Billions of people across the globe cannot live without it and it seems that for a while Prince Harry too was a Facebook fan. While being a member of The Royal Family meant Prince Harry was surrounded by tight security and had a different upbringing to the rest of us, it seems the soon to be married Prince made up for it in later life and got involved in the social media phenomenon – albeit under a different name.
It is reported that Prince Harry held a Facebook account for four years meaning he shared statuses and photos just like the rest of us – just under an alias.
It is believed that Prince Harry set up the account under the name Spike Wells and even shared photos of himself with his now ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy. It is also believed that Prince Harry had 400 Facebook friends – a healthy number for a Prince in disguise!
Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle on May 19th at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle after Clarence House announced their engagement back in November 2017. It was recently revealed that the couple will take to the streets of Windsor directly after their wedding for a carriage ride – allowing every gathered wellwisher to catch a glimpse of the newly married couple.
Those hoping to have a quick search for Prince Harry’s Facebook page will be left disappointed – the Prince was forced to close the account back in 2012 and reports say it was to avoid any more bad press after becoming embroiled in a number of scandals around that time.
It was recently revealed that Prince Harry is set to take on a major new role within the Commonwealth. As Youth Champion Prince Harry will work on a number of youth-led issues and, along with Meghan Markle, will be a prominent figure at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting being held in London in April.
With his previous experience of youth issues across the globe and his four years Facebook experience, it seems Prince Harry will make the perfect Youth Champion.
