    But sometimes you need to start something because it may be criminating dangerous helpful not force to be what he thinks. Sometimes you need to find out the truth about something like is Harry‘s children real I will these false children are these circuits are I know it’s not the same thing, but I’m stupid as he’s he’s putting it. I want to know the truth and they’re lying so therefore I’m stupid we need to know the truth if you’ve got nothing to hide you’ve got no problem love you so he’s got things to hide that’s a conversation. He said something he’s planning something and we need to know if it’s important to know if it’s just chitchat I don’t want to know do you But he’s always doing this always complaining about the papers all the time what is it boils down to I want to sue you so I’ll sue you newspapers because you said that I’ve done that done the other but what is Eden can we suing Harry for what he’s done instead and carried on Allied can we swim Take him to court and sue him all the lies he’s told is Sadie killed 25 men he lied about it, but he could suffer for that. I know it’s not the same thing as yours you talking about, but I’m putting VoiceOver. I want to know the truth about him so I am saying about the newspaper spying on him, planting the microphones, and what have you, but I didn’t get the news all the information, all of it is their job and it’s a right to snoop because of you up to no good and telling lies you want to sort it out in finding out and then put it in the papers until the people around what you’ve been doing wrong, that’s what they normally do, don’t they I know you’ve got rights and wrongs but he will only wants to do is to everybody. Oh if you said so, and so I’m gonna sue you is wrong I was just to see Joners hope you got a damn good job today or all of us working together sausages out the papers will say the innocent he would say is innocent £2 Ginger cat so you get nowhere to the judges wrote out it’s looking like he’s told go away away but soon as you say thing or is it a Panoramas zoom get to the papers spying on me for doing this for doing that you try and prove it, I will prove it We’ve Gotta prove you’ve got any kids yet I will find out the truth that you were about that my love thank you

  3. Why are you snooping prince Harri's information

  4. Background music is good.

    Thanks a million ❤❤❤❤❤❤

  6. wow the three words in this session just so amazing so natural that I've never seen in any books. Thank you so much for your dedication <3 (from Vietnam)

  7. You're forgetting Harry is a royal prince by blood from a thousand year old monarchy. He is currently 5th in line to succession and his children are 6th and 7th. King Charles does not have the power to remove Prince Harry's title. Popularity swings wildly with the royals. The claims Camilla, Charles and William are working in congress with the corrurpt UK tabloid media might sway popularity roles if proven true. Also, Prince Andrews upcoming book will present another wildcard. The balcony precedent could be broken and Harry and Meghan (and potentially Archie and Lili as well) could be allowed on the balcony because Harry is the son of the monarch—possibly overriding the fact that he is no longer a working member of the royal family.

  8. Thank you for telling me some interesting expression. By the way, there was the manga, which is called 'Snoopy' in the US. If I'm not mistaken, the author Chares M Shrits wrote. But why was the beagle dog named as 'Snoopy'? Do you have any idea?

  9. What such a juicy gossip 😮

  10. Absolutely my favourite you tube program. Love to learn new English idioms, phrasal verbs and expressions picking them up directly from the "horse's mouth"😄… it's very useful to improve your English vocabulary cause it allows you to remember words more simply linking theory to practice. Neil my favourite of all the times 😉

  11. Harry is a vivitor.

  12. How come "to achieving" ?!

  13. Left USA to avoid being taxed!!!

    African Americans are stereotyped to be lazy, criminal, be good at sports, have babies out of wedlock, live on welfare and have great rhythm

  15. crying

  16. Love his country that is a lie, he called the British people racist like his family, we dislike Harry and his pathological liar wife too, the British people do not want them here in Britain for tbe king's Coronation, they are absolutely loathed and detested here, and we want nothing to do them in any way shape or form

  17. Tax evasion is why he was in the UK this week.

  18. Screw BBC and their agenda

  19. Because that's his privacy tour😌

  20. So pleased to see Harry at ease in his homeland & being protected properly by the new London-based security team.

    Well done Elton & David for keeping Harry safe & in-country under the radar!

    Hopefully Harry's house-hunting in Wiltshire (& maybe the rest of The Cotswolds too … Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire & Warwickshire) has gone well too so that in due course no one in The Firm (aka The Leakers) will have any access to his family's future stays in the UK and Harry & Meghan can return to and most likely increase their humanitarian work in the UK & Europe, especially now that Archewell is thriving and The Tig is ready for its massive re-launch & newly expanded content portfolio.

    Look out World ~ The best of the Sussexes is just about to kick off!

  28. Actually I think all of us have this characteristic of snooping about each other’s life and this is very bad so many time we are bluffing about a topic for a reason either it’s good or bad as well all we have that life’swork we hope achieve it one day

  29. Being a scientist is my life's work and I am not bluffing here but I don't know why people keep snooping around me because of this.
