This Is What Prince Harry Misses Most About The U.K.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle inadvertently picked a tough time to relocate to Los Angeles, Calif. A global pandemic is not an ideal situation for getting settled and exploring a new area, right?

Although the couple seems to be adjusting to their new home quite fine despite the hurdles, there are rumors Prince Harry is struggling in LA. And he might be having a hard time considering he's away from everything he knows, including a popular British sport. This came to light on June 24, 2020, when England Rugby posted a video to its Instagram account, which included a cameo from rugby enthusiast, Prince Harry. During the video, he declared, "We all miss rugby." Despite this disappointment, the Duke of Sussex emphasized that the pause on sports "hasn't taken away our spirit." 

People reported that the video was a part of England Rugby's recent campaign called "Pitch In," which was launched during the pandemic to support local communities. From hosting charity events at the clubhouse to transforming game facilities into food banks for frontline workers, the mission is all about helping others. Joining this campaign is a perfect fit for Prince Harry as it combines two of his passions — philanthropy and rugby. In fact, he's the Honorary President of England Rugby and went with the team to Japan in 2019 to watch them play in the World Cup Final

So what else does Prince Harry miss about his old life? It's something very close to his heart.

Prince Harry reportedly misses being in the army

Stepping down from the Royal Family meant Prince Harry could no longer serve in the army, which is something he reportedly misses. "I'm one of the guys. I don't get treated any differently," Harry said in 2013 about why he loves military life, per The Guardian.

Perhaps Harry's nostalgia is made worse by how quickly "Megxit" happened. An "inside source" told The Telegraph, "He has been telling friends that he still can't believe this has happened. He can't believe his life has been turned upside down." The source added, "He was in a happy place when he was serving in the Army, then he met Meghan [Markle] and since then life has been great. But I don't think he foresaw things turning out quite as they did." 

The source clarified that the Duke of Sussex "doesn't blame Meghan" for what happened. They explained, "There is just a sense that he might have been better protected if he was still in the Army."

It's understandable that Harry would miss the sense of normalcy that the army brought to his life, as he probably doesn't get that feeling in many other situations. Plus, he had a decade-long career in the military. 

Although leaving the army was ultimately Prince Harry's choice, he never expected to lose rugby too. But, hopefully, the world will find its new normal sooner rather than later.
