PRINCE Harry was ‘itching’ for the rapturous reception he received at the Vax Live concert, a royal author has claimed.
Omid Scobie, the author of Meghan and Harry’s official biography Finding Freedom, spoke about the even on his podcast Heir Pod where he was joined by ABC News producer Zoe Magee.
In this week’s podcast, Scobie spoke about the Duke of Sussex’s appearance at the Vax Live covid concert in LA.
The Duke was clapped and cheered as he walked on stage, with audience members leaping to their feet for his first appearance since Prince Philip's funeral.
And Scobie claims that the royal would have been delighted by the attention.
Speaking in the podcast, Scobie says: “This was really his first big on stage or sort of public moment since moving to the US.
“The rapturous applause, that standing ovation would have been the welcome he would have been itching to receive in the past year in the US.”
Agreeing, Magee continues: “He did have the rockstar vibe as he walked on stage and there’s quite a few photographs of him punching the air and pumping people up
“Obviously he was talking about all the amazing work that all the health care professionals had done so no wonder he got a standing ovation because what he was saying was very very true.”
Harry was among a bevy of big names taking part in the taping of the show at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, due to air on May 8.
Thrilled viewers went online to express their joy at his segment, one wrote: "This is how America treats human beings unlike England treats Meghan. Harry belongs to us now."
And another said: "This reaction for Prince Harry in California at #VaxLive is really something. Somehow doubt that anyone other than the Queen or his late mother would get similar."
Harry was pictured speaking on stage on Sunday night, dressed in a button-down blue shirt and dark pants.
It was the first time he's been seen since April 17, when he joined 29 mourners at England's Windsor Castle to pay tribute to his grandfather.
