Trent Bridge played host to a special visitor earlier today on behalf of Team Nottingham, as Prince Harry came to meet a new cohort of 20 Coach Core Apprentices.

Prince Harry joined the apprentices as they led sessions with local school children in cricket, urban hockey, football and rugby.

Team Nottingham is a consortium of professional sporting organisations comprising Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, Nottingham Rugby Club, the National Ice Centre, Epic Partners, City of Football and the Football in the Community arms of Nottingham Forest & Notts County.

The consortium is working in partnership with the Royal Foundation, the charity of Prince Harry and the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, to deliver Coach Core; a new programme for school or higher education leavers to train as professional sports coaches whilst still in education.

Prince Harry meets flood victims - but not everyone is impressed with his attire



Prince Harry has visited flood-hit regions left devastated by the recent storms - but not everyone was impressed with his choice of attire.

The royal wore jeans and a blue hoodie when he met soldiers and school children in Lancashire - one of the worst affected areas.

But youngsters from Weeton Primary School in Preston said they expected the prince to have been dressed a bit smarter.

A right royal charmer: Prince Harry entertains primary school pupils in Lancashire before thanking local soldiers who helped out in the flood
Prince Harry made time to stop and delight local children as he travelled to army barracks in Lancashire today.

Harry, 31, was full of smiles as he entertained the pupils from Weeton Primary School and Honeypots Nursery, in Weeton, near Blackpool.

The Prince laughed and joked with the children who had braved the cold to see him as he made his way to the Weeton Barracks to thank soldiers who had helped out with the floods.

If we have to suck it up and have a monarchy is it even remotely possible that Harry could become King?  I know I'll get all the legal answers but I'm just having a little dream moment here.  The rest are so awful by comparison.

Namaste! Flowers and smiles as Harry meets 'the five virgins' as he visits earthquake-damaged areas in Kathmandu on Nepal trip
Prince Harry was greeted with garlands in Kathmandu today by five colourfully dressed local girls known 'pancha kanya' - the five virgins.

The group of girls aged between 17 and 27, whose name comes from five iconic Hindu heroines, gave the royal four bouquets of flowers, with the fifth girl Maiya Maharjan, 25, placing a fragrant garland of marigolds over his head.

Dressed casually for a morning's sightseeing in chinos, a blue shirt and desert boots - with colourful bracelets on his wrist - Harry looked delighted at the gesture and thanked them profusely.

The prince, who is on a five-day official tour of Nepal, was touring some of Kathmandu's most iconic sights to see for himself the devastation caused by last year's earthquakes, which claimed more than 8,000 lives and destroyed some of the country's most historic temples and palaces.

Day 3

Prince Harry’s third day in Nepal started very early in the morning, when he rafted down the Khauraha River in Bardia National Park. He then visited the park, where he signed a visitor’s book as ‘Harry, Capt Wales!’. After Harry moved to Dalla Village where he was greeted by some Tharu folk dancers. For his final stop the Prince visited a tiny mountain hamlet of Leorani, where he’ll spend the night. He’ll stay at the home of 86 year old Mrs Mangali Gurung, the widow of a WWII era Gurkha soldier

Harry's hat trick! Prince dons local headgear and is garlanded with flowers before he goes on safari tiger hunt in Nepal

Prince Harry donned local headgear and was garlanded with flowers as he visited a village on day three of his tour of Nepal.

The prince arrived by helicopter in the Bardia National Park which, together with neighbouring Banke National Park, forms the largest tiger conservation area in Asia.

At around 1000 sq km of forest and grassland, Bardia is also home to wild elephants, rhinos, crocodiles and more than 250 species of bird.

Dressed casually in chinos and desert boots, he was taken on short trip by raft along the Khauraha River, before driving the last few minutes to the village of Dalla, which has turned its back on poaching to develop a new eco-friendly homestay business as a source of revenue.

Harry, who is on a five-day official tour of Nepal, is keen to highlight the benefits of conservation projects in the area.

Prince Harry crowned head of Himalayan village
Whole village turns out to crown Prince Harry with white turban after he treks to Nepalese mountain range foothills to spend night with Gurkha family
 Prince Harry was crowned king of the hill when he stayed in a Himalayan village.

The Prince trekked into the foothills of Nepal’s mountain range to spend the night as the guest of a Gurkha family.

The whole village of Leurani turned out to welcome him and crowned him with a white turban, known as a pheta. The cloth head covering is worn by the village’s head man, which was Prince Harry for the duration of his stay

He knocks spots off bill medd in every way.  Shows interest, meets people, treats them as human beings and not as though they were a smell beneath his nose.  If he is putting on a show then he is doing a remarkable job, but I tend to think he takes after his mother.  Eat your heart out bill medd - you little brother is at the finishing point before you have left the starting line  He is not perfect, none of us are, he might like partying etc., who knows, but he does do things for others, which is more than you can say for bill.  He is leaving the people of Nepal with good memories.

Fast forward bill/cath in India shortly  -  bet she is overdressed, looking down her nose at the Indians, she does not appear to like skin other than white, as evidence in New York, twice.  Wonder how many times she will shake a hand and then wipe her hand on her outfit.

Carry on Harry, doing a far better job that your lazy, good for nothing brother and his bint.

I loved how he took off his shoes when he got into the tent, just like a " normal" guy. I doubt Waity & Bill Middleton would have do it.

Prince Harry was today reunited with a Gurkha fighter he first met 26 years ago on a visit to Salisbury Plain in Wilthisre with his father Prince Charles, as he attended an engagement at the Gurkha headquarters in Pokhara as part of his official five day visit to Nepal.

Retired Major Bishnukumar Pun, 57, was famously pictured with the then six-year-old Harry during the visit and shared the photo with the Prince today, joking that they both looked somewhat different now.

He told the prince: 'That's the photo. That was me, young and handsome. You were clean shaven then!'

Prince Harry tastes rural life in a village in the foothills of the Himalayas


Prince Harry has described the experience of sleeping under the same roof as a Nepalese family as "amazing".

Harry tasted rural life in a village in the foothills of the Himalayas, sitting down to dinner with an elderly widow and her family and then bedding down in a sleeping bag in her sparsely-furnished communal room.

In the morning he woke early to see the spectacular sunrise over the distant Himalayan mountains.

As the sun climbed its rays picked out peaks and as the minutes passed more of the impressive range was revealed.

Is Prince Harry Ready To Get Serious?

“Did they really line up five virgins to welcome Prince Harry to Nepal?” a friend texted me this week, “Seems like asking for trouble on the part of the parents.”

My friend’s joke gets right to the heart of the intractable tensions occasioned by the ongoing attempts to rebrand Prince Harry as a man of duty.

Yes, he takes his duty seriously, arguably more seriously than his brother, but Harry is so deeply associated in the public mind with birds, booze and billiards games taking place naked in Las Vegas that he will always struggle to shake off the Party Prince image.

This is true no matter how much  he works and good he does it always be hard to shake the party boy image .You will always have the set who waiting for to goof up ,and say i told you so



Quote
The problem, of course, is that good reputations are created in drops but bad ones are made by the bucket.

And Harry did enormous damage to his reputation when he was still, really, just a big kid; turning up to a mate’s fancy dress party in a Nazi outfit, calling a Pakistani squaddie a ‘Paki’ and, smoking a shisha pipe on a friends yacht.

Yup yup to this day people still will  give him the side eye .

he was young, give him this, probably had some issues because he lost his mum, but now he' s a man and what he' s doing is really really good, way better than the lazy duo. It will take so long before he scrubb off his shoulders the party prince image, it would have taken less if he wasn' t partying that much, but the press doesn' t help him indeed right now.

I don´t know, after bill/cath medd debacle most things look better.  Once he eventually settles down with a decent girl, has a family, a lot of that will be brushed off.  If he and his future wife are decent, caring people, everything totally opposite, more or less, to bill/cath medd, then he will be able to leave a lot of that reputation behind.  Never forgotten, and will get raked up at times, but if he more than makes up for it then IMO he will be home and dry.  He was only 12 when Diana died, and he was the "baby" of the two boys. Could be wrong, but time will tell.

I agree with you completely. To me he' s changed a lot, he' s grown. I ve seen an interview by him ( when he turned 30 or when George or Charlotte were born) when he said that he didn' t want to be rembered as the party prince. Then he added that the woman he will marry will need to be fitted for the role. I don' t think he' ll marry a woman like Kate, he works, he knows whta duty is and he doesn' t need a wife to lazy around with him.

