Prince Harry is not like other members of the royal family. As a young man, Harry decided to join the military and achieved quite a lot during his years of service.

The Duke of Sussex served for 10 years, during which he rose to the rank of Captain and undertook two tours of Afghanistan. Although trying, the times Harry spent with the Army were surrounded by good friends and, reportedly, many laughs.

A former officer says he barely recognizes Prince Harry

A former fellow officer that used to serve closely with Prince Harry told the Sunday Express that the royal isn't the same "bag of fun" he used to be while serving in the military.

He recently met Harry and says he "seemed detached and disjointed". The former officer believes that hardships of the married life are weighing on him:

I suspect that as a newly married man he is anxious about the pressures his wife is feeling. I have seen the Prince this year and he seemed very quiet and reserved, not the bubbly, fun chap I once knew.

He also proceeded to reminisce about how fun Harry used to be and said he couldn't see it in him anymore.

During his time in Helmand, Harry was a bag of fun, though always professional. He had a great sense of humour. He excelled in daft jokes about football of rugby.

Social media users respond

Many people online believe the officer, but most agree that people change with age and it's perfectly natural that Prince Harry matured.
