The former rugby player and father-of-three currently counts three medals: His OBE, which he was given for his Services to Rugby after England’s 2003 World Cup Win, and the medals he received for the Monarch’s Diamond & Platinum Jubilees.
Prince Harry, who has been living in California with his family since 2020, but flew to the UK for his grandmother’s Jubilee in June, was also awarded the medal and was wearing it, alongside his other medals yesterday.