Prince Harry meets families of fallen Gurkha soldiers
Harry, after landing at Pokhara airport, headed straight to the British Gurkha Camp in Pokhara. He spent around four hours at the camp, meeting the families of Gurkha soldiers.

Eight Gurkha soldiers were killed in Afghanistan while serving in the British army. Harry, who had personally known some of the deceased Gurkha soldiers while he joined the British forces in Afghanistan, had expressed his desire to meet the family members of the deceased soldiers, according to Regimental Association's chairperson Bhim Bahadur Gurung

Prince Harry once again proved that he had his mother's touch today when he visited a hospital unit for children suffering from appalling burns injuries on his final day in Nepal.

Visibly moved, the royal, 31, made the children he met laugh by playing with their dolls and posing for photographs with staff and parents...and even high-fiving one youngster.

Harry was at the Kanti Children's Hospital in Kathmandu, where he met 16 children aged between 11 months and 11 years, many of whom had been injured after being displaced by the earthquake that devastated parts of the country in 2015.

Prince Harry is doing such a remarkable job.  I am puzzled and dismayed, however, that the do-nothing Cambridges get ticker tape parades for showing up for anything but show little, if any, results and here we have, in Harry, someone who has made huge strides in his charitable endeavors. 

He's also connected with the projects and people in a way that we haven't seen before (not discounting Diana but he's doing even a better job, in my mind, without all the marriage drama).

Too bad the UK can't vote on this one because I believe Harry is the hands down winner here.

Prince Harry has thrown his support behind Nepal’s fight to end child marriages, telling a summit the cycle of illiteracy, poverty and ill health it leads to must be broken with education. Harry spoke out about the practice, which condemns young girls to a life with few opportunities, as he opened the Nepal Girl Summit with the nation’s first woman president, Bidya Devi Bhandari. Later Harry travelled to Bhaktapur, where he visited the Samo Thimi Technical School.

Prince Harry Helps Rebuild an Earthquake-Hit School in Nepal – with Help from His Injured Veteran Pals


Prince Harry has some familiar faces alongside him as he starts work on helping rebuild an earthquake-hit school in Nepal.

Harry, who made the surprise announcement that he was staying on in Nepal to assist in the relief effort after his tour of the country, is joining a group of British veterans who are volunteering as part of another challenge in their ongoing recovery from injuries sustained in combat.

Among them are Matt Fisher, who was part of the 1,000-mile trek around the U.K. last fall for Walking with the Wounded, and David Wiseman, who was with the same charity's expedition to Everest in 2012.  

Former infantry officer Wiseman received a gunshot to the chest in Afghanistan in November 2009. Fisher was shot in the leg while on patrol in Afghanistan in 2009, and had to have his left leg amputated a year later

The graze was caused by one of the scores of tikas - a red smear of powder - daubed on his face by well-wishers during his hugely successful five-day official tour, which ended yesterday.

The prince even joked about it in his final speech at the British Embassy on Wednesday night, saying: 'I have rarely in my life felt as welcomed as I have over the last few days. If anything I may have been a bit too welcome! This tika is here to stay!'

Prince Harry pictured getting stuck into manual labour as he helps rebuild school in Nepal


Prince Harry has been pictured getting stuck into hard manual labour to rebuild an earthquake-destroyed school in Nepal after he decided to stay in the country at the end of his official tour.

As he continued his charitable crusade of helping disadvantaged children, the Prince was photographed helping to move heavy building materials - including bags of cement - as he found himself "sleeping, eating and working" with volunteers from across the globe.

Wearing a T-shirt, jeans and gloves, he appeared to feel the strain as he helped to clear long lengths of timber with another volunteer to make way for a solar panel site at the village of Lapubesi

^^Remarkable how much that young man has grown and is growing into an even finer man.  All his personal issues aside, and they have been an image issue, he has the magic touch to completely redeem himself because I believe he is basically a man with a true heart of gold who is heavily invested in charitable endeavors with an eye on completing a task and 'getting it' that what privilege he has come with great responsibility.

Such a beautiful man.  :flirt:  One thing that constantly sticks out to me about him is that he wants to be useful; have his position make a real difference in people's lives. A while back, when he was three wheeling with Willy and Waity at a service a few weeks ago, I remember reading that there was talk about the courtiers wanting Harry to have his own Waity. They were too busy looking at him being single. They either don't get him or don't care that he can't live a life of meaninless lies and bs like his brother and that he needs a woman that'll be an asset and not a hindereance to him, imo.

He should be able to do his own agenda rather than be bound by more traditional engagements/appearances. He's fifth in line now and it's not like he's going to inherit. Why shouldn't he enjoy more freedom to keep the BRF profile going and lead a fulfilling life of his own?

Also the way Will and Kate are allegedly rasing Charlotte and George might affect hoe they will approach to royal stuff. Furthermore I think that giving good example is one of the best things a parent can do to educate kids and Will and Kate have no sense of respect for the monarchy and no sense of duty at all indeed  :thumbsdown:
What kind of royals will they be with such lazy parents?
I wish the inherited the sense of duty from their grans, and maybe they will be responsible hard worker persons, but the deplorable example their parents are giving them might put the throne in danger

Prince Harry joins families of Tunisia terror victims at memorial service

Prince Harry joined the loved ones of Britons killed in terror attacks in Tunisia at a special memorial service at Westminster Abbey.

Harry laid a wreath at the Innocent Victims Memorial on behalf of his grandmother the Queen as he gathered with survivors and families affected by the two atrocities in 2015.

He also delivered a reading during the central London service, which was conducted by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, and attended by David Cameron.

Members of public looked on outside the Abbey as Harry, wearing a dark blue suit, laid the wreath of white flowers before rising and bowing his head in a moment of silent reflection.

The circular stone and slate memorial was unveiled by the Queen in 1998 and created to remember victims of war, violence and oppression across the world.

So true, to the extent that she sends him on tour as her representative. Funny how he's supposed to be the wild one and Wills the stable one.
Way up thread regarding his blue suit: I don't get why he's always in that blue suit. Is as if he doesn't have any staff looking after him outside of his protection officers or platonic girlfriends that could help him sort out his wardrobe. Charles always looks so good in his attire that's tailored and pressed, unlike Harry whoes trousers were creased and too long when he met the Obama's for dinner. I really don't get it. He should have a few outfits that are pressed and tailored that he can go to when making public appearances. Good thing he's a nice chap who's heart is in what he does so his fashion faux pas can be put to the side during the event. It's getting old though commenting about his one suite and ill fitting attire.

He doesn't have one officially that I know of. He does have girls that are just friends who could help him look a bit sharper in the fashion stakes, so I was alluding to that. One good thing the press hasn't done is go after his attire when he's making public appearances. At least they have respect to talk about the event instead of that endless blue suit making the rounds.

Prince Harry will meet D-Day veterans during a visit to the building where the Normandy invasion was planned.
He will meet veterans who took part in the landings in 1944 at Southwick House, near Portsmouth, ahead of their annual pilgrimage to Normandy.
The event will allow veterans to give first-hand accounts of the landings.
Prince Harry will also visit the room where the campaign was plotted, where a map of the invasion route takes up an entire wall.

Where's your bloody tie?' Prince Harry gets a dressing down from D-Day veteran after joining a Normandy reunion in an open-necked shirt

veteran tonight for not wearing a tie to meet war heroes.
The fifth in line to the throne wore a blue suit and open necked shirt to meet a group of 45 veterans dressed in their best blazers, ties, medals, and berets to go on their annual pilgrimage to the Normandy beaches.
Harry, 31, a former Army captain, had already confessed to senior officers that he was embarrassed and felt under-dressed when he arrived to meet the group at Southwick House near Portsmouth, General Dwight D Eisenhower's advanced headquarters for the landings.

This is really poor judgment on the part of Harry and his team. Yes, there are events when he can go tie-less, but visiting veterans is just not one of those events.
Military men and women are very strict in their dress-code (I remember I once hosted a workshop for the Dutch DOD and I got mails from military personnel asking me what the dress-code for the day was). Knowing that, and he should know as a veteran himself, I find it very poor manners to show up without a tie.

I agree with you all ladies. Harry loves going tieless but that wasn' t the right occasion. Next time he surely will wear it, I wonder why, since he was doubtful, he didn' t carry one with him, you know, just in case, he could have worn it if necessary...
So Harry has a stylist  :- so why does he usually wear not well ironed shirts and jackets  :- he need to get a better one, and I agree, a better KP team is necessary.
Generally, if a man is doubtful wether wearing a tie or not, he should wear it if he has this doubt, at least in Italy we say so (" If you don' t know if wearing a tie or not, wear it") . Plus he' s a prince!!!




Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: YooperModerator on June 03, 2016, 01:53:43 pm
Not wearing a tie was a gaffe; there's no doubt about it.   Harry, even if his advisors said "casual attire", only needed to look to his father and grandfather for examples and disregarded their advice.  I honestly can't remember a photo of PC at an event honoring the military without a tie unless he was in the desert somewhere.  And his grandfather?  Not in a million years.  So, lesson learned!  One thing I know.  He'll never do it again.

To be really brutal, Harry needs a complete makeover anyway.  He's in a different league now and his suits, shirts, shoes should all be of the finest quality and in the best shape.  And, I know some of you approve of the beard but, for me, it's got to go.

Exaclty what I think Yooper!!!!
 :gogirl: :goodpost:

I may be wrong but I think class and dressing elegant is something inborn: you can learn the dress code for different occasions, but elegance is in your genes. I' ve already said how Obama looks always elegant and well dressed, Harry not.
I think, I may be wrong but Harry lacks elegance. He' s charismatic, a lot, he works hard, he cares about his job, no doubt. However I don' t find him elegant: I know a couple of men, friends of mine, who wouldn' t hang around with such ill fitted suits, especially during important occasions. Then, of course IMO it' s all about outfits, Harry looks quite mannered.

Probably I' m wrong, sorry ladies, but this is what I honestly feel from the pictures I saw

Harry looks fabulous in military uniform and even in tuxedos he looks quite smart. However, the eternal blue suit he wears has served its purpose and should go. Some suits in a different colour please, and bring back the cute and individual ties Harry used to wear, including one with tiny rabbits.

 Most of Harry's shoes are hand made at a very old firm, Lobbs of St James, where all the males of his family have had their shoes made for the past couple of hundred years. However, he need a tailor like his father. Prince Charles can be overly formal but always looks immaculate. Really, Harry needs a girlfriend with good taste who could pick out some new things for him to wear, including casual gear.

oh I so agree - Harry needs a tailor - he needs to dump the perpetual blue suit - he needs to wear clothes that fit - and although I loved the beard at first I think we have had enough - time to shave!

As for the tux - Harry wears that double breasted tux - which is so out of date.  50 year olds wear double breasted tuxedos.  He needs a well tailored, well fitted new tuxedo too.

So agree. I'm beyond shocked that he has a stylist. He/she needs to go. I'm also surprised that he didn't carry a tie in his pocket as as was stated, sea the tie and then take it off it it's too formal. I don't agree that he needs a gf to sort out his wardrobe per se. He does need a complete overhaul of his public wardrobe that should be handled by a top stylist. I'd hire him/her for a few days to go over the clothes and to document differnt outfits and sort out the storage. It's odd that Harry seems like a bachelor on a fixed income who can't afford to have his clothes cleaned and pressed. I don't get that he doesn't have someone who knows what they're doing to get his clothes sorted. I'm wondering if he sorts out his clothes himself. It's inconceivable that a stylist is getting paid and send out the client in such poor fashion. ITA that the beared has to go now!!!

Harry does same like he does the sniff test what some guys do when it comes to his clothes . that blue suite that he likes to wear always looks wrinkle like he had it crumble on the floor from the last time he wore it don't know if it's the material.

I couldn't care less what he prefers to wear in his downtime. If its not revealing something that shouldn't be seen in public. However he tends to wear unpressed , baggy blue suits to engagements. Like Windsor said he doesn't need a girlfriend to tell him what to wear in public.  He needs to take more pride in how he looks on the job. I've heard of incidents where he was underdressed while those invited were dressed to nine .

Criticism of Will and Harry for failing to show up at the Battle of Jutland ceremonies when PP was unable to attend.  Plus criticism of Harry's failure to wear a tie to the veterans event.

I think they both deserve this - yes sometimes the DM is petty but this time I tend to agree.  Harry is a harder worker than Will but even he does not even come close to maintaining the sort of schedule his grandparents and father maintain.  Both of them are not kids anymore - and it is pretty obvious that grandfather is failing.  They need to pick it up.  Part of the issue seems to be they think - both W and H - that they will only work on their charities and interests - leaving the rest of the workload to three people all of whom would be retired if they were not royals (HM,PP and PC).

As for the tie - someone on his staff should always have a tie along just in case.  Poor prep by his staff.  But Harry should know that one dresses to show respect - he is lately very much into showing up without a tie.  He evens wears jeans to some events and I think jeans should be reserved for private time. 

And yes - sometimes Harry does look as if he used the sniff test to pick his wardrobe , sometimes he looks like he is going commando too. I like Harry a lot  but - get it together.  He represents the RF - people spend months preparing for his visits - show respect by dress well.

Harry has done two big mistakes: 1. not dressing up for an important event when he was expected to show respect.
2. Not helping his family, his grandfather who deserves some rest.

Fully agree; Harry needs to drop this casual approach and stop trying to be earthy. As for duties, yes, he needs to give his grandfather a rest and stop dithering around, playing at being toy soldier and start putting his nose to the appearances grindstone.

from the DM article:

"Asked whether that meant he would finally become a full-time working Royal a year after he quit the army, an aide said: 'He will be undertaking royal duties in his way.'

They added: 'The prince's work will very much be project based rather than undertaking hundreds of engagements each year. He will continue to work to support the Queen both here and abroad and with his military duties. But it won't be a question of how counting how many engagements he does each year but how he can adapt his work to specific topics.'


In other words - Harry's gap year continues - he'll do 2 maybe 3 visits to sports clubs a week with no real full time job and not taking on full time royal duties.

Ready to pack a punch! Prince Harry visits amateur boxing club for at-risk youngsters in London as he makes it his mission to champion the power of sport

Prince Harry stepped into the ring today at an amateur boxing club in a gritty corner of south east London - but sadly without his gloves.
The 31-year-old prince was at the Double Jab Amateur Boxing Club in New Cross to highlight the power of sport in helping vulnerable young people and communities.
His visit is the first in a nationwide ‘tour’ of sports clubs to show how sport can be used as a platform for education, training, employment and personal development.

To me it  all is not so clear: Harry has been quite busy lately , busy and successful. I can' t say he' s been a part time royal, he hasn' t been lately IMO.
Sure, he had to take Prince Philips engagement, that one has been a big mistake by Harry and William.
But he' s working, I don' t know how much the other members of the BRF work but we can' t say he' s lazying around.
Probably he' s undertaking less engagements in comparison with Prince Charles but he' s succeeding; maybe he wants to focus on less causes to achieve much more indeed. For when he does something he genuinely does it with his heart.

Couldn' t it be that he doesn' t define himself as a full time royal only because he feels in awe towards the Queen' s, Charle's Princess Anne' s work ethic?
Or maybe he wants to modernize the Monarchy by focusing on a few charities and making the difference indeed for them.

In my opinion he should stop helping his lazy brother in raising popularity with that useless threesome and start helping the rest of the family, the oldest ones, who really need it and deserve it .

I hope it makes sense

Post by: Mandosiel on June 06, 2016, 11:41:50 pm
A ton of engagements meandms just making appearances almost for appearances sake. He however stated he wanted to be more involved with things that were projects. Which means less appearances but more time focus on various aspects of a project in order to get it off the ground. He likes being involved with things from tip to toe so it comes as no great surprise to me that he's only focusing on causes he really feels a commitment to rather than showing up to a bunch of things he could care less about. It wouldnt be sincere and it would show. His projects usually turn out to be successful so Isee no problem with his current methods of going about his royal duties. I'd do the same thing in his position.

Excellent post. Perhaps this should be the new way of doing things for the younger set. Maybe the counting of engagements should be discontinued. HM's patron of 100's of organizations. She might only see one of them every few years. I think Diana did what Harry's doing regarding project based work. I'm still confused regarding his military status though. Didn't he resign from the military? If so, how come it's stated that he has military work?


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: meememe on June 07, 2016, 01:52:35 am
This idea - of fewer charities but more project based stuff was the idea that was announced was the way that William and Harry were going to approach doing royal work when they set up their joint foundation before Kate added to the foundation.

The counting of engagements is largely done by people as a hobby. It isn't coming from within the BRF themselves but rather Mr Tim O'Donovan - who is the man whose count is seen as the 'official count' does it as a hobby and has done so since the early 80s. The poster on TRF has also said that she does it as a hobby. Tim's count is published annually in a letter to The Times and The Telegraph but other media have decided to do their own counts as well.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: cate1949 on June 07, 2016, 03:40:53 am
yes - project based stuff - which is what they have been doing for several years now - the veterans stuff which did bring attention to an important issue, the mental health stuff they are doing now and of course sports stuff which they have been doing for years especially Harry. 

