Prince Harry heartbreak: Duke ‘defends Sussex brand’ in ‘urgent’ new video – expert



PRINCE HARRY issued an ‘urgent’ defence of his and Meghan Markle’s ‘Sussex brand’ during their latest video appearance. A language expert has claimed the Duke seemed keen to emphasise he and Meghan were hosting and not ‘lecturing’ in the new clip.

Meghan and Harry spoke to Time’s editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal via video link from their Montecito mansion.

Addressing why he thinks it’s important to create online communities that are more compassionate Prince Harry said: “What our job is, especially throughout these conversations, is to get people to listen to the experts and for them to explain how what’s happening in the online world is affecting the world.

He added: “It is not restricted to certain platforms or certain social media conversations.

“This is a global crisis: a global crisis of hate, a global crisis of misinformation and a global health crisis.”

The Duke also touched on connecting the dots between the issues he and Meghan hope to address including female empowerment, mental health and the environment.

Language expert and author Judi James analysed Harry’s latest speech for and claimed the “runaway royal” seemed “defensive.”

Judi said: “When he says ‘What our job is’ – Harry pins personal role definition right up front here, suggesting hints of a defensive approach about the Sussex brand.

“The couple have been talking as experts recently and Harry has been criticised for his lecturing tone.”

Judi added: “He seems keen to explain their role as one of hosting experts rather than speaking as one.

“‘-especially through these conversations’ – Although he adds what sounds like a caveat.

“This hints that role might be fluid or changeable.”

Judi claims Harry’s use of rhetoric suggests he may have received “coaching.”

The expert said: “‘This is a global crisis: a global crisis of hate, a global crisis of misinformation and a global health crisis.” – Harry uses the very classic cluster of three points method here, suggesting he has been studying or being coached in the art of powerful rhetoric.

“His words are as emphatic as possible, shoving the words ‘global’ and ‘crisis’ together and then repeating them three times in a technique that has been historically proven to create agreement and even applause during political rallies and speeches.”

According to Judi, Harry’s “urgent” desire to effect change comes across in his “fidgety” body language.

She said: “The style of Harry’s delivery suggests he is full of keenness and enthusiasm to take a very challenging and high-profile approach to their causes, maybe seeing his role as a run-away royal as the man who can use his brand to fight urgently.

The expert compared Harry’s use of language to that of teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Judi added: “Personally and emotionally in the kind of energetic campaigning style we see from the likes of Greta Thunberg.

“This sense of urgency to get out there making change also shows in Harry’s body language during some of these interviews.

“He looks fidgety and distracted when he is not speaking, like a man who prefers to get on with the fight to sitting indoors discussing things.”
