A 2003 image dredged for a new feature on Prince Harry showed him posing in his school dorm room, and Berry spotted a poster of herself hanging up.
The image, taken 15 years ago in 2003 when Harry was at Eton College, was used in a new article by W Magazine. It shows the then-18 year old prince sitting in front of one of the walls of his dorm, which is covered with a typical spread of student-type images – an England flag, personal items, and supermodel posters, at the centre of which is one of Halle Berry. The American actress soon spotted herself in the image, and decided to have some fun at Harry’s expense on Twitter.
“Ok #PrinceHarry, I see you! [rolling on the floor laughing emoji] #HalleBerryPosta @MissyElliott.” Halle's tweet is a reference to a lyric from Missy Elliott’s 2002 hit ‘Work It’ which goes, “Don't I look like a Halle Berry poster?”

A package containing white powder (later discovered to be harmless) and also allegedly a racist communication was intercepted by security procedures at St. James's Palace last week.
Scotland Yard has launched an investigation after a letter that was addressed to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was found to contain a white powder, apparently coupled with a racist message directed at the couple.
The package, addressed to Prince Harry and his fiancée, led to a security scare early last week at St. James’s Palace, with specialists from the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terror command rushed in to test whether the powder might be the deadly poison anthrax. Analysis of the powder found that it was harmless.
Security measures already in place ensured that the package was intercepted before it reached the royal couple. Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, have reportedly been informed, according to the Evening Standard.

Prince Harry - Today, Prince Harry visited the construction site of an earthquake damaged school being rebuilt by a Gurkha charity based in Nepal. The Prince met pupils and staff from Gauda School, located in Okhari village in the district of Lamjung, which was totally destroyed during last year's disaster. The school, which had stood since 1962, is now being rebuilt by The Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT), a charity devoted to supporting Gurkha veterans and their wider communities. Fortunately, there were no fatalities at Gauda; one of the small blessings of the disaster was that it occurred on a weekend when children were not at school. However, pupils were left working out of basic temporary shelters. At a height of over 1500m, the recent winter months have made it increasingly difficult for some of the school's 216 students to attend. GWT's project manager estimates that work will be completed by August 2016, at a cost of around £85,000. To put the project in context, a total of 32,000 classrooms across Nepal are estimated to have been destroyed by the quakes. Prince Harry has strong connections to the Gurkhas, having served alongside The Royal Gurkha Rifles during his 2007-8 tour of Afghanistan, and has often spoken of his admiration for his Nepalese comrades. This week, he has been able to witness some of the progress they've made in supporting their country's recovery. Yesterday, he also spent time with a Gurkha veteran and two widows from Lamjung district whose homes are being rebuilt by GWT. 77-year-old Lance Corporal Rajman Gurung, who fought in Brunei and Malaya, is one of around 1,200 former Gurkhas or their widows whose homes were destroyed. He said: "It's a great honour to be visited by a Prince and friend of the Gurkhas. I hope that this visit will help other people like me to get the support they need. "Without GWT's support, I would not be able to make ends meet. Even 40 years ago, GWT built me a house when I had none. And then after the earthq - Lamjung Distrcit, Nepal - Tuesday 22nd March 2016
