Prince Harry spoke to Hoda Kotb in a tell-all chat at the Invictus Games and the TV host said the prince claimed everyone was asking him about his wife Meghan Markle during his time at the Games
During their time at the Invictus Games, fans could not get enough of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
They appeared at several events together during the competition in The Hague – but it seems one of them was more in demand than the other.
Hoda Kotb, who interviewed Harry for American TV while at the Games, gave a very telling insight into the reception the couple got in the Netherlands.
Speaking on NBC’s Today show, Hoda explained that people appeared to be more eager to see Meghan than Harry.
Hoda explained: “His wife was with him, but it’s funny, he said that every time the athletes saw him, they were like ‘where’s Meghan, where’s Meghan?’
“And he was like ‘who am I?”
And these comments almost echoed a complaint his dad Prince Charles had with Harry’s late mother Princess Diana when they were out on engagements together.
It is said that Charles would grow tired of people always asking about his wife when he was out and about or them looking disappointed if he greeted them instead of her.

In her infamous 1995 interview on BBC Panorama, Diana explained: “. “We’d be going round Australia, for instance, and all you could hear was, ‘Oh, she’s on the other side.'”
“They weren’t on the right side to wave at me or to touch me.”
“Now, if you’re a man like my husband, a proud man, you mind about that if you hear it every day for four weeks. And you feel low about it, instead of feeling happy and sharing it.”
However, there is no suggestion that Harry is unhappy with his wife’s popularity like his dad reportedly was.
In Harry’s interview with Hoda, he opened up about the state of his relationship with his family and his recent meeting with the Queen.
The Duke also gave a cute update on his son Archie and listed his favorite things about being a dad during the chat with America’s Today show.
However, I have avoided answering a question about missing Charles and brother Prince William, instead turning the conversation back to the Invictus Games.
It’s the latest in a long line of chats Harry has since quitting the royal family in 2020, with the Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers saying palace staff will have their “heads in their hands” as he shares yet more details of private family affairs.
