It was a nice night for a walk.Instead of sitting in Manhattan traffic like most New Yorkers, actor Stephen Baldwin enjoyed some family time with daughter Hailey as they walked to the After Earth premiere together on Wednesday evening.Despite wearing high heels that made her even taller that her 5'10" father, the 17-year-old didn't seem to mind walking through the Soho neighbourhood on a warm Spring evening as he protectively linked her arm.

are typically made of leather or heavy cloth. Their flexibility is amazing and serves to hold up many items of clothing. The most popular being trousers. They have been classified as part of male clothing for thousands of years. However, in the current age. Fashion trends have changed and they are now worn by both men and women depending on the look that one wants to pull off.
They can be used for decorative or as a utility item depending on the person wearing it. Belts were mostly associated by the armed forces and were worn as decorations. In recent times, they have acquired a new place in the fashion industry and have been elevated to a place of prominence.
At the moment, for both men and women, belt buckles have become common fashion and style accessories. There are many designers who have come up with different types. At the same time, the buckles come in, many different types of materials. The rule of the thumb being elegant and attractive. Therefore if one was able to meet this threshold, their product was taken on board.
The French are well known for their sense of fashion. It is therefore an exciting prospect to clients when a designer from there introduces a product in the market. Hermes belts have for a long time been used as the bench mark to gauge fashion trends on this particular product. The products have been refined to such a level that it is now a high fashion item.
There is no better way to make a bold statement about being fashion conscious than by wearing one from this house of fashion. These fashion items are legendary in terms of quality and making a statement. It has taken years of development and innovation but finally they have made their mark.
It is quite rare to come across a man or woman who does not want to hold Hermes belts. Arguably the quality that is associated with them has positioned them as a hot selling item. Rarely will you go into a boutique and not find somebody checking out this item.
These products are not ranked as your average belts. They are put up there with top rated items of clothing. In some stores, they have an exclusive section set aside for them. This is a result of using only the finest quality materials to produce them. The clientele that patronize such stores, reads as the who is who in society.
Rarely will you find the average person buying them. This however, does not mean that they do not like the belts. In some extreme cases, there has been a waiting list of clients waiting to get one. Such is the level of demand of these items. The title speaks of high end luxury goods. From time in memorial, presidents and other high ranking officials have placed orders for them.
This product started out in Paris. But word soon spread out and the demand grew. To this end, production has spread throughout Europe in a bid to satisfy the demand. However, the drive to meet demand has not been used as an excuse to compromise on quality.

The Hunger Games star has now reportedly called off his engagement to Miley Cyrus.The 23-year-old actor and Miley, 20, are still living together at their Los Angeles home but are now sleeping in separate rooms after Liam told his fiancée their relationship was finished for good.
According to Us Weekly magazine, Miley confessed to a friend 'we're done' when speaking about Liam.Speaking about their living arrangements, another source told the publication: 'It's strange.'Liam and Miley first met on the set of their film The Last Song in 2009 and had been together four years, with The Hunger Games hunk popping the question last June.

But their romance hit the rocks in February amidst rumours Miley had become jealous of Liam's close relationship with actress January Jones.Liam had been urged by his brother, Thor star Chris Hemsworth, to dump Miley because they thought the relationship was unhealthy for him because she was so jealous. The Australian heartthrob eventually made the decision to end things after deciding he couldn't cope with the constant drama in his romance with the former Hannah Montana star.

Most evenings, with their little girl safely tucked up in bed, Charlotte and Chris Everiss enjoy a kiss and a cuddle on the sofa in front of the television.Happily married for a decade, the couple cannot bear to even imagine their lives without one another. Yet, astonishingly, they haven’t made love for more than two years.Both insist that their marriage, which followed a two-year courtship after meeting on a dating website, is stronger than most. It’s just that sex, they say, is not important to their happiness.
‘We still turn each other on but we don’t want to take it any further,’ says Charlotte. ‘We don’t have the time or the energy.‘I find it hard switching off knowing that our four-year-old, Addison, is in the next bedroom. I think if Chris really missed sex he would tell me, or I’d catch him watching porn on the internet as a substitute. ‘But he doesn’t seem to want to go back to having sex, either.‘We sound like Darby and Joan, I know - even though I’m only 34 and Chris is 40 - but that, to us, is contentment.’
Too tired: Charlotte and Chris haven't made love for more than two years
Charlotte and Chris, it seems, aren’t the only ones whose sex life has dwindled to nothing. A recent survey estimated that 15 to 20 per cent of couples have sexless relationships - defined by experts as making love fewer than ten times a year - while around 5 per cent go without altogether.Actress Helen Mirren spoke for many of these couples earlier this year when she said: ‘I think the power of partnership in marriage is under-recognised in our society. That’s what makes marriages work, not sex.’
