LONDON - Prince Harry has finished his first overseas tour on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II to mark her Diamond Jubilee.

Palace officials said Monday that Harry is spending several days in Brazil working on private projects. Details are not being released.

The prince has concluded his official duties in Brazil after being kissed on the cheek by model Fernanda Motta following a polo match.

Harry travelled to Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas to join local celebrations of the queen's 60 years on the throne before going to Brazil to promote business ties.

He played numerous sports along the way, sharing the track with Olympic runner Usain Bolt in Jamaica and playing beach volleyball, rugby and polo in Brazil.

Other senior royals plan similar overseas trips to mark the Jubilee.
