...and when I see folks say Harry will be not important in 20 years or no attention given to him I firmly believe they are misjudging that situation. He is going to be relevant in the BRF until his death.
I'd like to believe that, but then I look at Prince Andrew... once in the same boat.

Popularity and relevance to the monarchy are two totally completely different things. Andrew actually (going by Iluvbertie's information on the Court Circular's listings of royal engagements) is only surpassed by Charles and Anne as far as numbers of working engagements.

No one call predict the future but it just stands to reason that with Harry being the second son of a monarch and then brother of a monarch, he will play a pretty relevant role in the monarchy throughout his lifetime as far as the monarchy itself is concerned.

The Invictus Games and Harry's participation in a lot of what needs to happen to put these games on the world stage is a good indication for me that in the future, he will also be very much involved in whatever it is that he does as a senior working royal. He's got a lot of dedication in him towards what he does and that is going to be a big asset.

IMO Harry and Andrew have very different personalities. Part of why Andrew's star power waned was because of his rather entitled attitude, plus of course, Sarah's antics reflected poorly on her ex.. Harry simply has more charisma and seems to not be an arrogant sort. Andrew hob nobs with the wealthy and oligarchs, Harry with orphans in Lesotho and injured service personnel, thus my guess is that Harry will stay popular far longer than his Uncle Andrew did.
I just can't picture Andrew in the popcorn stealing scenario, for example, yet it is such a delightful captured moment allowing us a glimpse of a light hearted Harry in action.
On a slightly related note, Beatrice also spoke at the WE day event which Harry made the surprise appearance at.

You really can't compare Harry to Andrew...very different eras and situations. Harry and William hold a special place in people's hearts due to who they are, who their parents are...Andrew has not helped his cause and neither has his wife. Andrew doesn't have what Harry has in the way of charisma either...I don't think he has ever been that way with the public.

Back on topic please, The Invictus Games.

Further discussion comparing Harry to his uncle / other RF members or discussing his 'worth' to history will be removed.

Thanks for these. The meeting between Harry and the 102 year old vet was heartwarming. It's almost the end, unfortunately, of a week that has been full of humour, bravery, extraordinary physical exertion and great pride. I think it's been marvellous.

I don't get to say this very often but kudos to the Daily Mail for one fantastic article. I sat and read through it twice. It was that good.

This is our Harry at his very best. How easily he could have done his part, showed up for some of the events, waved to the crowds and then do whatever pleased him in Toronto. Harry goes the extra mile. He isn't just the patron of these games but through his actions, he shows that these games, and more importantly, the people that are there participating in the games, are a big part of his life and his heart. People matter.

I loved the message he sends out to the crowd at WE day. He speaks from the heart and every word had meaning and hopefully will be words remembered not only by those that heard him speak, but all of us that read those words.

This is a man making a difference on the world stage. I get the feeling too that he's just begun to make his mark.

The connect he has with these veterans and their families is genuine and that's what makes Harry stand out amongst a bunch of rather stuffy royals ! He doesn't just show up at an event n give the customary handshake rather he goes the extra mile with the common man and this will what will be Harry's legacy - his human touch !

ICAM. My sister knows literally nothing about Royals and cares even less-but she is completely charmed by Harry.

Without wanting to turn the thread political, seeing Obama does make me realise how much I miss him! (And I'm not even American, haha.) It's really lovely to see him there supporting Harry and the games today.

The footage of Harry's little popcorn thief from the other day was adorable - just goes to show that young children aren't bothered about impressing royalty

Here for Obama and Biden.

Good to see them in eachother company again. We know the friendship between Obama and Biden is real, but they genuinely seem to really like Harry too, which is nice to see.

I am surprised and thrilled to see the former president and his "brother" Biden at this event, I was not expecting it!
