Britain's Prince Harry Condemns Fortnite as 'Irresponsible' & Wants It Banned

Prince Harry

In a recent visit to a west London YMCA, Prince Harry had some not so nice words to say about Fortnite, calling it irresponsible, addicting, and damaging. Do you think the accusations are unfounded?

"But we won't know until nearer the time, they will decide how they want to do it".

As Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, prepare for the imminent arrival of their first child, they've been in the midst of a great deal of transition within the royal fold. "Where is the benefit of having that game in your household?"

In the adorable photos, the Duke of Sussex - who's expecting his first child with wife Meghan in April - can be seen attempting to balance on one leg alongside the eager youngsters.

He also criticized social media, describing it as "more addictive than drugs and alcohol".

Since its release in September 2017, the battle royale title has quickly become one of the most popular games in the world, with massive crossover appeal thanks its huge success on streaming platforms like Twitch. Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children's computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post, at the Science Museum which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors.

Who is Prince Harry and can he ban Fortnite in the UK?

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and member of the British royal family, thinks that gaming phenomenon Fortnite shouldn't be allowed.

Video game addiction has been discussed for many years, with Epic Games' Fortnite recently becoming the epicentre.

His comments about Fortnite, a multi-player video game that now has 250 million registered players worldwide, brought equal parts disbelief and agreement from the online community.

Additionally, the diagnosis of a "gaming disorder" is anticipated to pass as a new part of the International Classification of Diseases at next month's World Health Assembly. Just like physical exercise, which we all know is good for us; we have to care for our minds as much as we do for our bodies.
