Prince Harry is a lost soul who thinks he’s a modern-day Mandela – but he’s not fit to sew his brightly coloured shirt


WHEN I first heard Prince Harry was making a speech to honour Nelson Mandela Day, my first, and indeed only, thought was this: why?

Of all the eight billion people on Planet Earth, is there anyone less qualified to invoke the memory of one of the greatest men in history?

Mandela was fiercely intelligent, remarkably resilient, astoundingly courageous, devoted to his family and country, genuinely humble, highly principled, incredibly inspiring, and lit up any room he entered with a smile that warmed the world.

Prince Harry, by contrast, is as dumb as a rock, breathtakingly arrogant, woefully hypocritical, deserted his family and country, is a permanently miserable whiny mood-hoover, doesn’t inspire me to open a crisp packet, and wouldn’t understand a principle if it slapped him round his haughty woke-ravaged chops.

It takes a special kind of brazen brass neck to stand up at the United Nations in New York, as he did today, and lecture the world about climate change when you constantly use luxury gas-guzzling private jets like a taxi service.

As Mandela’s grandson Ndaba told me in an exclusive interview for tonight’s Piers Morgan Uncensored, Harry should practice what he preaches just as Nelson always did to such powerful effect.

‘Every year we have the World Economic Forum,’ Ndaba said, ‘and you have all these heads of state coming in on their private jets, talking about climate change and yet they can easily do regional travel!

‘I think it’s time we hold our leaders accountable and really put their money where their mouth is and say if they truly believed in climate change, whether it be Prince Harry or a head of state… they have to lead by example.’ 

But  Prince Harry can’t do that because his whole life since meeting the equally disingenuous and virtue-signalling Meghan Markle, whose manipulative, controlling and cynically social-climbing streak is so comprehensively exposed in Tom Bower’s new book ‘Revenge’, has become a ridiculously two-faced sham.

There’s nothing he loves more, in his new capacity as renegade duty-devoid runaway royal, than getting up on his public preaching pulpit in front of the media he despises, but uses for constant self-promotion, to tell us how we should do the complete opposite to what he does.

But never has he quite plunged the laughable depths he did today when using Nelson Mandela’s name 20 times in one short speech to basically compare their lives as if they were in any way comparable given that Mandela spent 27 years incarcerated in a 6ft-by-6ft prison cell before becoming South Africa’s first black president.

Wanging on in that dreary humourless monotone voice about what a ‘painful’ year it’s been, Harry beseeched: ‘How many of us feel battered, helpless, in the face of a seemingly endless stream of disasters and devastation?’

Then he paused and added for full dramatic effect: ‘I understand.’

DO you, Your Royal Highness?

I don’t think you have any understanding of what real suffering is, or what it really means to be a victim.

You live in an $11 million mansion in California, from where you and your wife trash your families on TV, and ruthlessly exploit your royal titles – given to you by the institution you say is cruel and racist – for tens of millions of dollars.

Invoking Mandela’s prison description of hope as ‘like a lifebelt is to a swimmer’, the deluded Duke said: ‘Let’s be honest, how many of us are in danger of losing those lifebelts right now?’


You have to laugh, as, I’m sure, would Nelson Mandela himself who I met in 2003 in London when there was another war raging (Iraq) and another killer virus wreaking havoc (HIV), and whose passion was only matched by his great sense of humour.
