His heartfelt support for the military, for veterans and for those coping with injuries from battle is well known around the world and now Prince Harry has issued an official statement underlining how important this cause is to him. Following the publication of a story in The Sun newspaper, carried by other titles as well, claiming Harry had been speaking out, Kensington Palace issued a statement making clear the prince's position.
Kensington Palace said that, although the story was positive for Harry, he wanted to make it clear he had never expressed any such opinion as he knows that to comment in the circumstance would 'undermine his ability to support veterans both in the UK and overseas'.
