  • The Duke of Sussex has praised the “wonderfully British” response to coronavirus, as he speaks from his new home of the “gaping hole” left for military veterans who have hung up their uniform.

    The Duke, who has moved 5,000 miles to Los Angeles after leaving the working Royal Family, has spoken movingly of what his career in British Army meant to him, as he says he is “incredibly proud” to see the “very best of the human spirit” in the UK as it copes with the Covid-19 pandemic.

    In a podcast to promote the key role veterans are playing in the effort to beat the virus, he said: “It’s such a wonderfully British thing that we all come to help when we need it.”

    As he and the Duchess left their royal roles last month, the Duke agreed he would no longer use his official military appointments which are in the gift of the Queen, as he forged a new life of “financial independence” in the United States.

    Speaking on the Declassified podcast about the work of Team Rubicon UK, a rapid disaster response charity which is calling on ex-servicemen and women to help in the UK effort against coronavirus, he said he remained “honoured” to be a veteran. 

    Saying volunteering with them in the past had shown him how to fill “that gaping hole that everyone feels once you have to hang up your uniform”, the Duke said he was “continually impressed” by the “exceptional human beings” in the military community.
