Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Current Events 2: April 2020-

I don’t quite know where this belongs:

The Duke of Sussex poses for photos during a recording of his introduction to a new animated TV Series of Thomas & Friends: The Royal Engine. It’s to make Thomas’ 75th Anniversary and the series contains cartoons of The Queen and Prince Charles.

Saw it. It was about a plastic surgery veterans group and a similar one from WWII.

He asked them questions. Basiy just doing what Kate and Wliam have been doing when they do questions at this time. It was very royal. I am just confused about the two of them.

This may have been pencilled in as a longstanding engagement. Harry is still a member of the Royal Family and as a vet himself has long been involved with veteran groups, like this Guinea Pig club as they called themselves. The men who belonged to such groups were badly burned during operations (usually RAF) in WW2 and were operated on by a fantastic pioneer of what was then known as plastic surgery. Very basic but to people with badly burned faces, a lifesaver.

Some more from the chat with the veterans. A promise to one during the war from the surgeon Sir Archibald 'New eyelids, new nose, new lips to kiss the girls.' His widow recalled his kisses on the show in conversation with Harry.

I remember as a child seeing an ex pilot who was a member of the Guinea Pig club. His face was curiously pink and shiny, but goodness knows what it would have looked like before. Tons of scars and puckering, I would imagine.

I love this. Actually what we have seen of Harry and Meghan, themselves, since the exodus to greener fields have shown us that they're *not* forgetting to be involved with things they've already committed to and so far, I've seen no evidence that they've done anything to "promote" themselves as a "brand" although I did, for a bit, get that feeling with the book by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. Anyone can have a bad opinion day once in a while.

To emphasize how traumatically and deep rooted some injuries are to veterans , once upon a time I spent time in a VFW hall (Veterans of Foreign Wars) playing pool. There was a guy there that wanted to take everyone on in a pool game for money. It seemed crass behavior to me until I got a good glimpse of the man's forearm. On it was tattooed in blue letters a serial number. He was a survivor of a concentration camp in WWII.

A lot is hitting home these days of people being made aware of what the world went through with WWI and WWII with this pandemic and how its affecting people world wide. For Harry to stay up front and personal with these efforts he's doing for various veterans, no matter what or how they've suffered, has more meaning today than ever. Most of us have felt the effects of this pandemic we're going through and its actually *nothing* in comparison to what people have suffered and gone through and survived.

Thanks Harry for the reminder!! Beautifully done!

It was informative about them. Harry didn't really say much at all. He just said to her "good for kissing." The vets themselves were interesting. He just did what the rest of the royal, family have been doing.

Lovely that Harry is still staying in touch. It seems they reached out to him and he wanted to be involved.

Harry has always been passionate about his work with veterans so I'm glad to hear that he has stayed in touch with them - I'd be very surprised if he didn't.

Harry and Meghan joined a staff meeting of the Crisis Text Line organization yesterday. This has UK and US ties. It has a partnership with Shout! which Harry and Meghan helped launch with William and Kate.

Yes, I saw that. An excellent organisation, and how excited were the staff to have Harry and Meghan join them!

Excellent news for Shout as now they've had a chance to hear from the Sussexes (Thursday) and yesterday they heard from the Cambridges.

It's interesting how they continue to do some 'royal' activities - I still have a hard time understanding what 'role' they see for themselves as it seems to be a very 'royal' one; as in, why would this organization talk to a random guy/duke if it was not for him being PRINCE Harry?

Well said. I, too, have queried these "royal engagements" being undertaken by Harry from time

I think because of the recent situation they're really not able to do anything more than meeting with people via videoconference. They also expressed their desire to support their patronages and other charities, Harry chose do to it the way he's known for years. Not only that, they need some time to find their footing - it's been barely months.

So Henry visited the Roundwood Youth Centre in Brent, where SATH is based two years ago.

Harry has been a major support for them. Not sure what his status has to do with continuing that, especially when they made it clear they would. Why shouldn't he?
