In the midst of Harry’s decision to step down from the royal family, the Duke of Sussex has “suffered a lot”, said a close friend.
Nacho Figueras, during a televised ABC News Special said “He’s being a father”. He also said that Harry was a guy trying to protect his cub(son) and his lioness(wife) from whatever it takes.
He continued, “He has suffered a lot from all of the things that have happened to him. He suffers a lot from people judging him.”
Harry and Meghan declared their stepping down from the Royal family earlier this month.
He cited that they want to “carve out a progressive new role within [the royal] institution” and “work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”
The Sussex Royal also states : “We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”
