Prince Harry

How many languages can Prince Harry speak?

Prince Harry

The education in the royal family gave Prince Harry exposure to diverse cultures and provided opportunities for him to learn many languages.

Although Prince Harry is well-known for his humanitarian efforts, military service, and commitment to numerous causes, many fans may wonder about the extent of his linguistic abilities.

The nation’s most prestigious schools are attended by the royal family. Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and William, the Prince of Wales, were students at the prestigious Eton College. According to Hello! magazine, multilingual Prince William put in a lot of study and graduated with two As in geography and history of art and a C in biology. But his brother, Prince Harry left with a D in geography and a B in art. Prince Harry most undoubtedly didn’t prioritise his education and was more of a party guy.”

Harry “was a peak high-school bro” at Eton, according to the Observer. He had very distinctive interests at the time. Images from his dorm room feature a cutout of Halle Berry and other models. Though to be fair, there were also pictures of his late mother and the stunning “Mario Testino coffee table book” including his shots of Princess Diana for Vanity Fair.

While studying in college, Prince Harry seemed to have picked up a little bit of Spanish or Italian as he became more and more of a travel enthusiast. Harry worked with African Aids orphans and sheered sheep down under, according to the BBC. Nevertheless, given the royal obligations of seeing foreign dignitaries and representing Britain in other countries, languages would surely be a major benefit, isn’t it? So, what languages is Prince Harry fluent in then?

“Most of the French I learnt in school has been forgotten. During a trip to New Zealand, while working as an active royal, Harry admitted, “I wish I could speak German” (via OK! magazine). Harry isn’t one to talk in tongues, as evidenced by a recent campaign for the 2023 Olympics where he displayed his language abilities. “Hi, Düsseldorf. In shaky German, he addressed the engaged audience, “Meghan and I are pleased to be here today” (via Woman and Home). Harry then returned to speaking in English, telling the audience how excited he was to try their renowned beer.

Meghan Markle has Prince Harry beat in the language stakes. So what languages can Meghan speak? Per People, she speaks fluent española et bien français. 

Harry, the Duke of Sussex, sadly never inherited his late grandfather’s linguistic talents. Prince Philip spoke German, French, and English with ease. Prince Harry has even previously delivered a speech in Arabic on quite a few occasions. During his 2018 trip to New Zealand, he also made a heroic effort to speak in six different languages in one speech. On camera, it’s cute to see Harry try saying “hello” in Cook Islands Maori, Samoan, Tongan, Fijian, Niuean, and Maori. In an Invictus video, Harry also had everyone laugh when he tried Dutch.

The Duke revealed in a video call with Meghan and Malala Yousafzai that he hadn’t acknowledged how fortunate he was to have been educated. “We do take [school] for granted, and it is a privilege,” he said. “But every single person, every single child, every single young person needs an education.” Harry also shared that he should have been more appreciative to have attended Eton College. “At the time, I certainly probably wasn’t as grateful, but looking back at it now, I’m very, very blessed with having such an amazing opportunity,” he admitted.

Prince Harry reveals his one habit that Meghan still doesn’t understand

Prince Harry

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry has opened up about his weird routine that drives his wife, Meghan Markle, crazy.

Prince Harry reveals his one home habit that Meghan fails to understand inspired by King Charles.

Whether it’s checking all the windows in the house are shut before going to bed or unplugging every kitchen electrical appliance to avoid burning down the house, we’re all guilty of creating unconventional habits at home. But don’t worry as Prince Harry has spilled the beans on his quirky home habits for all his royal fans. 

Prince Harry, once a prominent member of the British royal family with his wife Meghan Markle, has always enchanted the public with his life behind palace walls. While much attention has been focused on their departure from royal duties, little is known about the Duke’s day-to-day routines within the confines of his home.

Prince Harry and Meghan have been married together for almost six years now, but he’s disclosed that there’s one habit of his that his wife still doesn’t understand. The Duke of Sussex said he’s a stickler for turning the lights off when he leaves a room – something that’s been planted in both him and his brother Prince William by their eco-conscious dad, Prince Charles.

