PRINCE HARRY’s latest appearance raised some eyebrows as he jumped on a video call with three young charity volunteers in London. Here’s how the Prince was displaying a classic lockdown symptom
Prince Harry, 35, showed he was facing the same lockdown challenges as many others when he took part in a recent video call with charity volunteers. The Prince, who has settled in Los Angeles with his wife Meghan Markle and son Archie Harrison was rocking a pretty unruly hairstyle.
The new clip shows Harry chatting to a trio of young volunteers from London organisation Sport at the Heart and his long locks were hard to miss.
Harry and his family are spending lockdown in a multimillion-pound mansion in Meghan’s hometown but with barbershops closed, it seems he hasn’t risked trying to cut his hair at home.
Harry praised the volunteers, who have been handing out care packages in their community, for their “amazing work.”
He said: “You’re doing such amazing work and thank you so much for being you, and for being so kind and compassionate and caring to others.”

Harry added: “Am I right in saying all three of you are carrying on the volunteer work in some shape or form, whether it’s food deliveries, whether it’s package deliveries, whatever it is – medical supplies.
“You guys are helping out as much as you can, right?”
Sport at the Heart focuses on getting families active, is part of the StreetGames network that uses sport to support disadvantaged young people.
The organisation is linked to the Fit and Fed programme, which tackles food poverty and of which Harry is a longterm supporter.

The volunteers Harry spoke to were Koran Goldstone and Matthew Burrage, both 25, who work full time for Sport at the Heart, and Falhat Husein, 19, who volunteers for the organisation which delivers activities from a youth centre, in the London Borough of Brent, which Harry visited a few years ago.
Harry added: ”You guys can speak better than I can, but actually helping people, makes you feel better.”
Since lockdown, Sport at the Heart has been hosting virtual group activities like street dance, family zumba, school support tutoring, drama club and cooking workshops.
Nary Wijeratne, Director of Sport at the Heart, said: “These young Londoners are so inspirational. With all that’s going on across the world right now, the team received a well-received boost from the duke.
He added: “His positive and kind words really gave them some encouragement.”
While Prince Harry hasn’t taken to styling his hair at home during lockdown both the Queen and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge have been maintaining their own looks.
Dedicated mum Kate has had her hands full with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home and is understood to have been giving them DIY haircuts.
A source told Fabulous Magazine that Kate has been colouring her own hair and trimming her children’s too.

The source said: “Kate would certainly trim George and Charlotte’s hair as she is very competent and they are used to home haircuts.
“Carole Middleton taught both Kate and sister Pippa how to cook and cut children’s hair. To them, it is no big deal.
“Spanish Norland Nanny Maria Borrallo is on hand too, one of her skills is cutting children’s hair.
“George’s is easy. Charlotte likes her hair off her face and so it’s long enough for a mini pony tail. They both have easy hair to cut.”
