Turns out the World Cup isn’t the hottest thing to touch down in Brazil this week: Prince Harry officially began his royal tour of the South American country on Monday.
“I told him I used to love playing football (soccer), but now I’m in a wheelchair, I can’t,” Carvalho told Us Weekly of his interaction with Prince Harry. “It’s very exciting to have Prince Harry here. We asked him to join us in a game, but he didn’t want to as he said he had to train more. Maybe he was worried we’d beat him!”
Prince William’s younger brother also comforted a mother, who became emotional after her daughter, who has cerebral palsy, managed to welcome Harry to Brazil.
