The 36-year-old British Prince Harry is no new to controversy since there has been a lot of things surrounding him since his early days. However, after marrying Meghan Markle, a Hollywood actress, in 2018, he gained even more prominence. It was a “fairy-tale wedding”. Meghan Markle had previously been married to Trevor Engelson, whom she divorced in 2013, thus the wedding was already fraught with controversy.
In March 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved out from the royal palace, leaving behind all their royal titles, to a mansion in Los Angeles, California. They are believed to have terminated relationships with the British Royal Family since then.

Prince Harry and his podcast with Dax Shephard summary
Recently, Prince Harry gave a podcast to Dax Shephard and he revealed some more things regarding his life. He tells Armchair Expert that his life, “It’s a mix between The Truman Show and living in a zoo. The biggest issue for me was that being born into it, you inherit the risk. You inherit every element of it without a choice and because of the way UK media are, they feel an ownership over you.”
About leaving the royal family and his father, Prince Charles, he says,
“There is no blame. I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly 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 has suffered. I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, actually.”Prince Harry
Thinking of his son, Archie, he further adds,
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents 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.Prince Harry
Prince Harry also disclosed things related to Megan
He acknowledges that he has really not desired to be a royal since he was in his twenties and that his mental health was failing, as a result of living with the family and being constantly monitored by the media. However, after marrying, his wife Meghan Markle persuaded him to go to treatment. And since then, the bubble has been burst and things have changed for him.
He also discloses some of his pre-marriage interactions with Meghan Markle. He stated that he and Meghan used to disguise themselves in public to meet. To avoid the paparazzi, he wore a baseball hat or a headcover. They once met in a supermarket disguised and they were texting each other from very different ends.
The 36-year-old Prince also tells how the paparazzi have made him feel helpless 3 times in his life. Once when he was a child and was in a car with his mom, Princess Diana. The second was in Afghanistan when he rode a helicopter, and the third time was with his wife, Meghan.
Harry also talks about his wife and says,
“My wife had the most amazing explanation. You don’t need to be a princess, you can create a life that will be better than any princess.”Prince Harry
Reactions to Prince Harry’s Poadcast
After moving to LA, the royal couple has signed deals with Spotify and Netflix, worth 100 Million Euros. So that they can pursue their new lifestyle.
Back in 2012, Prince Harry and other girls were caught nude in Las Vegas. On this, he said, “You are constantly looking for other people to balance out your own behavior, right? It’s relatable.”
However, the royal biographer Angela Levin, slams and tweets saying
“Harry’s a victim again on Dax Shephard’s podcast. Reveals he and Meg pretended not to know each other in a supermarket and that although he was born into privilege now believed ‘you may start in one place but you can change in time’. So his 16-bathroom home isn’t a privilege.”Angela Levin
