From Good Morning America - George asked his parents 'Why is Harry being so quiet'

Can't resist, can you, Rudolph?

Anyway, the athletes have said they've felt inspired by being able to compete in the international arena, and that's the whole point of these Games!

Sure Invictus gets mentioned but it seems like the media won't interview him just for Invictus, he needs to talk about his personal life as well
In Harry's defense, its the interviewers bringing up George not Harry. And a lot of the questions, he deflects and doesn't speak about George directly. In the GMA interview, he looks visibly uncomfortable when MO and Robin were talking about George.

If KP said beforehand that Harry was going to only talk about Invitcus, are the press going to say pass on interviewing him?

Harry has done a huge amount to publicise these Games right from the beginning and has tried as hard as he can to bring the athletes who are competing into focus. They've praised him for being there for them, and that's all that matters.

You are absolutely correct. It is a shame that Harry is spending time with these shows as they only want the "gossip" type interviews with laughing and flirting garbage along with light hearted questions. I personally believe Harry should have been interviewed on ESPN, Fox Sports, etc. Those are the interviewers that are interested in the sport and trials that these wonderful young men are going through. Regular morning TV "News" shows have really become a joke.

Fox Sports probably not going to want to promote an event on ESPN.

That's universal I fear. And when they once in every decade or two do ask an intelligent question it get so many reruns you'd forgiven for believing a Pulitzer Prize is coming up.

Not knowing anything about Fox Sports, why wouldn't Fox of all networks not want to put focus on veterans?

Sadly I've come to expect this line of questioning when it comes to young royals. I agree that a sports network would do a better job on focusing upon the athletes, the games and those involved in the coordinating the events.

Giving interviews to People, Hello, The Today Show and Good Morning America isn't going to get you serious coverage.

Maybe an evening news program will contact Harry and go more in depth.

Harry's already got a tremendous amount of attention for the Games and the athletes. He's trending on social media, gained praise from Twitter, blogs, comments on online newspapers and posters on Forums for his efforts. He gave an interview to the Sunday Times. Is that serious enough?

Other royals, one notices, have been featured on People and Hello etc, haven't they Rudolph?
And at least they've had more to write about with these Games which Harry has so successfully promoted, than his hair and clothes!

Serious enough isn't really an issue here. In today's time, it is about getting out to as many as possible. The magazines like People, and shows like GMA have a HUGE fan base. They are read and watched in numerous countries. The fact that Harry is trending on Instagram and twitter, and is all over the news, is a clear sign that he is doing something right.

Fox/fox sports have promoted the game. No interviews directly but they have shown their support.

of course they are going to ask about him and family but the majority has been placing the focus on the veterans and wounded soldiers. on the Invictus Games

Certainly you have a point. We forget Harry has editorial control over the articles and chooses the titles. Not to mention he presents interviewers with a list of questions to ensure his mother and George can be included. I mean the clips would take time to arrange of his mother, so he must give them at least a day or two.
