Now a father, Prince Harry spoke out about his fears about social networks and their impact on children. His priority, protecting his son Archie.
Away from the British Royal Family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the United States continue to champion causes that are close to their hearts.
While waiting for the launch of their Archewell Foundation, which is a little behind schedule, the couple does not hesitate to speak out publicly, particularly to question the dangers of social networks.
In a long article for the Fast Company, Prince Harry expressed his fears about the pitfalls of social networks and the possible impact they could have on children, as reported by our colleagues from Hello Magazine.
Prince Charles’ son revealed that he and Meghan Markle supported the Stop Hate For Profit campaign to encourage companies to stop running ads on social networks, including the giant Facebook. The aim was to harm the revenues of social networks that do not engage enough in combating hate speech or incitement to violence.
Building with each other
A fight that Prince Harry wants to lead to protect children but also and especially his own son, Archie, who will inevitably be confronted with social networks as a teenager. In her opening speech at the Rise Up virtual summit, Meghan Markle had also expressed her fears about social networks.
“The Internet has the power to affirm and support as much as it does harm, but we are not supposed to destroy each other; we are supposed to build each other up,” the Duchess of Sussex said. Regularly the target of negative comments on the internet, the couple knows what they are talking about and therefore calls on users to be extremely vigilant.
