I agree, of course, with all the sentiments about Harry's good qualities. I believe he and Daphne had quite a laugh about them both kissing the opposite cheek this time!

Awww, @Curryong! How fun and memorable. It must give Prince Harry a good feeling, as well as a sense of humility and responsibility to know how happy a mere glimpse of him, a handshake, a hug, and a kind word can give to so many people.

I kind of get the feeling too that its not emotions that are one sided when meeting Harry. I seriously believe that he takes away from these encounters as much as those meeting him walk away with.

That one picture of Harry meeting up with Daphne Dunn again will remain in my mind for a very long time.

It meant so much to an older woman to meet Harry in 2015 that she willingly sat in the pouring rain just to see him again. That is understandable. Harry is that kind of guy that leaves an impression on one I think.

Our Harry though is no actor. What you see with him is what you get. Looking at Daphne and Harry in the recent photo of the two of them, one gets the impression that Harry is genuinely and sincerely happy to meet up with an old friend again. I have no clue if Harry remembered her or was pointed out to him that she was in the crowd again but it does seem like Harry was greeting a much beloved grandmother. No matter the whys, Mrs. Dunn was a very happy person going to sleep that night.
Agree.

He's brilliant when it comes to dealing with ordinary people.
That's a trait you either got, or don't. You can't act the part. People with eventually see right through it. And while you can train yourself to be more comfortable in such a role, you can't "learn" it in a class either.
Harry is a natural. And that is worth gold for the BRF.

Fewer suits, more sport. Why Harry's latest whirlwind trip to Australia was his best yet.

What a beautiful article. It totally describes the person Harry is when it comes to the Invictus Games. He's not just behind the games, he's a part of it. His "I AM" shines through loud and clear.

Harry is definitely a man that is very comfortable in his own skin and day by day is defining what is important to him and a large part of what is important to him is being able to be of service to others.

The media does seem to want to play up the past as "the party prince" and dredge up old antics he once got up to but when I think about it, it was all part and parcel of finding out who he is and who he wanted to be. The adult Harry that has emerged from his own trials and tribulations is one that will be a golden asset for the UK.

You go Harry!

Sydney's CBD train stations have billboard size digital screens - and already ads for next year's Invictus Games are playing.

Everyone here will know about the games by the time they start - millions of people move through the city each work day.

Not bad digs. Too expensive for me though.

No Royal, or celebrity or Pippa Matthews or her husband on their honeymoon, or anyone else well known/famous, pays full price for hotels, holidays or anything else of that kind, as most people know.

I can imagine that its quite an experience to stay there. I'd be up all night looking out the windows at the world around me. Very nice place but a bit on the expensive side for me too.

Sydney's a very expensive place to live, Osipi. I think it ranks about 11th on the 30 most expensive places on earth for lifestyle. Homes on the North shore of Sydney Harbour are invariably multi-million dollar homes and it's rapidly becoming that way for any suburb near the CBD.

The harbour is spectacular, especially at night, and would be wonderful from those windows. However, I doubt Harry paid full price. It's not every day a Prince comes to stay, even for a couple of nights.

Thanks Curryong. I guess I can honestly say then that it would be a grand place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. Not if its that expensive. Then again.... if I had money to burn it'd be a top spot on my list.

Australia is always someplace I've wanted to go and should I win the lottery sometime soon, I'd love to be in Sydney for the Invictus Games when they open.

It doesn't matter to me at all what Harry paid for the room staying there. I've just really enjoyed watching how he puts a lot of time and energies into promoting the games and meeting with the athletes, their families and the general public that show up to see him.

Yep. In all sorts of ways it was a marvellous little trip of Harry's to promote the IG, and showed off his better qualities, warmth, enthusiasm, ability to connect with all sorts of people, in full measure.

BTW, there are lots of quite reasonably priced hotels around the Sydney CBD! Looking forward to lots of visitors, who might hopefully take a look around the rest of Australia as well!

A quick reminder/ heads up....

Tickets for Toronto's Invictus Games go on sale Tomorrow @ 10 am EST. All the information can be found @ the Toronto Invictus Games website.

I'm really sorry for not having that link, but this the 3rd straight night of All Nighters & not for anything to do w/me for a change!! Mom really did a number on her shoulder this Weekend putting the Garden in, can't sleep or get comfy to get to sleep, so she putters in the Kitchen. Which happens to be right over my Bedroom, so...Yeah. Anyway...

As someone who has attended a fair share of big Sporting Events over the yrs, I was so shocked when I checked out the Ticket Prices. These Games are actually affordable!!. To start w/half of the Events, roughly, are Free!! Those tend to be outdoor events held in Public Spaces. Like Wheelchair Tennis @ Nathan Phillips Square, which is Toronto's City Hall & Complex.

W/the exception of both Opening & Closing Ceremonies, which aren't that bad for an event like this either (especially considering both will be @ the Air Canada Centre, Home of the Toronto Maple Leafs & Toronto Raptors. Trust me, Ticket Prices for anything else held there are usually a bit higher...), do you have any idea how much the other half of the Tickets cost?

25 dollars across the board for all seating levels of the Venues being used. Yes, you read that right & it took me a few minutes to realize I really was seeing what I thought I was seeing. . They really want these to be a success, but the only way to do it, is to have those Venues full. I mean...This is actually something a Family could do & still not come close to how much just Tickets would cost for a Family to go to a Blue Jays Baseball Game!!

I still don't believe it actually, but I LOVE it!! . Good on Harry & the entire Team for doing it this way!!

Oh & Yes, of course I'll be trying to get Tickets to some Events Tomorrow Morning. Me? Miss out on screaming my head off for Team Canada at something big Sports wise!?! No way!! :) :) :)
