Prince Harry

I watched the Anderson Cooper interview with Prince Harry on 60 Minutes tonight.

One might think that Harry has every reason to be a ridiculously happy person - he's young, healthy, as rich as Croesus, happily married with children, and living in Montecito.

But instead he seems a pretty disturbed person, unable or unwilling to let go of the past, or of the toxic relationship with his British family. On one hand he seems sad, but also too self-absorbed.

I find myself wanting to say to him .... I don't think you can have things both ways, so stop obsessing and choose a lane. If you still long to be special and royal and part of "The Firm" then go back and do your job. But if you do want to be accepted as a normal person, then just move on (and we don't have royalty in the US so stop using your titles).

For a prince he seems like pretty much of a drama queen. Not sure what to think of Megan. She knows how to be an influencer, but seems not to know how to play well with others.
I agree with you they just need to choose a lane and get on with life.

It seems like being raised in the royal family isn't good training for being a happy balanced person.

The title of his book reveals how he feels about himself, "Spare". As in "an heir and a spare". Which is unfortunate. I have two sons, I never thought of either of them as a spare, or for that matter, an heir. I doubt if his parents did either ( especially Diana). I guess being a royal makes you think of it that way, though.

I remember that from medieval history classes - an heir and a spare. If you are born into a monarchy family, it seems that everything would be structured around the succession, where you are in line, what property and money come with your titles, and what your duties are. In the interview, Anderson Cooper asked him why he and his wife (and children) didn't just give up their titles and be free of it all, and he was like Noooooo!
