SAS Australia instructor reveals why he can't see his good friend Prince Harry anymore


SAS Australia’s Dean Stott opens up about his 15-year friendship with Prince Harry and reveals why they don’t see each other as much these days: ‘He has a young family’


He’s led a fascinating life as a soldier, private security consultant, motivational speaker and the newest member of the directing staff on the upcoming season of SAS Australia. 

But it’s Dean Stott’s friendship with Prince Harry that’s always been thrusted into the spotlight, which the 44-year-old admits he finds baffling.

‘I’ve broken two world records, raised millions of dollars for charity, single-handedly evacuated a Canadian embassy but all people are interested in is what my ginger friend is up to?’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

Stott retained a close bond with the Duke of Sussex for many years after the pair met on a training course for the British army and did tours together in Afghanistan. 

The duo have since drifted apart primarily due to both men spending more time with their separate families and the media frenzy following Harry and wife Meghan Markle after they stepped back from the royal family.

‘I have a young family and he has a young family so we can’t see each other as much – they’re not quite as local as people like to make out,’ Stott continued.

Dean reveals that he and Harry have known each other for 15 years, which began ‘before he met Meghan’ and before Stott met his wife.

He comments that it’s ‘nice’ to see Harry as ‘a family man’.  

The SAS instructor is very defensive of the Duke and makes an effort to avoid the media headlines surrounding the Sussexes.

‘I get friends from back home asking me about things they’ve seen in the press and I just reply I haven’t seen it,’ Stott added.  

Stott is a brand new member of the directing staff on the upcoming season of SAS Australia.

It’s his first appearance in front of a TV camera, which he says has been ‘really comforting’ as the show is not scripted and there’s ‘no producers running in and out’.

SAS Australia premieres Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Seven
