Prince Harry backed in the US despite criticism in UK: ‘Man of heart’


PRINCE HARRY and other royals are seen in the same way as any other celebrity, journalist Sandro Monetti tells

He also explained how Americans see members of the Royal Family like “any other celebrity”.

Mr Monetti said: “I think Harry is seen almost as a man of heart in the US, as someone trying to find his place in the world.

“When members of the Royal Family come here they are just seen as another celebrity, there’s the fascination with wealth and power. Americanis an aspirational country and is interested in wealth and power, so that’s why they are fascinated by the royals.”

OnePoll UK carried out a survey of 2001 adults in the US to ask them about their view of Meghan after a recent interview she did and the release of her podcast episodes on Spotify, and found that many people like her. Of those polled, around 40 per cent said they thought “more favourably of her,” and a further 30 per cent said they thought “much more favourably.”

Only 10 percent said they had a less favourable view of her and around 20 percent said they felt no different.

Mr Monetti fears, however, that Harry and Meghan’s hopes of mending relations with the Royal Family could be undone by the release of the Duke’s memoir.

The journalist added: “My big worry is the Harry book. You don’t get an advance as big as that unless there’s going to be some negativity in it, that’s just the way publishing and the media works.

“Harry should pulp all those copies of the book and abandon the project. I know it has been delayed but I don’t see how shortly after the death of the Queen and ahead of his father’s coronation it helps.

“All of us come from families that have internal arguments. I am just one of those people who feels it can be better solved through communication.”

It was reported recently that Harry has delayed the release of the book. The Telegraph quoted a source who said the plan to publish the book in late 2022 now won’t happen.
