Prince Harry Reportedly Uses Song with Cryptic Lyric about His Royal Exit in Instagram Story
Prince Harry is reportedly sending messages about his exit as he used a song with a cryptic lyric in a new Instagram Story post.
Since Prince Harry and Meghan dropped the shocking news of their exit, tensions have been high both in and out of the royal family.
Nevertheless, the couple is focused on carrying on their philanthropic duties to the best of their abilities.
This was the case yesterday when Prince Harry stepped out to host the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draw. As expected, behind-the-scenes moments of the event were shared with fans on Sussex Royal Instagram story.

Here we come Düsseldorf 🇩🇪! The new home for the 2022 and sixth Invictus Games. Having previously been held in London, Orlando, Toronto, Sydney, and upcoming The Hague this year in May - Düsseldorf will welcome over 500 competitors as they showcase their talents, determination and camaraderie to the world! The #InvictusGames is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by The Duke of Sussex, in which wounded, injured or sick (WIS) armed services personnel and veterans show the world what they’re capable of in a series of adaptive sports, ranging from wheelchair basketball to indoor rowing. The Duke, having spent 10 years serving in the Armed Forces, set up the @WeAreInvictusGames to celebrate the power of sport rehabilitation (both physically and mentally) and to generate a wider appreciation for those who served their country beyond their time in uniform. Participating in the Games plays a significant part in the recovery journey of WIS Servicemen and women. It doesn’t just heal the individual, it heals the whole family. • “I hope everyone in Germany is ready for what will be an incredible week of sport! I have no doubt that the German public will get right behind these Games and that every single competitor can expect a warm welcome and an amazing atmosphere.” – The Duke of Sussex For more information of the announcement, visit https://invictusgamesfoundation.org/ig2022-announcement/ Video © @WeAreInvictusGames
However, it was the background song of the video montage that caught the attention of fans.
According to reports by PEOPLE, “This is The One” by Stone Roses was the song playing, and its lyric is believed to have a hidden message about Harry and Meghan’s exit.
As noted by the publication, a part of the hit song’s lyrics read:
“I’d like to leave the country for a month of Sundays, burn the town where I was born.”
Given that in the Sussexes’ statement, Harry and Meghan disclosed that they would shuffle their stay between the United Kingdom and North America, the lyrics could be interpreted as a nod to their recent decision.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
According to another PEOPLE article, Prince Harry’s appearance at the Rugby League World Cup was his first engagement since he and Meghan announced their decision to step back and become financially independent.
During the event, the Duke of Sussex was abruptly asked by a reporter about discussions for his future.
However, according to sources at the palace, the Queen’s grandson provided the press with no answers and merely laughed at the journalist’s attempt to get his opinion.
Luckily, former Rugby player Jason Robinson was able to speak in favor of the royal while discussing with reporters.
“What happens between him [Prince Harry] and his good wife is nothing at all to do with me. What’s great about this is that it does not matter what is going on in the background; wherever he goes, he still delivers.”

Spotlight on: Endeavour Fund Today we are taking a look back at the amazing work done by the @EndeavourFund, an organisation created by The Duke of Sussex to support the Armed Forces community. HRH was motivated by the ambitions of wounded, injured and sick (WIS) service personnel and veterans across the UK, who wanted to use sport and adventurous activity as part of their recovery. And what they choose to take on is extraordinary! These men and women break global records and set goals for those around the world - non-disabled and disabled alike, including: The first amputee to cross Greenland icecap unsupported, the first triple amputee to qualify as a rescue diver, the fastest unsupported rowing time across the Atlantic, and so many more. The endeavours they take on are inspirational, but also have a tremendous impact on their physical, emotional and social recovery, as well as a lasting effect on the family and community around them. Since launching in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported nearly 6,000 WIS in sport and adventure challenges. As The Duke said, “The magic of the Endeavour Fund is that it enables those who had life changing injuries in their prime, many of whom felt defeated, to use the power of sport to find a new purpose. The renewed self-belief we see in everyone who participates, and how this transforms their lives and the lives of those around them is overwhelming. Beyond that, each man or woman who participates uses their endeavour as an opportunity to raise funds for another serviceman or woman who needs the same support they once did. It’s a powerful and meaningful process that I am so proud to be a part of.” • In 2019 alone, 17 grants were submitted benefitting nearly a thousand WIS and over 200 family and friends. 198 qualifications were gained and more than 80 are back in the workforce feeling fulfilled and with a renewed sense of purpose.

Harry’s appearance comes after PEOPLE reported that a source close to the royal family revealed that William and Harry were set to work side-by-side in the future of the monarchy.
While speaking to the publication, royal author Penny Junor said:
“He [Prince Harry] would pick up the bits that William wouldn’t be as good for. They would be complimentary and side-by-side throughout their lives.”
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case as a feud was rumored to be between the brothers over the years. Multiple sources reveal that it all began during the early days of Prince Harry and Meghan’s relationship hen William cautioned his younger brother to take things slowly.
Harry didn’t take his brother’s advice lightly, and since then, things haven’t been the same.
