Prince Harry invited to Kerrang! Awards
Britain’s Prince Harry has been invited to the Kerrang! Awards.
The 31-year-old royal was asked by Sue Reinhardt, who works for independent record label Eleven Seven Music, to be her guest at the upcoming ceremony, which honours the best in rock music and takes place at London’s Troxy
on June 9.
Sue said: “I was thinking about celebrities who like rock music and Prince Harry sprung to mind.”
Sadly for Sue, the fun-loving prince has “reluctantly” turned down her invitation as he is too busy with his charity commitments.
She received a response from Harry’s private secretary, Edward Lee Fox, which said: “The Prince was extremely grateful for your kind invitation.
“Having given careful consideration to the possibilities however, I very much regret that His Royal Highness reluctantly feels he has to decline.
“Prince Harry is focussing on his commitments in support of the charities with which he is already associated and feels unable to take on anything further at this time.
“I am sorry to have to send you this necessarily disappointing response but do hope you understand.
“His Royal Highness would have me send you his best wishes and thanks for thinking of him on this occasion.”
However, Sue wasn’t too upset as she hadn’t even expected to receive a reply.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: “Admittedly I wrote the letter as a bit of a joke and was surprised when I got a reply.
“Perhaps I’ll ask him again next year and see if he can make it!”
