Prince Harry delivered a concerning speech as he addressed the UN General Assembly on Monday.
Marking Nelson Mandela Day, the Duke of Sussex stood before the United Nations assembly in New York City and talked about world issues such as Covid-19, hunger, racism, the war in Ukraine, and the rising divide between the poor and the rich.
“How many of us feel battered, helpless, in the face of a seemingly endless stream of disasters and devastation. I understand, this has been a painful year in a painful decade,” Harry said.
“We’re living through a pandemic that continues to ravage communities in every corner on the globe; climate change wreaking havoc on our planet, with the most vulnerable suffering most of all; the few weaponizing lies and disinformation against the many; and from the horrific war in Ukraine to the rolling back of constitutional rights here in the United States, we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the calls of Mandela’s life.
The 37-year-old, who lives in a $20 million Montecito home together with Meghan Markle and their children, went on to suggest climate change has set the world on fire as he insisted the crisis will only worsen unless the leaders start leading.
The young prince also ripped into the United States politics as he blasted the overturning of the Roe v Wade case and said constitutional rights have been rolled back.
“It has been more than a decade since Mandela’s walk finally reached its end. But what he taught us again and again was that it was never his walk alone – it was all of ours. And what a beautiful gift, especially as a dad of two young children myself,” he added toward the end of his speech.
“That this world is meant to be shared, That the work of each generation is tied to who came before and who came after us. That we have an obligation to give as much, if not more, than we take.”
