Prince Harry 'Shocked To The Core' By Armed Forces Veterans Stories

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been “shocked to their core” by stories they have heard from armed forces veterans struggling with mental health.

The 33-year-old royal recently admitted to this while speaking at the annual Veterans’ Mental Health Conference on Thursday (March 15) at King’s College in London, England.

The event brings together leading academics, researchers, medical professionals and charities to discuss the key issues in military mental health.

Harry said many ex-forces personnel “continue to suffer in silence” and “their families also suffer,” but that he will also “continually inspired by amazingly positive outcomes”.

Harry and his fiancee Megan recently visited Colchester Garrison to learn about the work of the North Essex Veterans Mental Health Network, a collaboration between the NHS, charities and the MOD. It was one of a number of private visits Meghan is making to charities in the run up to the couple’s wedding on 19 May.

“Some of the stories Meghan and I heard when we visited Colchester Garrison a few weeks ago shocked us to our core,” Harry told the crowd.
