Prince Harry spoke at the U.N. about Nelson Mandela Day — and apparently, he had a motive behind his New York City visit.
"He does it because he needs a profile, that's the only way they can get money by showing the profile and for Netflix," author Tom Bower said. "Everything is built around the future documentary series to promote the Sussexes."
While speaking, he touched on some world issues, including climate change, even though he frequently takes private jets.
"Well it was pretty empty the auditorium wasn't it," Bower shared. "The UN is quite famous for being a center of hot air. What was unbelievable was Mandela's legacy was really betrayed by the South Africans and South Africa could have been a completely different country if Mandela had been able to live a few more years. I just thought he really skitted over all the problems of Africa and the self-inflicted problems when he just lives in luxury in Montecito."
Meghan McCain was also quick to criticize the prince, 37.
"According to Prince Harry, counted among the worst catastrophes plaguing the world right now are the coronavirus pandemic, climate change, lies and disinformation, the war in Ukraine and… the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe versus Wade," the TV personality wrote in an op-ed, which was published by the Daily Mail.
"The speech was confusing and wildly insulting to the undoubtably few Americans, who may have been watching. It is hard for me to understand why anyone should care what the Duke of Sussex thinks – let alone what he thinks about America," the mom-one-continued. "He has lived here all of 20 minutes, yet he has decided that makes him an expert. Being a Duke (or a Duchess for that matter) means next to nothing in America. It confers nothing other than superficial celebrity clout and social media clicks."
