I went to Chelsea yesterday and saw Harry's garden for Sentebale. I was so disappointed. Hardly any forget-me-nots which would have supplied some colour and it was impossible to see the design on the stone circle which was representing the pattern on a Sentebale cloak (inc. hearts) which was linked to Diana. The overall impact was grey concrete and chrome (the hut). TBH most of the gardens were bland but I was really looking forward to seeing Harry's garden, although it was popular in terms of numbers wanting to see it.

I've looked for the discussion on Chelsea Flower SHow, but have failed to find it so I've put this here because its about the Sentebale garden.

Prince Harry: paron of 6 organisations.

Prince Philip: paron of 800 organisations.

Disappointing.

Yes but Harry at 28 years old should be doing more than his 92 year old grandad.

It seems there is a high level of dissatisfaction with some, regarding the charity work of William, Kate, and Harry.

As you accumulate more patronages with time and don't become royal patron of all of them at the same time, it's normal that a 92 year old has more patronages than a 28 year old, no?

Perfectly normal, especially when the 92 yr old has been consort of the reigning monarch for 61 years. Rather unfair to compare Philips position to that of the Queen's grandson.

Of course he should. His Royal position comes with responsibilities.

Surely that is like asking why the Queen shouldn't retire? Or why Wallis Simpson shouldn't have been Queen? Or why Kate should have any children.

Of course his royal position comes with responsibilities, but not the same responsibilites as The Duke of Edinburgh, husband to the monarch who has been a full time royal for 60+ years?

Henry is a 28 year old young man who is currently doing his stint in the royal forces, just like his father and grandfather and great-grandfather and so on and so forth before him.

From 1971-1976 Prince Charles served in the navy, heir to the throne remember. By the time Prince Philip was 28 he had seen action for numerous years in WWII and after his marriage (married to the heir to the throne now) he returned to his naval duties for as long as he could.

Participating in one if not all three of the royal forces has been a royal tradition for decades, Henry is serving his Queen and his country and doing his family proud. He is also partaking in engagements when his full time job allows. When he chooses to leave the forces and become a full time royal then all the fan girls will be shouting from the rooftops. Until then let him actually do something he clearly enjoys.

As to your other, rather ridiculous example, I am one of those people who would say Why shouldn't the Queen retire (if she wanted to)? Why should Catherine be forced to have children if she didn't want them? ( Obviously she does so the question is mute) As for Wallis, well what was the point in even mentioning her?

Your questions have little relevance as to why Prince Henry should give up something he enjoys doing to magically accumalate 794 new patronages so he can live up to the standards of his 92 year old husband to The Queen grandfather?

Noone said he should accumulate hundreds of patronages. But as you rightly point out, Harry (or Henry as you insist on calling him) is doing his stint in the army largely out of tradition or to serve the Queen, but similarly I think he could do the same by taking on more royal duties, rather than taking a job in the army someone else can do.
