As if you needed another reason to love Prince Harry.

On Wednesday, the 28-year-old royal kicked off his official Lesotho tour on behalf of his charity, Sentebale. And adorably, Harry was very personal with the kids—even learning some dance moves from them!

According to a reporter on the tour, he attempted to speak in sign language with some of the children. He also joked to Sentebale cofounder and Lesotho royal Prince Seeiso, "I'm never going to get this right." (We're sure they appreciated the effort anyway.)

Adorably, Harry got down on his knees and tried to learn some dance moves from the African children. Wearing jeans and a white button-down, he was all smiles (as were the kids) and clearly enjoyed participating.

He also tried his hand in the kitchen, strapping on a purple apron while getting a cooking lesson on how to make "fat cakes," a local dessert.

Harry and Seeiso also visited St. Bernadette's School for the Blind in Maseru. It was there that Harry was reportedly welcomed with a song sung in Sesotho.

The princes' charity, which they founded in honor of their late mothers in 2006, supports children suffering from HIV/AIDS or other disabilities.
