Harry and Meghan ‘concerned’ about Archie & Lilibet being ‘digital experiments’
Prince Harry and Meghan have revealed they are “concerned” about Archie and Lilibet being “digital experiments” in a “world of hatred and harm”.
It came as the Duke of Sussex today helped to launch an “online safety toolkit” for children.
Harry spoke at the online event titled Making Child Online Safety a Reality with young people around the world – and shared his fears in regard to his kids.
The Duke told those tuned in that he hopes 18-month-old Lilbet and Archie, three, will “never have to experience the internet as it exists now.”
The dad-of-two explained: “As parents, my wife and I are concerned about the next generation growing up in a world where they are treated as digital experiments for companies to make money and where things like hatred and harm are somehow normalized. ”
It is not known whether Harry received a fee for his appearance, but experts have previously said they could be earning upwards of a million pounds per speech after they signed up with an elite agency.
He and Meghan last year joined New York-based Harry Walker Agency – the same as their pal Serena Williams and the Obamas to help fund their new luxury lifestyle.
PR expert Mark Borkowski told The Sun the pair will “clean up”.
He said: “I’m surprised they haven’t done this sooner. It will be one of the great income generators for them.
“The speaker’s circuit is a natural safe space for them to plunder.”
