Prince Harry has come under scrutiny for his recent speech at the Invictus Games closing ceremony in which he attempted to sound like a “pathetic victim.”
Harry, Duke of Sussex, advised participants in the games, held in Germany, not to let their past or pain define their future, instead offering words of encouragement.
Sharing her thoughts on his speech, royal commentator Kinsey Schofield expressed disappointment in Harry’s recent statements and actions, stating that the public expects more from a figure of his stature.
She talked about how Harry shifted into his “victim mode,” although she could have talked about how he used the opportunities he was given to overcome adversity and difficulties in his life.
Schofield argued that, especially after the loss of his mother, Princess Diana, the public craves a message of “resilience and personal growth” from Harry.
She told Sky News Australia: “What people want from him is for him to say, ‘I’ve come out the other side. I’m fine, better and stronger.’
“Instead, he wants to take us back to this sad and pathetic place and we expect more from him,” the expert criticized Harry.
