PRINCE Harry has made a huge political plea in the US as the Duke demands “new laws” in a landmark speech.
The Duke of Sussex joined 5Rights Foundation as it launched the Global Child Online Safety Toolkit webinar.
Harry spoke at the online event titled Making Child Online Safety a Reality with young people around the world – and shared his fears in regard to his kids.
The Duke told those tuned in that he hopes 18-month-old Lilbet and Archie, three, will “never have to experience the internet as it exists now”.
Speaking for the first time about his opinion on social media, he said: “I’m not an expert on law or technology, but I am a father—and I’m lucky enough to be a father with a platform. My kids are too young to have experienced the online world yet, and I hope they never have to experience it as it exists now. No kid should have to.”
He continued: “It is not realistic to protect kids from everything. We need new laws. We need public pressure. We need strong leadership.”
