“On top of this, there is a sense of being ‘on call’ 24/7 through social media, and the subsequent strains this can have on relationships, home life and, ultimately, a child’s sense of their own self-worth. It can all take its toll,” The Duke said.Just last week, the Duke also called for a "global population control" mirroring the Georgia Guidestones first commandment which reads, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature”.The Prince said that "exploding global populations" is resulting in "to many humans" on the planet and putting enormous pressure on wildlife unless it's somehow "managed" reports: “Role-modelling and giving a child the tools of courage, discipline and resilience are a demonstration of great love and commitment to that child’s success in life. If you are not taught these skills at a young age, it can be very, very difficult to learn them as an adult,” he said.Resilience is a quality required by the royal family, who have the minutiae of their lives pored over by the tabloid press. The internet has provided yet another platform on which to pass judgment on their outfits, choice of partners, and indeed the whole point of the monarchy.On Monday, a woman accused of a “distastefully” describing Kate and William’s son Prince George as the face of “white privilege” was denied compensation after being sacked by the British Council.Angela Gibbins, who earned £80,000 ($105,000) a year as head of global estates at the charity, which promotes Britain’s image worldwide, was sacked for gross misconduct following her “distasteful and personal attack” on the heir to the throne.
Kensington Palace was forced to issue an unprecedented statement last year, approved by Prince Harry, denouncing the “wave of abuse” to which his girlfriend Meghan Markle and her family were subjected before the relationship was even confirmed.“Some of this [harassment] has been very public,” the palace’s statement said. “The smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.”
