Prince Harry’s visit to Dubai may have only been brief, but the royal found time to visit the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Denise Van Outen revealed 29-year-old Harry told her he had visited the 830-metre high skyscraper before attending the Sentebale Forget-me-not dinner.
The television personality was one of the 300 guests at the fundraising event which hoped to raise money for the Prince’s charity, Sentebale, which he co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006.
“Harry told me had wanted to do a simulated sky dive during the day but was too tired after flying in from Sydney, so he spent some time relaxing in the hotel spa,” Denise told the magazine.
“However, he did manage to reach the top of the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world.”
Harry had arrived in Dubai just hours after making a two-day visit to Australia. The fourth-in-line made his first official visit down under to mark the Navy’s International Fleet Review.
Harrymania gripped Sydney as thousands gathered to catch a glimpse of the cheerful royal. The Prince took part in a brief meet and greet with the public before boarding the HMAS Leeuwin to inspect the flotilla at Sydney’s Garden Island naval base.
One boy gave Harry a toy koala, perhaps a gift for twelve-week-old nephew Prince George.
