Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just made their Instagram debut. But that doesn’t mean they’re big fans of social media, per se. In fact, Harry spoke out about the dangers of social media and video games during his visit to the YMCA in Ealing, London on Wednesday.
Harry was at a roundtable discussing children’s mental health when he called for more “restrictions” on screen time. He not only likened social media use to substance abuse, he said that games like Fortnite “shouldn’t be allowed.”
“Social media is more addictive than drugs and alcohol, yet it’s more dangerous because it’s normalized and there are no restrictions to it,” he explained. “Where is the benefit in having that game in your household? It’s created to addict – an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible, it’s so irresponsible.”
·ONE MORE THING! It’s official – Meghan and Harry have officially moved to their new home at the Windsor Estate. The couple has left Kensington Palace and is starting to settle into Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage. You know what that means, we’re nearly to Meghan’s due date!
·But wait… THERE’S MORE! If you’ve seen reports that Queen Elizabeth II has banned Meghan from wearing jewelry made famous by Princess Diana, pay no mind. A source tells Us Weekly that the rumors are “inaccurate.” Apparently, the Queen only told Meghan it would be “inappropriate” to wear the jewelry for the Royal wedding... but just the one time.
