STORY: Speaking in a pre-recorded BBC interview in Orlando, Florida, aired on Sunday (May 8), ahead of the opening ceremony for the Invictus Games, Prince Harry said he sees the line vanishing between public and private life.
“That line between public and private life is almost non-existent any more. And we will continue to do our best to ensure that there is the line you know. We are completely aware that we are in a very privileged position and I will spend the rest of my life, you know, earning that privilege and trying to bring a spotlight on to things and causes that really matter to me, and hopefully matter to other people as well. Everyone has a right to their privacy, and you know a lot of the members of the public get it, but sadly in some areas there is this sort of incessant need to find out every little bit of detail about what goes on behind the scenes. It’s unnecessary you know. I hope people get to see me here in this Invictus role, you know, cracking on with the guys,” Prince Harry said.
Harry is patron of the Invictus Games. He got the idea of the games after his tour in Afghanistan when he had to leave his soldiers buddies behind to resume royal duties back home and flew back with injured servicemen.
“Once on that plane, heading back, with three wounded British soldiers who were wrapped up in plastic with tubes coming out of their mouth and out of their arms, not being captain Wales but being Prince Harry at the time I was thinking, there needs to be something here” Prince Harry said.
More than 500 injured athletes from 15 nations will compete in the Paralympics-style, 5-day sporting spectacle for wounded servicemen and women.
