Budding basketballers in one of Adelaide’s most disadvantaged suburbs have had the chance to meet Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, during his tour of the city’s north.

The Prince arrived in Adelaide on Monday night, visiting Penfold’s Magill Estate as part of a packed national tour to promote the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

His first stop today was Smithfield Plains to meet youths involved in the Hoops 4 Life program, which uses basketball to help engage young offenders and disadvantaged children.

“It’s now a memory, it’s going to be something I’ll remember,” said 16-year-old Sahr Ellie, who met the Prince with his teammates.

“People see [basketball] as a game but it’s a way to come together.”

Local mother Chelsea McIvor also got up close to the Prince, who is ninth in line to the British throne.

“I went there for William and Kate when they came to Elizabeth [in 2014],” she said.

“To be a couple of feet from the Prince was amazing.”

During the South Australian leg of his tour, Prince Edward has 11 engagements in 36 hours.

After lunch at Seppeltsfield winery in the Barossa Valley to celebrate the 30th anniversary of an international donor group, he will meet with another youth community group in Salisbury before a reception at Government House.

Tomorrow he will also visit Prince of Alfred College and Adelaide Zoo.
