The Duke of Sussex spoke openly on the "dangerous" powers of social media - just a day after he and the Duchess of Sussex broke the Instagram record for the fastest account to a million followers - calling it "more addictive than drugs", before turning his attention to cult video game franchise Fortnite.
“In the interests of prevention there are things that are happening at the top that together all of us are slowly putting the pressure on,” he said during a visit to the London YMCA on Wednesday. “A game like Fortnite, for instance, may not be so good for children. Parents have got their hands up – they don’t know what to do about it.”
“It’s like waiting for the damage to be done and kids turning up on your doorsteps and families being broken,” he continued. “That game shouldn’t be allowed. Where is the benefit having that game your household? It’s created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.”
