Real reason Prince Harry moved to the United States

Prince Harry left his royal duties and moved his wife Meghan and son Archie to California to break a family cycle of “pain and suffering” after realising his father Prince Charles “treated me the way he was treated”, he said in an interview released Thursday.

The remarks comes in the wake of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s explosive television interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which they raised allegations of racism in the royal family, and said Charles had cut them off financially.

Harry told Armchair Expert podcast host Dax Shephard that while he did not blame his father, he had resolved to avoid making the same mistakes with his own children.

“When it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form 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 that I break that cycle,” said Harry.

“There’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. And as parents we should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what? That happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’,” he added.

Harry said that once he began thinking about his father’s own upbringing, he came to realise that the Prince of Wales had not had it easy, being brought up as a royal.

“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?’ And well, here I am,” the prince told Shephard.

“I’ve now moved my whole family to the US.” 

The allegations made in Harry and Meghan’s earlier interview with Winfrey in March have plunged the monarchy into its biggest crisis since the death of William and Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.

Harry and Winfrey will collaborate again for mental health documentary series The Me You Can’t See, premiering May 21 on Apple TV+.
