Last week on November 13 the Duke of Sussex undertook voluntary work alongside The Mission Continues’ Service Platoon, which helps veterans engage with their local communities. However, his participation wasn’t announced at the time and only became public knowledge after details of the event appeared on Instagram.
The event was organised by the Walker Family Events Foundation (WFEF) which worked with the Compton Veterans on what they called ‘Operation Nourish’.
Operation Nourish sees veterans provide food to the vulnerable in order to both help feed people and boost mental health.
Several photos of Harry, wearing a mask to protect from COVID-19, at the event were posted on the WFEF Instagram account.
In one picture the Prince is seen alongside bags of food that have been prepared for distribution, whilst in another he is in front of empty cardboard packaging.

The WFEF photo was accompanied with a caption stating: “Today I had the honor of meeting and working alongside Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
“He joined us in volunteering at Compton VFW for the weekly Operation Nourish programme packing and distributing food to our Compton neighbours.
“He is very humble and kind. Operation Nourish is in partnership with Compton Veterans.”
Video from the event was also posted on the Compton Veterans Instagram account.
