Usain Bolt says pal Prince Harry is about married life and admits losing touch

Prince Harry is focused on his married life now according to Olympic runner Usain Bolt, who has opened up on losing touch with his old friend.

The sports star has spoken out about his documented friendship with the Duke of Sussex, 37, and despite the pair once being good pals – they haven't "talked in a while".

When the Royal, who was chatted up by Jade Thirlwall after the rest of Little Mix urged her to flirt with him at an event in 2015, was a single man who often appeared at various events and took part in charity projects with his elder brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, he had a solid friendship with the 35 year old champion.

Since getting married to Meghan Markle and subsequently moving to America however, where the couple now live with their two children Archie, two, and Lilibet, six months, things have changed.

Harry and Usain first met over a decade ago but became friends during the Duke's Caribbean tour in 2012.

The prince managed to beat Usain in hilarious scenes during a sprint race, as he jumped the start gun.

The pair became firm friends, and the runner even offered to help arrange Harry's stag do when he got engaged to Meghan in 2017, according to reports.

In an interview with The Sun, Usain revealed he "didn't" assist in the planning after all.


"I think he got really serious, really quickly," the star then said.

"He is about married life and good for it now so has left that life behind now.

"I haven’t talked to him in a while but I still would like to keep in contact," the Olympian added.

At the time, the sportsman even joked Harry needed to enjoy his "last nights of freedom".

"I know it's a lot to ask but these are his last nights of freedom," Usain said.

"I will personally call Meghan and take responsibility for getting him home safely after each."

Four years ago, Usain was excited to help Harry have three stag dos in total, with plans for Kingston, Las Vegas and London.
