'Poor William and Harry!': Monaco Prince Pierre Casiraghi on Prince William and Prince Harry

It’s not often the media gets to speak with Pierre Casiraghi. The Monaco royal and his wife Beatrice Borromeo rarely step out to make a public appearance. However, in an interview with Boat International, the 31-year-old opened up about his family and his life in Monaco. During the all-things nautical interview, Pierre also revealed his thoughts on privacy and what it’s like to be in the public eye. And as one thing led to another, the sailor admitted his sympathy for Prince William and Prince Harry.

"Everyone deserves their privacy. I understand that people are curious [about our family], but that is not privacy. Privacy is something that touches you and your immediate circle. It is a matter of respect,” he said. “Poor William and Harry! I mean, listen, it’s very difficult to compare us. Great Britain is a very big place with a lot of people; we come from a very small place with different traditions. But they also deserve their privacy.”
