Prince Harry, Wheelchair Football

Work hard, play hard seems to be Prince Harry's motto.

While on military duty in Australia these past two weeks, the redheaded royal managed to dedicate some of his time Down Under to one of the country's favorite pastimes.

The 30-year-old royal and some other members of the 1st Brigade worked up a sweat playing wheelchair Australian Football with ill and injured veterans from the Soldiers Recovery Centre, a cause near and dear to Harry's heart no matter which country he's in.

And judging by video footage of the royal playing the competitive contact sport, it sure looked like the prince enjoyed the game, throwing passes to his teammates and flashing plenty of smiles.

Capt. Harry Wales is currently in Australia on a month-long term serving an attachment with the Australian Army's North-West Mobile Force (NORFORCE) and 1st Brigade.

The charismatic royal also spent time with elders and children of the Wuggubun community in the West Australian town of Kununurra while on duty.

And speaking of kids, Prince George's uncle will be returning to a new niece or nephew, sister-in-law, Kate Middleton due to give birth to her second child any day now.

Prince Harry has gone through flight simulation training and traveled with the 1st Aviation Regiment on an Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter Tiger from the Darwin army base Robertson Barracks, and next up will be stops in Perth and Sydney.
