Prince Harry has spoken of his divided conscience whilst promoting the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for injured servicemen.

In his role as organiser for the charity initiative Harry has been tasked with promoting the event through social media, something he has had to do through gritted teeth after admitting he ‘hates’ Twitter.

Speaking at Bethnal Green Academy, where pupils are being trained as ‘digital champions’ for the games Harry said: “I would love to get involved and go on social media and if it was for causes like this I really would.

“The issue for myself and my family, put quite simply, is that it’s very hard for me to tweet about the Invictus Games and tweet about something that means a lot to me, whereas I at the same time really quite hate Twitter by the invasion of privacy.”

Pupils at the academy are being taught are currently being taught how to harness Facebook and Twitter to promote the September event.
