Prince Harry gets awkwardly hassled by fan at UK Invictus Games event: ‘That doesn’t even make sense!’



Prince Harry had an awkward interaction with a fan during his trip to London.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, was outside following an event for the Invictus Games at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday when the uncomfortable situation occurred.

Harry greeted a group of bystanders who all had their phones out to take pictures and videos of the exiled royal.

As Harry went down the line of spectators, a woman moved one of two phones that she was holding toward Harry’s face.

Harry touched the woman’s arm, which prompted her to pull her hands back away from him.

“You’ve got two cameras?” he asked. “How did you end up with two cameras? That doesn’t even make sense!”

Following the brief interaction, the father of two continued greeting the public with a smile on his face.

Harry arrived in his home country on Tuesday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

He launched the Invictus Games in 2014 as multisport Paralympic-style games for wounded or injured servicemen and veterans.

While Harry was at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday, his father, King Charles III, attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace with his wife, Queen Camilla.

Charles, 75, returned to his public royal duties last week as he continues to receive outpatient treatment for his cancer diagnosis.

The Post confirmed on Tuesday that Harry will not be meeting with his estranged father in London this week due to the king’s “full” schedule.

“The duke, of course, is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon,” Harry’s spokesperson told The Post.

Charles’ busy schedule includes the garden party at Buckingham Palace, as well as his weekly audience with United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and other previously scheduled engagements.

Harry is not expected to spend time with his brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, either.

To make matters worse for the duke, he was reportedly forced to book a hotel room ahead of his trip after not being offered a bed at any royal residences peppered across the country.

This is Harry’s first time on his home soil since his visit to Charles following the monarch’s cancer diagnosis in February. This is also Harry’s first trip since learning of Kate’s cancer diagnosis in March.

Harry flew to London alone as his wife, Meghan Markle, and their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, stayed back in the US at their Montecito, California, mansion.