So what is new with this one?  He isn't in the army anymore - we kept being told he'd start some grand new job or something - and after a year what we get is - Harry is going to visit sports centers for kids.  Cause ya know Harry has never done any sports stuff before. 

Ah but the always grinding KP pr department tells us - Harry will study sports for kids - to see what impact it has on keeping kids out of trouble.  Because ya know - no one has ever before figured out that sports keeps kids out of trouble. 

I agree focusing on specific projects with hopes of achieving some sort of result is a good idea - but c'mon fewer charities seems to equal fewer days of work for these three.  And what result will Harry's fun visits to sports centers for kids have?  How is this a "project"?  Harry likes sports, he likes kids they are an easy audience for him.  So this is now Harry's full time job?  Maybe 2 days a week - maybe another day for planning - 6 months out of the year? 

If Will pulled this - we would see through it - but Harry does it and it is okay?  I agree Harry brings a lot of enthusiasm to what he does and he does have more warmth and empathy - but he sure looks like he has the same idea Will has - part time work.

I find it to be a great idea to take a different path with his causes if it means putting in 150% in making an impact. Not quite sure what to make of his 3 days a week volunteer work.  Also I don't think it's fair to be disappointed in harry because of how he hasn't outdone will.

I'm not disappointed in Harry because he is not outdoing Will - I am questioning just what the heck all three of them think they are accomplishing with this project approach.

Palmer and others are on twitter now asking the same question - if they are going for quality rather than quantity - than what does this accomplish?

Palmer:
I've yet to meet a journalist or royal aide who can explain the KP mental health project - apart from getting us to write about it more.

If the focus is on qualtity over quantity, perhaps William, Kate and Harry will ultimately be judged on what they actually achieve.

Wounded warriors will continue to be a priority but he won't  continue to volunteer part-time regularly at London District.

So Prince Harry has no plans to get a regular job and no plans to up his number of royal engagements to the level of his grandfather, 95.

I think this project based approach would be good if they had done more appearances and such as teenagers instead of just mooching around and getting drunk and high while making messes of themselves at the nightclubs with women who were nothing other than trouble. Harry needs to do appearances and start making a sincere effort at connecting with the public. Doing the Invictus Games and stuff like that is good, but what about the time he's supposed to fill when he's not doing these things? As for dressing, he needs to stop it with the casual look at smarten up. These people don't see him often and they want to see a prince, a smartly dressed prince. Not someone dressed like a jet setting playboy.

In my opinion the point is that Harry actually did something effective, the Invictus Games and Sentebale.
The invictus Games have been such a massive show, I have no doubt he put a lot of work behind the scenes.
On the other hand what William has done? Nothing remarkable actually, nothing comparable with what Harry did.

In my opinion Harry succeeds because puts a lot of passion in what he does and also because there' s a lot of behind the scenes work in what he does: he never looks unprepared. Instead Will and Kate don' t do that sort of preparation so they always look uninterested, becaus in my opinion they don' t care at all ( William Said he never watched a Bollywood movie during the Indian tour, for example).

I think that focusing on less charities do work harder and longer for them only, may be the way to make an effective difference, as long as there' s hard work behind the scenes: less charities may not mean less job ( hopefully). Plus I hope Harry will keep on doing engagements during this summer, what he' s done is great but he needs to keep it up the good job in my opinion. He can' t sit back for a whole summer he doesn' t have the excuse of kids  :P

Richard palmer is a flip flopper. Was his opinions on the progress kate has made believable, concerning her skills in giving speeches. Did he make any effort to cover Harry's event. This is the same man who said Harry's engagements are too dull to report on and he needs to get a gf real soon to help. He said that right after complimenting the way he handled the engagement earlier. That man only turns bitter when he believes the trio is making his job as a royal reporter difficult.  I for one will not buy into the opinions of someone who disguises his motives with statements that fool the public into believing he agrees with them. This man gets paid to write something interesting about the trio, hence his history of whining when he and the uk press aren't  provided access to photos of George and charlotte first. His efforts to call kp for specific info on their projects aren't based on the spreading the word to the royal watchers. It's simply based on his efforts to avoid boring the public and his boss to death writing more of the same. Why does he have many questions unanswered? Because the public are wondering about it as well ? I dont think so. He has never hesitated to voice opinions no matter who doesnt agree. And debating with the same people on twitter who all of a sudden agree with him. Im pretty sure he is loving it at the moment. those who find his comments sincere are allowed to but those who don't should be heard as well.

Harry, for me, is deserving of all the encouragement, tailors, silver-polished PR and support available.  Will he get it?  That depends.  It depends upon whether he and any Cause that he finds worthy is more important than any jealousies or hierarchy that may be threatened by his natural success.  In the minds of those who are in charge of the overall PR spin for the BRF, the Cambridges, PC/Camilla, that is.

When I think about the business with the lack of a tie at Harry's recent outing with the D-Day veterans I can almost wonder if it wasn't a calculated move to put him in a bad light.  Is Harry conscious of how he appears?  Of course he is.  Is he the smartest person in the world?  Nope.  Dangerous combo, that.  It wouldn't shock me, let's just say, if somebody that Harry highly respects told him that this wasn't a tie kind of event and to play it down.  Would Harry become immediately Machiavellian in manner and quadruple-question it or any motives behind such a seemingly simple issue?  Heavens no.  He's too much of a bounding puppy to do that.  So, voila, Harry gets his comeuppance and taken down a notch or two by the very people he admires the most, i.e., the most highly respected Veterans we currently possess.

So, logically, it appears that his recent overwhelming Invictus surprise vs the Vogue debacle combined with many other issues of which I know nothing about, the next step is to dilute Harry.  

It's quite evil and if this is how the BRF operate and if they are that desperate to make the D/D 'popular' at Harry's expense they will fail.  Mistrusting the People's gut-feeling is never a wise move.  Did they learn nothing from Diana?  Evidently not, if all of the above is even somewhat true.

^ :tehe:  Brilliant minds think alike! 

Honestly, I have no clue what sort of sub-plots go on in the workings of the BRF but if history is any example, their motivations are usually self-involved, not what is best for their respective charities or general goodwill.  Rather more "how does this make ME look?"  And I don't get that vibe from Harry; I really don't.  I think he truly puts his all into his engagements and projects without thought of personal gain.  At least I hope so.  That would make him quite unique in that hotbed of machinations.

Indeed. I find it sickening how they seem to sabotage the one decent family member they've got going for them. They would of course do the same thing to any woman Harry marries all for the sake of two *fools* and keeping up appearances. Harry's problem is that he doesn't actually have his own people and basically shares some with the two losers. He needs his own staff completely removed from the Cambridge's even if ends up being being small of some actual people who are on the ball, knowledgeable and proffesional about their job cause sometimes I seriously feel like he's been handled by amateurs. His problem is he's too trusting of the wrong sort of people.

^^ and ^ Agreed on many points I hadn't considered, foremost that the 'handlers' are amateurs seems remarkably true and shows more ineptness than I would have expected.  What the two dumbbells do or don't do is, I think, beyond anybody's control but, so true that they have the one strong member of the BRF that could bring a golden handshake between the People and the BRF in Harry and they stick him with those two losers. 

Having realized and agreed with that:  Who's championing for Harry?  Anybody?  He needs a PR director, media manager, stylist and advisor.  Then?  He'd take off like a rocket so somebody's got their thumb on the turntable.  And it makes me really angry when I read articles that slam him that, ironically, all seem to come right after a moment of glory for him and his Cause(s) usually involving some random photo shot of "normal" Kate with Charlotte taken ages ago. 

Anywho, Harry needs somebody fighting in his corner and I couldn't agree more that it has to stop, desist, and never happen unless unavoidable whereby he is linked with the D/D.  Let 'em succeed or flop on their own especially if they're using Harry in any way, shape or form.  Detestable conduct, if true, and I think it is.

