughter, the Prince noticed their television was not working properly.
