JAN MOIR: How shameless! The person the Queen needs protection from is Prince Harry himself.

America woke up to a new game of Thrones this morning like prince harry outlined an unlikely role for himself as Mighty Queen Protector, Defender of Her Realm.

From over 5,000 miles away, he’s suddenly in charge? How does it work?

everyone knows the person the Queen The one most in need of protection is Harry himself, the man who has single-handedly done the most damage to the British monarchy since Oliver Cromwell.

This includes indirectly criticizing her as a bad mother, smearing her family as racist, and suing her government over security issues.

Yet here he is, as nice as a sour cream pie, the grinning assassin in a polo shirt, assuring millions of viewers on American television of his vital role at Her Majesty’s side, which is news to everyone on Blighty.

The shame of it all! Just panting.

The Prince was appearing in a special interview on NBC’s breakfast show with its host Hoda Kotb, who had flown to The Hague to meet him at the Invcitus Games.

The two sat on folding chairs at an archery range, with three targets visible behind them. Should we read something about this intriguing choice of location? Maybe we were supposed to imagine pictures of Charles, Camilla and William on the dartboards. Or is that too triggering?

Certainly, Kotb had plenty of soft shots in his quiver of questions. Do you feel at peace? How is a Wednesday for you? What do you like about fatherhood? Does Archie have your sassy thing? Harry responded enthusiastically, waving his arms to emphasize his point, and the emptier his point, the bigger the marks on his arm.

This is a new communication development for the Prince, who sometimes spouted New Age nonsense that seemed like he was in command of a jet or conducting an invisible orchestra of absurdity.

“Chuckiness is something that keeps you alive,” he said at one point, which is not just an emotional quagmire but also the kind of thing only someone used to being listened to without interruption or criticism says.

The most awkward moment came when Kotb asked her if she missed Prince Charles and Prince William. Harry’s face was as expressionless as a sponge as he explained that his focus ‘right now’ was on the Invictus Games and later it would be on his own children.

“They’re two little people, you know,” he added, gently explaining what a child is to the NBC audience, some of whom may not be sure.

Prince Harry said that sometimes he feels

Prince Harry said that sometimes he feels “hugely at peace” but other times he is too worried about the world to be happy.

Pause there for a second. The fact that Prince Harry couldn’t find it in his heart to simply say yes, that he missed his brother and his father, is surely indicative of the totally toxic state of their relationship. And for someone who claims to find ‘healing by helping others’, he sure knows how to hurt.

Clearly, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are only happy talking to these famous hosts from America, whose collective attitude, towards Harry in particular, seems little short of idolatry.

First Oprah, then Ellen, and now Hoda, who once said that interviewing Beyoncé was the highlight of her celebrity career. This time there was no Meghan present to hold Harry’s hand and egg in her bubbling omelette of grievances, which was a shame. Her very absence, however, added a frisson of excitement to the proceedings, because there was always the chance that she’d come running in from stage left in a £17,000 top and say something mean about Kate’s Easter decorations or choice of dress. the tights.

But in this 12-minute slot, broadcast Wednesday morning between articles about Bridgerton’s success in the US and the local mask mandate, there was only time for Harry. And he wasted no time, the sole of his desert boot pressing down hard on the foot pump of fable as it inflated his status within the Royal Family into the realm of myth.

Because it revealed that he was not only the queen’s protector, but also the court jester and royal confidant.

“We have a really special relationship, we talk about things that she can’t talk about with anyone else,” he said of his meeting in Windsor with his grandmother.

What the hell could the Queen talk to Harry about that she can’t talk to anyone else? I’ve been racking my brains. Rescue chickens? naked billiards? She Brought some crystals from the Montecito New Age Store and tried to realign the actual chakras?

Perhaps he made her take that weird deep breath she does every time she arrives in London, to help her cope with her grief over the loss of Prince Philip.

Or by claiming this special relationship, maybe he was just getting back at his older brother for all those times he was excluded from the regular Kingcraft sessions William had with the Queen when they were kids.

We return to Game of Thrones. Here is the war and the old wounds between the replacement and the heir. Winter is coming and something in their brotherly bond seems to have been broken forever.

There were the usual light lectures on mental health issues. “What I do know is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for absolutely everyone,” Harry said. This is obviously not true, but perhaps it is something a man with a financial stake in a company that sells mental health packages should believe.

His own state of mind? He revealed that he sometimes feels ‘greatly at peace’ but cares too much about the world to be happy; Like all millennials, even the rich and royalty, he can never stop being a victim.

‘My mantra now every day, and it’s dangerous because I need to make sure I don’t have burnout, but it’s trying to make the world a better place for my children, otherwise what’s the point of bringing children into this world? ‘ she moaned.

His savior complex blooms like a virulence, but should anyone listen to a man who can’t even make the world better for his own father and father-in-law?

Prince Harry did not say in the interview if he misses his father and brother.

Naturally, he played his ace, Diana’s card. Americans still can’t get enough of Princess Diana, and being her child has conferred a kind of heroic status on Harry. He unfolds this with the experience of the skilled California PR man that he has become.

Yes, there are photos of grandmother Diana in the house, she revealed. And in response to a question, he told Kotb and NBC that he felt like she had been watching him “for the last two years.”

Somehow, he didn’t seem to mind this investigation into his feelings about his dead mother, because it’s not an invasion of privacy when it comes to a marketing opportunity, is it?

Once again, Prince Harry has managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The response in the UK to the interview has overshadowed all the good work he has done this week with the Invictus games; however, the truth is becoming too clear.

Prince Harry doesn’t care what anyone else in the UK thinks. He doesn’t care that the Palace is shocked by his last words, that the royal aides are stunned, that the UK broadcasters are furious, that the British newspapers are writing about his arrogance and misplaced vanity, that his brother and father they must be crushed by their words. .

That’s all rhubarb, rhubarb on its way to glory in America. Because his fortune and his future now depend on what Americans think of him, not what grumbling Brits at home complain about.

He’s focused on promoting himself on television from coast to coast, doing deals and producing content for Netflix and others that has monetary value, while convincing himself he’s doing it right at the same time.

This is why he continues to manipulate his relationship with the Queen and the Royal Family, using it as a golden emollient to grease his way to celebrity. She is giving everything she has, because it is all she has. And Americans are enjoying it.