What's unfortunate is that he's the 2nd son. The priority to the staff will always be to the heir, I only. Harry will not be seen to overshadow idiot Wiills. Ever. I think that Harry was supposed to have dinner with the Obama's alone because he's actually friends with them, but Wills muscled in and wanted to host the dinner instead. It made no sense to have Wills and Waity waste the time of the Obama's when they have nothing concrete to discuss unlike with Harry they have loads. Harry's idea about invisible wounds was high jacked by Wills into the Heads Together bs. There's a pattern that's unseamly to me. The first born son's a total f-up and a waste of space whoes doing nothing but harming the monarchy whereas Harry does his best to use his position to make a difference to others. Unfortunately, Harry won't get his own staff withh his best interest at hart because of this dynamic.

Harry has his own staff - he has ELF he has the personal assistant - the blonde female you often see him pictured with and he has another blonde female.

I noticed when I watched a Di and Charles docu on a trip they made to AUS - that the staff who surrounded them included many grey heads and mature people whereas W K and H are surrounded by younger people.  We have talked a lot about how inept the staff are but remember - Will Harry and Kate hire them.

Since Edward VII the royals have decided they must be seen and they do that by visiting various organizations that make a contribution to British life.  They are in effect the "cheerleaders" to those who make a difference in UK society - they shine a spotlight on those people for a bit, encourage them and then move on to the next group of people.  This seems fine to me - it is their traditional role.  W K and H are trying to persuade us that they have redefined the role - they are going to make a difference (Harry says this all the time) and work less but work on meaningful "projects".  In reality they are doing exactly what the royals have done for 5 generations - shine a light on a particular issue, encourage the people who work for that organization.  Which is fine.  But don't try to sell it to me as something more meaningful - as some sort of project which will make a difference.  And do not use this as an excuse for why you work considerably less than your elders.  Harry is not "studying" how sports alleviate poverty etc - he is shining a light on specific organizations that help kids and giving them a pat on the back.  Great. But it is not some project and it does not justify working less than the 95 year old grand-dad
and it is not making a difference.  The people who run those organizations make the difference.

My last word on the subject!   :flower:  I promise!

What's an ELF? I meant that his staff might have to answer to Will's staff especially if Harry wants to do something that Wills' feels that he should be doing like the dinner with the Obama's, imo. Didn't the guy who resigned, the private secretary I think it was, hire staff in the past? This was the guy who had to make sure that Harry only had water in his glass whilst he was on a tour in New York a few years ago. I think he's back working for Wills on a part time basis. Anyway, he shouldnt hire his own staff especially if they're all young and inexperienced.

^^^That's not how the staff listing reads.  And this is important if we are going to discuss Prince Harry's engagements and how he is sold to the public, managed and treated within the inner workings of the BRF.

Quote
The Household is now formally "The Household of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales" and, as of 2011, had the equivalent of 7.8 full-time staff.

Private Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Major James Lowther-Pinkerton MVO MBE Irish Guards (Retd.) Lowther-Pinkerton will leave his post in September 2013, but intends to spend one day a week at St James’s Palace to act as a sounding board for the much younger members of staff who will take his place.

Private Secretary to Duke of Cambridge: Miguel Head; Private Secretary to the Duchess of Cambridge: Rebecca Deacon, Private Secretary to Prince Harry :Edward Lane Fox.

Advisor to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Sir David Manning GCMG CVO
Personal Private Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Helen Asprey
Communication Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Jason Knauf.
Deputy Communication Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Nick Loughran.
Official Spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Paddy Harverson, also Communications Secretary at Clarence House

It reads that the staff is for the D/D in addition to Prince Harry, with the exception of Edward Lane Fox, so I don't see any indication that Prince Harry has been given any authority to hire a team of his own staff and I understand that there are historical reasons for this but when a member of the BRF is so patently obviously useful and hands on, there is only one explanation for the fact that he does not have his own staff and that is either financial concerns or the method is to focus on the D/D which is horrid management.

The BRF pride themselves by referring to their 'business' as The Firm, repeatedly, and yet they are, in fact, behaving in a mediocre and amateurish way when it comes to Prince Harry.  And, in all fairness, the D/D themselves.

^Thank you.  My guess is that there is no single operating team in place that is top drawer and running the show where Harry is concerned and I think they're going to be sorry.  They've lived in a bubble of their own making for so long that I don't think it will take any Republican revolution to bring them down; they're doing a fine job all on their own.  Harry's engagements, in the last few months, are indicative of what they could be but my money's on inner politics ruining the whole show.

Idiots, if so.

However, it did not escape my, nor many other's I'm sure, interest the HM herself was the one who came forward to support Harry and in a different, fresh and perfect way.  That speaks volumes so I have hope.  The others are scurrying, I'll betcha!

 :bouncy: :hi: :thumbsup: :flower: :worship: kisss :thankyou: :loveshower:

This is it in a nutshell; Harry isn't doing something that will make a difference. Invictus to be is about highlighting and cheering the troops who have lost limbs and basically have to go back to their difficult lives with memories of a great time and moment when the public took notice of them, but nonetheless, a struggle for a solid life remains. Harry has all his limbs and I do think that the work that Philip and HM do is meaningful. It's not like Harry has worked so hard since he was a little boy that he has some right to think that his Invcitus means more than when Philip or HM make an appearance somewhere and brighten someone's long, lonely day. Harry has no business drifting around when he isn't presiding over Invictus games and he has no business partying and posing with celebs when he should be continuing to connect and also improve his PR.

He should be taking on more patronages and doing more appearances to improve the morale of his countrymen.

Prince Harry Receives Marriage Proposal from Young Fan – See His Perfect Response!

Prince Harry is up to his old tricks – rugby tricks, that is!

The prince, who appeared at an event Tuesday to support the idea that sports can help counter social challenges, watched in wonder as freestyle soccer champion Andrew Henderson did some impressive juggling with a rugby ball.

During one move, Henderson balanced the ball on his foot, flicked it up in the air and then did a handstand and caught the ball between his legs – without even looking at the ball.

"It's one of the hardest tricks and [Harry] said he'd like to give that one a go," Henderson tells PEOPLE.

Prince Harry and David Beckham Team Up to Honor the Queen – and We've Never Seen Her Smile So Big!

Prince Harry and David Beckham spent Thursday night at Buckingham Palace celebrating one of their favorite women: Queen Elizabeth.

"Just being here, it gives me goose bumps just driving through the gate," Beckham told reporters. "I've been here a couple of times now, and every time it is very special.

"After the school pick up today I was talking to [4-year-old daughter] Harper and I was like, 'I'm going to see the Queen.' She was like, 'Okay, but do you think she will be drinking tea?' So she was very inquisitive. I am so proud to be here." (Of course, Harper is well acquainted with Prince Harry already!)

Late engagement: Prince Harry will meet experts and staff at the HIV service at King’s College Hospital in London tomorrow.

During his visit Harry will take part in a roundtable discussion with leading clinicians, as well as meet frontline staff.

The visit is part of Harry's new push to raise awareness of the issues around HIV/AIDS.

Prince Harry's visit to King's is Thursday not Wednesday, mistake in op note apparently.

Harry nets new fans on angling centre visit


Prince Harry has tried his hand at fishing as he visited an angling organisation set up to help educate young people through the sport.

He laughed and joked with one young member of the Wigan-based Cast North West charity who told him he was being drafted in to help catch carp for the weigh-in.

After being handed a net, Harry said it would be, "awkward" if he did not catch anything, before laughing as he scooped out a tiny fish.

Declaring that he ought to "quit while he was ahead", the royal guest had more success with his second catch.

The visit to the North West is part of the Prince's tour promoting sport as a means for social development.

Cast North West was founded in 2006 by Neil Farnworth and aims to help enhance the employability and educational opportunities of disadvantaged young people who are at risk of falling out of education, training or employment - many of whom have faced severe personal challenges.

VIDEO: Prince Harry talks about how HIV medication has improved massively but stigma still remains.
https://twitter.com/byEmilyAndrews/status/753577286021091328



Prince Harry’s decision to take an HIV test, live on social media, is a groundbreaking moment in the fight against HIV.

Not only does it show His Royal Highness’s genuine and personal commitment to tackling the HIV epidemic, it will amplify a message to millions all over the world: testing for HIV is easy, quick and nothing to be feared.

We have a real opportunity to end HIV transmissions in the UK, but it starts with each person knowing their HIV status. Too many people are either put off testing by the stigma that still surrounds HIV, or simply do not think HIV is an issue anymore. Today, Prince Harry has got people talking about HIV again and has normalised HIV testing to a global audience. In doing so, he could inspire a generation to take control of their sexual health.

Thanks to treatment, testing for HIV could stop you from getting seriously ill, enable you to live a normal lifespan and prevent you from passing the virus on to anyone else. That’s why it’s so invaluable to have Prince Harry’s support as we aim to bust stigma and end the HIV epidemic.

