Prince Harry blasts institutional racism and speaks of need to 'right the wrongs of the past'

Prince Harry has spoken out against institutional racism and apologized for not doing enough to change the world.

The aristocrat, who reportedly lives in a luxurious mansion in Los Angeles, recorded a video of himself to promote an award set up for his mother, Diana Spencer.

Harry explained that his wife, the actress Meghan Markle, had recently told him that his generation (he is 35) “and the ones before us” have not done enough “to right the wrongs of the past.”

He added: “I too am sorry – sorry that we haven't got the world to a place you deserve it to be."

"Institutional racism has no place in our societies, yet it is still endemic," he went on.

"Unconscious bias must be acknowledged without blame to create a better world for all of you."

What the prince intends to do to help “right the wrongs of the past” was not explained, but his name is associated with a number of charities, including the Invictus Games Foundation.

Both sides of Harry’s family are connected with what are now deemed historical “wrongs” by many people, including the creation and maintenance of the British Empire and centuries of brutal mistreatment of British peasants and workers by the aristocracy.

He is believed to be worth over $15 million, mostly thanks to an inheritance from his mother, a member of the aristocratic Spencer family.
