Prince Harry saddened by loss of friend who trained him for South Pole trek – Royal Central

Prince Harry is said to be devastated at the loss of his close friend, Jules Roberts, who died at the age of 37 after reportedly taking his own life.

Roberts trained the Prince for his South Pole charity trek in aid of the military charity, Walking With The Wounded a few years ago when Harry undertook the gruelling hike to the South Pole in 2013.

According to an exclusive by The Mirror, the Duke of Sussex sent a private note and flowers to Roberts’ widow, Francesca and a daughter who is just two-years-old at a crematorium for the funeral.

Harry and Jules Roberts were said to have hit it off during the training for the South Pole event and were said to have developed a “mutual respect.”

It comes as no surprise that His Royal Highness has been “very upset” according to an insider who added that Roberts’ death came “as a real shock” to Harry.

Jules Roberts served as the chief executive of Sharegift – a charity with offices located close to Buckingham Palace. The organisation “provides a charitable solution to the business problem of small shareholdings,” according to its website.

Roberts was said to have also provided funding for the Heads Together mental health charity Harry started with his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Heads Together served as the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year.

The Walking With The Wounded founder, Ed Parker, spoke about the loss of Roberts saying, “He was a properly good person with an energy beyond what you could imagine and everything was done with a huge great toothy grin.”

“He had this extraordinary ability to engage with people. He was a diamond.

“I know that he admired hugely Harry’s commitment to both mental health and the veteran community. There was a lot of respect both ways.”
