Prince Harry hopes his children won’t experience the same world of social media as he and his wife

Prince Harry hopes social media will be different from today when his kids are older. The member of the British royal family expressed his concerns about the use of these platforms during a webinar organized by the 5Rights Foundation.

“I’m not an expert in law or technology, but I am a father – and I’m lucky to be a father who can carry his voice. My kids are too young to know about the online world, and I hope they never have to know about what’s out there right now. No child should,” said the father of three-year-old Archie and Lilibet who is approaching her first birthday.

“Sometimes I feel like I can save them from the online violence they might encounter in the future and forever, but I’m learning to use common sense,” Prince Harry continued, before to call for new legislation to push the giants of the Web to modify their platforms to make them less pernicious.

“As parents, my wife and I are worried about the next generation growing up in a world where they are treated as subjects of digital experimentation by money-making corporations and where hate and violence are something standardized party thing. We want our children and all children to have the ability to express themselves,” he added.
