Prince Harry is a celebrity in his own right. Even though he isn’t an actor or a performer, the fact that he’s a member of the royal family means he has a huge fan base. But according to the Duke of Sussex, the public’s obsession with him hasn’t also been beneficial.

Prince Harry Claims His And Meghan Markle’s Mere Existence Is A Threat?

When Prince Harry left The Firm in 2020 and relocated to the United States months later, he admitted that he thought he and his wife would be able to enjoy some peace and quiet away from it all. But this is far from what the Duke of Sussex experienced.

“I never thought we’d be away from it completely, but I did think that we would get some form of peace. That’s when I realized that, actually, our mere existence outside of that institutional control was more of a threat. And a similar thing happened to my mom, as well,” he said.

Despite the negative criticisms that he and Markle continue to receive, Prince Harry and his wife are still carrying on with their personal lives away from the British royal family.
