One of Prince Harry’s first duties was to officially open the brand new £5m ambulance station in Ballymena, Co Antrim.
The Prince unveiled a plaque to mark his visit and then chatted and met with some of the public who had waited to see him.
Next Prince Harry is visiting Belfast where he will learn about the Amazing The Space programmes, which encourages young people to socialise and work together.
His last engagement is a garden party at Hillsborough Castle in Co Down, where more than 2,000 people will be in attendance.
Hillsborough Castle is the official residence of the royal family when they are in Northern Ireland.
There has been a garden party there every year since 1984. Last year, Prince Harry’s elder brother William attended with the Duchess of Cambridge.
However, while Prince Harry is in Northern Ireland, William is back home taking care of young prince George, who had his first day at school this week, and his daughter Princess Charlotte.
The royal couple recently announced that Kate is expecting their third child.
