During the “Declassified” podcast, Prince Harry praised the way people across the UK have joined together amid COVID-19. Speaking about how veterans were stepping up to give aid, the prince said he felt “incredibly proud.”

Harry said: “I’m honoured to be a veteran, and honoured to be part of that community.” He added: “I think what has happened especially in the U.K. is the very best of the human spirit.”

He and his wife, Duchess Meghan, were seen delivering food parcels to the needy in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. The pair, who moved to the US last month, surprised a man when he responded to a knock at his apartment.

Dan Tyrell was expecting to receive meals from Project Angel Food and was shocked when he opened his door to royalty. The man said he thought at the time that the "tall red-headed guy looked pretty familiar, and that girl was very pretty.”

Making monetary donations

Tyrell also joked: "If they had given me the heads up, I would have worn my tiara!" Besides delivering food to the needy, Harry and Meghan have also made monetary donations.

Donating thousands to charity
