Prince Harry published a stand-up video on Monday 6 November. According to some Internet users, the timing was poorly chosen.
Who said Prince Harry didn’t have a sense of humour? On Monday 6 November, the Duke of Sussex made his comedy debut! Meghan Markle’s husband shared a video shot from his home in Montecito at the 17th Stand Up for Heroes Benefit. The video was punctuated with gags about being ginger and living in the spotlight. The aim of the initiative was to support veterans, military personnel and their families.
For some, Archie and Lilibet’s father chose the wrong time! Prince Harry published his video just before his father, King Charles, attended his first official opening of Parliament as monarch. But that’s not all! The publication date of Prince Harry‘s video also coincided with his brother’s arrival at the Earthshot Prize in Singapore. A timing that has not failed to raise questions among Internet users…
King Charles III opens the parliamentary session for the first time
While Prince Harry was busy sharing his hilarious video, a few hours later his father King Charles III opened the parliamentary session for the first time in his reign. On Tuesday 7 November 2023, the Sovereign stood alongside his wife Camilla in the House of Lords. Of course, this ceremony, full of symbols and age-old rituals, was no stranger to him, who had seen his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II, take part in it so many times. In May 2022, the sovereign, then Prince of Wales, even represented her at the Palace of Westminster, in front of peers and MPs, due to her frail health. He read the Queen’s speech on her behalf. A year and a half later, this remarkable ceremonial mission has fallen to him.
