Prince Harry considered quitting royal life in his twenties – fr

LOS ANGELES – Prince Harry compared his royal experience to that of ‘The Truman Show’ and ‘living in a zoo’.

The Duke of Sussex said on a Thursday episode of the ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast that he was considering leaving royal life on several occasions while in his 20s. He spoke candidly with host Dax Shepard about the need to keep his relationship with Meghan a secret and face British media scrutiny.

Harry thought his life was like Jim Carrey’s 1998 movie “The Truman Show”. The film tells a story about the life of Truman Burbank televised through hidden cameras while meeting people who were hired actors.

Harry said it was a heavy burden and he struggled to cope with being a member of the royal family. He feared that his pregnant wife and son, Archie, would have to face the spotlight in the same way his late mother, Princess Diana, had to deal with enormous attention.

In 1997, Diana died in a car accident at the age of 36 in Paris while being chased by paparazzi.

“I don’t want this job, I don’t want to be here, I don’t want to do this. Look what it did to my mom, ”said Harry, 36.

In a previous interview, Harry said the Royal Family cut him off financially in early 2020 after announcing his intention to step down from his roles. But he was able to ensure the safety of his family thanks to the money left by his mother.

Harry and Meghan’s departure from royal duties began last year amid what they described as British media intrusions and racist attitudes towards the Duchess. He criticized some American media, but said they were an improvement over those in the UK.

He feels more liberated after he and his family move to California.

“Living here now, I can actually lift my head and feel really different,” said Harry, who added that he was able to take Archie on bike rides. “You can walk around feeling a little more free. ”
