A prince and a herd in Kenya

He might have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth and is heir to a throne at some point in his life but right now Britain’s Prince George has other gifts in his life, such as the herd of cows that has come to him as a symbolic blessing from the Samburu community in Kenya.

We are not sure if the cows will like the cold weather in the country or if the royal family has any plans to bring the four heifers, a bull and a goat into the country at all so that the prince can grow up in the lap of nature but right now they are being looked after in Lewa, northern Kenya. For the young Prince’s parents this is a special place because this is where Prince William proposed to his then sweetheart and now wife, Kate Middleton.

Prince William is obviously touched by the gesture which is considered a rare honour back in Kenya and has said that he is grateful for the extraordinary honour and that he has fond memories of his time spent with the community in their country. He added that he is full of joy that his son’s “pension” will be nurtured on a land that the family cares about deeply and that he is hopeful that someday George will be able to meet the herd .
