Prince Harry's two day visit to Singapore has come to an end. In the short time he was there, the prince packed in plenty. He spoke to young people about mental health and saw a quick and easy way to test for HIV. Harry also played polo and supported his charity, Sentebale. But it was also a trip touched by sadness as the prince led a minute's silence in remembrance of those killed in the terror attack in London on Saturday night. Here's a look back at Harry in Singapore.




Harry began his visit to Singapore on June 4th 2017 when he was welcomed to the High Commissioner's Residence, Eden Hall.








First on the agenda was a chat with workers from Action for AIDS Singapore and a tour of a van which provides quick and easy access to HIV testing around the country.  He took tea with them, too, to hear more about their work.


Harry was greeted by traditional drummers and saw a silat display as his trip to Singapore got well and truly under way. The prince also sat down to a breaking the fast meal, iftar, with the Muslim community.


Day two saw Harry take to the polo field in support of his charity, Sentebale. The prince founded the organisation with his friend, Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, to help vulnerable children and those with HIV/ AIDS. Before the match started, Harry took part in a minute's silence to honour those killed in the terror attack in London on June 3rd 2017.



The polo match itself was a celeb filled affair with stars including Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt watching on.  Prince Harry gave a speech at the dinner after the match in which he emphasised the importance of treating 'mind and body together'.  Prince Harry is now heading to Sydney where he'll be involved in the official launch of the city's 2018 Invictus Games programme.
