Prince Harry is back in the United Kingdom for the unveiling of a statue dedicated to his mother, the late Princess Diana. As part of the trip, he showed up to one of the foundations he supported, the WellChild Awards with musician Ed Sheeran.
“Congratulations, a girl right?” Sheeran asked the pseudo Hollywood producer. “We just had a little girl ten months ago now. You’re still in the trenches now! How do you manage with two?”
“Two is definitely a juggle,” Harry said of his children, two-year-old Archie and weeks-old Lilibet.
Harry also said, “We’ve been lucky so far, she’s very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.”
The royal’s attendance at the event was a bit of a surprise, though no doubt many of the children and their families were delighted to see him.
According to its website, “WellChild is the national UK children’s charity making it possible for children and young people with exceptional health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.”
It would be interesting to know if Harry has any regrets about this decision to abandon the royal family to help his wife fulfill her Hollywood dreams after meeting with these families who experience real hardships every day.
The royal family is about sacrifice and serving the people, not yourselves. But Harry and Meghan seem to know nothing else but self-promotion.
It’s good to see Harry getting back to work in the U.K., but it’s just a brief moment before he goes back to the self-centered and self-obsessed life in Los Angeles.
He’s already reflecting this. In his speech, he said, “Since becoming patron of WellChild in 2007, this organization and the people within it have held an extraordinarily special place in my heart. I wasn’t a father at the time, and yet the stories of these children and parents transcended that. I didn’t need to be a dad to feel the impact of this invaluable work. Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild.”
It’s as if the world doesn’t know that he’s a father of two so he has to mention it multiple times, when it would have been better to put the spotlight back on those who sacrifice daily for their loved ones.
Being a royal is not easy, but the ability to serve your country in such a unique and interesting way cannot be understated. Perhaps on this trip, he may feel what he gave up for he and his wife’s 15 minutes of fame.
Royalty means being written in the history books, but Hollywood producers and wannabes, for the most part, are quickly forgotten.
