Prince Harry’s post had fans talking for the wrong reasons

Prince Harry hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draws for the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments at Buckingham Palace on Jan. 16 and he posted a video from the royal engagement.

The clip showed Prince Harry happily hosting the event, greeting the players as they prepared the Rugby League World Cup draw. Fans were thrilled to see him looking to be in good spirits after the recent announcement that he and Meghan Markle are leaving the royal family.

Fans couldn’t help but notice the song that accompanied the video was the Stone Roses song “This Is the One” — and the lyrics seem to hint at the Sussexes’ decision to quit their royal duties, splitting their time between the UK and North America. The song includes the lyrics: “I’d like to leave the country for a month of Sundays” as well as “burn the town where I was born.”

People sounded off on social media about the use of the song, with one fan tweeting: “Why on Earth is the #PrinceHarry #instagram film backed by the song with the lyrics ‘I’d like to leave the country for a month of Sundays… Burn the town where I was born.’”

Another person noted: “Prince Harry using a song by The Stone Roses who are so famously anti royal can’t be a coincidence can it?”

Prince Harry’s body language was also under the microscope

In addition to the telling song choice on the video, all eyes were on Prince Harry’s attitude and body language during the event.

Body language expert Judi James pointed out Prince Harry’s joking manner at the event to MailOnline, explaining that he appears to have “lost the signs of protective, watchful anxiety without his wife and baby to worry about in front of the Press.”

She added: “After all the pressures of the last few days Harry’s grin was back at long last in this solo public appearance, along with a splayed chest and signature jaunty walk, although his staccato movements and the pace he set also suggested a man in a hurry to get things done, too.”

Not surprisingly, Prince Harry didn’t answer any questions about #Megxit or his future following the Sussexes’ announcement.

Introducing the Rugby League World Cup 2021 Mental Fitness Charter – a new initiative created by the RFL that will champion the importance of good mental fitness and create sustainable legacy the sport can be proud of. The Duke was announced Patron of the Rugby Football League in December 2016, after it was given to him by Her Majesty The Queen. He is proud to support the Rugby League and the steps made to improve the sport! The initiative announcement comes ahead of today’s live RLWC2021 World cup draw with The Duke of Sussex, alongside representatives of all 21 nations involved, in Buckingham Palace. By “the final whistle of the final game” of @RLWC2021, the charter commits to: • – Train every player, team official, match official, teammate and volunteer to look after their own mental fitness and the mental fitness of those around them. – Support tournament players to take their experiences home and develop mental fitness awareness within their own Rugby League communities. – Deliver mental fitness workshops to 8,000 young Rugby League players, and their parents. – Train grass roots coaches to continue delivering mental fitness workshops and leave a sustainable tournament legacy. This comes at a vital time for both the sport and mental health awareness, with suicide being the most common cause of death for men aged 20-49 here in UK. Given that 93% of the 42,000 Rugby league players and 70% of spectators are male, the mental fitness charter is of huge importance to help educate both players and audiences of the benefits of looking after one’s mental wellness.

Prince Harry is supporting another mental health campaign

Prince Harry used the opportunity to promote the Rugby League’s mental fitness initiative, focusing on the mental health of those involved in the sport.

In a video posted on Instagram, Prince Harry shared: “Rugby League isn’t just a sport, it’s a community. And one that takes care of its own. For many years, it has been at the forefront of promoting and supporting good mental fitness, working hard to build a positive mindset for everyone involved in the sport.”

He continued, explaining: “So, I am proud to support the Rugby League World Cup 2021 Mental Fitness Charter. This Charter will build on the brilliant work already happening in rugby league by committing to training and educating all those involved in the tournament, and the wider rugby league family, not only in how they can look after their own mental fitness but also support others to do the same.”
