His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales Visits Romania?

Per AFP News:

His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales is spending the Easter weekend in a picturesque Transylvanian village in the heart of Romania, local media reported on Sunday.

Harry, who is visiting Romania for the first time, is being hosted in Miclosoara by Count Tibor Kalnoky in his elegant manor which dates back to the 16th century, the media reports said.

There was no confirmation from the palace in Britain.

A descendant of an old noble family of Hungarian extraction, Kalnoky and his wife were among the guests at the wedding of Harry’s elder brother Prince William to Kate Middleton in April last year.

The heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, has visited Romania about a dozen times over the past few years and is involved in organic agriculture projects in Transylvania, where he owns several properties.

A staunch protector of the Saxon villages in central Romania, he has also supported vast restoration works in the medieval city of Sibiu.
