Prince Harry joked that ‘he couldn’t hide’ Meghan Markle anywhere these days

Westminster Abbey Field of Remembrance

Here are some photos of Prince Harry on Thursday, where he laid a Cross of Remembrance by the Graves of Unknown British Soldiers from WWI and WWII in London. Saturday is Remembrance Day in Britain (and Veterans Day in America) and the British royal family will be undertaking several public commemorations for veterans and those who served their country in uniform. Prince Harry has carved out a nice place for himself with veterans issues and military issues, having served two tours of duty in Afghanistan and more. He’s so good at this kind of stuff that he actually remembers all of the people he meets throughout his appearances. People feel a connection to him, and they know they don’t have to be all stiff and formal around him. Which is how one dude got a scoop about Meghan Markle:

Prince Harry had a ready answer when a bold fan asked him about his girlfriend Meghan Markle on Thursday. Attending a ceremony to honor Britain’s fallen soldiers at Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance, Harry shared a lighthearted moment on an otherwise solemn occasion.

Matt Weston, 28, who lost both his legs while he was serving in Afghanistan in 2009, seized his moment with the royal to ask the question on everyone’s minds.

“I took the mickey and asked where his missus was and he said she wasn’t here,” Weston told reporters. “I asked if she would come next time because she’s awesome, and he said he couldn’t hide her anywhere — but I said you wouldn’t have to hide her. I would love to meet her — I think she’s very cool. He’s a very lucky man and she’s brilliant.”

Weston, who was injured when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded while he was serving with the Royal Engineers 33 Regiment, said of Harry, “It was great seeing him again, I met him before at the Afghanistan and Iraq memorial unveiling.”

Harry also stopped to talk to 7-year-old Harrison Degiorgio-Lewis. The little boy was wearing the medals and beret that had belonged to an uncle who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008.

“He has been coming here for four years now to represent his uncle,” said Helen Lewis, Harrison’s grandmother. “Harry recognised him — they have a bond, as they share a birthday. Harry asked him about his uncle Aaron, and he said how proud he was.”

“…He said he couldn’t hide her anywhere…” Meaning what, exactly? I’d like to know how he said that, like was Harry bragging a little bit because Meghan is so pretty and bubbly and wherever she is, people watch her? Or was he saying it like a complaint, like he and Meg can’t be private and hidden away anymore? So many questions.

As for Meg, the BBC had a piece this week called “Meghan Markle and her life among Toronto ‘royalty’.” It’s all about how Meghan lives a low-key but well-connected life in Toronto, her friendships with various Canadian power players, and her middle-class roots are actually spoken of as a bonus, because she’s not “skittish” like so many bluebloods.

  1. i don't know her says:

    he’s hot in uniform. thats all i really got from this post.
    and actually, thats enough.

    • Mannori says:

      all I have is this instead: that those things hanging from his uniform look like black socks hanging out to dry,
      And that a royal saying that he “can’t hide anymore” his peasant significant other rubs me the wrong way big time. Whether if it was a joke, a complaint or simply bragging about her, is just a big NO thing to say. It accentuates the obvious discrepancy of who in this relationship has the upper hand.

      • Abs says:

        He didn’t say anything like it. He was asked if she was there and he looked around and said “no, where would I hide her” as in “you obviously see she isn’t here”.

  2. Abs says:

    There’s a video by some australian breakfast show that showed the exact exchange. Matt asked him if his significant other was here, Harry answered looking around “No, where would I hide her?” as in “Well obviously she isn’t here, you’d see her”. The quotes were falsely reported. It was quite nice.

    • Plantpal says:

      makes so much better sense!

    • Princessk says:

      Thanks Abs… is terrible how things get twisted. So was all that stuff about bringing her next year made up?

