Prince Harry is joining Radio 4 in this exciting new role
Christmas just got a whole lot more exciting...
It was announced today that Prince Harry will be coming on board Radio 4, joining itsToday Programmeas a guest editor over the festive period.
For the 14th consecutive year, control of the show will be handed over to a selection of public figures to guest edit between Christmas and New Year – allowing them to shine a light on the issues close to their heart.
Being an advocate for so many charities and foundations, it’s going to be hard for Prince Harry to choose the issues to focus on, being at the forefront of multiple movements from the Heads Together campaign to The Invictus Games, but according to Kensington Palace he has already started producing his chosen segments.
‘He is working closely withToday‘s team to produce segments on a range of topics, including youth violence, conservation and mental health,’ a statement read.
The 33-year-old prince is in good company, with his fellow guest editors including Baroness Trumpington, Tamara Rojo, Ben Okri – and even an actual robot. Yes, really.
‘We are delighted by the range of guest editors this year,’ announced Sarah Sands, editor ofToday. ‘This Christmas tradition allows our listeners to benefit from the experiences and perspectives of remarkable public figures. We finish with a programme dedicated to AI which gives a glimpse of the future ofToday.’
While a set date for Prince Harry’s segments haven’t yet been confirmed, we officially cannot wait.
