Happy Harry’s dancing in the street

Prince Harry became a rum drinking, street dancing, crowd pleasing royal left dripping with sweat during his first encounter with the people of Belize.
The prince had come to name a street in honour of his grandmother the Queen and to sample the country’s culture as he began his Diamond Jubilee tour in tribute to the monarch.
But he left protocol behind and enthusiastically bonded with the locals during a walkabout at a “block party” staged to celebrate his grandmother’s 60-year reign.
The party prince knocked back shots of rum, played the fool as he sampled local dishes and became King Creole for the night dancing with women and leaving others screaming his name as he went on a walkabout.
He charmed the crowds during a speech joking with a heckler who told him to speak louder and telling the audience it was “stuck” with him representing the Queen.
And he did not seem too mind when Simeon Lopez, the mayor of the capital Belmopan, referred to him by his father’s title, the Prince of Wales.
When the third-in-line to the throne took the hand of Denese Enriquez, 36, who was part of a Kriol, sometimes known as Creole, performance he told her: “Let’s dance a little bit – not too much.”
Dressed in a traditional Belize shirt, a gift from the governor general Sir Colville Young, Harry twirled the creative arts development officer who performed a “bruk dong bram” with the royal.
The pair shimmied as the crowds watched but Miss Enriquez later confessed that at one moment “he lost me there with his move”.
But she praised Harry, saying “he was just smiling which was great because it looked like he was enjoying himself”, and said her friends would be impressed when she told them who her dance partner was. “They will probably be dumbstruck,” she added.
