I think that if he where to stay it would of caused problems like the last time he was on tour and instead of going back to England he went to Toronto. Now that he is officially home, he can do what he pleases.

That's what I was thinking. Do they usually put out return flights or landing? That doesn't count as an event. Going early isn't as much an issue since he could be checking on the preparations. He doesn't have anything on his calendar until next week.

I think so. That's one of the reasons we knew he didn't return directly to London after the Caribbean tour.

We don't know about any engagements besides the ones announced for next week but it's possible that he has one or two that we don't yet know about. Or perhaps he has other personal business.

Just a note to advise that posts relating to Harry's forthcoming visit to Denmark have been moved to the Prince Harry: Official Visit to Denmark - October 25-26, 2017 thread.

Will he be on air talking, will he be live or will it be prerecorded?

Barack and Michelle Obama have invited Harry to participate in Chicago at the Obama Inaugural Summit on October 31st, and he has accepted. Harry will speak on youth leadership and disadvantaged youth.

Someone on Twitter said it was a slap in the face to Will that he was not invited and that it must sting William. I think it just that Harry is much closer to the Obama.

That's just ridiculous. William and Harry have their own things apart from each other too. Neither of them is going to be 'stung' about not getting invited to X.

There also may be another distinct possibility. Its possible that for this event, the invitation was sent to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as the foundation does have a youth leadership program called Coach Core. The decision for Harry to go and attend may have been a joint decision.

To imply that William was slighted or overlooked by anyone is pure imagination.

Good points. My feeling is it was sent just to Harry, though.

Good call Osipi. And doesn't William have a pregnant wife renowned for not keeping the best of health while pregnant. No-brainer!

It could be a reciprocative move by the Royal Foundation also. The Obamas were all too happy to help with the Invictus Games promotion last year when they were held in Orlando. The Invictus Games actually is under the umbrella of the Royal Foundation. Now, the Royal Foundation has been called on to reciprocate when it is a project sponsored by the Obamas.

These kind of events are usually done between organizations that have their own planners and decision making teams with people like W&K&H and the Obamas spearheading them. The more I think about it, I do seriously doubt that the invitation was issued between personal friends but rather between different organizations with similar interests.

Alternatively it was one nasty divisive comment from a sad person on Twitter that isnt worth commenting on.

Yes, I think this is it. He seems to have built a genuine relationship with them over the last few years. And that is good for Harry and the RF, in general, as it brings them a lot of good press.

Who knows, Harry and Barack Obama may have discussed the Summit when he visited Harry at KP a few months ago and he agreed. When you see the two of them together, like at the IG you can see a warm friendship.

I agree. It's a shame that some people have nothing better to do than to project their own feelings onto a situation that has nothing to do with them.

How would anyone think it a slap to William? Just because he is future king doesn't mean he has to be invited to everything

And I don't think the invitation was sent to the foundation and they decided to send Harry. Honestly I wouldn't be surprise if the Obamas have never heard of coach core. Its not exactly the most public work that the foundation does. The heads together campaign, invictus, yes. Coach core the Obamas could be forgiven for not being aware of.

I think it very much was a personal invitation. Harry has built a rapport with the couple through Invictus. Where William has met them on the state visit, Harry has met them and interacted with them for Invictus. It seems to me the Obamas sent an invitation for Harry to be part of the kick off of their initiative and he accepted. Common ground for him and the couple.

People just liking to stir up muck where there is none
