Prince Harry ‘realized’ what he missed most as a member of the royal family

The Duke of Sussex was in London to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his Invictus Games before flying to Nigeria with Meghan Markle. While at St Paul’s Cathedral, he experienced a heartwarming moment as the crowd outside applauded: “We love you, Harry.” Now royal expert Tom Quinn says the Duke may have realized he was missing one thing after leaving royal duties: “meeting the public”.

“What Harry really misses in his role is the opportunity to meet the public. Even though he doesn’t feel safe as a member of the royal family, he has always felt completely safe As a celebrity, this has its origins in the fact that when he was a teenager, he had to employ a full-time secretary just to handle his fan mail,” says Quinn, who previously mentioned that the Duke had received. a “kick in the teeth” after the family reunion was canceled and William was honored with the prestigious Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps, which many believed was reserved for Harry.

The expert added: “Harry always enjoyed royal walks and the chance to meet an adoring public. And to some extent, they still love: for a short while outside St Paul’s, as Harry shook hands and smiled at his fans, the crowd chanted ‘we love you Harry’.

The crowd could have been even larger if he had received the support of his own family, other than that of his mother, Princess Diana, with the presence of Lady Jane Fellowes and Earl Spencer. King Charles and Queen Camilla, for their part, hosted a garden tea party at Buckingham Palace at the same time, potentially preventing senior royals from attending Harry’s Invictus event.

The Duke of Sussex was alone as the royal family was not present at the event to support him. What’s even more heartbreaking is the fact that Harry was only 2 kilometers away from King Charles, and yet the father-son duo were unable to meet for a single second.
