Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shown their support for US veterans on Veterans Day, just days after Harry’s brother, Prince William, vowed to be “a force for real change” in the world.
Harry and Meghan visited the Navy SEAL Foundation’s new training facility in San Diego, California, on Wednesday. The facility provides critical treatment to Navy SEAL warriors and veterans, helping them to heal physically and mentally from combat.
During their visit, Harry and Meghan met with veterans and their families, and learned about the programs and services that the facility offers. They also participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the facility.
Meghan wore a cardigan emblazoned with poppies, which are a symbol of remembrance for fallen soldiers.
The visit comes amid fresh war of words between Harry and Meghan and the British royal family. Harry recently told CBS News that he had been “cut off financially” by his family and that he had to rely on his inheritance from his mother, Princess Diana, to support himself and his family.
William reportedly “furious” over Harry’s interview, and a source close to the family told The Sun that William felt that Harry had “crossed a line.”
Despite the ongoing rift with his family, Harry remains committed to his work with veterans. He is the patron of several charities that support veterans, and he has spoken out on several occasions about the importance of mental health care for veterans.
Harry’s visit to the Navy SEAL Foundation’s training facility is a powerful reminder of his commitment to veterans and his dedication to making a real difference in the world.
