Prince Harry told late night talk show host James Corden he didn’t walk away from his royal duties but made the move to California to protect the mental health of his family.
“We all know what the British press can be like and it was destroying my mental health, this is toxic, so I did what any husband and father would do, I need to get my family out of here,” said Harry.
Harry and his wife, Meghan stepped away from full-time royal life early last year and last week confirmed they will not be returning to royal duties. Harry has also given up his honorary military titles.
During the segment Harry and Corden toured southern California in an open-top bus and at one point, shared a cup of tea. The British late night host also asked Harry about the series The Crown which depicts the personal lives of the Royal Family.
“It’s not strictly accurate,” Harry said, “but it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everyone else, what can come from that.”
