Men cry too: 5 times Prince Harry couldn't hold back tears in public. Including - because of the war in Ukraine

5 times Prince Harry couldn't hold back tears in public

It is often stereotypically assumed that men don't cry, but no matter how hard Prince Harry tries to keep his emotions in check in public, he doesn't always succeed. In particular, the consequences of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine almost brought the Duke of Sussex to tears.

According to Hello!, his emotional "explosions" often occurred because of events close to the prince's heart or conversations about his own children: 4-year-old Prince Archie and 2-year-old Princess Lilibeth. These were not always tears of sadness and grief, such as at the funeral of Elizabeth II - the Duke mostly cried with happiness and joy.

The wedding

Prince Harry could hardly contain his emotions during his wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018, as the young couple rode in a carriage through the streets of Windsor, UK.

Speech at the WellChild Awards

In 2019, the Duke gave a speech at the WellChild Awards, a charity that helps seriously ill children. Although the prince did not show any vivid emotions on stage, he wrote in his memoir Spare: "We were full of hope and anxiety, like all parents-to-be, and now we had a healthy little boy at home. But these parents and children were not so lucky. Gratitude and compassion came together in my heart, and I was overwhelmed. Unable to speak, I gripped the pulpit tightly and leaned forward."

Invictus Games

At the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion, the prince gave a speech at the Invictus Games in The Hague in April 2022, where he also praised the power of the military. "Your bravery in deciding to come and be here tonight cannot be overstated," he said emotionally.

In particular, in Dusseldorf, Germany, in 2023, during his favorite competition, Prince Harry met with the Ukrainian military. A video was posted online where the Duke of Sussex got down on one knee in front of a fan from Ukraine who lost his legs in the war with the Russian occupiers. The Duke may not have shown his emotions publicly at the time, but he definitely touched Internet users.

The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II

The relationship between the Duke of Sussex and Elizabeth II was quite warm, so the loss of the prince's family member shook him up. A few days after the funeral, the royal said: "Grandmother, although this last parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all our first meetings-from my earliest childhood memories with you to meeting you."

Opening speech of the Invictus Games

The Duke delivered a touching speech that moved him as well. He shared the advice he gave to his son Archie. "I remind him that no matter what you want to be when you grow up, your character matters most. And nothing would make his mom and I as proud as his character, which we see in front of us today," he said.
