In early January, it became known that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not plan to return to social networks. An insider The Times of London calls the main reason for this decision the hate and harassment on the Web, directed towards the couple after Megsit. Note, Megan has previously repeatedly complained of offensive comments, because of which she “felt depressed.”
Now, in an interview with Fast Company, Prince Harry admitted that after his wedding with Meghan Markle, a flurry of negativity fell upon them and they were subjected to “network tormenting and badgering.” “What is required is a report on aggregate prosperity, not simply monetary rewards. I cannot understand how social networks can happily make a profit, but at the same time avoid responsibility in every possible way, ”said the Duke of Sussex. According to him, last year he talked with experts on the topic of social networks, after which he came to the conclusion that it was necessary to modernize social platforms for the common good.
“We’ll be back on social media when needed. Perhaps my wife and I will see how these platforms have changed. However, now we are busy exploring this space and how we can help, ”concluded Prince Harry. Note that the Dukes of Sussex last used social media on their behalf to post a farewell message in March 2020 on their Sussex Royal profile. The couple then left the royal family. And while Meghan and Harry have launched a podcast on Spotify, their Archewell Charity won’t have their own social media accounts
