Harry decided to take a gap year between finishing his A levels and starting work.
He has spent three months working on a ranch in southern Queensland, Australia. He learnt how to handle cattle and repair damaged fences - the basic skills for a "jackeroo" or cattle-hand.
He is also travelled and worked in southern Africa.
He went to the little-known African mountain kingdom of Lesotho where he visited an orphanage for children with Aids.
The prince also helped build a clinic and road bridge during his trip to Lesotho.
