(SOUNDBITE) (English) PRINCE HARRY SAYING: "The future of this small and beautiful country and its magnificent people could and should be very bright. We need your support this evening to make it so. We at Sentebale, are hugely grateful for any contribution large or small. I know that it has been said but it's true. You just being here is already step one."
