Las Vegas, Nevada – February 10, 2024 – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are gearing up for a touchdown this weekend, with reports claiming they will be attending the Super Bowl in Las Vegas. This news comes just days after Prince Harry’s surprise appearance at the NFL Honors ceremony, where he presented the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
Super Bowl LVIII
Super Bowl LVIII is shaping up to be a thrilling matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The game kicks off on February 11th, 2024.
On Sunday, February 12, Prince Harry will attend the big game with his wife, Meghan Markle, according to Fox News. This follows his whirlwind trip to London earlier this week, where he briefly visited his father, King Charles, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
Harry’s pre-scheduled NFL Honors appearance has fueled speculation about the timing of his visit to the UK. Some wonder if the trip was solely focused on seeing his ailing father, or if it also served as a convenient stop before the Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas.
Prince harry jokes
At the American football award ceremony, the prince made a series of jokes comparing rugby to American football.
Harry said onstage: “I really love how you stole rugby from us and you made it your own…Instead of passing it backwards, just pass it forwards. Why not wear pads and a helmet?
“Of course, have an offence and defence, that makes sense, and why not have a breather every 15 seconds? And you know what? Instead of a 10-month season, let’s just make it 18 weeks. Genius.
“All kidding aside, what you guys do on and off the field is truly remarkable. You are role models for millions in the way you carry yourselves and the way you give back.”
