Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is currently in the Netherlands at the Invictus Games. The athletics event is for former service personnel injured in the line of duty. The Prince, a former soldier with the British Army, founded the event eight years ago.
Harry was accompanied to the event by his wife, Meghan. The two stopped off in the UK last Thursday to meet with the Queen, before continuing on to the Netherlands.
Harry has been meeting with many of those taking part in the games, including hanging out with representatives from Australia. They gifted him a pair of “budgie smugglers” – the nickname for Speedo-type, snug swimming briefs popular down under.

The Aussie team posted images to Twitter of the Prince receiving the briefs, saying, “Now that the Duke of Sussex is living in California, Team Australia thought it appropriate to continue the tradition of gifting stunning new budgie smugglers to the Duke.”

The “tradition” comment refers to the fact this isn’t the first time Australia has gifted “budgie smugglers” to the Prince. Here he is below with a pair he received at the Invictus Games in Sydney in 2018.

Matt Model, the Team Australia member who gave Harry the swimming briefs in 2018 and 2022, says this year’s gift was a little on the larger side, to reflect Harry has had a couple of kids: “It’s four years on now. We thought we better get him an updated pair. We thought we’d allow him four years of, you know, being a dad and all that sort of stuff, and up the size.”
Sadly, there are no pictures yet of Harry modeling his new swimwear.
Prince Harry sure do get my juices flowing!
Harry and his wife are grifters taking advantage of Harry’s accident of birth – as he won the birth lottery. Of course, that’s nothing he’s earned, as everyone knows that the British royals are as dumb as dirt.
If Harry hadn’t been born into the British royal family, he’d be a barkeeper in some tiny pub in the English countryside.
BennyTheHill, jealous much? He’s a prince, you’re a ???????
Benny the Hill —
You are a whiny, jealous, fool
BennyTheHill You are no better than the shite I scrape off the bottom of my shoes when I have stepped in a load of poo. Did YOU leave this pile of shite while you were on the street? SO SORRY your package does not show in any budgie huggers.
I really get under your skin.
Great to know.
@BennyTheHill Fake Tits Twit, sorry i forgot you have a hunky boyfriend so Prince Harry does nothing for you. That picture of the Oranje turd Dumph on your trailer wall must give you many a wanking pleasure!
thought it said TEAM ANUS. I have reading probs LOL
@Max I think it was wishful thinking. LOL
Doesn’t count if he isn’t wearing them.
I love to see Prince Harry wearing a Speedo. WOOF.
Disappointing – I wanted to see him smuggling the budgie.
BTH, even as a Barkeep I would eat Harry breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Bravo to Harry. He’s bringing honor and joy to the wounded warriors. And all you jealous queens who are whining about Royalty because you weren’t born into it can stuff it.
I was in London pre Sussex wedding. Working on 5 year contract with marketing.
The daily attacks if the Sussex’s started before the wedding! Horrible ‘ghetto trash’, black references in the rudest racist referenced ways and it never stopped!
As she was in bed rest 1st pregnancy for 4 months she was on the front page with the press aggressively lying about imagined faux pas’s and rude encounters with politicians, aristocrats and Windsor family – 7 times a week.
It was racist, brutal, aggressive and as the Duchess quoted Princess Margaret, she attributed it to her for the press: ‘Princess Margaret said, if I understand correctly, ‘now that they have a good princess I see they need me to be the bad princess!”
The press attacked her even more thereafter calling it defaming a beloved royal, insulting the press as cruel and her being ‘ trash from Compton’ as no one gave her training for royal duties. And she failed at everything she did.
Really? At everything?
Come on! That is the worst!
She was never poor. Never from Compton. Never trying to hurt anyone. And her self worth was attacked worse any royal before her. Fact. Even Sarah, Duchess of York.
They set up her niave father to be ‘angry and hurt’ by his daughters behaviour. BUT …
They lived next door, financed some his bills even paying his rent to get access to letters from his daughter to use against her.
When they suggested a clothes shopping photo shoot in LA to prepare for the wedding, but not actually buying anything … press set him up & used it against him!, called the two of them and family posers seeking only media attention, like Megan, his daughter!”
The lies were taken to court. The Sussex’s won 2/3 battles and requested money to go to their charities.
The press doubled down to hit them harder for not taking it on the chin and for fighting back. Zero self respect from press was their view of their right to report the royals way.
