The Sun, a popular British Newspaper with sales of around 1.5 million copies daily has featured Prince Harry and his wife Meghan on the front cover with the headline “Harry Krishna” after the Prince revealed that he meditates daily.
Whilst he is not chanting the mahamantra, for the British press to make the connection between meditation and our movement is very powerful.
Prince Harry practices a form of Buddhist meditation. On a visit to a cafe and supermarket that sells discounted food to people on low incomes, they met a 69-year-old Buddhist monk who gave Harry a copy of a book entitled 8 Steps to Happiness after the Prince told him that he meditates every day.
This revelation came as the couple visited Birkenhead on the Wirral peninsula for engagements, including a walkabout in the town centre.
