Prince Harry is set to receive a controversial award on Thursday, which has sparked significant backlash, some from friends of the Royal Family.

Prince Harry has been slammed for his latest “pathetic” move as he shows he is still in “desperate need of attention”, royal sources have opined.

The Duke is set to accept the Pat Tillman Award for Service – named after an NFL player-turned-army vet who tragically died in a friendly fire incident in Afghanistan – for his work with the Invictus Games.

Unless he declines the award, he will be handed it during the ESPY Awards on June 11, which has sparked outrage from those close to the Royal Family.

A friend of the Firm told The Daily Beast: “I’m afraid it’s just a clear symbol of his desperate need for attention. The irony of the whole of the last four years is that Harry and Meghan said they were leaving the Royal Family so the media would leave them alone.”

Tillman’s mother Mary also expressed her anger at the nomination, telling The Daily Mail: “I am shocked as to why they would select such a controversial and divisive individual to receive the award. There are recipients that are far more fitting.”
