Prince Harry at the United Nations
Royal fans learn about Prince William’s ‘obligations’ in his UN speech
This performance must have put drops of sweat on his forehead. Prince Harry had the honor of addressing the United Nations in New York on July 18, 2022 to mark Nelson Mandela International Day. His fiery lecture impressed – but Royal fans have apparently discovered borrowings from a speech by Prince William.
Prince Harry, 37, was he inspired by his older brother? This impression apparently emerged among various observers who listened to his statements before the UN General Assembly with pricked ears. After the Duke of Sussex’s appearance, comments about similarities in his speech to a speech given by Prince William, 40, in 2021 at the Church of Scotland have been piling up on social media. Malicious tongues are now claiming that he simply copied his brother while writing his lecture.
Prince Harry: his speech resonates with the words of Prince William
Above all, the emotional components seem to vibrate in unison. Harry was referring to his mother, Princess Diana, †36, who sparked his love for Africa. “It was there that I felt closest to my mother and sought comfort after her passing.” Words that apparently caused deja vu for Royal fans. In his speech last year, William also pinpointed his pain management after the heavy loss. “And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found solace and solace in the Scottish countryside.”
The brothers also approach love for their wives in relation to places of formation in a similar way. Shortly after the first date, Harry asked American actress Meghan Markle, 40, to accompany him to Botswana. It was the place “where I knew I had found a kindred spirit in my wife”. In 2021, William was also able to skillfully bridge the gap between his student second home and his sweetheart. “I first met Catherine here in Scotland 20 years ago. Needless to say, the moment you meet your bride-to-be holds a very special place in your heart.”
Royal fans smell copy fraud
Similarities that caused nastiness on Twitter. “Prince Harry just copied Prince William’s 2021 speech to the Church of Scotland […]one person complained about the replay of a video comparison of passages from the two speeches.
“Oops…they’re nothing original. William and Kate have everything you want – brains, beauty and their mark…Harry is very jealous [sic]’ commented one user on the tweet. Another critical voice noted, “I knew I’d heard that before. It’s not the first time he’s copied William.”
But it’s not just these individual passages that preoccupy shrewd observers. Harry is accused of having taken over the whole structure of his brother’s speech. “Of course he did. I bet he’ll claim he wrote it first!” exclaimed one user. Another gave Harry ‘well-meaning’ advice: ‘If you have nothing to say, don’t say anything. BUT don’t copy your brother’s speech.’
Here the brothers were still united
Allegations that should not leave the Duke of Sussex cold. The relationship with his older brother has been strained since the so-called Megxit in 2020. It cannot be assumed that he consciously wants to copy William. But the similarity in their speeches is likely based on the two royals letting their hearts speak. Maybe her mother Diana’s clever handwriting is just hidden behind it.
