Prince Harry says he refuses to read ‘hate’ from trolls in social media purge
Prince Harry has admitted he has a problem with trolls and "hate followers" but says he deals with them by refusing to read anything they write.
Talking to the Teenager Therapy podcast with his wife Meghan Markle – who claimed to be the "most trolled person in the world" – Harry gave kids advice about bullying by drawing on his own experience.
The Duke of Sussex said: "We all have a choice, right?"
"And I think it’s very easy to be sucked in and consumed by negativity but we all the choice to be able to cut that out of our lives.
"You, know, ‘hate following’ has become a thing and you don’t need to do that
"Just as much as we worry about and control what we put in our bellies as a diet, the same applies for our eyes and for our mind.
"What we are consuming is affecting us.
"For me, I make the choice not to read it, not to see it, and remove myself from that and to very much focus on the uplifting and hopeful side."
He then joked that most of the positivity he experiences is from the younger generation of social media users.
In the same podcast, Meghan described the online abuse she received while pregnant with baby Archie as "almost unsurvivable".
The Duchess of Sussex said she found it hard to read things about herself that "aren't true" while she was out of the public eye on maternity leave.
Meghan also let slip her nickname for Prince Harry during the podcast.
Things are now looking up for the former senior royals with their Netflix deal, which will see them making content in exchange for an eye-watering multi-million-dollar paycheck.
A Hollywood insider said they will be under pressure to "produce results" or else end up being regarded as "spoiled elites".