Speaking in the BBC documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, the 34-year-old said: “He’s a stickler for turning lights off and that’s now something that I’m obsessed with.” William added: “I know, I’ve got serious OCD with light switches now.”

Harry then shared his wife’s views on the “obsession” and asked if Kate felt the same, saying: “Which is insane because I don’t know if your wife does it but my wife certainly goes, ‘Well, why turn the lights off? It’s dark. I go, ‘We only need one light, we don’t need, like, six,’ and all of a sudden, it becomes a habit.”

Meghan moved into Prince Harry’s home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, when they announced their engagement in November 2017. The couple got married in May 2018 and Prince Archie was born a year later in 2019. In 2020 the couple decided to leave the royal family and Princess Lilibet Diana was born a year later.

While Prince Harry and Meghan ventured on their journey beyond the royal family, their home habits took on new meaning. No longer restrained by the rules of royal protocol, they were free to adopt a more flexible and personalized approach to domestic life. From casual family dinners to unplanned outings with friends, their home became a sanctuary where they could truly be themselves.

Despite their departure from royal duties, Prince Harry and Meghan remain committed to their core values, including environmental conservation, philanthropy, and family. While their decision to step back from royal life may have been met with scepticism by some, it allowed them the privilege to prioritize what truly mattered to them: their happiness, well-being, and the well-being of their children.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s net worth has been revealed four years after their royal exit

Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reside in a lavish mansion in Montecito, California with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s mansion is reportedly worth $14 million (£11m), with the couple living close to the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Katy Perry.

According to reports, the Sussexes have a combined net worth of $60 million (£48m), despite their stepping down from their roles as senior working royals in 2020 and being forced to repay the taxpayer costs for the renovation of Frogmore Cottage, their former Windsor home.

In May 2020, it was reported that the Duke and Duchess would repay taxpayer costs for the Frogmore Cottage renovations, with them planning to make the payments over the next decade. The total refurbishment costs were estimated at around £2.4 million, meaning they would pay around £18,000 a month until completely paid in full.

Since moving from England to the States, the couple have secured several lucrative deals. In 2020, the same year that they announced their royal departure, the couple signed a deal with Netflix which was reportedly worth around $100 million (£80m). They then secured a $20 million (£17m) advance from publisher Penguin Random House for a reported four-book deal, which included Spare.

The couple also signed a lucrative $25 million (£18m) deal with Spotify in late 2020, which saw Meghan Markle release her Archetypes podcast. A joint statement from the couple’s company, Archewell, and streaming platform Spotify said that they had “mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together,” but later a Spotify executive branded the couple “f***ing grifters”.

The Sussexes’ many lucrative deals came in after announcing they were retiring from royal duties. When the couple were working royals they received 95% of their annual income from Harry’s father, the King. According to reports, The taxpayer-funded Sovereign Grant made up the other 5% of the Sussexes’ earnings. And when they stepped down as senior royals, King Charles gave them “a substantial sum”, according to reports.

Meanwhile, before Meghan Markle married into the British Royal Family, she was worth an estimated $5 million (£3.5m). Prior to meeting the Prince, Meghan was an actress working on the hit legal drama Suits. Meghan famously portrayed the role of Rachel Zane in the hit TV show, with her earning a reported $50,000 per episode (£37K).

Kate Middleton

Prince Harry feels ‘more spare than ever’ after Kate’s cancer diagnosis, says royal expert

Prince Harry

Royal expert Dr Tessa Dunlop suggests Prince Harry’s feelings might be conflicted following Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis.

The gulf between Prince Harry and his family was never more evident than in the wake of Princess Kate’s sad cancer announcement.

Harry, who used to be incredibly close to his sister–in-law, was only informed about her diagnosis a short time before her video was released to the public. There was even a ‘strategy’ put in place regarding the Sussexes and when they should be told.

It’s not long until Harry returns to the UK in May to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. And there is speculation he and William could reunite and start to heal their rift – not least because of Kate’s health diagnosis. But, Harry and Meghan are on the back foot, according to royal historian and expert Dr Tessa Dunlop. Highlighting his self-described role as the ‘spare,’ Dr Dunlop speculates Harry may feel even more isolated within the family

Shortly after Kate Middleton’s brave video message about her cancer diagnosis was broadcast, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a private message of support to the Prince and Princess of Wales, according to a report by the Independent.

