The children of the Bustamante Hospital for Children were quite excited to spend time with their 'hero' Shaggy and Prince Harry in the Learning Activity Centre.

Prince Harry's stop at the Bustamante Hospital for Children was the latest in his four-day tour of Jamaica.

He is representing his grandmother, The Queen, who is celebrating her 60th year on the British throne.

Accompanied by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen and Lady Allen, Health Minister Dr. Fenton Ferguson and officials, Prince Harry warmly greeted the Jamaican international award winning entertainer Shaggy before they both sat with the children for a light exchange full of laughter.

The children sang for them before Prince Harry greeted them and exchange jovial moments and words of encouragement.

He then continued on his tour of the hospital.
