The interview turned out to be making headlines as Prince Harry spilled the tea about his exit, his thoughts about the Netflix series ‘The Crown’, and the gift that the queen sent for Archie on Christmas.
While talking about “stepping away” from the Royals in the UK and moving to Los Angeles, Prince Harry told Corden, “It was a really difficult environment as I think a lot of people saw.” He elaborated, “We know what the British press can be like and it was destroying my mental health. I was like, ‘This is toxic’. So I did what any husband or any father would do which is ‘I need to get my family out of here’. But we never walked away.”
James Corden been friends with Harry for a long time and that led to Prince Harry being frank about his personal life.
Prince Harry on The Crown
The Netflix’s series The Crown has made quit a buzz recently with the royal secrets unfolding infront of the public, which has affected the family. Touching the topic, James asked Harry about his thoughts on the depiction of the royal family, and Harry was quick to state that the show does “not pretend to be news.”
He added that although it is fictional, it is, in fact, based on the truth. “It’s fictional but it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it is not strictly accurate. It gives you a rough idea about that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting of duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that. I am way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family or my wife or myself because the difference is – that is obviously fiction, take it how you will, but this is being reported as facts because you are supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.”
When asked which actor would he like to see play his role on the show, Harry said Damien Lewis.
During the relaxed chat, Prince Harry also revealed that he had Zoomed with the Queen and Prince Philip so that they could see their great-grandson Archie, and that the Queen had sent Archie a waffle maker for Christmas.
Harry also described evenings at their Santa Barbara home.
“Depending on how the day’s been and how busy it’s been, we do Archie’s tea, give him a bath, read him a book, put him down, go downstairs.
“Meg might cook a meal, might order a takeaway, go upstairs sit in bed, turn the TV on, watch some Jeopardy, maybe watch a little bit of Netflix,” the prince said.
Meghan Markle who is pregnant with the second child also made a special appearance on the show when James had a video chat with her via Harry’s phone.
