Prince Harry — Duke of Sussex, sixth in line for the British throne, and husband of nine-months-pregnant Meghan Markle of Suits and marrying-a-freaking-prince fame — caused a bit of a kerfuffle on Wednesday while visiting a YMCA in West London to discuss the effects of social media and violent video games on children with a group of mental health experts. He seemed to desire a ban on the game Fortnite, currently the world’s most popular free-to-play game. Some of his choicest quotes during the event were rounded up by The Daily Express and published Thursday:

“The game [Fortnite] shouldn’t be allowed. […] Where is the benefit of having it in your household? […] It’s created to addict, an addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible. […] Parents have got their hands up — they don’t know what to do about it. […] It’s like waiting for the damage to be done.”