Absolutely.

There is no way that they would have allowed him to do a 'live test' when he didn't know the result. Imagine the situation if he had failed the test live - the emotional and psychological impacts of a 'failed' test are bad enough but to have it live would only make that side of things a lot worse.

Dear Friends,
Today I met in audience our development partners where we discussed how to coordinate various interventions to Malawi's food insecurity response plan.
This meeting was very necessary as we put our efforts together to serve our friends who have been affected by hunger following the floods and drought that hit us during the last growing season and the season before.
The meeting which I chaired and was attended by various Ambassadors, High Commissioners, representatives of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, the European Union, the Vice President and several ministers, has resolved to open up all channels of communication amongst ourselves.
We also agreed to share information on quantities of food to be brought in and the logistics involved all the time. This will help us to implement a well-coordinated response which will assist everyone affected across the country.
My government is committed to ensuring that every Malawian affected by hunger receives the necessary support and together with our partners we will achieve our goal.
May God bless us all.

Dear Friends,
On Tuesday this week, I met in audience His Royal Highness Prince Harry, on a number of bilateral issues including our mutual interest in conservation of wildlife and natural resources.
I was pleased to note that His Highness, who is on a private visit to Malawi, is committed just like I am, to the conservation of wildlife and conservation and protection of nature.
I therefore assured the Prince that my Government is committed to the protection of wildlife by among other things, training and hiring additional Wildlife Rangers; training a number of our wildlife officers as prosecutors; and strengthening our border controls in order to effectively tackle wildlife crimes.
With everybody’s commitment and support, we will together combat wildlife crime, preserve our natural resources for generations to come.

Prince Harry Quietly Visits HIV Hospital Where Princess Diana Famously Kissed AIDS Patient

Prince Harry is tackling the stigma surrounding HIV by quietly visiting a hospital – a move his late mother, Princess Diana, did decades earlier.



Harry, who turns 32 on Thursday, visited Mildmay Mission Hospital in east London last Friday, a few days after he had returned from southern Africa, where he was on the front lines of elephant conservation work.

He gave me confidence to look forward’: Prince Harry reveals how his colour sergeant at Sandhurst restored his hope for the future after Diana's death

Prince Harry has revealed his Colour Sergeant at Sandhurst helped him build his confidence as he spoke about losing his mother at a young age.

He was speaking at a youth mentor training event at Mackie Academy in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, part of The Diana Award set up in memory of his mother who died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997 when Harry was only 12 years old.

Sitting in a circle with mentors and trainees, he said his Colour Sergeant from his 2005 entry to Sandhurst military academy was his mentor and credited him with giving him 'confidence to look forward'.

His trip will take in three social action projects which work to support young people in the north-east.

The engagements include visiting a Diana Award mentoring training day at Mackie Academy in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, touring Streetsport at Robert Gordon University and going to youth charity Transition Extreme Sports.

He needs to be out there meeting and greeting people, not wasting tie idly sitting about. Is there some kind of issue the younger generation has with meeting people and doing appearances and cutting ribbons and kissing babies? It's not like they're being consulted on anything so important. Even politicians get out and do meet/greets and make a point to see and be seen.

I think Harry, like a lot of royals, are always looking The Next Big Thing and looking for something that will provide a thrill. Invictus has become a huge deal, Sentebele is his fix, I believe he's looking for something that he can create a big drama out of. I just think there's something restless, unstable about Harry and it's manifesting in his inability to settle down and do routine office work and staid engagements.

Post by: meememe on September 27, 2016, 10:37:29 pm
I remember reading, when William and Harry established their foundation, before Kate joined it, that they intended on doing a lot fewer engagements, not having as many patronages etc but doing one or two big projects for a few years and then moving on. They said something like they would make a difference, get things going hopefully, and then move to another area of interest but the idea of doing 100s of engagements per year - as the older generation do - wasn't going to be their life. Remember that Diana only did around 200 per year at her busiest and it appeared she was doing more than Charles who was doing around 450 at the time but the amount of coverage she got made it seem she was doing more.

People who don't read the CC would think that only The Queen and William and Kate and occasionally Harry do lots of royal appearances but the reality is that Anne and Charles are over 300 and Edward and Andrew are both over 200. People may even think Sophie does more than Camilla - but it is the other way around with Camilla approaching 200 for the year while Sophie is only approaching 150.

The media only cover some engagements by some royals and then give them pages and pages of coverage while other royals, who do a lot more, get nothing. How many people, for instance, know that Edward recently spent 8 days in South America doing around 25 or so engagements including going to the Paralympics and visiting multiple countries??? Given the lack of coverage in the press most people would assume no British royal went to Rio for the Paralympic Games and that isn't correct.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 27, 2016, 11:29:04 pm
Thing is, that these little engagements keep them connected to their people and establish a good rapport. If William had had a routine of doing frequent appearances I am certain he would have been less led astray then he ended up being. It sounds to me like Harry, like his brother, would prefer to leap onto the latest trendy cause or latest exciting development instead of building something of his own from the ground up. He shouldn't be so snotty about doing regular appearances and I am certain that it has been a bad influence on Kate. Instead of doing her appearances, she is mooching off of W/H's foundation and therefore not motivated to really establish herself as she should.

As for the rest of the royals, it's not fair that they do the bulk of appearances and WHK get to freeload off of their hard work.

Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 28, 2016, 12:33:04 am
Harry isn't being modern or cutting edge or cool. He's being selfish and actually regressive. He needs to get doing duties, show up looking smart, and for once, just make a sincere effort. I am fed up with how the younger generation views itself as too good to start out doing appearances. He's too old to be so reckless and impish and disregard the conventions. I think he uses his mother just as much as William does to shirk work.

Harry has been in Norway for his charity MapAction this week and probably met up with Team Rubicon, with whom he helped build a village school in Nepal. This meeting, Triplex16, involved emergency service people from all over the world and the huge exercises are held every few years. He's been patron of  MapAction for several years. They are vital when natural disasters occur and it's hardly a glamorous cause.
 
Harry did help build two worthwhile causes from the ground up, Sentebale in Lesotho when he was 19 and the Invictus Games, both of them requiring a lot of hard work and networking, especially the latter.

Not just the royal family but also the influence of their mother and their schools, universities and friends has to be taken into account. The younger royals don't seem to have been raised with the 'duty' first idea that The Queen and her older children in particular were raised with. There was the idea of 'normal' as well and it doesn't seem to have really worked as the emphasis has gone too far towards 'normal' over duty.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 28, 2016, 07:02:09 pm
I agree. Their 'too cool for school' attitude has basically been a bad influence. They seem to becoming as bad as the Casiraghis in this respect. Harry showing up looking casual for an appearance with military veterans and of course, William and Kate looking unprofessional.

Harry has been in Norway for his charity MapAction this week and probably met up with Team Rubicon, with whom he helped build a village school in Nepal. This meeting, Triplex16, involved emergency service people from all over the world and the huge exercises are held every few years. He's been patron of  MapAction for several years.

How is building a school in Nepal helping Britain? Or his subjects? Nepal is not part of the Commonwealth and Harry and WK look more interested in globetrotting than improving their countries. Harry should be working on villages in the Commonwealth, not Nepal.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Ariel on September 28, 2016, 08:35:29 pm
I disagree. With Sentebale, and with Nepal, with the Invictus in US - Harry is promoting a cause but he's also promoting that he's the prince from GB, and indirectly promoting GB.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 28, 2016, 09:16:01 pm
He should be directly promoting it and he has no business being in Nepal anyway. Why not spend his time doing routine visits and appearances? The lesser ranked royals should be able to do more international stuff, but for some reason, Harry is the one getting away with shirking the UK.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: cate1949 on September 28, 2016, 10:26:07 pm
Right - things like Sentebale and Invictus up the international profile of the RF and the UK.  So it is quite a worthwhile use of his time.  In the same way Prince Phillip spent decades working with World Wildlife Federation.

I'd guess Harry being at  this exercise is not in the press because all the royal press is in Canada.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Rosella on September 28, 2016, 11:30:11 pm
Nepal is linked to Great Britain, in a big way. Its soldiers, known as Ghurkas, have served in the British Army in Ghurka Brigades since the early 19th century and the days of the East India Company. They are known as fierce fighters and have served alongside British soldiers in the First and Second World Wars, winning many high military awards, including the highest, the Victoria Cross.

