Host Dax commented how went on to say how that must’ve been ‘bizarre,’ especially when the ‘ultimate prize was to become royalty’ but in reality, it actually didn’t feel ‘all that euphoric.  

The Duke of Sussex responded: ‘I do think that the old way of thinking – of the prince and princess – with all these little girls reading these wonderful fairytales going “all I want to be is a princess.”‘ 

However, Harry went on: ‘and I’m thinking…’to which the host jumps in: ‘It’s not so rad!’

The 36-year-old, who is currently living in his $14million Californian mansion with his wife and son, said he was born into extraordinary privilege but hinted that he believes this has changed since he quit with Meghan last year, saying: ‘You may start in one place but you can change in time’.

Harry also compared his life as a mixture of The Truman Show – when Jim Carrey’s character discovers his life is a TV show – and being an animal at the zoo as he discussed his mental health and listeners insisted he is developing an american twang to his British accent.