Content with a kiss and cuddle on the sofa: The couple, who have a four-year-old, say they are happy not to take it further
'I don't know that we're all that different from other couples, we're just more open about it'In a sex-obsessed society, where everyone - young, old, male and female - seems to be boasting of how many times a week they ‘do it’, it may come as a relief to many that couples like Charlotte and Chris are happy to admit that sex plays no part in their marriages at all.Most couples who find themselves at a point where sexual intimacy has died tend to confide their predicament to no one at all. But today three brave couples reveal to Femail how they have learned to live contented lives without sex.You don’t need a degree in psychology to work out why Charlotte, a social media consultant from Great Wyrley, Staffordshire - who in the early years of her marriage made love to her husband three times a week - may have problems surrounding sex.Three years ago, when their daughter was 18 months old, Charlotte almost died after an ectopic pregnancy resulted in her having a partial hysterectomy during a six-hour operation. Since then, she and Chris have made love only once, around ten months after her loss, an encounter from which she derived no pleasure.
Chris is understanding about her aversion to sex. ‘It can be hard knowing that our cuddles will never lead to anything more intimate,’ he says. ‘Charlotte is a gorgeous woman and I’m still very attracted to her, but she nearly died and I count my blessings every day that she’s even still here.’‘I have an hour-long commute at either end of my working day so, to be honest, most of the time I’m too tired for sex anyway.’Chris, a digital marketing manager, says he doesn’t discuss with friends the absence of sex from his marriage, but believes it is more common than people admit.‘I don’t know that we’re all that different from other couples, we’re just more open about it,’ he says.In all other respects, the Everisses have an enviable lifestyle. They live in a beautiful, four-bedroom detached home, have a Mini Cooper convertible and a VW Golf parked on the driveway, and enjoy several foreign holidays a year.
Stronger than ever: Charlotte and Chris have been married for ten years and say lack of sex has not damaged their relationship
'Of course, men have their needs, but I think I'm better able to control my urges than some - I distract myself with hobbies, like doing up old cars'Chris firmly believes that marriage is a lifelong commitment and says that walking out on his family has never crossed his mind. But for a couple who have not yet reached middle age, surely the prospect of living another 40 years without fulfilling basic, primitive urges is difficult to bear?‘It’s not as if we just stopped having sex because we stopped loving one another, there are reasons,’ says Chris. ‘I don’t take it personally, and my wife and daughter mean far too much to me to look elsewhere for sex.‘Of course, men have their needs, but I think I’m better able to control my urges than some - I distract myself with hobbies, like doing up old cars.‘However, I am hopeful that in the future, when Charlotte and I both feel better in ourselves, our sex life will resume.’Charlotte is less optimistic.‘Sex was an important part of our relationship in the early days. Like most new couples we had lots of it and it was good,’ she says.‘I do feel guilty knowing that Chris sometimes gets aroused when we snuggle up together so, out of wifely duty, I’ve tried to let him make love to me a couple of times in the past three years.‘The one time we went all the way, after we’d shared a bottle of wine one Friday night, it wasn’t at all enjoyable for me. It wasn’t painful, but I lay there thinking: “How quickly can we get this over with?”‘I think Chris probably sensed that, which is not great, but maybe he was just relieved it was happening at all.’While some girlfriends have admitted to Charlotte that they, too, rarely make love with their husbands, her openness about her own situation has cost her one friendship.
‘Most mums I know think the ironing basket is a more attractive option than sleeping with their husbands, and they can go months without sex,’ says Charlotte. ‘But one friend, who has a very active sex life, thinks it’s abnormal that Chris and I don’t make love. I felt she was judging us, so we don’t really speak any more.’Psychologist Leila Collins says it’s all too common for mothers to ‘shut up shop’ and stop having sex with their partners once their family is complete.
Stressed: Tracey and Julian's sex life is on the back-burner while he focuses on his career
'We talk about rekindling our love life but never seem to get around to it'Predictably, what often follows is that their men then start affairs, or seek out the services of prostitutes.‘Lack of sex in a marriage is the reason behind lots of affairs,’ she says. ‘Other men will pay for sex rather than risk losing their families.‘Sexless relationships are a lot more common than people realise - I hear about this issue all the time from patients.’But it’s not just women who call a halt to lovemaking.Tracey Dowler, 42, spent several months worrying that husband Julian, 55, didn’t want to make love to her because he was attracted to other women. But she has now accepted that the stress of his demanding job as director of a motor mechanical and haulage company is the reason they no longer have sex.And, while she admits there have been times when she has felt like walking out of their immaculate, three-bedroom semi-detached home in Rugby, Warwickshire, over the lack of intimacy, Tracey values other aspects of their marriage too highly.‘We got married in 2007 after only knowing each other for six months, so it was pretty whirlwind,’ says Tracey, a wedding fair organiser. ‘When we were dating, we’d have sex up to three times a night, which was wonderful, but after the wedding we only made love once or twice a week. We started going months between encounters and now we haven’t made love for well over a year.’
