The infamous Oprah interview placed the Sussexes under the spotlight and their work and life in America is now number one discussed topic, especially because they are giving even more interviews and speak publicly of their life as Royals and how everything changed after they left Britain.
Recently, both Harry and Meghan were part of a television fundraiser VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.
Harry, however, seems to be more present in the media, which he tends to slam whenever he gets an opportunity. Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast, Harry touched on a lot of topics. Among the rest, he spoke of his upbringing and said how his father, Prince Charles, handed down a “cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” and how he wants to break that cycle.
“I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody. But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure that I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on basically,” Harry said.
“There’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway, as parents we should be doing the most that we can to try and say ‘you know what that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’”
Harry continued: “I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it all together and go OK so this where he went to school, this is what happened.
“I know this bit about his life, I also know that’s connected to his parents. So that means that he’s treating me the way that he was treated. Which means how can I change that for my own kids?”
He explained how he wanted to leave the royal life when he was in his twenties and admitted he started therapy.
Harry also said that he feels more free now that he lives in the States but described America’s First Amendment as “bonkers” and added that you can find a loophole in anything. “I believe we live in an age now where you’ve got certain elements of the media redefining to us what privacy means. There’s a massive conflict of interest,” Harry said.
This didn’t make Fox host Sean Hannity happy so he decided to teach Prince Harry a lesson. During his lengthy monologue, Hannity said:
“I have a message for Harry, who is now attacking one of America’s most sacred rights, the freedom of speech under our First Amendment. Harry, we really don’t need you coming from England to give us lectures on the First Amendment.
“And if he can’t understand the importance of free expression and the importance of constitutional principles that allow for a free exchange of ideas and ideals and opinions that have made America the greatest country on Earth. Maybe it’s time for you to move to a place more compatible with your restrictive ideas.”
The host added that it was the amendment that actually allowed Harry to trash his family during the Oprah interview and other occasions.
“We don’t really need lectures about customs or sacred freedoms,” Hannity continued.
“And by the way, you’re free to go home, make amends at the palace with the people that you and your wife hurt deeply. And by the way, you’re enjoying the freedoms protected under the First Amendment as you’re living in America and an expensive place. Let not your heart be troubled.”
However, many found Harry’s appearance on the podcast humorous and beautiful as he also touched on many light-hearted things.
