Prince Harry Struggled With This "First" of #DadLife
Parting is such sweet sorrow — especially for new papa Prince Harry, who recently had to leave newborn son Archie and wife Meghan to participate in a charity polo match in Italy. Prince Harry was sad to part from his wife and new son, according to a source for Us Weekly.
“Harry left for Italy and it was very difficult for him to leave Archie and Meghan… He wants to spend every second he can with them,” the insider told the outlet.
The prince headed to Rome on Thursday, May 23, to compete in the 2019 Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup on May 24. The event took place at the Roma Polo Club. Sentebale is a charity that was co-founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Italy in 2006. The annual match seeks to raise proceeds and increase awareness and support of Lesotho and Botswana youth affected by HIV. (It’s a particularly special event for Prince Harry, as in May 2017, it was the scene of Meghan Markle’s very first official appearance as Harry’s paramour, ooh la la la.)
But Meghan was home at Frogmore Cottage with Archie this time (and their new, modern pram, oh my). Funny how two short years have changed the prince’s life. Prince Harry is back home with his wife and son now as well. He was actually spied on Saturday, May 25, traveling very low key (for a prince, that is) in the first-class section of a British Airways flight returning from Rome to London. And he looked a lot more like an exhausted new dad than he did a polo champion: One sharp-eyed passenger took a picture of Harry (possibly risking the wrath of his bodyguard):
“This morning leaving Rome I got up to use the bathroom [on the plane] and I had to wait. As I’m standing there, I look over and see a guy who looks like Prince Harry. And he has a wedding ring on and looks very tired,” the passenger, Amy Garrick, posted on Facebook. “The guy next to him looks like security and is glaring at me. Finally my brain clicks and I realise, it is Prince Harry on the way back to London from Rome… He politely smiled and said ‘hi’ when he realized I knew who he was.”

#NEW: Amy Garrick, a member in a Facebook group about travelling shared her experience after she stumbled upon Prince Harry yesterday during her flight from Rome to London. She wrote: “I haven't had anything worth sharing, but this morning leaving Rome I got up to use the bathroom and I had to wait. As I'm standing there, I look over and see a guy who looks like Prince Harry. And he has a wedding ring on and looks very tired. The guy next to him looks like security and is glaring at me. Finally my brain clicks and I realize, it is Prince Harry on the way back to London from Rome. He was at a polo tournament. He politely smiled and said hi when he realized I knew who he was. I tried to get a photo as he got off the plane. I didn't want to harass him and felt bad taking one, but it isn't every day you see him! He thanked the first class crew and pilot before getting off the plane :)”
We’re glad that the polo king and working dad is back home with Archie and Meghan where he belongs. Meghan’s probably about ready for a trip to Rome, if our own newborn baby days are any indicator of how she might be faring. At the very least, we’re glad Harry’s home so she can take a bath — and a long nap. Especially if she’s planning on traveling to the U.S. with Archie in the near future.
