Prince Harry of the United Kingdom decided to move with his wife Meghan and son to California after realizing that his father, Prince Charles, “treated him like he was treated,” he said in a broadcast interview Thursday evening (13).
The comments come weeks after Harry and Meghan’s explosive TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which they spoke about racism in the royal family and said Charles had cut them off financial support.
Harry told “Armchair Expert” podcast host Dax Shephard that, without blaming his father, he decided to avoid making the same mistakes with his own children.
“When it comes to raising children, if I have experienced any pain or suffering because of the pain and suffering that my father or parents may have suffered, I will make sure to break this cycle.” , did he declare.
“There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that is passed on anyway. And as parents, we should do our best to try and say, ‘You know what? It happened to me, I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen to you, ‘”he added.
Harry said his father hadn’t had an easy life because he was brought up as royalty. “It means he treated me like they treated him.” How can I change this for my own children? “Well, here I am,” the prince told Shephard. “I moved with my whole family to the United States.” The couple currently live in Montecito, an hour north of Los Angeles, and are expecting a daughter.
Harry and Oprah will collaborate again on the mental health documentary series “The Me You Can’t See”, which premieres May 21 on Apple TV +.
While promoting the new series, Harry told Shepherd that he realized he didn’t want to fulfill his royal duties when he was in his twenties, in part because of what happened to his mother, the Princess Diana (1961-1997), who was still being sued. by photographers.
“The three times I felt completely helpless were: the first, when I was a kid in the back of the car with my mother being chased by paparazzi; two, in Afghanistan in an Apache helicopter, and the third was with my wife, ”mentioned.
