Prince emotional as he meets children burned in Nepal quake

By Tony Jones

Prince Harry has made an emotional visit to a Nepalese hospital treating young burns victims, many badly scarred in accidents following the devastating earthquake.

The prince was clearly moved when he saw youngsters who have suffered terrible injuries in the temporary shelters used to house thousands made homeless after the disaster last year.

Dressed in a blue gown in order to prevent the spread of infections, the prince met children in the burns unit of Kathmandu's Kanti Children's Hospital, supported by the British charity BVS (Burns Violence Survivors) Nepal.

Meanwhile closer to home, Prince Charles returned to survey the recovery process at various locations in Cumbria, three months after he visited flood-hit communities in the wake of Storm Desmond.
