A former colleague of Prince Harry has spoken out about the Duke of Sussex's selflessness. Taking to Twitter, Glenn Haughton OBE, a senior British war soldier who developed a strong bond with Harry during their time serving, wrote: "Let me tell you because I know. PH is a soldier, veteran and servant who fought in Afghan in the cloth of our nation, quickly forgotten by our fleeting and fickle society. A selfless, loving father, brother and son that has given so much of his life to better the lives of others."

Glenn wasn't the only acquaintance of the Prince to tweet in his favour on Monday. Jaco van Gass, a veteran and champion Paralympic cyclist, who sustained life-changing injuries while serving in the armed forces, also spoke of Harry's kind nature, specifically his dedication to bettering the lives of those less fortunate. Jaco wrote: "Opinions are the cheapest commodity in life because we all have one and are entitled to one! Let's not forget what Prince Harry has done for thousands of people around the world… He made a huge difference in my life and I will be forever grateful to him."
