Harry does the Haka

Prince Harry continues to charm New Zealand. With cupcakes! And haka! Hot Harry performed with the New Zealand Defence Force today and, bless him, he tried. He tried to release. He really did try to exorcise the repressed white guy and unleash the warrior inside. I can’t stop watching this. I can’t stop reading his eyes, the self-consciousness, and the endearing effort he’s making to be one with the team while wondering whether or not, if he contorts his face too expressively, the photos are going to irritate his grandmother. But he’s there, you know? He’s fully present in a way that I find is missing from many of his brother’s engagements. Will is really good at maintaining an intangible distance. With Harry though, you believe that he’s completely committed.