      • rinserepeat says:

        You can’t hear everything said on the video. But the soldier asks Harry if his Significant other is there, He looks behind him and says “No…where would I hide her” he turns back to the guy but you can’t hear what else is said. I think the guy was paraphrasing the gist of their conversation so unknown. The aussie site that had the video (channel 9) reported that Harry said he’d bring her next year…

      • Princessk says:

        Thanks rinserepeat

    I love these two and I’m so ready for this wedding!!! Come on Harry the world needs something to cheer us up!!! I want big. I want tiaras. Jewelry. A luxurious glorious dress. I want the Obamas there. Maybe a dance with Michelle and Harry? The Queen and Harry? Barack and Meghan? Definitely carriages and horses. It will make 45 green with envy. Can you imagine the tweetstorm???😂

    • Handwoven says:

      Why would he care?

      • Mermaid says:

        45 can’t handle when press isn’t about him, and it’s pretty obvious the Royals aren’t fans. His state visit was cancelled. Prince Harry and the Obamas seem to be great friends.

      • Merritt says:

        If Barack and Michelle were invited to a royal wedding and the Trumps were not, I could easily see Trump having a fit about it.

      • Princessk says:

        Well maybe just Melania should come.

      • notasugarhere says:

        As W&K didn’t invite POTUS or FLOTUS to their wedding, Harry wouldn’t be required to invite the current residents of those positions.

      • Lorelai says:

        Oh Drumpf would *totally* care, especially if the Obamas were invited. And no, he’s not obligated to invite the Obamas, but he likes them both personally so I wouldn’t be surprised if he wanted them there as friends.

        He was supposed to visit the U.K. months ago but they really didn’t want him to come. I’m sure he thought it was a given that he would be welcomed to Buckingham Palace, etc., by the Queen once he was (🤢) POTUS,, but one there wants anything to do with him. Especially after his heinous tweets following the most recent incident of terrorism there in which he attacked the Mayor of London.

    • Princessk says:

      Unless he decides to just invite FLOTUS in reciprocation for her Invictus support.

    • Royalsparkle says:


      M Sparkler would be so much more in sync with the rest of the regal RF ladies at Festival of Remembrance. HM PR DOC Princess Alexandra all look so regal and dignifies. Useless b8ttons waitie look scare to be with the rest of the RF without Willnot.

      Some shots had her looking ‘ snotty/dont care’ next to Duke of York. And unfriendly. Its is good lazy useless waste – didnt represent POW The Wales Line as POW DoC return in time for the Festival.

    That part about the nephew (and Harry recognizing him) made me tear up.

  5. meh says:

    The linked BBC article about how “connected” she is made me laugh. Ben Mulroney is Canada’s Ryan Seacrest? Does anybody even know anything about Canada?

    • raincoaster says:

      FWIW that bit’s true. Like, Ryan Seacrest isn’t an A lister, and neither is Mulroney. They’re both people who got famous for fawning over the more famous.

      But it all reminds me of something Oscar Wilde (who visited Toronto) once said. “There is nothing so provincial as a provincial celebrity.”

    • Princessk says:

      Yeah, I was thinking now who on earth is Ryan Seacrest??

  6. Snazzy says:

    I do love him with that beard. Honking for Harry!!

  7. Mazzie says:

    Oh god. No one cares about the Toronto ‘royalty.’ Unless they’re tax avoiders then nail them all.

  8. Donna says:

    That BBC article was a hoot. As much over the top fawning as that “toast of Toronto” crapola about Megsy from a few months ago.

  9. Princessk says:

    Princess Diana would be very very proud of Harry at that ceremony, like any mother would. When Diana died many of us mothers decided to both silently and vocally watch the backs of her boys.

  10. Amelia says:

    Sounds like typical lad’s banter to me. Also I am being picky but my husband just explained this to me this week…. @Kaiser Saturday is actually Armistice Day and Sunday is Rememberence Sunday (Veteran’s day equivalent) in the UK. Sorry, I’m done being a perfectionist now. Love Prince Harry and Meghan!

  11. Vinot says:

    I am infinitely impressed by Harry’s continued work with veterans and their families, and I think it cannot be mentioned and discussed enough. THAT BEING SAID, I am so sick of Meghan’s purported narrative being that she’s middle class. Her dad is an Emmy-award winning light designer and worked on Married With Children for years. That is not royalty by any means but it sure as hell is not middle class.