The pensions of its ex soldiers play a significant part in the Nepal economy, and Harry as an ex soldier, who served with them in Afghanistan, knows this. They are also allowed to settle in Britain, and Harry has met Ghurkas, both serving and former soldiers in Nepal and Britain. That school will help the children, grandchildren and dependents of men who've served the British in their armed forces.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: meememe on September 29, 2016, 02:48:24 am
Wasn't it the gurkhas who basically protected Harry on his first tour of duty in Afghanistan?

The links with Nepal go back centuries. Part of the reason for Harry's visit earlier this year was to acknowledge this connection which celebrated its bicentennial earlier this year.
 
If the British royals only visited Commonwealth countries they would leave out all of Europe - except Gibraltar, Malta and Cyprus, most of the Americas - other than Canada and some of the Caribbean, large areas of Asia and Africa and most of the Middle East.

The Senior Royals do the main international stuff e.g. Charles and Camilla are going to the Middle East in November while the lesser royals do everything as well e.g. The Duke of Kent has been in Canada this week (you wouldn't know it from the coverage but he has been there).

The press only cover the main royals now - The Queen and Charles and William and sometimes Harry. The rest do both Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth and get no international coverage but they do a lot of 'goodwill' stuff anyway.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Rosella on September 29, 2016, 03:48:14 am
Harry served part of the time in his first tour of Afghanistan with the Ist Battalion, the Royal Gurkha Rifles, (Prince Charles is Colonel in Chief of the regiment)  and came under enemy fire while with them. They are the bravest of the brave, have a huge reputation in the Commonwealth for gallantry and have won no less than 13 Victoria Crosses, a medal that's given very sparingly.

While in Nepal Harry took part in a wreath laying ceremony to honour the more than 40,000 Gurkha soldiers who were killed in two World Wars serving the Crown. That school Harry worked on with Team Rubicon while he was there, and some wrecked villages he inspected, damaged due to the huge earthquake, have been largely rebuilt by the Gurkha Welfare Trust which has headquarters in Nepal and in Britain. British people donate to this Trust. There are indeed long lasting and strong links between Britain and Nepal.

Prince Harry is hugged at WellChild Award ceremony
A young boy with a debilitating medical condition has hugged Prince Harry at a ceremony to recognise inspirational children.
Ollie Carroll, five, suffers from the rare Batten disease and cannot stand by himself but managed to get to his feet to fling his arms around the prince.
Ollie's mother, Lucy, said both her son and the prince were "thrilled" to meet.
Ollie was among the children recognised at the WellChild Awards, which honour young children and their carers.
Several hundred youngsters, parents, carers and celebrity supporters attended the event, at London's Dorchester hotel.
The prince is patron of WellChild, which provides specialist care and support for chronically ill children.http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-37543580?ocid=socialflow_twitter&ns_mchannel=social&ns_campaign=bbcnews&ns_source=twitter


Prince Harry's heartwarming embrace with terminally ill boy, 5, at Wellchild awards in London
A young boy whose debilitating medical condition means he is barely able to walk found the strength to get to his feet and share a hug with Prince Harry at an awards ceremony tonight.

Ollie Carroll, five, suffers from the rare Batten disease, which affects his mobility and will soon lead to the point where his muscles stop working.

But when the youngster, from Poynton, Cheshire, met Harry at the WellChild awards - where he was receiving the Inspirational Child award for ages four to six - he found the strength to stand up and embrace the prince.

The Prince, who is patron of the WellChild charity, delighted the little boy by making faces as they were introduced at the awards ceremony in central London.

He was at the event to recognise the courage of children living with serious illness and the medical professionals who care for them.http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/prince-harry-shares-warm-embrace-with-terminally-ill-boy-5-at-wellchild-awards-in-london-a3360266.html

Wellchild is such a spectacular organization - these kids and their families go through so much it is good to know they have this support.

Harry was prepared, charming, looked great and his attentiveness to the kids and their families is a great example.

Harry has a special gift when interacting with children, especially ill children. His mother had this gift and her son has it in spades. It will be ten years next year that Harry has been patron of this wonderful charity. It's so good to see him with these brave young people.

Ollie had some trouble standing to give Harry a hug, but Harry, who got down on the floor with him, helped him and gave him a hug.

Ollie’s mother, Lucy, said afterward:

“Ollie isn’t actually aware of who Harry is but just reacted instinctively to the way he was talking and interacting with him. He is brilliant with kids and just very natural. He was very privileged as Ollie cannot use his legs but he just used his strength to stand up and hug him. I felt really proud of Ollie – and of Harry too! I was so touched at the time he took to talk to Ollie. He even knew about his younger sister, Amelia, who is three and has also developed Battens. It was incredible.”

Sam’s father said of Harry: “What was so remarkable was that he knew everything about Sam and the medical problems he has, even the fact that he was taken into hospital on Friday. He seemed genuinely touched by the present and said he would definitely take it home with him.”

It seems like Harry actually reads his briefing notes.

Prince Harry Honors Fallen Police Officers

The prince paid tribute to 650 officers and staff who have died while working for the Metropolitan Police.

At the ceremony in the memorial garden of the police training facility in northwest London, Harry planted a cherry tree and spoke with families.

Among those who joined him in placing flowers was retired chief superintendent Sid MacKay, father of PC Nina MacKay, 25, who was stabbed to death in 1997 while trying to place a man under arrest.

“The time has flitted past, and every day I think about her,” her father said. “I spoke to Prince Harry and I found him to be caring and interested, he had a sense of compassion and understanding. Unless you’ve actually lost someone, it’s very difficult to convey properly how that person feels. You never expect having to bury your child. And 19 years on, you wonder where would [Nina] be if she had still been alive. Would I have grandchildren?”

Harry was given a white rose today from a woman who said it was because Diana was an English rose. He said: "White is my favourite colour."


Prince charmed! Harry receives a single white rose from a fan as he's mobbed by eager admirers on a visit to Nottingham

He's never short of admirers and today was no exception as a group of smartly dressed ladies lined up outside a police station to meet Price Harry in Nottingham.

One had brought a single white rose to the royal while another fan presented him with a box of chocolates from M&S.

The royal is visiting the city to open a new police station and tour the building before meeting the neighbourhood policing and Nottingham City Council teams who have joined forces to run operations from the station.

A royal snub for local media
Much like when then British Prime Minister David Cameron refused to grant interviews during a 2015 visit to the Caribbean,  Prince Harry is poised to do the same during a royal visit here next month.

In an email to OBSERVER media, Kensington Palace said: “There are no current plans for Prince Harry to give any media interviews during his tour of the Caribbean.”

The Household Office of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry did promise however to “let you know if anything changes”.

It’s not the first time that British officials have refused to be questioned by the Caribbean press; David Cameron’s snub of the media fraternity in October last year was mired in controversy.

Cameron visited Jamaica and Grenada and his decision not to grant interviews angered the Association of Caribbean Media Workers, and media bodies in Jamaica and Grenada.

A spokesperson for the Media Workers’ Association of Grenada said last year, “We are firmly of the view that those protocols should not run contrary to the expected operations of a free media in a democracy such as ours.”

For the visit of Prince Harry, the media is likely to be provided with photo-ops, information handouts and press releaseshttp://antiguaobserver.com/a-royal-snub-for-local-media/

I think he'll give an interview. The faux relationship nonsense should have lost interest by the time the tour's in process. This is an important trip that the queen wants to see goes smoothly hopeing that the countries that Harry will visit wont want to bump her off as being head of state.

"Safe sex" has been backfiring. People don't like using condoms (assuming they don't slip off or break, which happens more often than people would like to think) and everyone assumes their partner is safe and would *never* cheat on them. Even in marriages, the adultery rate is like 2/3; why do people think dating is going to be any better? "Safe sex" encourages promiscuity. STD rates are increasing and some of the diseases/infections aren't responding to antibiotics/treatments like they should. Yikes.

But telling people to learn to control themselves has never been popular, and of course celebrities are famous for sleeping around, so they're not exactly the right people to talk about it.

Such a mess... so many diseases, so many marriages falling apart, so many kids growing up with parents who are divorced or were never married to begin with (if they're lucky enough to not be aborted before they're born).  :-X

Harry's visit to the Caribbean is not going to stop them becoming Republics.  It will be a visit hardly noticeable to most people who live in these countries and hardly relevant to the important issues they face.  Such a fuss was made when he appeared to have charmed the Jamaican PM but she promptly reiterated her desire to see Jamaica as a Republic.

It generates good will for the UK and the Monarchy and reminds people of historic ties to the UK but it will not stop the inevitable.

