Both Prince Harry and Prince William picked up their royal duties today, although they each participated in very different events. First, Prince William took part in his first Royal Investiture service at Buckingham Palace, where he handed out an Order of the British Empire (OBE) to Andy Murray and knighted a schoolteacher. Meanwhile, Harry showed off his athletic prowess when he took part in a coaching session with the Rugby Football Union All Schools Programme at Twickenham Stadium.
Harry played rugby with two teams, one for boys and one for girls, and also tossed around the ball with rugby player Jason Robinson. The younger prince is a patron of the Rugby Football Union's program for children. Harry also traveled to Imperial College in London to open the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies after his rugby match. He donned a "HRH" lab coat and chatted with staff members before unveiling a plaque. This week is proving to be a busy one for the younger members of the royal family as Kate Middleton will make her first solo appearance Friday since giving birth to Prince George.
Both Prince William and Prince Harry have been stepping more into the public eye this year, with William leaving his job with the Royal Air Force to focus on his royal duties and Harry getting attention for his relationship with dancer and socialite Cressida Bonas. If the reports are true, Harry is planning on proposing to Cressida sometime within the next year. While Cressida may become the next princess, she isn't like the Duchess of Cambridge — check out why we think that Cressida Bonas will be the hipster princess.
