If you are looking for a podcast to listen to check out Declassified Episode 11 and hear Michael Coates and Prince Harry discuss Harry's past work with charity Team Rubicon UK. Team Rubicon UK is an organization made up of veteran servicemen and servicewomen who 'deploy' to volunteer in emergencies and disasters in the hardest to reach parts of the world. Members are currently assisting the UK's National Health Service (NHS) and UK's military command in helping where needed with the coronavirus pandemic.
Harry discusses the attributes that former servicemen and women have which make them ideally suited for volunteering including; commitment to country and community; selflessness; a sense of family first; the ability to work as a team and wanting to help others.
A few media sources in the UK have reported that during this interview Harry said the media were overplaying the seriousness of Covid-19 with Harry saying that things "are better than we have been led to believe". The context of this quote was not fully explained. Harry was talking about the human spirit and how the emphasis in the media is often on the negative aspects of isolation, rather than highlighting the many good stories of people helping out one another in this time of uncertainty.

I know we should not encourage the tabloids to hunt out pictures of Meghan, Harry and Archie, but it was lovely to see a recent pic. of the "Adorable Archie" just ahead of his second birthday on May 6th 2021. And look at Meghan's bump. Baby No.2 is growing nicely and it appears that it won't be long before Archie's sister arrives. Was Archie off to a play date? (And in case anyone wants to bitch about the fact that Meghan is not wearing head-to-toe black, in mourning for Prince Phillip, Princess Anne was out and about this week wearing a very non-black hue called Red - just getting this in first before the trolls start) Photo as published by the New York Post
