Prince Harry says ‘war stays with you’ as he visits military base with Meghan

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stepped out for the second time this week as they visited a military base on Thursday, 11 November.

Prince Harry, 37, and his 40 year old wife Meghan Markle, who recently gushed over her husband on the red carpet, went to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey to speak to service members and their partners to reflect on the day of commemoration in the UK and Veterans Day in the US.

The royal couple were all smiles as they posed for pictures, where Harry, who served in the military himself for ten years, which included two tours of Afghanistan, looked dapper in a grey suit with a crips white shirt while Meghan donned a a black Giorgio Armani faux-wrap dress.

She accessorised with Giorgio Armani heels, a Cartier watch and bracelet and another bracelet by Jennifer Meyer. The pair also wore red poppies for the occasion.

Speaking to the veterans, Harry shared: "My experience in the military made me who I am today, and I will always be grateful for the people I got to serve with – wherever in the world we were."

Opening up on mental health, he continued: "But in war, you also see and experience things you hope no one else has to.

"These stay with us, sometimes like a slideshow of images."

A day earlier, Harry joked about "living the American dream" while attending the Intrepid Valor Awards to honour veterans in New York ahead of Remembrance Day.

The royal, who recently slammed "rabid" and "damaging" media in a bitter speech, discussed his time on hotdog-shaped car "Oscar Mayer Wienermobile" while addressing the audience at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

"It’s wonderful to be back on USS Intrepid a decade after my last visit – and a lot has changed since then," the royal said, before joking: "Just last week, I went for a ride on the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile – how’s that for living the American dream."

The museum pays tribute to those in the military who have honoured their roles in defending their country.

Prince Harry continued: "I’ve lived in the US for close to two years now.

"I have to say, witnessing your support for all those that put themselves in harm’s way in defence of our freedoms and liberties – it’s remarkable and hugely respected.

"It reminds me of the deep reverence us Brits have for our military as well."

Harry added: "The armed forces communities in both our countries share a special bond, and I’m grateful to have served in support of our joint allyship for many years."
