Prince Harry was mocked on social media among the British Twitter fans accusing him of "copy and paste" his brother's, Duke of Cambridge William, speech yesterday at the UN, Daily Express reported on Tuesday.

A video was posted on social media comparing between the two speeches side-by-side. The original speech was delivered by Prince William at the Church of Scotland in 2021.

Harry made the same references such as the mentioning of his mother's death, and talking about Africa.

William said: "And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors.”

On the other hand, Harry said: “It’s where I felt closest to my mother and sought solace after she died.”

Regarding talking about his wife, the Duke of Sussex said about Meghan Markle: "Where I knew I’d found a soulmate in my wife.”

Similarly, the Duke of Cambridge said in his 2021 speech: “It was here in Scotland, 20 years ago, that I first met Catherine. Needless to say, the time when you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart.”

Therefore, Twitter users accused the Duke of Sussex of copying the format of his brother's speech.

It is worthy to mention that the former Royal couple was met by protests outside the headquarter of the United Nations, asking the couple to leave the session and go home.

One of the protestors held up a sign said: “Mandela spent 27 years behind bars in SA. Markle spent 18 months in castles and complained on TV during a pandemic. Why are they here?”

Also, he was also mocked for “empty seats” during his speech after a video spotted the hall.