Tracey still feels very attracted to her husband, and he says the same of her. The couple are loving in other ways, holding hands when they go out together, kissing one another goodnight before going to sleep and saying “I love you” at the end of telephone conversations.
Soul mates: Tracey values other aspects of her marriage too highly to be concerned about lack of intimacy
'For us, sex really is not the be-all and end-all of married life'But Julian has 40 employees under him and says his job has become far more demanding in the years since their wedding. He gets up at 4am to start work at 5am, puts in a 12-hour day and, as he is on 24-hour call, his phone often rings several times during the night with drivers needing advice.Weekends are no more relaxing as Julian also runs a photography business, which he is hoping will take off enough for him to concentrate on it full time.They are both keen to have a family together. They’ve had IVF and plan to have another round of it in August.‘We talk about rekindling our love life but never seem to get around to it,’ says Julian. ‘We had a weekend away at a country hotel a couple of weeks ago and I was so exhausted I spent most of the time asleep.’Julian regards Tracey as his best friend and soulmate - a fact common, it seems, to many couples enduring sexless marriages - and believes that once he retires they will be able to rekindle some semblance of romance.
Once a couple gets out of the habit of having sex, however, this can be easier said than done. ‘Couples who don’t make love start living like brother and sister or friends and get out of the habit of seeing one another in a sexual way,’ says Relate counsellor Paula Hall. ‘If both partners want to reintroduce sex, we encourage them to do so slowly, learning how to be sensual with each other and gradually building up to intercourse.’
No sex please: Rhae and Keith haven't made love for the last eight years after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer
BETWEEN THE SHEETSThe average person has sex 103 times per year, one study has foundRhae and Keith Elliott, from Cambridgeshire, have been married for 44 years but have not been intimate for more than eight years.When Rhae was 56 and Keith 67, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer that affected his sexual function and, although his GP said Viagra may help, Keith never pursued it.‘To be honest, I felt embarrassed discussing it with my female doctor and couldn’t wait to get out of the surgery and forget about it,’ recalls Keith, now 75, a retired senior foundry manager. ‘Even before the prostate cancer, we’d go weeks without sex. For me it was never the most important thing in the world, and I’d say the same for Rhae.‘I don’t feel pressured to try because Rhae doesn’t put me under any pressure. For us, sex really is not the be-all and end-all of married life.’Rhae has found the absence of sex in their marriage more difficult to come to terms with.‘I’m 64 now and have been celibate for eight years,’ she says. ‘During the first couple of years, I’d get very upset when Keith rejected my advances.‘He’d say: “I’m sure we’ll get back to doing it eventually”.
‘Then in 2007, we were living in France, renovating a house, when I raised the subject of sex and Keith said “Rhae, I don’t want to do it any more, can we stop talking about it?”‘I had to decide then whether our relationship was more important to me than my sex life. And it is.‘I have friends who sleep apart from their husbands and some don’t even like them very much, but Keith and I are really close.
Married for 44 years: Keith and Rhae say their relationship is now more about companionship
'I don't worry that Chris will stray if I don't make love to him - he's too much of a gentleman'‘We’ve had some wonderful trips to China, Australia, America, Canada and Fiji. We go on fishing trips together and love gardening - we’re great companions.’The Elliotts have a grown-up daughter and Rhae, a retired chief administrator, says the irony is not lost on her that, in her younger years as a working mother, she often felt too tired and stressed to fulfil her husband’s desires.‘But we’ve gone without sex for so long now, I wouldn’t want Keith to try Viagra,’ she says. ‘Our relationship has morphed into companionship, and I think to have sex now would be embarrassing.‘We’re used to seeing one another naked, when we undress or are in the bath, but if Keith made advances now it would be like getting intimate with my brother, or best friend. Just not right, somehow.’
Janice Hiller, consultant clinical psychologist at London’s Tavistock Centre for relationships, counsels hundreds of couples a year and says the death of intimacy in marriage is the reason most people seek help.‘I’m sure many more don’t sign up for counselling but make a choice to stay together without sex,’ she says. ‘It often starts when parents of young children start seeing their partner as a parent rather than a love object. We have evolved to do that, but the danger is that some people get over-preoccupied with that role, making it awkward to start having sex again.’While Charlotte Everiss acknowledges that she was traumatised by events surrounding her ectopic pregnancy, she says that she and Chris feel no need for counselling.‘We don’t feel the need for a sexual relationship to prove we have a solid marriage,’ she says. ‘Having our family over for Sunday lunch makes us just as happy these days.‘And I don’t worry that Chris will stray if I don’t make love to him - he’s too much of a gentleman for that.’

Paul Van Doren and his partners opened the Van Doren Rubber Co. in 1966, as the underground surf culture in southern California was skyrocketing to mainstream popularity. The idea was to produce custom canvas deck shoes with sticky rubber soles that would be great for wearing on the beach, yet easy to maintain. Because canvas is a coarse cloth made from hemp, the shoes clean right up in the washing machine and air dry quickly.
