^Is the cost of living that high in Australia?  That's a preposterous amount of money for any of those, frankly, standard executive suites that, at the very very highest price in SF or NYC would run, at maximum $1-2k.  In LA, where pricing is off the charts the highest price for a suite is around $500 with exclusive floor and all of that "hotel luxury".

With tax, that would amount to $10,000 USD a night in the US!  Wow.  Never heard of such a thing except maybe a private bungalow with a butler, cook, and use of yacht in Maui.

Sydney ranks 11th in the 30 most expensive cities in the world to live in, properties are very very pricey along the north shore (of the harbour.) Multi-million dollar properties are the norm there. Hotel prices near the harbour I'm not so sure of, as we have friends and relatives there and stay with them when we go up to Sydney.

That suite does seem very overpriced, not worth the money IMO, though the views over one of the most spectacular harbours in the world must be fantastic. It all looked nice, comfortable but not breathtaking. There are much more reasonably priced hotels around Sydney than that one. I doubt very much that Harry would have been charged full price anyway!

He should stay with the governor and live there. Plenty of securtiy, everything in place, plus I am sure the governor lives very comfortably.

Through the royal keyhole: Inside the $7,000-a-night luxury hotel suite where Prince
Harry dried off from his Sydney drenching, with incredible views of the harbour and Opera House

The angry comments are justified; standard room and while the view is likely fantastic, he shouldn't be living like this.

First Lady Melania Trump to lead US delegation to Invictus Games in Toronto organized by Prince Harry in first official solo trip

Ok, at least it isn't Ivanka.  eating cookies
I'd prefer people that are helping the veterans instead of whomever's in office. Dr Jill Bidden and Michelle Obama were perfect imo, representatives for the US and to give attention to the issues that the veteran's face on a daily basis because that's what they did as part of their "jobs" as First Lady and Vice President's wife. This one will only be a prop and won't be able to bring the passion and the hands-on experience that the others did. Michelle Obama got a nice kiss on the lips from Harry that left her flustered. They made a great team throughout the IG last year in the US.

As there's tons of evidence that Harry has befriended a lot of people he met at the IG, writing to them, offering support, and the other US sergeant who gave Harry her dog tag after wAlking with him on the Wounded Warriorsbwalk across England, put a lot of stuff on her Twitter about the letters and the gift of cookies she got from Harry, when she was recovering from a serious amputation, I wouldn't be so quick to take as gospel an anonymous post to NYC (one of the two Twitter queens who are anti Meghan).

I wouldn't take as truth in fact anything that people put on there. Harry takes his responsibilities to the IG community seriously. There's been tons of Twitters over the years from wounded vets who've heard from Harry via encouraging hand written letters etc.
