Prince Harry calls the First Amendment ‘bonkers’

Prince Harry has described the First Amendment as ‘bonkers’, criticizing the freedom of speech sacred to his adopted homeland.

The 36-year-old appeared on Dax Shepard’s podcast on Thursday, Armchair Expert, to discuss mental health, his family, life in Los Angeles and his future projects.

He expressed shock at how much attention he received while living at film producer Tyler Perry’s mansion in Beverly Hills, and complained of the media ‘feeding frenzy’.

‘I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,’ he said.

‘I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.

‘But, you can find a loophole in anything. 

‘You can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.’ 

The Duke of Sussex’s remarks left some Americans unimpressed.

Dan Crenshaw, a Texas congressman, said: ‘Well I just doubled the size of my Independence Day party.’

Another listener commented: ‘If he has a problem with the constitution then he can go back to Britain.’ 

And back in the UK, politician Nigel Farage remarked: ‘For Prince Harry to condemn the USA’s First Amendment shows he has lost the plot. 

‘Soon he will not be wanted on either side of the pond.’

In March Harry was given a role at international nonprofit the Aspen Institute, where he serves on Commission on Information Disorder, working on a six-month study on how inaccurate information spreads across the country.  

Harry said that he and Meghan, who are expecting their second child, moved to the millionaires’ enclave of Montecito in California to break the cycle of ‘genetic pain’.

He raised eyebrows back in Britain with a condemnation of his father Prince Charles’ parenting. Some called for the pair to lose their titles as a result.

‘He’s treated me the way that he was treated,’ he said of his father. 

‘There’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. Isn’t life about breaking the cycle? There’s no blame.

‘But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some kind of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that, perhaps, my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so I don’t pass it on.’

Referring to his father’s ‘unhappy’ time at Gordonstoun school in Scotland – which Charles described as ‘Colditz in kilts’ – Harry added: ‘Suddenly I started to piece it all together and go, OK, so this is where he went to school. 

‘This is what happened. I know this bit about his life. I also know that’s connected to his parents. So that means that he’s treated me the way that he was treated, which means how can I change that for my own kids?’

He compared life in The Firm to ‘a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo’ – a reference to the 1998 Jim Carrey film about a man who is oblivious to the fact that his entire life is a TV show.

‘I’ve seen behind the curtain,’ he added. 

‘I’ve seen the business model. I know how this operation runs… I don’t want to be part of this.’
