Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, were the star guests in Miami on Thursday evening at the American bank JPMorgan Chase, their first public outing together since their divorce from Buckingham Palace, two people present at the event told AFP.

Harry and his wife were taking part in the annual JPMorgan Chase party, which each year brings together around 300 of its biggest clients, including big bosses and some of the world’s wealthiest people, they told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The couple expressed themselves during the evening. According to witnesses at the party, Harry said that he did not regret withdrawing from the royal family.

He said he did not want his wife, Meghan Markle, and son, Archie, to go through what he went through as a child, reports the New York Post.

The prince also reportedly addressed the issue of mental health problems by referring to the death of his mother, Princess Lady Di.

“Harry talked about mental health and how he had been in therapy for several years to help him get over the death of his mother,” a source told the Post.

“He talked about the hard times that hurt him when he was young and how he had been seeing mental health professionals ever since.”

This isn’t the first time the Prince has spoken publicly about mental health issues.

Already in 2017, he told the Mad World podcast about how he struggled to deal with his emotions after Diana’s tragic death.

“I can certainly say that losing my mother at the age of 12 and putting my emotions aside for the last 20 years has had a very significant effect, not only on my personal life, but also on my work,” he said.

“I put my head in the sand for a long time so I wouldn’t think about my mother. “What good would it have done, I thought?”

Side by side with the elite

The theme of the evening, which took place at the luxury 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami with basketball player Magic Johnson and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez as other guests, was devoted to investments in urban areas in the United States, education and how to create a wealthy class among the black population.

Contacted by AFP, JPMorgan Chase declined to comment. The firm also refused to say whether Prince Harry and his wife Meghan had been paid to appear at the charity event.

British tabloids such as the Daily Mirror, however, claim that the couple received more than £400,000 (about $686,000).

According to sources close to the case, this type of event allows star guests to rub shoulders with the business elite and the world’s wealthiest people.

This can lead to the creation of an address book and the opening up of opportunities.

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, recently gave up their title of Royal Highness and some of their income.

According to several experts, they could easily capitalize on their strong image in the form of books, partnerships or public appearances.
