Pupils from Felsted School paid a visit to a special guest this week in an effort to learn more about conservation.
Prince Harry welcomed the youngsters to Wilderness Foundation, in Chatham Green, where they built a supposedly waterproof shelter between trees using sticks, rope and tarpaulin as part of a survival course.
With the prince watching on, pupils got drenched as an instructor poured a bucket of water over the shelter to test its reliability.
Joking with the children, Prince Harry said to them: “How did you allow this to happen? I’m serious, look, how did you allow that to happen?
“I think what you need to do is you need to remake it and put him [the instructor] in it.”
