Prince William and Prince Harry, together with their respective wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, are now well-known for their charity patronages and fundraising for many diverse causes. The royal bothers both had military careers before they stepped up their duties as senior royals, and supporting the armed forces continues to be a cause close to their hearts. However, in their younger days they both made secret charity visits, according to royal author Katie Nicholl.
Her 2018 book ‘Harry: Life, Loss and Love’ delves into the princes’ lives behind the scenes.
Ms Nicholl reveals how, in April 2008, William and Harry “made a number of secret visits to Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham to spend time with wounded soldiers and their families.”
Harry also visited Royal Marine Ben McBean at a recovery centre in Surrey.
