1. Charities sometimes pay their executives huge salaries; charities sometimes act as fronts for the security services; charities often fail to do very much for the people they are supposed to be helping.

2. Prince Harry set up a charity called Sentebale to help orphans in Lesotho.

3. Sentebale's director in Lesotho is former UK National Health Service executive Harper Brown.

Brown's salary and benefits package is worth between £90,000 and £100,000 a year.

"An education allowance helps the Browns send their three sons to exclusive private schools." (Prince Harry raises £1.5m to help AIDS orphans, but where has the money gone?)

4. "The Mants'ase orphanage in Lesotho has received just £10,000.

"And now Sentebale has stopped funding Mants'ase.

"Staff say it remains desperately short of medication and vitamins, of pots and pans, bowls for food and warm clothes. It needs urgent roof repairs

"Harry's special friend at the home is Mutsu Potsane, who was four years old when he ran up to the Prince during that first visit in 2004, held his hand and refused to let go." - Prince Harry raises £1.5m to help AIDS orphans, but where has the money gone?
