Day 2, June 16, Botswana
Football, a vuvuzela horn, and meeting Joe Jonas…
Prince William experienced the piercing din of a vuvuzela at close range during the latest stop on his African tour. The 27-year-old was visiting the Coaching for Conservation project in the town of Maun, in Botswana, when he was handed one of the plastic horns. After failing to make a sound, William was forced to block his ear when he was out-blown by an 11-year-old boy.
On Wednesday, William saw youngsters taking part in Coaching for Conservation (C4C), a project which combines football training and wildlife protection. William volunteered to go in goal and try to save penalties taken by some of the children – most sailed past him into the net.
But the prince was almost upstaged by US singer Joe Jonas, part of the Jonas Brothers group, who was also visiting charity.
He gave a brief performance – to screams from local teenage girls – and one, Megan Butler, 16, admitted afterwards: “I like Prince William as well, but I was more excited about seeing Joe.”
