Prince Harry used to be like his late grandfather, Prince Philip, but he has changed and has no sense of humor anymore, according to a royal expert.
Prince Harry was once one of the most popular members of the royal family. However, things changed after he and his wife, Meghan Markle, moved to the United States. Their popularity rating also dropped after their interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
Prince Harry no longer funny
Prince Harry has gained a lot of supporters when he was still in the U.K. and serving the monarchy. At present, he has gained a lot of critics after his interviews, where he seemed to attack his own family.
Thomas Mace-Archer Mills, the founder of the British Monarchists Society, said the Duke of Sussex used to be like his grandfather, Prince Philip. However, he seemed to have lost his humor.
The Duke of Sussex seemed to be devising a “new persona” in the United States. He used to be known for his sense of humor when he was still in the Firm. In fact, he occasionally missed the mark, like in 2005 when he dressed up as a Nazi at a colonials and natives party. However, he noticed that he has changed a lot and is very different from what he used to be.
He felt that Meghan Markle’s husband has ignored and forgot his less than favorable gaffes by burying them under several layers of political correctness woke. He felt that the duke is created a new persona that will distance him from his past wrongdoings, Mirror reported.
“Harry used to be like his grandfather, he had charisma and charm – he was able to also use humor as a tool, but this is where the similarities end,” Mace-Archer Mills said.
“Not only have times changed, so has Prince Harry,” he added.
Duke of Sussex’s revelations in recent interviews
Prince Harry made several serious allegations against his own family in his recent interview. In his podcast interview with Dax Shepard, Prince Harry said he has a different parenting approach than his dad, Prince Charles. He didn’t want to follow the Prince of Wales’ parenting because he wanted to cut the cycle of genetic pain.
Prince Harry’s statement raised some eyebrows because it also reflected the Queen and Prince Philip’s parenting.
In the docuseries The Me You Can’t See, Prince Harry claimed that his wife, Meghan Markle, was a victim of the firm and media’s coordinated smear campaign. He also alleged that he didn’t receive the help he expected from his family.
Due to Prince Harry’s constant attacks toward his family, Piers Morgan accused him of constantly abusing the royal family.
