Sean Hannity weighed-in Monday night on the growing controversy surrounding Prince Harry after the British Royal called America’s First Amendment “bonkers.”
“I have a message for Harry, who is now attacking one of America’s most sacred rights, the freedom of speech under our First Amendment. Harry, we really don’t need you coming from England to give us lectures on the First Amendment,” Hannity said.
“And if he can understand the importance of free expression and the importance of constitutional principles that allow for a free exchange of ideas and ideals and opinions that have made America the greatest country on Earth. Maybe it’s time for you to move to a place more compatible with your restrictive ideas,” Hannity said.

ROYAL MESS: Prince Harry Calls America’s First Amendment ‘Bonkers’
From Fox News:
The Duke of Sussex made the comments on an episode of Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.
While chatting about life in Los Angeles – where Harry and wife Meghan Markle have settled since leaving the United Kingdom – the prince discussed what he called the media “freezing frenzy” resulting from his stay at film producer and actor Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion. He specifically took issue with the paparazzi.
Nice that he can say that. https://t.co/rC9mGUPpEo

“I don’t want to start sort of going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one in which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short period of time,” Harry said. “But, you can find a loophole in anything. And you can capitalize or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”
“I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers,” he continued.
Harry’s comments ignited a wave of criticism online.
“Nice that he can say that,” replied Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

ROYAL SNUB: Prince Harry May Invite OBAMAS, not Trump to UK Wedding
British royal Prince Harry and his American-born fiancé reportedly want former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama to attend his high-profile wedding next year, further straining relations between UK Prime Minister Theresa May and President Trump.
According to Fox News, the soon-to-be married couple plan on extending the invitation to the Obamas well ahead of their spring wedding; causing a major headache for May who has so-far refused to offer President Trump a formal state visit and meeting with the Queen.
“There are deep fears among senior Foreign Office and [No. 10] officials that another perceived national snub will make it impossible for Theresa May to meaningfully engage with Trump,” reports the Sun. “Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness.”
President Obama and Prince Harry developed a personal relationship while working on the Invictus Games, a multinational sporting event featuring injured veterans from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and other nations.
Harry’s future bride, Meghan Markle, was an outspoken critic of President Trump during the 2016 campaign, calling him a “misogynist” and “divisive.” Ultimately, the decision will be up to the UK government.
“Conversations are ongoing about and ministers will eventually have to decide. If the PM lays down the law, Harry will just have to suck it up,” adds the Sun.
