Prince Harry has immersed himself in Maori culture during his tour of New Zealand by taking part in a military haka.

The traditional ceremony was part of a day of activities for Harry at Linton Military Camp, the largest army base in the country.

Having flown in by helicopter, the prince got the chance to test drive an all terrain vehicle around the base as well as a light armoured vehicle.

He then spent 20 minutes behind closed doors learning a haka before taking part in a display in front of the cameras.

New Zealand’s national rugby union side the All Blacks perform their trademark Haka to intimidate opponents at the start of a match.