Other royals in fear paid for lavish press parties to get positive press coverage. The Sussex’s refused.
If you believe what you read your niave at best. Ti judge them by a couple of poor decisions and ignore their successes and their right to positive mental health after a 4 year beating them up and creating a bitter grueling feud in the press against them was calculated. Cruel racist & intentional. You have been lied to more by the press and believed it vs finding the real truth or lack thereof.
Megan was dragged through the news for engagements she was never on the Royal Calendar for months. That is reported daily if you want to know the truth.
The persons of colour living in the UK were uplifted by Duke & Duchess standing up to systemic racism. Citizens of colour were saying it is how people of colour are treated every single day in the press and on the streets. And yet the same people don’t ever admit their racism!
This is a complex series of layers. Positive and negative. Commenting to only further trash the Sussex family is social ignorance and deeper racism than we are willing to admit.
I don’t see any royal, except Sarah, Duchess of York, who had the understanding of how vicious and cruel the set up is to show only ones failures for infotainment at every corner non stop for decades.
It is irreversible damage and weakens the people, the royals and deepens the hate by people who want cheap, dirty, fun to assault anyone at any cost for news front page dishonsst mostly scoops!
I think human dignity is dying on the vine as we let media tell us what to think and feel. Its criminal how easier it is to make tens of millions hate or love one person over another without journalistic integrity for the truth.
I left breaking my work contract early, paying a fine of $5000, because garbage was spread on news stands daily, news shows TV press and radio by nasty opinionated racists wanting click bait shows every where I went.
I went to the airport deepky depressed and swearing never to visit England against and boycotting the filth and stratospheric egos of Rupert Murdock and others who made tens of millions in profit destroying people for entertainment.
Its the lowest human behaviour I have ever seen in my life.
The British have a love hate relationship with the aristocrats and Windsor family. But watch out if you think you have a right to an opinion if you are not English!
Get a life. Find good news. Demand better. Look up instead of down and give money and patronage time to fostering more moral and ethical treatment to all people.
I have seen paparazzi destroy lives, get people fired from jobs on a baseless rumor and then go to court and lose only to continue their devotion to gossip and negativity without a shread of evidence to support freedom to lie vs obligations to speak truth.
They need to ask:
Is it true?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
Is it advancing our minds and hearts for greater success, understanding and compassion?
I have seen them trash and find fault with the Pope and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
This behaviour is sociopathic and ruining the minds of a nation and influencing public opinion around the world. Its a created and shared negativity by everyone who believes it.
Karma is a b*tch. Be careful of what you think and say. There are consequences whether now or later for negativity and slandering gossip.
can someone give me the Trump 1 line synopsis of the above, not here to read War & Peace.
Well, Harry marrying that dimwitted actress was a new low for the British monarchy.
You’re insane. Nobody in their right mind types a post that long about people they’ve never met. The coverage of ginge and whinge was overwhelmingly positive in the UK until well after the wedding and only turned sour when her manufactured departure from the country happened. Maybe we aren’t as credulous as Americans and we can spot a grifter more easily.
Either way, good riddance to them, they’re your problem now.
Thank you. Once again, all of the detractors deny the presence of racism, while being racist.
That is all this anti Sussex sentiment is.
@LunaSol2010: thank you for your thoughtful submission. I agree with everything you’ve written. I am a white American – and was an Anglophile until encountering the endless, shockingly negative, racist press assaulting Meghan Markle (and Harry).
Racism in the UK is quite different from American racism, but just as ugly.
@nm407 – The press is mean and racist.
bennythehole is piers morgan?
I live in Austin, TX. Can I get. pair of those?
mm4047 in a nutshell the British press are racist trolls who have been systematically trying to destroy the lives of anyone they deem lesser than. Meghan was targeted from the moment she met Harry and for years they have attacked her baselessly and the Royal Corporation did nothing to help. Which is why they left the organization and moved to the states.
