Prince Harry Asked a Crowd to Just Call Him "Harry"
While it has only been a month since Prince Harry bid farewell to royal life and moved to Canada to be with his wife, Meghan Markle, and son, Archie Harrison, the duke has quickly adapted to his new, civilian existence. Take, for instance, last week, when he was spotted smiling while performing a "normal person" errand: buying sandwiches at a grocery store.
With his newfound freedom, and subsequent exit from the royal family, Harry's style has also gone through a transition. Before he was more of a suit and tie guy, and, now, he's embraced the casual, college-like uniform of a tech bro from Silicon Valley — all he's missing is the fleece vest.
And it appears as if he brought the California cool look with him to the U.K. for his final round of royal engagements. On Tuesday evening, Harry was photographed arriving at Waverly Station in Edinburg, Scotland wearing jeans, a baseball cap, and his now-signature black Patagonia jacket. Before hopping into a silver Range Rover, Harry surprised on-lookers by carrying his own garment bag like a real non-royal.
At the event, he asked the host to just call him "Harry," and she in turn instructed the crowd to do the same.
Harry has a busy few days ahead of him in his homeland. First up, he's speaking at a summit for Travalyst, an environmental tourism initiative he helped launch, and, then, a recording session of sorts with Jon Bon Jovi. Meanwhile, Meghan has some "private" business of her own to attend to in London while Harry is away.
Come the end of next month, both Meghan and Harry will officially step back as senior royals and resume their laid-back, family life in North America.