Skating to Success
Vans shoes were so successful that within 10 years, the company had launched a new style aimed at skateboarders. Called the Era, the new style was the first to feature the ubiquitous skate shoe design. Vans' skate shoes were designed with input from actual skateboarders, who knew what boarders were looking for in a shoe to keep them on firm footing and help them better grip the board.
Expert consultants who have worked with Vans shoe designers include some of the original Z-Boys, like skateboarder Tony Alva (whose aggressive attack on the ramp lip has made his aerial stunts legendary), and Stacy Peralta, credited with bringing together a team that consisted of some of the best skateboarders of all time. Peralta later became a well-known director and producer of skate films, further enhancing the popularity of the Vans skate shoe.
In the late 1970s, Vans added the slip-on skate shoe and took its brand to a worldwide market. Since then, the company has added a waffle sole to its standard shoe, giving it an extra sturdy grip on the board and creating a tougher construction that can include leather detailing and rigid stitching.
Today, the Vans skate shoe collection also features the more rugged 106 Vulcanized, based on the classic Chukka Low, and the Old Skool, a lace-up, short shoe similar to the 1978 Vans Sidestripe. Plus, you'll find high-top and boot styles for more ankle support, as well as mountain hiking and snowboarding styled shoes that provide a sturdy look and fit for navigating the winter landscape.
What makes a Vans skate shoe extra special is the freedom you have to design your own custom pair. Start with basic black or white shoes and choose from over 45 different colors and patterns, including checkerboard, skulls, flames, plaid, polka dots and stars. Most Vans skate shoes are available in men's or women's sizes, from toddlers to adults.

In 1975 two champion sidewalk surfers approached Vans to design the #95 skateboarding shoe, which is popularly known as the Mens Vans Era
. Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta designed the skateboarding shoe specific to sidewalk surfers. Fashioned with the harsh realities of concrete surfing in mind, the Vans Era is fabricated in suede or leather uppers with triple stitching. For needed extreme stability the soles are made flat with rubber to accommodate the roughened Grip Tape that is applied to skateboard surfaces for traction. Attention to form and function is what skaters have come to trust in the Vans shoe brand.
In 2002 there were 18.5 million skateboarders in the world. With the help of professional and champion skateboarders, the Vans Era became an extremely popular shoe on the street and on the skateboard. The Vans team realized that the Vans Era skateboarding shoe would have to meet the punishing rigors of the Asphalt surfer. Not only would the skateboarder need a shoe that could match his requirements for fast movement and pin point gyrations over curbs and asphalt. They understood that the street surfers' board is his means of transportation to a job, an art form, and/or entertainment. And of course for competing in skateboarding parks where concrete mimics the water surf. So they designed the Vans Era shoe to meet and exceed all of these parameters.
Built in the style of the classic lace-up, the shoe is lined with cotton drill in its interiors. The shoe sports a double stitch vamp and a die - cut EVA sole insert for comfort and fashion. It's a lace up skate shoe that sports a traditional gum rubber out-sole. This is attached to the renowned Vulcanized waffle tread and leather paneled heel. Adorned with square leather laces and brass eyelets Vans Era was designed especially for use in skateboarding.
All lines of Vans shoes are constantly being integrated with the newest technology, to provide its wearer the highest level of performance as well as being fashion forward. Vans Era shoe is the premier "Off the Wall" Vulcanized shoe. A shoe meant for skateboarding, will feel at home on the decks of yachts and in the saddle of a road bike. This skateboard shoe gets noticed. Clearly this shoe is one that any skateboarder should consider. But while we can't endorse this specific brand - we do want to assist our customers in making informed decisions.

He emerged on Sunday looking a lot different from his Hollywood heartthrob days with a more bloated and aged appearance. But that is certainly not affecting Keanu Reeve's chances with the ladies. The 48-year-old was seen enjoying Cannes cocktail hour on a private boat with a mystery blonde over the weekend.
The Matrix star was spotted indulging in a glass of champagne during a lunch hosted by Len Blavatnik, Harvey Weinstein and Warner Music during the 66th Cannes Film Festival. The actor was on board the Odessa at the Old Port and was clearly having a good time. Keanu was seen laughing and chatting along with his blonde friend as he also mingled with other guests, including actress Naomie Harris and singer Joss Stone.
Who's that girl? Keanu Reeves was seen enjoying Cannes cocktail hour on a private boat with a mystery blonde over the weekend
Fancy some fizz? The Matrix star was spotted indulging in a glass of champagne during a lunch hosted by Len Blavatnik, Harvey Weinstein and Warner Music during the 66th Cannes Film Festival
But it was the flaxen haired beauty that clearly caught the Bill & Ted star's eye. Having starred in action films such as Speed and The Matrix, fans are accustomed to seeing Keanu in nothing but chiseled shape.So it came as a shock to see the Hollywood hunk look anything less than handsome during his Cannes day out on Sunday.
