While Prince Harry, 38, has praised his late mother Princess Diana, he has so far had less to say about his father, the current King, comparing her “compassion” and “warmth” to his wife’s. Charles III.

“I think it’s a responsibility as a human being that if you bring a little person into this world, you have to do whatever you can to make the world a better place for them,” she says of her journey with parenthood. he did not want to repeat the “same mistakes” of his parents.

Harry also said he was “completely raised” by his “second family” in Africa, where he retreated for weeks and months after his mother’s death in 1997.

“It’s unconscious bias,” he continued. “It’s not really anyone’s fault, but once it’s pointed out or identified within you, you have to fix it.”

Harry also visited his estranged brother, Prince William, and his wife, Duchess Catherine, the Prince and Princess of Wales.

“I think for a lot of people in the family, especially the men, there can be a temptation or a desire to marry someone who fits the mold as opposed to someone you’re supposed to be with,” Harry said. cameras.

Harry’s kick followed An embarrassing memory of Meghan His first meeting with William and Kate revealed that he did not accept his natural warmth.

Without specifying how the heir to the throne and his wife reacted to her presence, Markle said: “I’m a hugger and I’ve always been. I didn’t realize it was terrible for a lot of Britons.

“I think that I began to understand very quickly that external formality goes inside … And it surprised me,” he lamented.

Harry and Meghan also described their struggle to deal with the media frenzy surrounding their relationship, with Harry referring to the lack of support he received from his family when he aired his grievances.

“And some family members said, ‘But my wife had to go through this, so why should your girlfriend be treated differently?’ Why do you need special treatment? Why protect it? And I said that the difference here is the element of race,” he continued, pointing out various false headlines about Meghan’s background in the documentary.

For her part, Meghan said she was never “treated like a black woman” before moving to the UK.

The couple took issue with a separate Daily Mail headline which claimed Harry’s then-girlfriend “(almost) walked out on Compton straight away”.

Meghan, who described herself as a “daddy’s girl” growing up – who splits her time between her father and her mother, Doria Ragland, who divorced when she was six – recalled feeling “lonely” as a child and wanting “more people around”.

“It’s like the big family I’ve always wanted,” Meghan said in the documentary series. “It was constant action, energy and fun.”

His entry into royal life was complicated by repeated quarrels with his father. After a series of public hiccups and last-minute medical attention, Markle Sr. was unable to attend his daughter’s wedding at Windsor Castle in May 2018.
