Prince Harry has fond memories of his royal tour

Prince Harry has described his Diamond Jubilee tour as an "emotional trip" that opened his eyes to how fondly Commonwealth nations regard his grandmother the Queen.

Harry said he was "choked up" by the way the countries he visited - Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica - were celebrating the monarch's 60-year reign.

The 27-year-old Prince revealed he had set off for the seven-day tour with a ringing endorsement from his grandmother who told him "enjoy it, I hope you do me proud".
