    Just imagine looking out of your window and seeing Prince Harry running around the block. Well, that’s exactly what some lucky North London residents would have been able to see from their living rooms yesterday.

    Prince Harry took part in a 17-minute run around Willesden with some friends from The Running Charity, an organisation which works to support homeless young people through sport. Claude Umuhire, a programme co-ordinator for the charity, said that the prince found the whole exercise rather easy, according to the BBC.

    ‘He didn’t find any of it hard, I think he’s been in training for today,’ he said. ‘He found everything easy. I tried to get him in the warm up but he did pretty well, he kept giving me looks though every time I said five squats.’

    Locals were of course stunned to see Prince Harry running around their neighbourhood (as you would be). Claude added: ‘There was a woman who was pulling out of her driveway then she realised who he was and she drove in front of us and started taking pictures of him.

    ‘And as we were leaving, there was a guy at the traffic lights who looked across and did a double take – The joy in his face it was so funny, his eyes just opened up, he was so happy.’

    The run lasted for 17 minutes around the streets of Willesden

    There was also a very sweet moment in which the prince recreated a picture of his late mother, Princess Diana, with the staff of The Running Charity.

    The whole thing is yet another reason to love Prince Harry (like we needed one).
