Okay, so I googled it and it wasn't a recent story. I can't find the actual interview, but there's several reports from April 2007 describing an interview between Harry and Jeremy Clarkson where Harry revealed that he is dyslexic.

I have never heard that Harry is dyslexic. It was announced when Beatrice was about 8 that she was. If Harry was dyslexic it would have been announced - unless Diana and Charles were ashamed of being the parents of a child with that problem while Andrew and Sarah weren't. I have no doubts that if Harry had that problem then he it would have been announced.

Googled it too and its everywhere. It may have taken time to discover it and then his Mother died.

To be fair Iluvbertie I never read about all that stuff you wrote about Harrys exam results so maybe you didnt get a chance to read about this.

I remember when he made the statement about the dyslexia. It meant a lot to my daughter who was 10 at the time and had just been diagnosed with dyslexia. She had to change schools and had been feeling ' dumb'. Since then she's a Harry fan-- someone else has this. She's doing great now at a college prep. High school.

There are several royals who are dyslexic.
Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Princess Beatrice of the United Kingdom, Princess Victoria of Sweden, Prince Louis of Luxembourg, King Juan Carlos of Spain and there is more, now I am not remembering.
That's a problem that people can deal with, often people have this problem and don't even know it.
I don't remember reading about Prince Harry being dyslexic...

Unlike the late Olav V of Norway, King Carl Gustav's of Sweden's dyslexia has come in for a degree of mockery because he's not overly popular. His daughter Victoria has talked about her difficulties with school (and she has face-blindness, an additional struggle). Apparently all three of CG's kids (Victoria, Carl Philip, and Madeleine) have dyslexia.

Prince Emmanuel of Belgium also has unspecified learning issues for which he has attended a different school.

If Harry has dyslexia, it certainly hasn't been discussed to the degree you would think. Least of all by Harry.

Just googled it and apparently he is quoted as saying he was dyslexic when he was 22. I don't remember anything about it and it hasn't been brought up very much over the years, especially in comparison to him opening up about his mental health struggles and things like the importance of getting an AIDS test. There's more on Beatrice talking about it.

It would not have been an obstacle to joining the Army if he passed the applicable tests.

Perhaps the family kept it quieter not out of shame but for privacy when their lives were already being examined from every single angle as children.

Interesting article from May 1997:

Allegedly Radley in Abingdon, Oxfordshire was being considered as an alternative to Eton, but it's still got an academic reputation.

He's certianly mentioned it.. but why should it be discussed? Unless it gives inspiration to people with dyslexia. And Harry has done a lot of things in the past years that will be talked about...

So why not mention it? Why not give Bea a hand with her patronages in the past? Why not talk about how it's been a struggle for him? He's been willing to share his awful traumas and the mental health problems that came from that. He could have been hugely inspiring to kids who have trouble at school. But for some reason it's just been left ambiguous. Even now, when he seeks activism and sympathy, it's never brought up. It's puzzling.

Snort. He has a whole bag of trauma and mistreatments and disabilities and causes he can pull from when he wants to be a SJW And/or act Woke when it’s suits him or his wifey of course.

he doesn't have to mention it, and royals dont usually "join up" with other royals on their patronages. There are royals who are dyslexic and are willing to share their experiences, which may be a help to some people, so why should Harry mention it if he does not want to. It may be that they consider dyslexia is Bea's patronage and leave it to her

And when Harry still chooses to mention nearly every other issue in his life, and Bea (to my knowledge) has never said "my cousin has the same thing", the suggestion is either that Harry has never been formally diagnosed, or that his learning issues and problems are something else, rather than "other royals talk about dyslexia but Harry doesn't want to".

Royals dont usually, as far as I know, mention each other's problems or jump in on each other's patronages. Harry HAS apparently said he's dyslexic.. whether he was formally diagnosed or he knows that he has difficulties with reading etc....and feels that he has got dyslexia.. But there's no need IMO for him to mention it any further. He has indeed talked about a lot of mental health issues - IMO he's shared rather a lot of stuff, so if his dyslexia isn't something he wants to talk about, why should he? There is no obligation to share all on'es problems with the world, and its quite possible to become a patron on some issue without sharing that issue oneself.
