This week, it was Britain’s Prince Harry, who was the most talked about person in Nepal. The prince, who was supposed to return home on Sunday, extended his stay in Nepal by six days. He did it so that he could work with a community to rebuild a school devastated by the quake. Here’s a round up of news from the week.
