Harry and King at London events but not meeting

Published

on

The Duke of Sussex has attended a service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London during a brief visit to the UK.
Prince Harry was speaking at the event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games, the sporting competition for injured service men and women he helped found.
Meanwhile, the King, whose cancer treatment is ongoing, met members of the public at a Buckingham Palace garden party a little over two miles away.
The two are not scheduled to see each other while both are in London.


This was clearly a very personal event for Prince Harry. With the tight-knit Invictus congregation seated in a circle, under the cathedral dome, it was almost literally his circle of trust.
With the traditional hymns and prayers, the ranks of clergy, and no gimmicks or modern twists, you could imagine his grandmother the late Queen Elizabeth II fitting in comfortably with such a service.
With the mellow late afternoon sunshine coming in through the long windows, it was a surprisingly intimate celebration of a decade of helping to give a sense of purpose to individuals and families under pressure.
It was also shaped like a royal event, complete with cameras and cheers outside and Prince Harry shaking a few excited hands as he was leaving

On Wednesday he was seen removing his top hat and waving it in the air as a crowd greeted him by singing the national anthem at Buckingham Palace.
Prince Harry is also not expected to meet the Prince or Princess of Wales – who is also being treated for cancer – while in the UK.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the duke said: “In response to the many inquiries and continued speculation on whether or not the duke will meet with his father while in the UK this week, it unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full programme.
“The duke of course is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.”
On Tuesday, the duke attended an Invictus Games summit in London, where he told delegates: “Sometimes you… look back and go ‘Look at what we’ve done’.
“But also given the state of the world, there is so much more to do and I think a lot of uncertainty – but what we’ve created is a global community.”
Prince Harry is not being joined by the Duchess of Sussex for this visit, but his wife is scheduled to meet him in Nigeria, where he is due to travel after his stop in London.
The couple were invited by Nigeria’s chief of defence staff after they met at the Invictus Games held last year in Germany.
