Thousands were left homeless and 15 people were killed when the flames struck in and around the port of Valparaiso in April.

Harry was welcomed into the temporary home of three families in El Vergel, where almost all the wooden properties were destroyed leaving 100 families homeless.

Fire fighters spent two days battling the wildfires but hardest hit were the slum dwellers living in shacks built on steep hills overlooking the city.

When visiting the home of Coca Perez, 50, and her teenage son and daughter, the Prince noticed their television was not working properly.

Mrs Perez said: "He looked at it and he started to fiddle with the cable. He managed to get it working so we could watch Chile playing Brazil. Now I can tell everyone that Prince Harry is my TV repair man."
