Prince Harry and Boris Johnson explore Olympic Park ahead of opening

Prince Harry joined Mayor of London Boris Johnson on a tour around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park today ahead of its official opening on Saturday.

The pair explored the newly-developed adventure playground and the Prince even allowed schoolchildren to push him as high as possible on the basket swing.

The park opens to the public tomorrow for the first time since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and Harry admitted the park was "better" than he expected.

Harry revealed that he was sure Prince George would get the chance to visit the Olympic Park in future years.