Close: The actor and the flaxen-haired beauty hardly parted throughout the day
Chatting away: The Speed star appeared very comfortable in her presence
Unfortunately, the actor stepped onto the yacht looking bloated and aged.He usually adorns his face and neck with grizzly facial hair, but Keanu went for a clean shaven look that revealed a drooping jaw and neckline.Attempting to hold onto his Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures youth, the star wore his black locks long in a beach-boy style that only acted as a harsh contrast to his ageing face.Perhaps a late night of partying caused his eyes to appear puffier than usual, but the actor looked tired nonetheless.
Mingling: During the day, Keanu mingled with other guests including singer Joss Stone
Boating with bloat: Keanu boarded the yacht in Cannes on Sunday, debuting a possible weight gain and a tired appearance
Former hunk: The 48-year-old, who usually sports thick facial hair, opted for a clean-shaven look that exposed his drooping jawline
Shocking gains: The ageing action star sported a protruding tummy and wobbly neckline
Further adding to his less-than-hunky appearance was a grey tight V-neck T-shirt that hugged his bloated midsection.A cream linen blazer layered over his shirt and distressed denim, concealing part of his weight gain.The action star has two films that are set to be released later in 2013, both of which must have required that Keanu be in top form.
Had too much? Seeing that the Cannes Film Festival is chock full of parties and flowing booze, perhaps the actor had been out late the night prior enjoying himself
Now and then: The actor looked slim and handsome just in October (right) yet debuted a tired, puffy appearance in Cannes on Sunday (left)
Signs of age: The Speed star's chiseled jawline was hidden under a drooping neck
In 47 Ronin, the actor stars as an 18th century samurai who sets out to avenge the death of his troupe's master.Additionally, in Man of Tai Chi, Keanu directs and stars in the film based on martial artists.It's quite possible the actor is just letting loose in his off season after months of filming and recently promoting the film Generation Um...Keanu is also rumoured to be in talks to star alongside Reese Witherspoon in new sci-fi film Passengers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The good old days: In 1991's Point Break, Keanu was at the peak of his handsomeness
The masculine mystique: Keanu later smartened up for a photocall for the Man of Tai Chi photocall

There were charmingly affectionate scenes at the Chelsea Flower Show today, as Prince Harry warmly greeted his family with kisses as they attended the opening of his charity garden.
It was something of a family jolly for the royals at today's VIP opening, and aside from the glorious displays of blooms, it was a chance to offer a show of support to the unexpected garden designer - Prince Harry.The 28-year-old helicopter pilot was at Chelsea for the first time with his charity Sentebale, which hopes its African-inspired garden will highlight its work aids orphans in the impoverished kingdom of Lesotho.
It was something of a family jolly for the royals at today's VIP opening of the Chelsea Flower Show, as Prince Harry greeted his father with a kiss
Aside from the glorious displays of blooms, it was a chance to offer a show of support to an unexpected garden designer - Prince Harry, who seemed extremely happy to see his family
It is the first time that Sentebale has undertaken such a project and the prince has been closely involved in its creation – even examining designs emailed to him by designer Jinny Blom while stationed on the frontline in Afghanistan.First up was Uncle Andrew and his daughter, Princess Beatrice, who said afterwards: 'I think it is beautiful and loved the story behind it.'Next was Uncle Edward - who had to be torn away from the strimmer display, according to Harry - with his father and step-mother hot on his heels.Charles looked proud as punch at his son's efforts and told him:'This is the great garden is it, after all that effort? I was wondering if it didn't exist.'
The affectionate mood was clearly infectious as the Prince of Wales greets the Duke of Edinburgh with a half hug and kiss during a tour of the B&Q Sentebale Forget-Me-Not Garden
Not to be left out the Duchess of Cornwall leans in for a friendly welcome too
And she was even treated to a peck on both of her cheek by Prince Philip
Harry couldn't resist jesting with his father: 'If there is anything here which might catch your eye we could probably come to a deal. You can't have it, but we can come to a deal.''A deal?! ' said Charles with mock outrage.The Prince of Wales then joked that the large round stone that is one of the main features of the garden could be a dance floor.
Princess Beatrice also met with Prince Harry at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, where he unveiled the Sentebale garden
It was only then that Harry noticed his grandfather, Prince Philip, waiting to come in. 'Looking they're even queuing,' he joked.When Charles failed to notice the other VIP guest, Harry ribbed him: 'Err, pa, meet your father!', prompting Charles to look up with an exclamation of surprise.
