Harry dodges question about missing Charles and William: My focus is on my own family

Prince Harry seemed to dodge the question when asked whether he misses his brother Prince William and his father Prince Charles during his latest TV interview.

The Duke of Sussex, 37, is currently in the Netherlands where he spoke with NBC about his work during the Invictus Games, a sporting event in support of sick and injured service people and veterans.

Speaking to host Hoda Kotb, the prince happily opened up about his “special relationship” with his grandmother the Queen, who he paid a visit to while in the UK last week.

However, when asked further questions about his family, he stopped short of going into detail about his relationship with his dad and brother.

When asked if he missed his family at home, he said “yes” and added “especially over the last two years, for most people, have we not missed their families? Right?”

He then dodged the question when asked about his strained relationship with William and Charles, who he has barely seen since moving with wife Meghan Markle to the US in 2020, saying he was focusing more on his role of host at the Invictus Games.

He said: “Look, I mean… at the moment, I’m here focused on these guys and these families and giving everything I can, 120% to them to make sure that they have the experience of a lifetime.

“That’s my focus here. And when I leave here, I go back, and my focus is my family, who I miss massively.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Prince Harry revealed that he feels Santa Barbara is “home now” after exiting the UK to move to California in 2020.


In a preview clip of his discussion with anchor Hoda released on Wednesday, the Royal mentioned how he felt he had been welcomed warmly in the US and shared his happiness living there compared to the UK.

“Home for me now, for the time being, is in the States and it feels that way as well. We've been welcomed with open arms and we have such a great community up in Santa Barbara,” Harry said.

He also confirmed in the interviewhis meeting with the Queenbefore the Invictus Games last Thursday and referenced the 95 year old monarch’s “great sense of humour” during the encounter.

“Being with her, it was great. It was just so nice to see her, she's on great form,' Harry said.

“She's always got a great sense of humour with me”.


The Prince went on to say that he wanted to make sure his grandmother was “protected” as he took the opportunity to reunite with her during his first European visit with Meghan since they stepped down as senior members of Royal family and moved away.

“I'm just making sure she's protected and got the right people around her. Both Meghan and I had tea with her, so it was really nice to catch up with her,” Harry added.
