Prince Harry has broken his silence on a number of topics in an extremely rare interview with US television host James Corden.
The Duke of Sussex joined the chat show larrikin in Los Angeles, where they toured the streets on a double-decker bus.
During the ride, the Prince revealed some rather private details, ultimately confirming it was the “toxic” British Press that led to him leaving royal life.

“We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health,” he told Corden.
“I was like, this is toxic. So I did what any husband and what any father would do.”
Harry continued by telling Corden that he is “way more comfortable with watching The Crown than seeing the stories written about my family or my wife or myself”.
“They don’t pretend to be news, it’s fictional,” he said.
“But it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it’s not strictly accurate, but… it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.”
The segment also features a Facetime call with Meghan, and Harry puts his rapping skills to the test by performing The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.
