Prince Harry has visited soldiers and their families at Weeton Barracks this morning.
Wearing jeans, suede boots and a waterproof jacket, he spent 10 minutes chatting to children from the barrack’s primary school, before heading into the Sergeant’s Mess.
There, he was shown photographs of members of the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, carrying out work in flood-hit areas across the north over the festive period.
He also spoke to soldiers and their families about the disruption to their family Christmas.
Speaking to those who were deployed to Carlisle, he saidy: “I love the stories I’ve heard about the community spirit and everyone getting involved.
“I take my hat off to you guys, dropping everything at a moment’s notice.”
After an hour at Weeton, he set off to visit flood-hit St Michaels on Wyre.
