PRINCE Harry showed off his cookery skills in an African school yesterday when he joined pupils in a home economics class at a deaf centre in Lesotho.

Harry has travelled to the country to learn first hand about the work of his charity Sentebale, which supports projects throughout the impoverished nation.

At the Kananelo Centre for the Deaf, close to the capital Maseru, he was joined by Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso, who co-founded Sentebale with Harry in 2006.

Inside the centre’s single-storey kitchen, the princes were given aprons – a Paddington Bear-themed one for Harry, with Seeiso donning a feminine white one.

The pair are firm friends, as Seeiso was Harry’s guide during his gap-year visit and they kept up jokey banter throughout.

On the menu was fat cakes – a kind of doughnut –known in the local Sesotho language as makoenya.
