Prince Harry surprised the public back home in the United Kingdom as he made a surprise TV appearance.
Harry’s friend JJ Chalmers is a contestant on the popular show Strictly Come Dancing, and the Prince decided to send him a surprise message.
JJ was seriously injured while serving in Afghanistan and the pair quickly bonded over their shared experience of serving for the Armed Forces.
Harry helped JJ with his recovery, and they went on to become close friends.
“When I first met JJ he was a shell of himself but then to see you shine through Invictus and to be yourself again, that was the start of an amazing journey.
“You’re definitely having an impact on society now especially when you’re wearing those tight blue shorts and the socks pulled up.
“It doesn’t get better than that!”
“I’m genuinely proud. You’re not a dancer, proving that you can actually do whatever you put your mind to which is amazing.”
