Just name him Dotty Harry.
Clearly not content material with his first strike two months in the past — he and saucer-eyed, self-pitying spouse Meghan whining to Oprah in a prime-time particular — Harry is back again guilty his father, brother, and grandmother, the newly widowed Queen, for all that ails him, this 36-year-old globally well-known multimillionaire.
It’s Harry’s criticism, and we’re by no means going to listen to the top of it.
In his new Apple TV+ particular “The Me You Can’t See” — actually, Harry, haven’t we seen all of it? — the beleaguered prince sits reverse his new BFF Oprah, lecturing us on mental health.
Really, he’s been via it. Consider this: “Every time I put a suit and tie on,” Harry tells us, “I was in a fight-or-flight mode.”
I’ve stated it earlier than, however it bears repeating: This is a supremely unhealthy search for the COVID period. Who is advising these folks?
“Making this move was really scary,” Harry goes on. “Like every possible opportunity the forces that were working against us, trying to make it impossible.”
It was solely, like, a 12 months and a half in the past that Harry and Meghan flounced out of Buckingham Palace, huffing their grievances all the way in which to a $14 million Montecito mansion regardless of the royal household’s blessing. We do recall.
Yet on this Apple TV+ sequence, Harry claims that his critics — by which he means the tabloid press who he believes exploited and killed his mom — should be psychotically broken to search out fault with him.
Who’s commodifying Diana now?
But by all means, Harry, please preserve speaking — out of either side of your mouth, as is your wont, begging for privateness from the media whereas turning into an energetic participant within the media.
Harkles, thy identify is hypocrisy.
So Harry’s again to share extra particulars of how horrible a father Prince Charles was, bequeathing him “genetic pain,” and the way his total household cared nothing for his unhappiness, not to mention his future spouse’s — regardless of fast-tracking Meghan into the fold and throwing a $45 million wedding ceremony.
Most shockingly, Harry provides extra particulars about Meghan’s suicidal ideations whereas pregnant with Archie — with no thought to how this can absolutely have an effect on his son.
Yet Harry tells us that 4 years of counseling has made him all higher! Harry is therapized, Americanized and able to go, turning into one in every of our specialties — a self-help guru who’s actually solely in it to sate his narcissism.
America, strap yourselves into this suggestions loop. We’re in it for now, regardless that Harry hasn’t realized that self-pity actually isn’t within the American DNA. Unlike a bit factor referred to as the First Amendment, one in every of our most valued protections — which Harry final week referred to as “bonkers” and one thing “I don’t understand.”
It’s the exact same factor that enables him to, you recognize, smack discuss the Queen and two future kings of England on digicam with Oprah like two gals gossiping over cocktails.
Anyway, “the only way to break out and to free yourself,” Harry says, “is to tell the truth.”
Psychobabble, phrase salad, gobbledygook and Greek to me: It’s all on show, with Harry blissfully unaware that every public overshare diminishes his worth on the open market.
We are watching an overgrown youngster throw an epic tantrum, and the purpose is unclear. Does Harry wish to deliver down the royal household? Prove he has one thing price contributing? Does he even know what he needs?
One factor is obvious: He’s profoundly tone deaf, and a course correction appears unlikely. Even Harry must admit the royals did one factor properly: Their rigorously crafted picture of Harry — army man, good with children, the lighthearted prince with a charitable soul — was far superior to this one.
