Prince Harry: I don’t want to be a celebrity

ICONINSIDER — Prince Harry doesn’t want to be a “celebrity”.
The 32-year-old royal has admitted he wants to use his role as a member of the Royal Family to “do good” rather than just be branded as a famous public figure who doesn’t do anything with their platform.
He said: “We don’t want to be just a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good.”
And the flame-haired royal also opened up about a time he wanted to quit the Royal Family to live his life as a normal person, but was motivated to stay by his devotion to his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
He said: “I felt I wanted out but then decided to stay in and work out a role for myself.”
One place Harry could find an escape from royal life was during his time in the British Army, but he admits he was “resentful” in 2007 when he was forced to pull out of Afghanistan’s Helmand province after a magazine leaked his whereabouts.
He revealed: “I felt very resentful. Being in the Army was the best escape I’ve ever had. I felt as though I was really achieving something. I have a deep understanding of all sorts of people from different backgrounds and felt I was part of a team. [In the Army] I wasn’t a Prince, I was just Harry.”
Prince Harry said it was his brother Prince William who recommended he seek professional help after leaving the army, and it was then that he found a way to reinvent himself by promoting the cause of injured servicemen and women, and tackling mental health issues.
And despite previously wanting out, Harry now wants to make sure the Monarchy “lasts”, but also wants to make important changes to how things are done.
He told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: “We want to make sure the Monarchy lasts and are passionate about what it stands for. But it can’t go on as it has done under the Queen. There will be changes and pressure to get them right.”