The real problem with the issue of the BRF is that they're never there, so realistically, why should they hold on? It's not like the BRF have a member there to fulfill duties on behalf of HM and it's not like the BRF is much interested in providing jobs to Jamaica.

^ Exactly what I have been saying for ages. Why do they cling so desperately to the last countries that still have them as their top family??? Why not let go like all the other (ex-) monarchies have and concentrate on their own country. Then a slimmed down monarchy will work much better too (though that should also be booted out asap). If Jamaica et al want full independence, then let them have it for gawd's sake!


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 11, 2016, 04:04:01 am


I believe the only reason the BRF care is because if the Commonwealth countries go, they'll lose the last remnants of their former empire and their prestige will in fact be drastically reduced to a tiny Island, which will only get smaller if Scotland secedes and Ireland reunites. I believe that if that happens, they'll no longer be able to claim that they deserve all these estates, all these palaces, and will not be able to justify their expenditure.

If Charles wants to slim the monarchy, he should just let the Commonwealth countries go and concentrate on Britain; it's their main focus and when you mention the BRF, it's always about England, bringing tourism to England, bringing jobs to England/Britain. The RF mainly lives in England and parties in London and basically the only time the other countries get attention is when they threaten to secede.

^ Harry's not going to Jamaica this time. Jamaica is independent. It's been independent for decades. Harry's going to a different part of the Caribbean to commemorate independence celebrations in several of these realms. If any of them, or Jamaica, become republics, it's not going to make a blind bit of difference. They'll still be in the Commonwealth and royals will still visit them.

Only the tourism trope doesn't work too well, it's a favourite argument of monarchists, but the truth of the matter is that tourism works much better in ex-monarchies than in Britain and would rise in Britain if the monarchy were abolished and the palaces were fully opened to the public. The monarchy is seated in London (& Windsor), but no one goes to London to see the Windsors, much too much other great stuff going on there and the palaces are not properly accessible anyway.

There are much more interesting things to see in London, from the House of Parliament to Westminster to the British Museum.

And just to add that I know that H isn't going to Jamaica, no one said he is. J was used as example (esp as it happend recently).

Thing is, that isn't supposed to be how it works. They aren't supposed to be some kind of sideshow tourist attraction. They should be attracting jobs, schmoozing with heads of state for favorable treaty terms, and certainly, doing all they can to increase the prestige of the nation. If I were a subject I would be so sick and tired of how the RF serves the monarchy (themselves) and not the nation. They have no business being so grudging about access and at some point, I do hope the MPs start hacking away at more prerogatives, like the numerous estates and other BS.

W&K were rumoured to go, but then the Wessexes went and now Harry.

They were rumoured to go but the rumour was more along the lines of they would undertake an overseas tour in spring - which was then assumed to be the Caribbean but turned out to be India instead. They have done two overseas tours this year - India and Canada - as has Charles and Camilla.

The Wessexes go to the Caribbean most years along with to Canada - for Duke of Edinburgh stuff.

The BRF do NOT visit overseas countries to promote trade or tourism or anything like that as that is the job of the politicians not the royals. Their role is to increase goodwill and not to promote business etc. Minor royal can promote tourism and business - as Andrew did - but not the major royals who have to have a completely non-political role and trade and business comes under the heading of politics.

William and Kate did the right thing in Canada and India - promoting good relations between the two countries. The politicians may do follow up meetings about trade or business or tourism but that isn't the job of the royals.

I remember Edward VII - who had just had is great trip to France going to the politicians and saying something like 'I have opened the door - now you go in and get us a treaty or whatever you want'. He summed up the role of the monarchy perfectly with that comment (which I have paraphrased from a comment I read in a book when doing my masters degree on the changing role of the BRF in the course of the century from 1815 - 1914) - to open the doors while the politicians do the donkey work and get the credit for the work.

Harry will get good coverage when he goes to the Caribbean but he won't stop the countries from becoming republics if that is what they want to do, he won't negotiate a trade deal, he won't promote British tourism or business but he will be popular and will have to answer questions about his new gf and get a lot of good press but he won't be involved in anything political as that would be outside his role.



Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: YooperModerator on November 13, 2016, 02:21:14 pm
The BRF are theatre and theatre only.  They are supposed to be apolitical, at least that's how I see it.  What can and should be accomplished on these jaunts of theirs is to subtly show themselves as being worth the money and allegiance.  Also to push forward/support any philanthropic causes that are good for the realm/commonwealth.  That's about it.

Treaties?  No.  That's for the politicians.  And that's as it should be.  Could be wrong.  Wouldn't be the first time.

Post by: Kuei Fei on November 13, 2016, 05:03:33 pm
I believe that if these royals trained in diplomacy and trade and became experts at it, they would be an invaluable asset and could open negotiations and take a huge burden off of the shoulders of the politicos. Being apolitical isn't an excuse not to cultivate oneself.

Doubtful, board meeting, she's not on the board and would be considered an interlopper. Even if private it's still something of an official thing so I don't think he could get away with that.

Speaking of which I read a comment on tumblr the other day talking about these board meetings. Could just be speculation like they said. But can sponsors really be turned off by the relationship that they wouldn't want to be overshadowed by it and not help? I mean she already overshadowed the Caribbean tour. But not helping becuase of that would be a bit of a stretch right? Wouldn't they want to promote their city...

Lemme find.....

It's probably nothing, but maybe thats what the meetings are about, looking for sponsors.

^I don't think sponsors will pull out, but the possibility of being overshadowed will be an elephant in the room. The fact that it is a possibility is really sad.

^^  Could well be correct.  I know for a fact that EACH childrens hospice has lost donations since council cath became patron.  The annual accounts are available online for anyone to look at.  If his lurid sex life stays on a media frenzy and is going to overshadow everything then why would people want to sponsor his charity. Sounds shallow, but that is why it is like.  He is behaving like a sex crazed teenager who can´t keep his pants zipped, very immature, and the way he is playing cat and mouse with the press is very immature and childish.  He is showing quite a shallow, juvenile side to himself, in fact he is bill medd Mk II.  It is very interesting as to what people take into account when they are sponsoring a charity.  It may not affect sponsorship, but there is a possibility that it could.  He has always been seen as Mr. Nice Guy, doing things for charity, the Invictus Games, and now all he seems to want to do is shout his lurid sex life to the world.  Shows a very different side of him altogether.

^^It is pretty sad. Could also make sense as to why the staff cringe at hearing the mention of that elephant. :/

^Ohh I have been meaning to ask gingerboy24, what does council cath mean? Like the council part of it.

That is just plain sad about the donations, and as she never seems to do anything except send video messages, it never helps that charity either. You make alot of sense about it all and how it works. It is very interesting. He keeps saying he has a private and professional side, but the private one keeps bleeding right into the professional one.

With lots of people out of work or barely making ends meet, I'm not surprised that charity donations have gone down. However, if/when the economy picks up again, people are not going to want to donate to people who don't take things seriously. Also, look at how the money is spent. If most of the money is going to staff and not to the people it was intended for, that is a red flag. People do seem to scrape money together to donate to disaster relief, even during hard times, but sometimes even that money doesn't go to its intended recipients, so be careful.

If Harry spent half his energy toward charity as he does messing around, he would be a charitable dynamo.

As for money, well, this is why I do not want to donate to much of anything these days. Almost all charities have an executive board that takes a lion's share of the donations via a salary and frankly in my view that is why I am not interested in doing much in ways of raising money for charity. It's now mainly a social vehicle for climbers and not real workers. It's disgusting really and Harry could just get HM or Charles to write a fat check.

Harry has raised millions of pounds for Senteble and the Invictus Games in particular in the last decade, including playing in charity polo matches in the US and Dubai and elsewhere, charity dinners and with concerts like the one held for Sentable this summer in the grounds of KP. So he's already a charity dynamo.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2016
Post by: KatherineTheGreat on December 18, 2016, 04:37:12 am
^Agree, he is a charity dynamo. Just one polo event alone can raise a huge amount of money. Imagine what can be done with that amount of money in Lesotho, though I wonder how much the impact may be affected by the fall in pound. I fear his popularity will fall though. Let's hope he weathers the storm and comes out unscathed.

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, but is this something that Harry usually does? http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/sports-personality/30408734 (link from 2014)
Someone on twitter said it was odd that William was there. Didn't Kate present an award once (the one where she held out her hand to shake Jessica Ennis hand and she didn't...)

^I don't think it something that any of them do regularly, just once in a while. Apparently Harry was there in 2014 to give awards for IG.
