Harry joked with Matt Weston, who was a bomb disposal expert in Afghanistan, about bringing his US actress girlfriend to the event, around a year after their relationship hit the headlines.

"I asked if she would come next time because she's awesome, and he said he couldn't hide her anywhere, but I said you wouldn't have to hide her.
