Prince Harry gets back into action post-lockdown with several significant appearances within a week

The Duke of Sussex is ready for the next chapter.

Prince Harry has emerged from lockdown stronger than ever, it seems - and his first movements are proof that there are big things ahead.
Earlier this week, he and wife Duchess Meghan were spotted helping volunteers prepare food for local LA charity Homeboy Industries, with an image of them in the kitchen's sea of faces going viral.
We can't be surprised at the excitement the snap was met with - this was the first time we'd seen the pair together in months.
As it turns out, that day out volunteering was only the beginning.
In a brand new video released today, Harry teamed up with the Rugby Football Union alongside several iconic players, including the men's captain Owen Farrell, former rugby legend Jonny Wilkinson, and two revered coaches - women's captain Sarah Hunter and men's coach Eddie Jones.
In the video, Harry is seen speaking to the camera from what appears to be his home in Los Angeles.

The British Prince sits casually in the frame, and speaks about the Pitch In campaign launched by England's RFU.
He reveals something he and many others have missed during the pandemic.
"We all miss rugby," Harry said, as Owen chimed in, saying "This pandemic might have paused the game."
Very aptly, Harry added: "But it hasn't taken away our spirit."

The union shared the candid video on Instagram along with the caption: "When the game was paused, the rugby family came together as one. Thank you from all of us at England Rugby."
They also added the hastag #PitchIn.
A number of people flocked to the comments section to share their excitement in seeing the Prince collaborate in the campaign.
"Brilliant video 💙 I love that Prince Harry is in it too!" Wrote one excited fan.
Another added: "Awesome video, so happy you all put Harry in it."

It seems Harry's work is being largely well-received as he begins his next chapter outside of being a senior royal family member.
He also penned a heartfelt letter to war veterans who have been doing some incredible work amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
The letter was addressed to Team Rubicon, who have been delivering meals to people in need during lockdown in collaboration with another of Meghan Markle's beloved charities, Hubb Community Kitchen.
Harry wrote: "I am writing to express my sincerest thanks to Team Rubicon following their support delivering meals across London from the Hubb Community Kitchen.
"As you may know, the Hubb Community Kitchen is an initiative incredibly close to my wife's heart that continues to be supported by the legacy of their community cookbook Together… at a time when there is so much uncertainty and isolation, to see the coming together of organisations my wife and I champion so strongly was truly humbling."

Harry's busy week has certainly proved he means business from here on in - especially now he and Meghan have settled into their new city Los Angeles.
As for what's next, we can expect to see the pair engage in some high profile speaking engagements, after they were signed with the Harry Walker Agency, which boasts a client list of Michelle and Barack Obama, along with Oprah Winfrey and the Clintons.
Watch this space indeed...
