Being a military veteran suggests Prince Harry will continue to serve the country for the rest of his life, says a friend of the Prince of Wales.
TV speaker and former Royal Marine JJ Chalmers stated that, because of the duke’s years in the military, he will constantly continue looking after “the broader community”.
Asked about Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview, Chalmers told newspaper: “Harry has actually made it really clear, not simply throughout that interview however before it, that he wishes to continue to serve the greater neighborhood– especially the ones he cares very much about, consisting of the militaries neighborhood.
” Harry will continue to serve because he is a veteran and that is what he is doing now, albeit from a different location. Everybody are in various places now.
” It is veterans looking after the larger community. And we have actually shared that objective given that we met.”
He continued: “Harry to me is an impressive veteran. And to me it is generally because he is the world’s most famous veteran, but he would inform you the things he is doing are the very same things that Dave Henson is doing, or David Wiseman, or JJ Chalmers.”
