Touching! Prince Harry Tickles Wounded Veterans Beard At Ceremony

Who ever said beards were scruffy?

Who ever said beards were scruffy? Some of them are a hit with royalty!

Row to Recovery star athlete Cayle Royce had a bit of a surprise as Prince Harry tickled his chin hair at last night's Endeavour Fund Awards.
 
The Row to Recovery were being honoured at the awards for their Atlantic rowing crossings.

Cayle lost his legs in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2012. 

The inaugural Endeavour Fund awards took place last night in London.

The project is led by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and aims to support wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans through sport.

Their Royal Highnesses came to the Royal Geographical society in London to be part of a night celebrating triumph against adversity.

The endeavour fund supports charities and groups who sporting or adventurous activities to service personnel and veterans in need – and these awards highlighted the very best of that.
 
People like Neil Heritage who won the Henry Worsley Award – who lost both legs in Iraq and has taken part in the "Row to Recovery Challenge" and now works with wounded veterans in the snows of the Alps.
 
Since its launch in 2012, 39 different projects and 1400 servicemen and women have been helped by the Endeavour Fund - that success looks set to continue in 2017.
