Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, have held onto their patronages despite stepping down as senior royals. While the couple have relocated to the USA they each continue to honour their links to several UK charities. WellChild children’s charity is one of several organisations with which the Duke still has ties and he honoured his work with them at the weekend.
On Sunday, WellChild shared a statement from Prince Harry on Twitter in which the Duke responded to the organisation’s 2019 to 2020 impact report.
The WellChild tweet read: “Our Impact Report includes a letter from WellChild Patron, The Duke of Sussex who praises WellChild for its work during the pandemic.”
Harry’s thoughtful message to the charity read: “I am incredibly proud to say that WellChild has moved with urgency and purpose to tackle the new challenges that children with complex needs and their families have faced because of this crisis.
“Life for everyone has been tough.”
The analyst said: “The style and the wording of this short message seem to suggest Harry might be back to his more sure-footed, action man self.”
Judi claimed the message moves away from the “guru-like” language fans have begun to expect from Harry since his move to the States.
Judi added: “The structure is powerful, concise and to the point, which is a world away from Harry’s recent guru, mantra-munching mode where he has sounded like a man keen to campaign for non-specific global change, using his own problems and experiences as a template.”
According to the analyst, Harry’s snappy use of language is “more effective” and harks back to his days in the military.
She said: “Here Harry sounds practical, energetic and full of encouragement.
“His praise lacks waffle and mantras and is all the more effective for that.
“This sounds like military Harry, speaking of his pride in the way that Well Child has ‘moved with urgency and purpose.’
“He uses action-based, ‘fight’ words to describe the work Well Child has done, including ‘Tackle’ ‘Challenges’ ‘Tough’ ‘Crisis’ and ‘Urgency’ and the use of these words make him sound genuinely motivational.”
Judi claimed the message strikes an empathetic note without being preachy.
She added: “Even his more empathetic sentiments are concise and there is no attempt to share his own experiences here, just a man standing back in pride and encouragement.
“He refers to the crisis being ‘tougher than most of us can imagine’ for ‘these families’ and the blend of strength and determination with a more humble approach suggests a sense of growing, more level-headed maturity from the Prince.”
