A close friend of Prince Harry shared that the Duke of Sussex has "suffered a lot" in the midst of his decision to step down from the royal family.
“He's being a father," said Nacho Figueras during a televised ABC News Special. "This is a guy who is trying to protect his cub and his lioness from whatever it takes."
Prince Harry is reportedly feeling the pressure from his decision to step down as a senior member of the royal family.
During an ABC News Special, Royal Divide: Harry, Meghan and the Crown, polo star and close friend to Harry Nacho Figueras said the Duke of Sussex has "suffered a lot" due to the recent high-stakes tension that has stemmed from he and Duchess Meghan's decision to leave royal life behind.
"He's being a father," said Figueras. "This is a guy who is trying to protect his cub and his lioness from whatever it takes."
He continued, "He has suffered a lot from all of the things that have happened to him. He suffers a lot from people judging him."
Harry and Meghan announced the news of their stepping down earlier this month, citing that they want to "carve out a progressive new role within [the royal] institution" and "work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen." The couple are currently residing in Canada with their young son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
The queen expressed her approval of the Sussexes' decision, stating that she understood the intense media scrutiny the couple had endured and wishing them the best for a more peaceful and calm life abroad in Canada.
"It is my whole family's hope that today's agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life," said the queen in her official statement.
