US Backlash for Prince Harry intensifies



US Backlash for Prince Harry intensifies


Following a series of contentious encounters with American media, Prince Harry has faced a barrage of criticism. Following his shocking Oprah Winfrey interview with Meghan Markle, Harry’s popularity has dwindled in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Harry is seeing his “popularity go right down” in both the UK and the US as a result of more recent initiatives.

“This guy was a hero in Britain and now he is the zero, I’m afraid,” Charlie Rae, a former royal editor for the Sun, said on talkRADIO.

“His popularity has gone right down. There was a poll the other night which showed 54 percent of people just wished he would shut up.”

“The popularity polls for him and Meghan on both sides of the Atlantic are plummeting,” radio commentator Kevin O’Sullivan remarked.

“He made the serious mistake a couple weeks back of questioning America’s sacred First Amendment, which is about freedom of speech.

“Americans do not take kindly to interlopers who turn up in their country and criticise it.”


“He has faced an awful lot of criticism within America,” Mr Rae continued.

“He made a big mistake in criticising the First Amendment.

“There has been an awful lot of traffic on social media from Americans saying ‘if you don’t like it here, head off back’.”



Mr Rae referenced a Newsweek study that revealed more than half of Britons want to hear less about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

On the Armchair Expert podcast, the duke spoke with actor Dax Shepherd and producer Monica Padman.

“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” he seemed to criticize the amendment – the right to free expression.

“I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.

“But, you can find a loophole in anything.

“You can capitalise or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”

In the United States, the First Amendment protects a variety of fundamental liberties, including freedom of religion, speech, and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.

Commentators in the United Kingdom to “take him back”

After hearing Harry’s remarks, Sean Hannity, the host of the third-largest evening news show in the United States, went on a rant at the close of his show on Monday night, calling him a “right royal pain in the a**”

“Harry, we don’t need you coming from England to lecture us on the First Amendment,” he remarked.

“And if you can’t understand the importance of free expression and the importance of Constitutional principles that allow for a free exchange of ideas and opinions that make America the greatest country on earth then maybe it’s time for you to move to a place more compatible with your restrictive ideas.

“This is what public figures in America go through.”

He added: “Understand this is the same First Amendment that allowed you and your wife to trash your own family in the Oprah Winfrey interview. You and Meghan were allowed to accuse your family of racism.

“We don’t really need lectures about customs or sacred freedoms, 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.”
