He’s being stripped of his military titles, but that didn’t stop Prince Harry from defiantly reminding the Palace on Monday that he will remain involved with armed-forces issues.
The Duke of Sussex posted a supportive — and self-promoting — message to Instagram about “Walking With the Wounded,” a charity for injured veterans that he long supported as a royal.
“The Duke of Sussex, who has played a significant part in the impact made by WWTW, has been able to see first-hand the resilience and strength of those men and women who were injured in service to their country,’’ the posting said in a nod to the group’s 10th anniversary.
“The Duke has worked hard to raise awareness over the years, including an expedition to the North Pole in 2011.’’
Harry is being forced to “step back” from his “official military appointments” and barred from wearing his military uniform under the Queen’s Megxit deal, which comes into force this spring.
However, Harry — who served two tours in Afghanistan for the UK army — stressed in his first comments after Megxit that he will continue supporting the “military communities that are so important to me.”
Harry’s Instagram page was equally as boastful Monday about his work for Africa in a post about him meeting with leaders from Malawi, Mozambique and Morocco.
“The Duke has been involved in various causes in Africa for over a decade, and has helped to initiate a number of key projects in the region surrounding conservation and tourism, the threat posed by landmines and the HIV/AIDS epedemic [sic],” the caption gushed.
“The Duke of Sussex’s love for Africa is well known – he first visited the continent at the age of thirteen and more than two decades later, the people, culture, wildlife and resilient communities continue to inspire and motivate him every day,” the posting read.
