Prince Harry has spoken to James Corden about what he thinks about The Crown, the Netflix series about the life of the British Royal Family. The prince says he has more respect for the series than for the stories made up by the tabloid press.
“It’s fiction,” said Harry. “They don’t pretend to be us, but what you see is loosely based on the truth. The series is not very accurate, but it does give an idea of what the life of the royal family looks like. And what pressure you experience when you should always give priority to tasks over your family. “
The prince therefore has more respect for the fictional The Crown then for the stories the tabloid press writes about him and his loved ones: “In those articles everything is presented as fact. I really have problems with that.”
His feud with the British tabloid press prompted Prince Harry to withdraw with his wife Meghan Markle in early 2020 and stop working for the royal family. They will not return in this role, the couple said last week.
Harry emphasizes that he has not run away from his family with this. “We took a step back, but it doesn’t mean we have nothing to do with them anymore. What happened has been devastating to my mental health. So I did what any other person would do: I withdrew. “
The prince and his wife will have a similar role to what they had in England. “We will continue to contribute to society. Wherever we are in the world, we want to keep doing this.”
Harry and Meghan currently live in Los Angeles and are expecting a second child. Soon they will also be guests of Oprah Winfrey, a good friend of the couple.
