The BBC reports that Harry received “double-takes from motorists” during his approximately 17-minute run.

“Prince Harry took a 2K run around North London with the Running Charity and young people from the DePaul Hostel to hear about their work supporting young homeless people build confidence and life goals – setting them on the path to a brighter future,” the Kensington Palace wrote in their Instagram post. “The Prince is learning how grassroots community projects are using sport as a way to engage young people and help them get better outcomes in life.”
