The Duke of Sussex has expressed his ambitions for a ‘better world’ for his children to grow up in at the Invictus Games this weekend, and his comments were torn apart by a historian who called Harry’s hopes a ‘loose and spacious talk “.
Speaking at the Invictus Games in The Hague, the Duke of Sussex, 37, said he would ‘never, ever rest’ until he made the world a better place for his children Archie and Lilibet.
He added: “Because it is our responsibility that the world be as it is now. I don’t think we should be bringing children into the world unless we have a commitment to make it a better place for them.”
Author, journalist and historian Alexander Larman says the Duke “seemed unable to confine himself to the matter at hand” in the interview.
In a post for the Viewer, Mr Larman wrote: ‘While Meghan confined herself to the bland, PR-friendly statement that she loved being with children at games because she missed her own children, her husband seemed unable to limit himself to the material at hand.
“With all his cowardly and specious rhetoric about ‘future theft’, the Duke seemed to suggest that there should be some kind of reckoning for those irresponsible enough to reproduce unless the world is changed beyond- imminently beyond recognition.”