The Prince of Wales was heard joking that the large round stone that is one of the main features of the garden could be a dance floor
'You were meant to be looking at strimmers and tractors, Grandpa, I didn't know you were coming. Fantastic!' said Harry.'Hopefully you like it. You've been coming here for years and your opinion is highly regarded.'Are we going to see any of this at Sandringham or Balmoral?'The prince even teased Philip that a circular stone centrepiece to his garden span round with flashing lights rather like a nightclub podium.'Really?' Philip enquired earnestly.'No, Grandpa, they wouldn't let us,' Harry joked.Last to arrive was the Queen who delighted at her grandson's efforts but apparently told Harry to send a few plants to his father's Stumpery at Highgrove as he 'needed a bit of greenery'.When the Queen stood with her grandson on the stone circle, which is decorated with hearts and crowns, he told her: “Pa thought it was going to spin round – but sadly it doesn’t.Miss Blom, who has been working on the design since last August with Harry, said afterwards: 'The Queen liked it. The Prince of Wales would like the plants in the middle to go to the stumpery at Highgrove. The Queen thinks it needs it – it needs some greenery. So we are going to send them down.'She added: 'She has been coming here (to Chelsea) for nearly 60 years. She said she thought it might be her sixtieth year.

The Queen was delighted at her grandson's efforts but apparently told Harry to send a few plants to his father's Stumpery at Highgrove as he 'needed a bit of greenery'
Sentebale was set up by Harry in 2006 following a gap year visit to the tiny - and hugely impoverished - African kingdom of Lesotho.He was so moved by the experience that he vowed to spend the rest of his life helping the youngest victims of the country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic.
The Queen stood with her grandson on the stone circle, which is decorated with hearts and crowns as a tribute to his mother
In a country of just 1.8 million people, 23 per cent of adults are HIV positive and their life expectancy has plummeted to just 41 – leaving almost an generation orphaned.The name Sentebale was chosen as it means ‘forget me not’ in the language of Lesotho, a tribute to both Harry’s mother and that of the children themselves.The charity hopes that by showing at Chelsea it will raise its profile and fundraising activities.The garden’s creator, Jinny Blom, said she had been inspired by the landscape of Lesotho itself as well as Harry’s experience of losing his mother Diana, Princess of Wales A pattern of hearts and crowns has been engraved on a circular terrace in the garden, acting as a memorial to the late princess.

The man is not just a pretty face.
On Friday, Matthew McConaughey joined forces with football player Drew Brees to host the Amazing Race Charity Event in New Orleans, raising money for each of their respective charity organizations.
The 43-year-old actor, who founded the 'just keep livin' organization, stood on a balcony in strangely geeky attire and threw a football into the crowd.
High morals and high pants: Matthew McConaughey and footballer Drew Brees joined forces on Friday to raise funds for their respective charity organizations in New Orleans
Checking out the scenery: the pair stood atop the balcony as they encouraged people to donate to their causes
The Lincoln Lawyer star was casually clad for the occasion in black track pants and a blue T-shirt with an American flag 'rock on' hand symbol print.
And curiously, he opted to pull his pants all the way up over the top of his t-shirt, channeling either Mr Bean or the 1980's.
It was certainly an odd look, but then again he was once named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive... so he can probably be forgiven.
This one had better be good! The actor threw the ball into the crowd in front of his professional footballer friend
The Texan actor was joined on the balcony by Drew Brees where the two of them did a shout-out for donations for their charities.
It was a text donation campaign, and the pair got Twitter involved to really get the ball rolling.
'Text DREAM to 80088 & donate $10 to @drewbrees Dream Fndn & my @jklivinFNDN to help expand our programs in NOLA,' McConaughey tweeted to his followers.
What's so funny? The face everyone remembers from the actor's romantic comedy days
Footballer Drew Bees tweeted: 'Matthew McConaughey’s @jklivinfndn and our Brees Dream Foundation will both match the amount raised thru today’s Text fundraising campaign!'
The Mud star was enthusiastic about the event, laughing on the balcony and putting on the show for onlookers below.
Then the actor stepped into the shoes of his co-host, a footballer, and launched a football out into the crowd.
Gearing up for the throw: The Dallas Buyers Club star gears up to throw the football into the crowd
McConaughey, who has three children with his wife Camila Alves, started the non-profit organization with the intention of 'empowering high school students to lead active lives and make healthy choices to become great men and women,' according to the charity's website.
In early April, he appeared at a fundraising event in Austin, Texas, for his philanthropic effort with football coach Mack Brown and recording artist Jack Ingram.
On top of his charitable work, the Magic Mike star recently joined the cast of Christopher Nolan's upcoming movie Interstellar, and will soon appear in The Dallas Buyers Club opposite Jennifer Garner.
Hey there, ladies! Matthew put on that award winning smile... literally, the one that won him the 2005 title of Sexiest Man Alive

It doesn’t look like he’s leaving his famous father’s side anytime soon.
After Earth co-stars Will Smith, 44, and his teenage son Jaden Smith, 14, bonded as the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls in Game 5 of their series in Miami.
The pair acted and looked more like best friends than father and son during the game on Wednesday night as they took in the action while talking and laughing with one another throughout.Scroll down for video...
