After Prince Harry’s keynote speech at the United Nations, royal expert Jonathan Saserdoti spoke about why he believes that the appearance of the royal family does not seem appropriate.

“I can’t say I was surprised [by his speech in the UN General Assembly Hall in New York], given that he makes it a habit. But I certainly wasn’t impressed,” Sacherdoti told Us Weekly on Tuesday, July 19, about the Duke of Sussex’s recent involvement. “The reason for this is because Prince Harry realized that he really wanted to escape from this royal circus, in which he felt he was trapped.”

The journalist said that Harry’s actions are not consistent with his previous statements, adding: “Why did he speak at the UN? Because he’s Prince Harry, otherwise, without wanting to be too offensive, no one would be interested in a guy who is pushing through high school opinions about world affairs.”

According to Sacherdoti, 37-year-old Harry “does not have the qualifications” to discuss world problems. “He literally has absolutely no right to tell people something important, but instead he uses his position as a member of the British royal family to spread what he considers an important message,” he continued. “Now I don’t dispute whether this message is important or not, but I dispute whether he really is has any right to distribute it to us, at the same time that he told us that he doesn’t like the attention of being royal.

The broadcaster concluded: “If you want to use the status of a member of this royal family for what you consider good deeds and good goals, you have to obey their rules, because it’s just polite.”

Sacerdoti’s insight comes during Harry and Meghan Markle’s trip to New York. The couple, who have son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 13 months, previously hit the headlines when they announced their plans to give up their roles in the royal family. In 2021, they confirmed that the solution had become permanent and moved to the United States before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 40-year-old graduate of Force Majeure later spoke about how her mental health suffered because of the British press. “I just didn’t see the solution. I sat up at night and just didn’t understand how all this was happening,” she said in a candid interview with CBS in March 2021. — I realized that all this is happening. only because I was breathing. I was very ashamed to say [how I felt] at that time and ashamed to admit it to Harry, especially because I know how many losses he suffered.”

Harry, for his part, also explained that therapy helped him cope with his own problems. “It was a conversation I had with my now wife. She saw it. She saw it right away. She could tell that I was in pain, and some things that I couldn’t control made me very angry. It would make my blood boil,” he said during an appearance on the Dax Shepard “Armchair Expert” podcast in May 2021.

At the time, Harry compared his stay in the UK to being in a cage. “It’s a mix of the Truman Show and life at the zoo,” he added. “The biggest problem for me was that, having been born in it, you inherit the risk. You inherit every element of it without a choice. And because of the way the British media works, they feel they own you.

He continued: “In my 20s, I thought: “I don’t want this job. Look what it’s done to my mom, how I’ll ever settle down, get a wife and family when I know it’s going to happen again.” works. I don’t want to be a part of it. Then, when I started doing therapy, suddenly the bubble burst.”
