Prince Harry is spearheading a new WeThe15 disability initiative for his Invictus Games charity, which helps wounded servicemen. In a newly-released video, the Prince spoke about a “day where no-one is held back from achievement”. The Invictus Games Foundation tweeted: “Our Patron joins leaders of organisations across the world as part of #WeThe15, celebrating the launch of the campaign as the Paralympics closes. This is just the beginning.”
European Commission President Ms von der Leyen also commented on the campaign, and said: “A movement to make the world fairer, more just and more equitable.”
But Harry has come under furious attack from Express.co.uk readers for teaming up with the EU leader on the project.
Reacting to our initial story, one person wrote: “Dream team? More of a nightmare!”
A second reader raged: “Time he stopped interfering in this country. The country he turned his back on.”
Another person said: “I think it fair to say that alienating British royalists was one thing, but embracing VDL is sealing his fate.”
Additionally, a fourth reader commented: “Whatever happened to this privacy thing?”
The launch of this initiative comes after Prince Harry blamed “masses of misinformation” for Covid vaccine hesitancy.
The Duke of Sussex made a rare public appearance at the GQ Men of the Year awards last week, where he presented a prize to Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert, Professor Catherine Green and the team behind the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