Father-son time: Will Smith and Jaden watched the Miami Heat defeat the Chicago Bulls in Miami on Wednesday night at the NBA Eastern Conference semi finals
At one point loving dad Will even tenderly put his arm around his son’s shoulder further pouring cold water over recent stories that the star would accept his son being legally emancipated from his parents.
Hanging tight: Will casually draped an arm around his son as the pair took in the action on the court
The I Am Legend star and his talented teenager set the record straight on The Ellen De Generes Show on Wednesday.
In a joint interview the Karate Kid star said: 'See, here’s the thing that you need to understand: I’m not going anywhere.
'The thing that people don’t get is everything at this house id free! So I can get anything and everything at his house, so I’m going to be there 20, 30 more years.'
Will insisted to Ellen that he was only joking about his son’s emancipation during a recent interview in Tokyo and that his comments had been taken out of context.
Jaden, who was dressed all in black at the basketball game, looked totally relaxed sitting beside his superstar dad who sported a Philadelphia Sixers hat in support of his hometown team.
Amused: Jaden was spotted giggling at one point as his proud father watched on
The two basketball fans watched-on as Dwayne Wade’s Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls 94-91 at the AmericanAirlines Arena progressing to the Eastern Conference Finals for the third consecutive season with their 4-1 series victory.
Both Will and Jaden will be seen on the big-screen when the M. Night Shyamalan-directed After Earth opens across America on May 31.
The blockbuster tells the story about a young astronaut (Jaden) who crash lands on a post-apocalyptic Earth with his father (Will).
The father and son team will battle it out at the box office that weekend with magician heist thriller Now You See Me and horror thriller The Purge.

A man has told how he and his wife battled breast cancer at the same time, and adding to the unusual turn of events, he was the one to undergo a mastectomy.Ron Bush, from Fort Mill, South Carolina, explained to WBTVthat he was focused on looking after his wife, Phyllis, who was diagnosed with Paget's disease - a rare form of cancer in the skin around the nipple area - last fall.
But in the midst of her treatment, he developed a lump on the right side of his chest and a biopsy confirmed he had an 'aggressive' and 'invasive' form of breast cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes.
'I just didn't think it was something that men get,' he explained.
Unusual circumstances: Ron and Phyllis Bush were both diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time, but he was the one who needed a mastectomy
'It stung. It took something out of me. I went from being a caretaker for my wife, to her being the caretaker for me.'Breast cancer in men is very rare and their lifetime risk of getting the disease is about one in 1,000, compared to one in eight for women.
It was Mr Bush's wife who first convinced him to go and seek help last December after she noticed a small lump on his right breast.
'I was just running my hand over my husband's chest and I felt this knot and I said: ''What's this?"' Mrs Bush recalled.
WHAT IS BREAST CANCER IN MEN?
Many people do not realize that men have breast tissue and that they can develop breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society estimates that in the U.S. in 2012 about 2,190 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among men and about 410 men will die from the disease.
Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women, and the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
The number of breast cancer cases in men, relative to the population, has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.
The outlook for men with breast cancer was once thought to be worse than that for women, but recent studies have not found this to be true.
In fact, men and women with the same stage of breast cancer have fairly similar chances of survival.
After much persuasion Mr Bush went to get a mammogram. Recounting the appointment he joked: 'They were trying to squeeze something that wasn't there!' However, the results did not look good and he was sent on for an ultrasound and biopsy. Five days later, doctors broke the news that he also had breast cancer.His wife of ten years had been diagnosed with the disease in her right breast just three months earlier.
Her treatment involved radiation and two lumpectomies, one in October and one in November, which meant she could keep her breast.But Mr Bush was told because of the severity of his cancer, he would need immediate surgery to remove all of the skin over the breast, the lymph nodes underneath the arm, and the chest muscle.
Dr Sharon Giordano, a men's breast cancer specialist at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas previously highlighted that in many cases men have a delayed diagnosis because they don't think they could be at risk.'Men on average have an advanced disease because you have to have a lump to identify it. They don't examine their nipples,' she said.Thankful that he caught his cancer early, Mr Bush is now raising awareness in his local church community about the importance of checking for symptoms.
'Men need to know. It's not just a woman's disease. This is now my mission,' he said.
Mrs Bush, who is also back to health, concluded: 'This disease does not discriminate . . . on race, economic status or gender.'

It looks like Eva Mendes made out like a bandit.
The Place Beyond The Pines star meant business as she ventured out for a day of retail therapy in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday.
Eva, 39, was dressed very un-diva-like in faded jeans and a short T-shirt that must have been inspired by Native American sand-painting.

For the next American Idol, it is all now a waiting game.
Finalists Candice Glover and Kree Harrison performed their final three songs on Wednesday night - and have 24-hours to nervously wait the result.
