Prince Harry took time out from his charitable work in South Africa recently to undergo a spot of bungee-jumping.

The third-in-line to the throne, along with seven friends, jumped off the 700 ft high Bloukrans Bridge, the world’s biggest jump.

However, witnesses said he may have needed some Dutch courage prior to the feat.

“Harry arrived with about seven mates and headed straight to the pub for a few beers. He obviously needed something to settle the nerves,” an unnamed tourist told the Sun.

The Bloukrans Bridge is an arched structure located near Nature’s Valley, Western Cape and Harry’s jump can also be performed by tourists on holidays in South Africa.

Harry also visited the cell in Robben Island, where the country’s former president Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his life.

The 23-year-old royal was joined by his colleagues from the Household Cavalry Regiment – who have spent two weeks on a trip across Botswana and Namibia.

Players from Manchester United have also carried out charity work in the country recently.
