Britain’s quasi-expat Prince Harry has accomplished what President Joe Biden hasn’t, uniting Americans in calls to send him back to the United Kingdom.

Harry, during an interview on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast, referred to the free speech protections covered by the First Amendment as “bonkers” — and he riled up more than a few critics who proceeded to exercise those rights in his direction.

Former Daily Caller reporter Amber Athey joined “Good Morning Britain” and asked that the UK “please take Prince Harry back!”

Fox News hosts Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters mocked Prince Harry on Monday’s broadcast of “The Five.” Watters suggested that Harry should “see a shrink” and maybe dial back his media presence, while Gutfeld argued that he and pregnant wife Meghan Markle did not appear to be avoiding the paparazzi they claimed to hate.

“‘I know what I’ll do. I’ll move to Hollywood with a fame-hungry actress,'” Gutfeld said in mocking tones.


Piers Morgan, a regular critic of both Harry and Markle, also weighed in on the prince’s comments.

Several argued that the real problem was not just Harry’s assessment but the fact that there were Americans who agreed with it.
