TV Host David Campbell Sticks Up For Prince Harry After Lady Colin Campbell Launches Petition To Revoke His Royal Titles
Prince Harry has at least one person in his corner: TV personality David Campbell.
The journalist stuck up for the red-headed royal, 36, after a petition was launched to remove his royal titles.
"It's gained more than 45,000 signatures. It's burning up! The move is being led by socialite Lady Colin Campbell ... and says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should stop damaging the institution of the monarchy," he said. "Here we go again."
Campbell has previously defended Harry — especially after he aired out his dirty laundry in the new AppleTV+ series The Me You Can't See.
"It's a shame that Prince Harry's whingeing really has clouded a lot of this documentary, this podcast," journalist Natalie Oliveri said.
"Is he whingeing?" Campbell asked. "He's telling his story. I don't see that as whingeing."
Lady Colin Campbell started the petition after Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, repeatedly spoke badly about the royal family.
“As a purely private citizen, with no royal rank, style or title, he [Harry] will be able to indulge his personal beliefs, as is the right of all private citizens, without the consequential possibility of damaging the institution of the Monarchy or relations between Friendly Powers, and will be free to articulate beliefs, no matter how objectionable, without the fallout that is otherwise inevitable as long as he possesses royal status,” the petition description reads.
"I started it [the petition] because I think it’s the right thing to do," Campbell stated. “I have spoken to people, many people, who think it’s the right thing to do and it is the solution."
"It is the best solution because it frees Harry to be able to indulge himself without consequence and without doing damage to the institution of the monarchy of the British nation, the British people and himself,” she added.

Piers Morgan also wants Harry and Meghan to face some consequences for their actions.
"I think they should be stripped of their titles because they’re trashing the institution and causing a lot of damage in the Commonwealth where a lot of the countries are believing this racism crap," the TV star said. “They’ve become the world’s biggest victims in the middle of a pandemic. It’s pathetic. Harry needs to grow up."
