Harry ‘not the sharpest tool in the box’ and ‘undoubtedly influenced’ by ‘canny’ Meghan


PRINCE HARRY is not the “sharpest tool in the box” – but wife Meghan Markle has worked hard to “educate” him, not least when it comes to issues of race, a Royal commentator has said.

Mr Sacerdoti added: “I think the widely held sense is that Harry isn’t the sharpest tool in the box.

“We do know that Prince Harry didn’t have the most stellar school career and I think that on evidence like that, we can say that he might not be the most academically intelligent person.”

The Prince had got 11 GCSEs and two A Levels, a B in Art and a D in geography, Mr Sacerdoti pointed out.

He said: “Those aren’t the best A level results in the world but on the other hand, many people don’t get that far in school.”

“Thinking about Meghan, she does indeed seem to be someone with at least a good mind for strategy in terms of their careers and reputation.

“In terms of street smarts, she seems to have done pretty well.”

Mr Sacerdoti said: “She probably has something of an influence on him.

“And that may be because in certain respects she might be more canny or intelligent, but I don’t think Prince Harry is anyone’s fool in terms of not knowing what’s going on here. I think he knows what he’s doing.”

“Harry‘s decision to join the conversation when it comes to the important issues facing the world was misguided, Mr Sacerdoti suggested, even if the topics he chose might be laudable.”

He said: “As with all of this, I think that it’s strange for us in the UK to see Prince Harry talking on political topics, which is exactly what he did at the UN.

“So standing up and giving a speech about democracy being under threat, for example.

“It’s remarkable, because we’re not used to seeing members of the Royal Family comment on matters of politics.”

When it came to democracy, there was self-evidently “nothing democratic about the Royal Family”, Mr Sacerdoti pointed out.

“I think the guy is well-known and famous and has this position whether he likes it or not.

“And as such, he wants to use it for good ends, and I think promoting democracy is certainly a good end.”
