No freedom to be, only duty to appear. A curse, according to the prince who told the American journalist his truth about his family.
A truth that also involves the other members, specifically the brother William and his father Carlo who, as Harry says, are as trapped as he was. Victims of a real mechanism that tightens and constrains them and devours their true feelings.
