It's been one event after another for Harry, but it's clear that the spark just isn't there anymore. Grown ups know what's up. I try viewing him in the same light as well but all I see is Prince "Nobody wants to be King" who sneaks off into the night bed hopping.

His escort's face says it all, really. No one is falling for the act this time, no matter how many bus loads of kids KP brings in.

^ Those kids weren't bussed in. The children Harry was greeting came from military families. He was visiting an RAF base in Suffolk to present new colours and greet graduating gunners. That's why Harry was wearing his uniform. And there were a ton of photos from that engagement and an earlier naval one that showed that people, both adults and children, were very pleased to see him.

I hope my post isn't seen as flame bait. It's just an observation of what looks like quite the stark difference in people's perception of Harry pre- and post-statement and interview.

That said...

^ The fact that you needed to explain that only proves my point. Actions speak louder than words. As with the above links' case, the images just gave a powerful impression. And the context is already implied when I remarked about the children. The other day it was veterans, yesterday it was the sick, and today it's children. The PR machine is in overdrive and it's clear for every one to see. Well maybe not every one.

@Stormbron  -  agree 100%.  I know, for a fact, that they bus in pensioners, free morning/afternoon out, with the carrot dangled with a lovely morning coffe and cake or cream tea if pm.  Can´t say how they tempt the others, but by old auntie went on one of those bus in jobs, loved it but only for the cream tea and a change of scenery.

The comments are fairly scathing towards Harry and it's jolting how low the BRF has fallen nwo that they have to bus people in.

I can understand busing in pensioners, it is good for them to have a change of scenery. But when those bused in make up the majority of the crowd, that is a problem.

I think it's disturbing that he isn't at a higher level; by now he should be much more advanced and doing higher level work and have an established record of appearances stretching back to his teens. He should have an established bond with the people and should be well known and well liked and certainly, much more articulate. His presence is hardly cheering since he's not bringing more volunteers and he could in fact have more of an impact if he were seen there working and somehow attracted more volunteers. Pity he isn't at all someone who chose to stand on his own two feet and make the most of his years that would have ended up a seasoned royal. Instead he threw the best training years away on booze and cheap women who didn't nothing at all for him.

Let´s face it, it is not as though he does a lot anyway.  Yes, he turns up at events, smiles, mixes well with people, but most of the time that is it, nothing more.  Who plans the Invictus Games, does all the leg work and donkey work, stresses about how it is all going, will it be ready in time, is everything in place, and etc. etc. etc.  Not haza, not at all.  So maybe he does go to a metting to discuss it, and have ideas, but he doesn´t plan the meeting, put out an agenda, take minutes, and put ideans/actions into place.   A lot  of work goes into it all, he turns up and joins the games, very noble of him, but still he is not doing the work is he.  Probaby enjoys it all.  Rather like the Terrible Twin of his, turns up, does a better job than bill medd I grant you, and then he goes. Driven or helicoptered there, taken back, end of, changes clothes and off doing his own thing.  Not difficult, what an easy numberand the rewards are more than sky high.

The Invictus Games was Harry's idea, adapted in an international format, from the Warrior Games in the US. One of his biographies I have on Kindle goes into detail of how he argued for the Games, sought funding and was in on the planning from start to finish, of the London based Games, the first IG. He also began Sentebale, at 19. What charity has William ever begun, or planned for, or overseen?

No biographer is going to state that Harry didn't do much. I don't think he does all much by himself and I don't think he has the brains to handle the details and the logistics. I also do not think that Harry had to struggle all that much to get it going since he is a prince and he is certainly not at all without a voice. I don't think he even knows how to do a purchase order and I do not believe that he struggled to get money or backers. It is a great idea and a great focus, but he didn't struggle.

Let´s face it, it is not as though he does a lot anyway.  Yes, he turns up at events, smiles, mixes well with people, but most of the time that is it, nothing more.  Who plans the Invictus Games, does all the leg work and donkey work, stresses about how it is all going, will it be ready in time, is everything in place, and etc. etc. etc.  Not haza, not at all.  So maybe he does go to a metting to discuss it, and have ideas, but he doesn´t plan the meeting, put out an agenda, take minutes, and put ideans/actions into place.

I don't think he can even stay sober, much less handle and run the logistics of something like the Invictus Games; it has become grand in a very short time and I don't believe that he's been able to actually initiate and sustain that kind of growth in such a short time.

Exactly. His volunteers who run themselves ragged don't get an ounce of the credit and I do think he was unable to handle the "King Harry" reaction he got. I do think he gets off on the good press and he has made himself much of the center of attention.

^ When was the last time Harry was seen drunk, or even clubbing? There is absolutely zero evidence that Harry is a drunk. He had enough brains to fly Apache helicopters and it does take nous and considerable organisational skills to draw money out of people for your charities and causes. Prince Charles has spent a considerable amount of time in the last thirty years doing precisely that.

This. With his many blunders, the people are finally distinguishing the mask from the real person. It's quite a rude awakening for everyone, really. Most unfortunate for the people he is supposed to serve, those that actually took pride in him not 24 months ago. I agree, kudos to him for having the intention. But he will always end up relying on others with more skills and experience to see them through. The thing is, no one and nothing is keeping him from learning from the sidelines. We hear about their father griping about how his sons won't assume responsibility for The Prince's Trust--and for someone who is supposed to be big on charity, who wouldn't want a ready-made foundation with such clout? It's not about Sentebale or Invitus, either. It's not as if his foundations won't benefit from the added boost.

And then we hear about ELF on the verge of leaving. Is he really that thick, to be willing to let go of practically the only individual at court who has looked after him and put his welfare first?

During their twenties Harry and William should have been working for the Prince's Trust, but foolishly decided to just party all the time and fancied they would be able to handle it all or start in their thirties. Life however doesn't work like that and frankly I believe that both threw a huge chance at an easy introduction to charity work via their father's foundation. As for Sentebele, it gives him an excuse to hang around Africa playing at being a desert warrior and as for Invcitus, it enables him to mingle with heads of state and travel the world in style and for a reason other than idling.
