Being a member of Britain’s Royal Family and one of the most famous people on the planet certainly comes with its perks, but privacy is not among them.
In a recent interview with BBC to mark today’s opening of the Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida, Prince Harry bemoans the “incessant”; intrusions into his private life.
“Everyone has a right to privacy,”; the prince tells interviewer Andrew Marr, reports BBC News.
Maintaining that privacy, however, is fraught with difficulties when you’re as famous as he is.
“Sadly that line between public and private life is almost non-existent any more,”; he says, adding: “We will continue to do our best to ensure that there is the line.”;
However, Harry insists that he’s not complaining, pointing out that he and the rest of the Royal Family are “completely aware that we are in a very privileged position.”;
He adds: “I will spend the rest of my life earning that privilege and trying to bring a spotlight on to things and causes that really matter to me, and hopefully matter to other people as well.”;
He does, however, believe that even the most privileged people still deserve to maintain some semblance of a private life.
“Everyone has a right to their privacy, and a lot of the members of the public get it, but sadly in some areas there is this incessant need to find out every little bit of detail about what goes on behind the scenes,”; he says. “It’s unnecessary.”;
One of the perks of privilege is being able to use his fame to draw attention to things he’s passionate about, such as the Invictus Games. Check out this video of Prince Harry in Toronto to launch the official countdown to the 2017 games in Toronto:
