Meghan and Harry are holier-than-thou spoiled brats with nothing to say to ordinary people, says Mercy Muroki

The idea that if you're not prepared to go on a selfless journey to make the world a better place, then you shouldn't have kids, is exactly the kind of rubbish people with too much money say

Prince Harry has of course made his first trip to Europe since no longer being a working member of the Royal Family to visit the Invictus Games at The Hague.

He's finally emerged from his £11million bunker, where he – in my opinion – has been burying his head under the sand – the warm Californian sand – on those Santa Barbara beaches.

Now let me make something clear – I couldn't care less how extravagant people are with their own money. In fact, I believe that at the philosophical level. It's not anybody's place, including mine, to tell two adults how much money they're allowed to make and how they ought to spend it.

In fact – I encourage people to build their own wealth, make their own way in life if they can. I don't care how many millions, or billions anybody has in their bank, as long as they're not harming anyone. So, to make it clear, I'm in favour of Harry and Meghan earning their own money.

But what I do care about – is not being lectured about my morals, my personal life decisions – by out-of-touch, holier-than-thou spoiled brats who took a flight to la-la-land on a private jet once and seem to have never made the return to reality.

And that's how I'm left feeling, yet again – by remarks made by Prince Harry in his appearance at the Invictus games.

Speaking to a group of 11 and 12 year olds, the Duke of Sussex said this: "It's not going to be easy but I will never, ever, ever rest until I have – as a parent at least tried to make the world a better place for [my children] because it is our responsibility that the world is the way it is now."

Sorry – what?

A better place for YOUR children? They are literally, on just about every objective measure some of the most fortunate children to have ever graced the Earth.

They will never have face the hardships, the trials, the toil, sweat, and tears that normal children in the real world have to face. Have some perspective – read the room, for once, Harry.

I can't be the only one who thinks this is all a bit self-indulgent. I can't be the only one that felt a tad nauseaus that time Harry started going on about worrying about passing, quote, "genetic pain and suffering" to his children.

And then there's this part – this part exceptionally irks me – Prince Harry said – and I quote: "I don’t think that we should be bringing children into the world unless we're going to make that commitment to make it better for them. We cannot steal your future."

How utterly sanctimonious do you have to be – how consumed by your own self-righteousness – that you think you can tell people if they should and haven't start a family.

Most families want a family simply because... they want a family. They want to live a relatively quiet, normal life – and for most working families, that is an uphill struggle. People have children because it's fundamentally instinctive, because they fall in love, because they want a family of their own. Full stop.

Most people's primary concern is just putting food on the table, keeping the lights on and the house warm. Most people struggle to just get by.

This idea that if you're not prepared to go on some kind of altruistic, selfless journey to make the world a better place, then you shouldn't have children.

Well, that's just exactly the kind of shpiel people who have more money than they know what to do with come out with. Who sit in their ivory towers in unimaginable luxury, without a clue what life is like for regular people.

You know, I think most people would like to have the luxury of having the time and headspace to think up this garbage. Wouldn't it be lovely if, instead of worrying about how you'll pay your next energy bill, you worried about how we can move towards a greener world where we are 'at one' with nature?

Wouldn't it be nice if, instead of worrying about keeping your children safe from the criminals in your neighbourhood, you had the energy to commit to making the world a peaceful, happy place for the global community of humankind.

Yeah, that would be nice.

Look my advice is this – it's probably best to stop taking anything Prince Harry says seriously, that is if you are one of the few who still are.

The man has nothing to say that is of use to ordinary people.

Rant over.
