Harry and I see the world so similarly in our approach of being very hands-on with things.
They cannot escape the goldfish bowl they grew up in, and only they can truly understand what’s it really like to be raised that way, that’s why all the cousins – not just Eugenie and Harry – have been very close. There may have been troubles within the family over the years, but they’ve managed to overcome them. And Eugenie has, in many ways, tried to keep those lines of communication open for the family. No one has visited Harry since his departure. And I think that was a very public message of her support.
. I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry.
I feel really let down. He’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. And Archie (Harry and Meghan’s son) is his grandson. I will always love him, but there is a lot of hurt that has happened.
Harry Reid? I think he should go back and start working out again with his rubber work-out pieces.
