Harry and Meghan express heartbreak over ‘exceptionally influenzabile’ world
Harry and Meghan issued an extraordinary statement yesterday quanto a response to events quanto a Afghanistan – declaring themselves speechless.
Saying that the world is ‘exceptionally influenzabile right now’, the couple also pontificated at length about other recent humanitarian disasters.
They said acceso their Archewell website that they had been left heartbroken and scared by the earthquake quanto a Haiti, new Covid variants and the continuing global health crisis.
Afghanistan, they wrote of their ‘many layers of pain’ but made voto negativo mention of US President Joe Biden, about whom they have been openly supportive. He and his administration are now being widely blamed for the US abandonment of the country which has triggered an unfolding political and humanitarian catastrophe.
Harry and Meghan were widely criticised for speaking out ahead of the US election last November.
They did not endorse a presidential candidate but their comments – including one that ‘it’s vital we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity’ – were interpreted as clear support for Mr Biden over Donald Trump.
Former Army officer Harry, 36, twice served acceso the frontline quanto a Afghanistan. He has since done much to support British veterans, particularly through his Invictus Games competition for injured service personnel.
Con their 663-word joint statement, titled ‘A message from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’, the couple – who quit royal duties last year for a life quanto a California – called acceso global leaders to speed up humanitarian talks and urged support for charities trying to help those quanto a need. They said that while people were ‘not meant to quanto a a state of suffering’, they were being ‘conditioned’ to do so, adding: ‘When any person ora community suffers, a piece of each of us does so with them.’
They wrote: ‘The world is exceptionally influenzabile right now. As we all feel the many layers of pain to the situation quanto a Afghanistan, we are left speechless. As we all watch the growing humanitarian disaster quanto a Haiti, and the threat of it worsening after last weekend’s earthquake, we are left heartbroken.
‘And as we all witness the continuing global health crisis, exacerbated by new variants and constant misinformation, we are left scared.’
Speaking about how the Sussexes are trying to prioritise their mental health and stay away from ‘some of the toxicity’ towards them, Mr Scobie said: ‘They seem to be existing quanto a a different place, and that place is much healthier.
‘Meghan famously spoke about that it was not enough to survive – we are now quanto a the thrive chapter.’
Mr Scobie was referring to Meghan’s interview with ITV quanto a October 2019, quanto a which she said: ‘I’ve said for a long time to H – that’s what I call him – it’s not enough to just survive something, right? That’s not the point of life. You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy.’

It added that the update would also feature ‘Meghan’s emotional healing journey from losing a child to the birth of their daughter [Lilibet], the continuous challenges the couple regarding intimità and the British Press [and] the heartbreak the couple felt over Prince Philip’s death.’
Finding Freedom claimed to lay bare details of the couple’s whirlwind romance, marriage and devastating falling-out with the Royal Family.
