Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's lives have been up in the air since announcing that they would me dropping their royal responsibilities. However, Prince Harry seems to be doing a good job at holding it all together during his first public appearance.
According to Perez Hilton, Prince Harry hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draw for the men's, women's and wheelchair's tournament. He kept it playful running around with the children playing rugby. He also kept his response to reporters just as playful.
One reporter on the scene, Emily Andrews, captured Prince Harry joking around about his attire and shaking the hands with each of the kids on the rugby team. He even gives them some words of encouragement.
"Watch👇🏻Harry jokes that he’s not really dressed for rugby in a suit and tie. Very happy to meet the school kids who are playing 🏉in the back garden at Buckingham Palace," Andrews tweeted.
Looks like Prince Harry is either at peace with his decision or really good at putting on a happy face.
Prince Harry also seemed to be quite over all of the talk about him and Meghan Markle's future. When reporters asked him questions regarding the subject, he gave them the cold shoulder the Harry way.
"Prince Harry ignored questions from the media in BP garden about how discussions are progressing on his and Meghan’s future. He had his back to the media but apparently laughed when the first question was asked. He’s still got his sense of humour! 😃 😊," Andrews added.
Since breaking away from their royal titles, Markle and Prince Harry are likely going to be forced to find a new way to earn an income. Since Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, is in charge of allocating funds, it will ultimately be his decision as to whether they will continue to receive money from the Royal Family. Markle, however, has a backup plan. She plans to return to film and make documentaries for good causes. Sounds like they have it all figured out.
Despite the past drama between Prince William and the couple, he is sympathetic towards what they're going through.
“It’s sometimes trying to get people to understand that it’s OK to have these challenges. We just need to deal with them and we need to move forward rather than just be stuck in paralysis and pretend they don’t happen,” Prince William told the reporters.
While Prince William seems to be referring to Markle and Prince Harry stepping down, he may be hinting at other family drama.
