Prince Harry’s Privacy Fight Has Been Criticized as ‘Utterly Ridiculous’

A royal commentator said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don’t want privacy. Instead, they just want to be in charge of what is written about them.

As the Duke joined singer Elton John at the UK High Court for a hearing in the case against Associated Newspapers, royal commentators again criticized his move about privacy.

Tom Slater says that the notion that Prince Harry is the “poster boy for privacy” is “utterly ridiculous” because, after reading his memoir Spare, “I feel as though I know his anatomy better than my own.”

The editor of Spiked Online told Sky News Australia Host Andrew Bolt, “Prince Harry is on a crusade against the British press, and it’s not just because they’re accused of crimes, but also because they don’t agree with him.”

Slater also said, “For criticizing him when he and Meghan Markle first started dating, saying that the comments about Meghan had racist undertones.”

The commentator continued, “Slater scoffed at the Duke being referred to as the “poster boy for privacy” because, after reading Spare, he felt he knew the Duke’s anatomy better than his own.

He kept going on: “The idea that Prince Harry is the “poster boy for privacy” is completely ridiculous, especially since, as you point out, he has been pretty seriously accused of breaking his own family’s privacy in his Netflix documentary and Spare. I think he’s also broken his own rules about privacy. After reading his book, I feel like I know way too much about this person. I feel like I know more about his body than I do about mine.”

The expert criticized Harry’s decision: “They don’t really want privacy; they want to be in the news constantly.”

“They just want to be in charge of what people say about them, and that’s been a common theme in this whole Harry and Meghan show.”

The younger son of King Charles III, Harry, is in London for a four-day preliminary hearing about his privacy claim against Associated Newspapers. Harry and others have filed a lawsuit against the Daily Mail’s publisher, alleging that they tapped their phones and violated their privacy in other ways.