After a tough season, the final two - the first all female final since season 3 - had a relatively low key night full of gentle ballads as their last bid to sway viewers to vote for them.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO...
The Glover's are off: Candice remains favourite after out-singing her rival Kree Harrison in Wednesday's American Idol final
But while judge Randy Jackson insisted that 'Dude this is so close', the judges once again seemed to favor 23-year-old soulful powerhouse Candice.
'You just shot this whole night to another level,' Randy said excitedly after she once again sang Ben E King's I Who Have Nothing, her favorite song from the season. 'It's about singing - and baby you've got it ALL.'
Mariah Carey was equally impressed, insisting: 'I know I'm going to be listening to you for years to come, God bless you baby.
'What you have is the ability - the innate ability - to take any song and turn it into a vehicle for that amazing voice.'
Panel beaters: The duo are so skilled it was difficult for the judges to give them any damning criticism
Going ape: The crowd went bananas when Ryan Seacrest emerged and the eagerly awaited finale finally kicked off
Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, teased Candice 'for showing your legs tonight for the first time' that season as she wore a short black dress, but insisted she was a 'superstar' who 'commands the stage' even though there were 7,000 people in the audience and millions watching at home.
'Oh my gosh - it's just crazy. You're such a powerhouse singer,' Keith Urban told her. 'That song is like a planet exploding to life.'
Host Ryan Seacrest had billed the final as 'the battle of country versus soul', then joked: 'Or, as Nicki would say, Kreedom against Candy Girl.'
Mariah insisted she was 'blown away' by both girls. 'This talent is so magnificent - it's of a level that's just mind boggling,' she insisted.
There can be only one: While they seem friendly on camera the pair will also surely be fierce rivals
The pair started off the evening singing songs chosen by Simon Fuller - Sarah McLachlan's Angel for Kree and Adele's Chasing Pavements for Candice.
Randy questioned Fuller's choices, saying they 'were both a little sleepy' and hardly helped the women get off to a good start.
'But I have to give the edge on round one to Candice,' he said. 'At least she took the song and tried to make more of it.'
Next, they sang songs written for them as singles to release if they win - Kree having a power ballad called All Cried Out, while Candice, backed by strings, also had a rousing ballad, this one called I Am Beautiful.
Big moment: Candice will have been hoping to do enough to persuade the public to make her the next Idol
Getting into the groove: She was clearly feeling the music as she gave one of her trademark soulful turns
Nicki praised Kree's 'composure' while Keith said the performances proved they were 'both soul singers'. Of Candice's song, he quipped: 'It fits her like a Glover.'
Next, they sang their favorite songs from the season. Before Candice's show-stopping reprisal of I Who Have Nothing, Kree, now in a floor-length red dress, sang Up To The Mountain by Patty Griffin.
'That right there is a winning performance,' Randy told her. 'That's your best performance of the night.'
A tale of two judges: Randy Jackson all but crowned her while Keith Urban gave a more measured critique
Already a winner: Even if she ends up leaving empty handed she will be able to tell her grandchildren about how she shared the stage with TV legend Ryan Seacrest
Keith praised her 'spirituality and soulfulness', while Nicki said: 'I think all three of your performances tonight showcased your beautiful voice and your beautiful soul.'
Viewers have four hours after the show to vote, with the decision to be announced on a two hour special Thursday.
Despite the tension, Kree insisted her aim was to 'just be in the moment', explaining: 'Whatever happens, it's tomorrow - tonight we are just trying to have fun and sing our best for y'all.'
Double trouble: While Candice is the favourite, Kree will be attracting the formidable country voting bloc
Not-so-friendly rivalry: They may not agree on much but both Nicki and Mariah concurred that Kree did well
Showing them how its done: Carly Rae Jepsen may not have won the Canadian version but she has proven to have the right attributes to be a successful popstrel
'One song at a time,' Candice agreed.
The night also featured Carly Rae Jepsen - a Canadian Idol finalist - who finally performed a song that viewers had helped write lyrics and key elements throughout the season.
The song, Take a Picture, had Carly Rae - wearing tiny black shorts, a hat and yellow jacket - surrounded by pretend photographers onstage as she sang: 'I took a picture of you taking a picture of me.'
Cooling off: She had soon ripped off her jacket due to the stifling heat in the packed studio
Thighly entertaining: Her backing dancers grabbed her legs as they went through their routine
A completely unexpected performance came with a middle-aged woman named Gloria who was clearly enamored with host Ryan Seacrest - telling him as he walked past: 'You are so good looking honey!'
Ryan then picked her out to walk with him down the aisle, sending her heart fluttering as he hugged her. 'You are so good looking!' she told him once again.
Lucky girl: An obsessed fan received a kiss on the forehead from the devilishly handsome host
Palpitations: Her heart went aflutter when she lived out her fantasy and walked down the aisle with Ryan
Making everyone jealous: His fanatical fanbase will be more than a little envious she got to touch the DJ
