Prince William is earning well-deserved praise for his humble and service-oriented approach, which stands in stark contrast to the public-seeking behavior of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Prince William touched down in New York on a commercial flight from London, expressing his delight at being back. He is set to attend the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently attended the Invictus Games in Germany but have faced backlash in recent months for their claims against the royal family, both in their Netflix documentary and Harry’s forthcoming memoir.
Foreign policy expert and royal family enthusiast Nile Gardner, speaking to the Daily Express U.S., lauded Prince William’s conduct while critiquing Harry and Meghan. Gardner commended Prince William for his humility and dedicated service to the country, emphasizing the gravitas of his role and his commitment to public service.
In contrast, he pointed out that Harry and Meghan actively seek the spotlight, especially Meghan. Gardner also noted Prince William’s surging popularity in the United States, where he has earned favorability ratings higher than those of many prominent figures, including President Joe Biden.
This popularity suggests that Prince William is one of the most respected and admired figures among the American public today. Gardner also believes that Prince William’s visit to the U.S. will be well-received despite the absence of his wife, Princess Kate, who is also highly regarded by Americans.
Upon his arrival in New York, Prince William expressed his excitement, saying, “It’s so good to be back in the United States.” He emphasized the American people’s optimism and ingenuity and how vital it is for their generation to take bold action toward a healthy and sustainable world.
