Harry’s father, Prince Charles, has traveled to Iceland to fish salmon on several occasions.

Prince Harry was reportedly on a private trip during his summer leave from the Army Air Corps, reports.

According to, Harry’s media representative was overjoyed that news of his visit was not covered closely by the Icelandic media.

In unrelated news, staff of the Chinese Embassy in Iceland were found fishing in the salmon river Laxá in Kjós, Southwest Iceland, without a permit over the weekend.

Guide Kjartan Antonsson spoke with the individuals and explained that a permit was necessary to which they apologized and left, reports. Permits currently cost around ISK 50-60,000 (USD 415-500, EUR 310-370) per day.
