Prince Harry dashed to the UK on Tuesday for a lightning-fast meeting with his father upon King Charles III’s cancer diagnosis. The 26-hour trip reportedly lasted a “maximum of 45 minutes”. However, within the same week, he was unexpectedly spotted at the 13th Annual NFL Honors in Nevada City, Las Vegas. The event was slated to be held on February 8, and it saw the Duke of Sussex present the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award to Pittsburgh Steelers’ Cameron Heyward.
While on stage, he joked, “You stole rugby from us and made it your own…” However, the same NFL stint soon became scrutinised as royal commentator Charles Rae severely reacted to the duke’s appearance in Las Vegas. Labelling Prince Harry “a lost cause” in a talk with GB News, the commentator fumed at his failure to mention his father while addressing the NFL event.
Rae also reiterated that Harry may have an “ulterior motive” with his recent UK visit, too, as they were with Paramount executives. Various media sources also relate him jetting to the UK for a supposed PR stunt.
However, as speculations and endless theories analysing every move of the estranged royal family member come to the top, a sad moment of the duke grappling with woe has also been brought to attention by The Mirror.
