哈利王子婉拒婚宴賀禮,以慈善捐款方式永遠記住母親黛安娜王妃

英國哈利王子(Prince Harry)和美國女演員梅根馬克爾(Meghan Markle)將在 5/19 於倫敦溫莎城堡(WindsorCastle)舉辦婚禮,小倆口承襲哥哥和嫂嫂的精神,也就是威廉王子和凱特王妃,他們在 2011 年大婚時,也呼籲賓客捐款,兩人將約新台幣 4,100 萬元善款善款捐至 26 家位於加拿大、澳洲、紐西蘭及英國的慈善機構。(延伸閱讀:派對辦在餐廳太老套,請登上遊艇和攝影棚吧!

自從去年底兩人訂婚,外界紛紛表達祝賀,兩人希望將這些祝福化成大愛,婉拒賓客的結婚賀禮,希望賓客考慮捐贈慈善團體,哈利王子和梅克爾就本身關心的議題選出 7 家慈善團體,包括推動社會改變、女權、自然保育、環境、遊民、愛滋、傷殘軍人。(延伸閱讀:她賣掉婚戒重新創業:「當一切都沒有時,是人生最富足的時候」)

Today Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle visited the @uniofbath to watch the UK team trials for @invictusgames2018. The couple spoke to some of the veterans hoping for a place in this year’s Games, including Mark Ormrod, a former Royal Marine who lost three limbs in Afghanistan. Mark was presented the ‘Exceptional Performance Award’ after winning a total of four medals at @invictustoronto; two silver medals in indoor rowing and two bronze medals in swimming. Also hoping to make the team is Lamin Manneh, seen here during the shot put trials today, who served in the Irish Guards for five years until being seriously injured in Afghanistan in 2010. If successful, Lamin will represent the UK for a 3rd time this year, having previously taken part in the 2016 and 2017 Invictus Games.

黛安娜王妃逝世時,哈利王子年僅 12 歲,皇室悲劇對他造成巨大的影響和創傷,加上皇室身分,讓他接近崩潰邊緣,也曾尋求心理諮商;他在 30 歲時從服役 10 年的軍伍退役,期間曾至阿富汗展開短暫的軍旅生涯,他曾說,阿富汗軍旅改變了他的人生觀。他和威廉王子夫妻一同呼籲眾人重視孩子喪親的心理健康,並且協助殘障退伍軍人和非洲愛滋兒童,也讓他接受母親離世的事實。

哈利王子在籌備婚禮時,像是一場個人的心靈治療,他希望延續母親黛安娜王妃生前致力的慈善工作,藉此方法永遠記住母親。
