Is there a worse example of Royal Family members being out of touch in everyday life than this?
The king of hypocrisy Prince Harry – a man paid tens of millions for doing sweet FA – hit a woke new low today by brazenly advising mere mortals ‘stuck in jobs that don’t bring them joy’ to quit.
That’s right, just three weeks before Christmas, if you’re not enjoying work, you should pack it in, walk out, tell the boss to get stuffed.
Presumably, that’s pretty easy to say for a bloke who was bankrolled by a rich daddy, has a £30 million inheritance tucked away in the bank and is now raking it in from US media giants after turning on his own family.
Harry has never experienced the fear felt by millions of Brits every day who work a multitude of jobs they don’t necessarily like very much to be able to put food on the table for their family and keep a roof over their head.
He was speaking in his ‘job’ as ‘chief impact officer’ with San Francisco-based, uber-woke £4 billion executive coaching business BetterUp.

This is ironic, because being chief impact officer does not sound like a job.
Rather, it’s a fake role created for politically correct companies with more money than sense to get a celebrity on the books to impress investors.
In other words, Holier-than-thou Harry – the man who hung his father out to dry for his connections to a rich Saudi looking for an honour – is an expensive hired mouthpiece for another bunch of Silicon Valley snake-oil salesmen.
Harry, who isn’t intellectually gifted, is already hiding behind Californian mumbo jumbo with great aplomb.
During the event today, he made his damaging comments while preaching about an apparent post-pandemic employment shake-up dubbed the ‘great resignation’, saying: ‘I’ve actually discovered recently, courtesy of a chat with [BetterUp science board member]Adam Grant says that not all resignations from jobs are negative.
“In reality, this is an indicator that self-awareness leads to the desire for change. People all over the globe have had to endure miserable jobs and are now putting their happiness and mental well-being first. It is something that should be celebrated.
It is reckless and irresponsible advice that can make you sick.
Surely the worst possible thing for someone’s mental health is being left without the money to support themselves or their family.
But, as someone who has never had to grapple with overdrafts, unpaid credit cards or unexpected bills, that’s a stress Harry can’t even imagine.
Does he really think that people should stop working if they don’t have any savings, or if there is no chance of getting work?
Do you really think he believes signing up for dole is the ticket to better self-esteem
My personal experience is that those who persevere in jobs they don’t necessarily find joyful will win in the end.
I hated filling the fat vat at McDonald’s before slaving over the French fries machine for eight hours, untangling 20,000 coat hangers non-stop at a department store for 12-hours a day, and sorting then delivering 10,000 pamphlets at 5.30am on a below zero winters morning.
All three jobs paid my education and put me on the path I wanted.
In Harry’s professional utopia, I’d love to know who cooks the French fries, untangles the coat hangers and delivers the pamphlets.

It certainly wasn’t him as he skated through his education without the need for a Saturday or part-time job.
CKB Recruitment’s managing director in Gloucester Kieran Boyle told MailOnline that this fella does indeed live in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Although most people want to quit a bad job, the truth is that it’s not possible.
“A large chunk of workers are just two to three paychecks away from losing their entire income.” Maybe our prince needs to start engaging his brain earlier than his lips move.
A lot of people in my life are miserable at their jobs.
This can often be a great thing, since they are able to make a living rather than working.
Each of their professions are tiresome, boring, or stressful. However, they all know that it is necessary to provide for their family and personal happiness.
It’s telling that many lotto winners end up returning to a job they worked before finding unexpected riches because they soon discover it’s a routine that keeps the rest of their life anchored.
But Harry doesn’t understand any of that.
Today, he makes his money by spreading Californian propaganda to tech giants such as Spotify, Netflix, and other streaming services like Netflix.
It’s a shame that ordinary people who are struggling just to survive feel the effects.
The greatest contrast with Prince William is his brother, who refused to give up no matter what the cost for his country and the greater good of his people.

The Duke of Cambridge acknowledges that his life of great privilege – including no need to ever worry about money – comes with real sacrifice.
Just yesterday, in a new podcast for Apple, Wills told how he had been left facing a mental health crisis after rescuing a seriously injured child – believed to be five-year-old Bobby Hughes, who was left brain damaged after a horror car smash in 2017 – during his stint as an air ambulance helicopter pilot.
Opening up about how painful the experience at work was, William explained ‘It really hit me weeks later. It was almost like someone put a key inside a lock without asking permission. It felt as if the entire world had ended.
“My life, my personal and professional lives were absolutely perfect. I was happy at home and work, but I kept looking at myself, going, ‘Why am I feeling like this? Why do I feel so sad?’
‘And I started to realise that, actually, you’re taking home people’s trauma, people’s sadness, and it’s affecting you.’
But did he quit? He didn’t!
William sought out help through the service, met with his family to resolve the emotional trauma, and then was forced to accept full-time royal duties.
And that’s the real difference between the two royal brothers.
Stoic William is someone who finds his work difficult at times but pushes through with the acknowledgement it’s important and will make a difference for others, even though sometimes it’s far from joyful.
Snowflake Harry, the symbol of the wakeful generation who think that the best way to solve every problem is to just cry discrimination and pack everything in rather than trying to make it work for the greater good.
Only one of these men, thank the Lord, will become King.
