Prince Harry devastated

Referring to Mandela’s description of hope as “a lifebelt for a swimmer,” the father-of-two said on Monday (July 18): “Let’s be honest, how many of us are at risk of losing those lifebelts right now? How many of us feel defeated and helpless in the face of a seemingly endless stream of disaster and devastation. I understand this has been a painful year in a painful decade.”

He added that Covid “continues to devastate communities in every corner of the world” and stressed that the planet is facing a wave of destruction. Referring to Covid, Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and the overturn of the Roe vs. Wade verdict in the US, he said: “We are witnessing a pandemic that continues to destroy communities in every corner of the world. Climate change is wreaking havoc on our planet, with the most vulnerable suffering the most. From the few weaponizing lies and disinformation against the many, and from the terrible war in Ukraine to the rollback of constitutional rights here in the United States, we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the cries of Mandela’s life. As so often in history, the consequences of decisions made by some of the most powerful people in some of the most powerful countries in the world are felt most strongly in countries like Africa. “The pandemic, war and inflation have plunged Africa into a fuel and food crisis the likes of which we have not seen in a decade. Worse, this comes at a time when Africa is experiencing its worst drought it has seen in half a century.” He added of his love for Africa, “It was here that I felt closest to my mother and sought comfort after she had died and here I knew I had found a soul mate in my wife.”
