Next time your TV is giving you trouble, just call Prince Harry!

Prince William's younger brother, 29, began a three-day official trip to Chile on Friday. On Saturday, June 28, he visited the impoverished village of El Vergel, where a family put him straight to work—the red-headed Royal repaired their TV set, just in time for them to watch their country's soccer team face off against Brazil in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Coca Perez, 50, and her teenage son and daughter, told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph that Harry was the one who noticed their television was not working properly.

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

BBC News had reported that 15 people were killed and thousands, including 100 families in the village, were left homeless when wildfires raged through the hilly area in April.

During his trip in Chile, Harry also met with fans (during which he got to pet an adorable dog), children at a kindergarten and firefighters. The party-loving prince was also presented with a Chile "Beer hat" while meeting residents outside a fire station in the city of Valparaiso, located about two miles away. 

Earlier this week, Harry visited Brazil, where the prince, who was 12 when his mother Princess Diana died in 1997, got emotional while visiting children who lost parents. He did, however, have some fun during his stay — he met a sexy Brazilian TV personality, who invited him to the 2015 Carnival celebration.
