Prince Harry’s joke about being with 100 women exposed amid stand up comedy plan

188

PRINCE HARRY made a joke about being with 100 women at a charity dinner, as it was confirmed the Duke of Sussex would be taking part in a special comedy night to raise millions for military veterans.

It remains unclear whether Harry will perform himself, but during a WellChild charity dinner in 2014, the 36-year-old had the audience howling as he admitted he was surprised who he was seated with.

Ahead of the event, Harry posed for various pictures with a number of women, and was told that around 200 women were in attendance.

But after learning of who he was sitting next to, Harry took aim at the event’s organisers for not sitting him next to a woman.

He told the crowd: “Thank you all very much for coming this evening, I’m not entirely sure who made the seating plan as I’m sandwiched between two men.

“Which when I considered tonight it was meant to be 100 women and myself – it’s slightly strange.

“It’s great to see so many of you with us in this wonderful Harry Potter-esque setting – there won’t be any Quidditch.”

Omid Scobie, who co-authored the bombshell biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex entitled ‘Finding Freedom’, broke the news on Twitter.

He added: “Prince Harry will join an all-star lineup to honour veterans and their families on November 18. The Stand Up for Heroes comedy event, which airs on ABC, will see the Duke appear (virtually) alongside the likes of Jon Stewart and Tiffany Haddish.”

Harry’s willingness to support military charities has been well documented, and includes his work on creating the Invictus Games, which sees wounded veterans take on one another in sport events.

He is also closely associated with the military after serving in the British Army for a decade, before moving back into senior Royal Family duties.

The confirmation of his appearance came after Harry spoke of being shot at while in Afghanistan, where he had been serving.

Speaking before Remembrance Sunday, Harry discussed how wearing his military uniform was “among the great honours there are in life”.

He added during the chat on Declassified: “The act of remembering, of remembrance, is a profound act of honour.

“It’s how we preserve the legacies of entire generations and show our gratitude for the sacrifices they made in order for us to be able to live the lives we live today.”
