Prince Harry is once again interfering in American politics.

On Monday, he gave a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York on the occasion of Nelson Mandela Day.

“A few spread misinformation and lies, and it goes beyond the majority,” Prince Harry said from the famous lectern in the middle of Manhattan and continued:

“From the terrible war in Ukraine to the rollback of constitutional rights here in the United States. It is a global attack on democracy and freedom. The meaning of Mandela’s life, “said Prince Harry.

And it is precisely these words that are now causing the British media to lift the index finger.

For Prince Harry alludes to the U.S. Supreme Court’s overthrow of Roe vs. The Wade ruling, which from 1973-2022 guaranteed all American women the right to free abortion. But it’s over now and in a number of states, abortion is no longer an option.

It is certainly not the first time that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have interfered in the abortion debate in the United States. The other day, Duchess Meghan also told Vogue that her husband, Prince Harry, is a feminist and that he was shaken by the Supreme Court’s decision.

Now it is up to the individual states in the United States whether women have access to free abortion. In states like New York and California, there is unchanged access, while abortion has become illegal in e.g. Texas, Alabama and Arkansas as well as a number of other states.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been criticized several times for having too many attitudes. Members of the British royal house, as you know, prefer to say as little as possible.

But after the Prince and Duchess said goodbye to the Royal House and life in Britain, they have gradually become icons on the American left.

It has led the American right wing to call Duchess Meghan ‘the duchess of woke’.
