How George left Uncle Harry red-faced in front of Obamas
Prince Harry was left a little embarrassed yesterday when America’s First Lady Michelle Obama told how his nephew Prince George knows him as a playful uncle.
Mrs Obama told how when she and her husband were at Kensington Palace for dinner with him and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last month, George, two, kept asking: “Uncle Harry, why are you so quiet?”
Mrs Obama, speaking on the ABC News show Good Morning America, then turned to the Prince, who was also on the show to promote the start of the Invictus Games, and said: “I was like ‘you’re not quiet’.”
She added: “I have to say the most precious thing if you haven’t already fallen in love with him, is to see him with his nephew.”
In an impassioned speech, he urged veterans and civilians who may be suffering in silence from mental illness to be inspired by this week’s events.
I was on my best behaviour, I’m normally throwing him around the room and stuff
The spectacular show was billed by the Prince as a tribute to the “remarkable” injured servicemen and women and from 15 countries who will go head-to-head in a range of sports over the next four days.
He said: “It is not just physical injuries that our competitors have overcome. Every one of them will have confronted tremendous emotional and mental challenges.
“When we give an ovation to the competitor with the missing limbs, let’s also cheer our hearts out for the man who overcame anxiety so severe he couldn’t leave his house.
Let’s cheer for the woman who fought through post-traumatic stress and let’s celebrate the soldier who was brave enough to get help for his depression.
“To those of you watching at home and who are suffering from mental illness in silence, I hope you see the bravery of our Invictus champions and I hope you are inspired to ask for the help that you need.”