Royal author Dr Tessa Dunlop told the Mirror: “Harry is the self-identifying royal ‘spare’. And in the wake of his sister-in-law’s health revelations, I expect he feels more spare than ever,” as quoted by the Independent.

Amid concerns of a growing rift, speculation has arisen about Harry’s potential visit to his brother William when he returns to the UK this May to host an event for the Invictus games, as per the report.

Dr Dunlop expressed compassion for the couple, who left their royal duties for a life in California in 2020. She added, “No, they don’t have cancer, and yes, they have been publicly critical of the British Royal Family. But in our own families, how many of us hold back our feelings on the off-chance a sibling or sister-in-law might get sick?” as quoted by the Independent.

Despite the public scrutiny and potential conspiracy theories, Harry’s conflicted emotions seem to stem from his desire to support his sister-in-law while grappling with his self-proclaimed status as the “spare” heir. As the family navigates this challenging period, all eyes are on the dynamics between the brothers and their respective support systems, the report further added.

Princess Catherine’s recent cancer diagnosis has brought attention to a concerning trend – an increasing number of younger adults being affected by the disease. Despite being only 42 years old and otherwise healthy, the Princess of Wales’s diagnosis highlights that cancer is no longer a condition primarily associated with older individuals.

Everything indicates to a possible reconciliation between the royal family and Prince Harry

Prince Harry

In recent few days, whispers of a reconciliation between the royal family and Prince Harry have been circulating.

The decision to leave behind his royal role was undoubtedly a difficult one for Prince Harry.

However, it also gave an opportunity to Prince Harry to forge his path and define his individuality outside the confines of royal tradition. It’s no mystery that Prince Harry’s exit from royal duties stirred up controversy within the family. Nonetheless, recent events indicate that tensions may be softening.

King Charles’ relationship with Prince Harry has been fractured since he and Meghan Markle revealed they would be stepping down as senior members of the royal family back in March 2020. Subsequently, the release of their Netflix docu-series Harry & Meghan and the publication of Harry’s memoir Spare have only widened the gap between father and son.

Surprisingly, however, it appears that despite Harry disclosing many personal family secrets and actually tagging his father King Charles as unaffectionate and unable to communicate with him during his childhood years – the monarch, King Charles III, would be open to a reconciliation with his youngest son, Prince Harry.

One of the major reasons behind this could be Princess Anne. Princess Anne’s hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Recent reports indicate she’s been shouldering the lion’s share (70%) of royal responsibilities. The spike comes in the wake of King Charles and Kate Middleton stepping away from their royal duties as both grapple with health conditions and intense media scrutiny towards Kate for posting an ‘edited’ family image on Mother’s Day.

As Princess Anne’s workload increases, there’s a presumption about who will step up to share the burden. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s exit from the royal family left a gap that hasn’t been filled yet. Nevertheless, with the recent developments concerning Princess Anne’s responsibilities, some reason that it’s time for Harry and Meghan to rethink their decision. The calls for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to return to the UK gain voice to relieve these mounting workloads

King Charles sincerely talked about his mother and her relationship with the family “Mum (the Queen) adored Harry, right to the end, and Harry loved her. She met Lilibet and loved her great-granddaughter, but that was not an issue,” What was at issue was the handling of the story that came after the naming of Lilibet. And it was how the Sussexes put out a statement saying the Queen had been entirely supportive of the name, and it was largely stated that she had given them her blessing.”

One of the royal experts said: “This was followed by a BBC report saying that the Queen had not given her blessing… then you had the situation where you had the Sussexes firing off legal letters to the BBC and others, and more or less demanding the palace corroborate their version of events.

The couple’s place in the royal family has come up again in the spotlight due to Princess Anne’s workload after King Charles and Catherine fell sick. Calls for Prince Harry and Meghan to return have been made, but will they follow their course?

While reconciliation may not happen overnight, the signals are promising. As time passes, wounds may recover, and family ties may be repaired. Who knows?
