Prince Harry trekked deep into the Himalayas to help rebuild a school destroyed by the 2015 earthquake.
He worked with Team Rubicon UK, a charity which uses the skills and experience of military veterans alongside first responders to deploy emergency response teams The group helped with the reconstruction of a school destroyed by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in the village of Lapubesi in the Gorkha region of the country, which was extremely close to the epicentre of the 2015 disaster.
This month, some 500 climbers from around the world, along with their support crews and hired Sherpas, will set up camp on a rock-strewn glacier at the foot of 29,035-foot Mount Everest, in the Khumbu region of northeastern Nepal.

At that time, very few Westerners had laid eyes on the mountain's southern, or Nepalese, side.
Following an assessment visit to the school in January, Simon Clarke, Director of Field Operations for Team Rubicon UK, said: 'It is heartrending to see how much work still needs to be done nearly a year after the earthquake.
'By providing a proper school for the children of this remote village, and repairing basic services such as a hydroelectric turbine we will be able to make a real difference.
The village of Lapubesi in the Gorkha region, where the work was carried out, has a population of 3,000 people and 95 per cent of homes were destroyed, while there were 16 fatalities and a further 150 injured The task involved laying a concrete base for one of the larger school classrooms.
But with no machinery available and using only local tools, rocks had to be broken down to size by hand and cement - carried from the nearest town 2.5 hours away - mixed and applied manually.
