Royal watchers watching Prince Harry’s latest appearance only narrowly missed the moment the Duke of Sussex was rocked by a terrifying earthquake. In the wee hours of Thursday morning, a massive 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck Los Angeles. Omid Scobie, royal contributor to ABC News, and author of the controversial new biography Finding Freedom, revealed that Harry “certainly would have felt it.”
Scobie explained, “It was a really interesting opportunity to hear Harry talk about something he’s so passionate about.
“And he also faced some rather unique circumstances. I can’t talk about this story without talking about it.

The royal expert, who is close to both Harry and Meghan, continued: “He didn’t just run this summit around midnight his time in Los Angeles so that as many attendees as possible can join us. .
“There was also a second part at around 8 am UK time, and it was in the middle of that, around 4:29 am, that an earthquake hit Los Angeles.
“It was a 4.2 magnitude earthquake and was felt strongly by many.
“We’ve seen a lot of celebrities talk about it on social media.
In his virtual summit speech he hosted, the 35-year-old royal urged the travel industry to ‘build back better’ in the wake of the pandemic.
The Travalyst Summit was Prince Harry’s first appearance since Omid Scobie’s biographical claims were first published.
The Sussexes’ biography Finding Freedom has been published serially by The Times and The Sunday Times and describes the rift between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal family.
There are fears that the publication of the book could spark a new row within the royal family.
