Prince Harry Reveals What He Misses Most About England as He Quarantines in Hollywood Mansion
It may surprise some people what he chose...
Prince Harry has spent the past few months quarantining with his wife Meghan Markle and his 1 year-old son Archie in the $18 million mansion of Tyler Perry in Los Angeles, California. On Wednesday, the 35 year-old prince opened up about what he misses the most about life in England, and it may surprise some people what he chose.
“We all miss rugby,” Harry said in an Instagram video that was shared by England Rugby. The two minute video highlights the popular sport of rugby, which has been shut down in the United Kingdom since March 20 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The video, which is part of the “Pitch In” initiative, ends by saying that the COVID-19 pandemic “hasn’t taken away our spirit.”
“When the game was paused, the rugby family came together as one,” the caption for the video reads. “Thank you from all of us at England Rugby.”
Since 2015, Harry has been the Honorary President of England Rugby and Vice-Patron of the Rugby Football Union. During that time, the royal has been credited with helping to grow the sport’s participation and popularity at the grassroots level.
This comes after reports surfaced that Harry is homesick and may be having regrets about leaving the United Kingdom.
“He has a lot of friends in the military community in the UK and of course he misses them. This is a very strange time for us all, but I think Harry is missing having a structure to his life right now,” a source close to Harry told Vanity Fair. “He doesn’t have friends in L.A. like Meghan and he doesn’t have a job. So at the moment he’s a bit rudderless, but it won’t always be like this, and he knows that.”
Harry and Meghan shocked the world when they stepped down as senior members of the British royal family earlier this year. They then briefly moved to Canada before relocating to Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles, California, where they remain at this time.
“He has been telling friends that he still can’t believe this has happened,” another source close to Harry told the U.K. Telegraph. “He can’t believe his life has been turned upside down.”
