Prince Harry kicked off the last leg of his solo international tour with a good ol' fashioned charitable run.

And it looked like he was having a royal good time doing so.

The redheaded royal palmed a paper mask with his brother Prince William's face on it as he completed the Sport Relief mile in Rio in just six minutes, and joked about the Duke of Cambridge's dancing skills prior to the race.

"Everything about Rio makes you want to dance," Prince Harry said in a speech, according to the BBC. "I'm just so thankful that my brother isn't here because he might actually do it... and that would not be cool."

And while his famous bro is deployed in the Falkland Islands for his Royal Air Force training, Prince Harry is in town as a part of the Great Initiative campaign, which is aimed at encouraging more people to visit Britain.

And he's already making the most of his time there.

While he hasn't cut a rug just yet, Prince Harry also participated in sporting events like beach volleyball and beach rugby while he was at Flamengo Beach, where the race began.

During his Brazilian excursion, the 27-year-old Prince of Wales will also play polo to raise funds for Sentebale, a charity that helps children in Africa, and visit Sao Paulo as well.

And although his tour officially ends Sunday, the jokester is planning to hang out in Brazil until Wednesday.
