Prince Harry: Media Propaganda Is Turning Society 'Racist'
Duke of Sussex slams 'bigotry' and 'bias' of UK press saying it 'drove' him from country
In the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Britain's Prince Harry has slammed the divisive nature of the mainstream media, arguing that the "bigotry" and "bias" of the press is "the source" for society's "racism."
Harry, the Duke of Sussex, told Oprah that propaganda-fueled racism "was a large part" of what "drove" him and his wife Meghan Markle to move their family away from the UK.
Asked by Oprah if the couple left Britain because of racism, the prince replied: "It was a large part of it."
Reigniting his war with the press, he then recalled a conversation he had at a Sentebale fundraiser with someone who is "friends with a lot of the editors."
"Please don't do this with the media, they will destroy your life," Harry says the unidentified person told him.
"This person is friends with a lot of the editors," Harry explained before adding that he asked the person, "what do you mean?"
"You need to understand that the UK is very bigoted," Harry says he was told.
"I stopped and said, 'the UK is not bigoted, the press is bigoted, the tabloids. Is that what you mean?'"
Harry claimed the person replied, "No, the UK is bigoted."
"I said I disagree," the prince continued.
"If the source of information is corrupt or racist or biased, then that filters out to the rest of society," Harry said.
Elsewhere in the interview, Meghan Markle also made allegations of racism.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, told Oprah that her son Archie wasn't made a prince because Buckingham Palace had "concerns" with "how dark" his skin would be because she is mixed-race and Prince Harry is white.
She described her "pain" that Royal officials denied Archie the title of prince and accused the Palace of failing to protect him by denying him 24/7 security.
When asked which Royal had made the remarks about Archie's skin color, Meghan refused to say.
To do so would be "damaging" to the person in her husband's family who raised the subject, she claimed.
She told Winfrey that it was "a pretty safe" assumption to suggest that the Royal Family member she had the conversation with was "concerned" that Archie being "too brown" was "a problem."
