Over the last couple of years, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have been living large in the United States. They have made several celebrity appearances at talk shows and other events, and they have also attended various sporting spectacles across the country.
However, there are rumors doing the rounds on social media that the high-profile couple might not be in attendance for the Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, arguably the biggest game of the year. Let’s go behind the scenes and find out more about their absence.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle to skip Super Bowl LVIII?
Several sources have reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will indeed miss the Super Bowl contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Apparently, the couple is planning to snub the Super Bowl for a trip to see the northern lights in Canada.
Earlier this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell publicly claimed that an invitation for the game had been sent to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after the two had started showing genuine interest in American football. In fact, Prince Harry also watched the 2022 Super Bowl game along with his cousin, Princess Eugenie.
However, according to an official statement issued to the outlet, the couple will not be in attendance at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday. The statement read, “Despite the convenience of staying in town for the big game this week, neither Harry nor Meghan Markle will be attending Super Bowl LVIII. Instead, they are occupied with preparations for their trip to Canada for the opening event of the Invictus Games next week.”
Prince Harry takes sudden trip to see ill King Charles
The month of February hasn’t been one to write home about for the Royal Family of England. King Charles was recently diagnosed with cancer, which prompted all of his immediate family to pay him a visit, including Prince Harry.
Despite dealing with his father’s sudden illness, Prince Harry didn’t let the situation overwhelm him and delivered a speech at his recent NFL appearance, instilling faith in the minds of the players involved. According to Hindustan Times, the speech read, “You are role models for millions in the way you carry yourselves and the way you give back. This final award, the highest honor, is all about serving your community. And there’s one special man we’d like to pay tribute to now. A player who goes above and beyond and whose extraordinary commitment to helping others is a reflection of his own story.”
