The Duke of Sussex has compared life in the Royal family to a mix between being on The Truman Show and being in a zoo. He admitted that he realised in his 20s that he did not want the “job” or to be a part of that “operation”, having seen what it did to his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Prince Harry, 36, said it was when he started therapy, following a conversation with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, that “the bubble burst” and helped him “pluck his head out of the sand,” realising he needed to use his position of privilege to help others. In a wide-ranging, 90-minute interview with American actor Dax Shepard for his Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke described how he was told he needed help as a child, his lack of self-awareness when he was “going wild” in his younger years and how the feeling of helplessness was his “achilles heel”. He said he had “always felt different” and suggested he felt far more connected with people he had met in Africa and on other continents than those within the confines of the palace. The Duke, who was promoting his new AppleTV series about mental health, The Me You Cannot See, appeared to criticise the way he had been raised by his father, revealing he had deliberately adopted a different parenting method to “break the cycle” of pain and suffering. Privilege The Duke acknowledged that he was born into a life of great privilege, which had given him “the most unbelievable front row seat” as he travelled around the world, seeing people who were suffering and developing empathy. He said: “My education was not at school, my education was about meeting people across the Commonwealth. “The reality is, you meet these kids and go into these communities all over the world and it just puts it into context and that’s why I feel more comfortable being able to discuss my own struggles now, because I do it to help other people.” He said he did not consider it “complaining” but sharing his own vulnerabilities and experiences, because in doing so, he knew that it would have a positive impact on someone else’s life. The Duke said he felt “way more connection” to those “emotionally free people and systemic free people” he had worked with in Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. “The privilege does give you blinkers,” he said. “Mine were never particularly on straight. I’ve always felt different.” He credited his late mother for that feeling, saying the impact she had on him in the short time they had together was “huge” because all she wanted to do was to ensure they had as normal a life as possible. The Duke suggested that the fairytale dream of princes and princesses was out of step with reality. “My wife had the most amazing explanation to that: ‘You don't need to be a princess, you can create the life that will be better than any princess.’ “And that’s coming from her own lived experience. We got together and she was like 'wow, this is very different to what my friends at the beginning said it would be’.”
Men detained in a Home Office van have been released following a face off between police and protesters in Glasgow. A crowd of around 200 people gathered in Kenmure Street this morning, with people lying under a Home Office van to stop it moving. Dozens of police officers surrounded the vehicle as people chanted "cops go home" and "leave our neighbours, let them go".

Two men detained by UK immigration officers in Glasgow on Thursday were released hours later after hundreds of protests surrounded a Home Office van to block the removal. Police Scotland said they took the decision on safety grounds after around 200 demonstrators took to the streets following a raid at a property in Pollokshields, within Nicola Sturgeon's constituency, just before 10am. The attempted removal sparked an angry response from neighbouring residents and politicians as it coincided with the start of celebrations for Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim festival marking the end of Ramadan. Staff from UK Immigration Enforcement are believed to have swooped on a property in Pollokshields, as campaigners questioned why the widely condemned practice of dawn raids appears to be recurring in Glasgow, the only dispersal city for asylum seekers in Scotland. Ms Sturgeon accused the Home Office of creating a "dangerous situation" and described the Government's immigration policy as "unacceptable" as she led the objections from politicians and campaigners. One man positioned himself under the Home Office van to prevent it from being driven off, while chants of "Leave our neighbours, let them go" and "Cops go home" rang out at the scene.

Britons hoping for a holiday in Portugal when travel restrictions lift next week are facing fresh uncertainty after the country extended its "state of calamity". The second-highest level of coronavirus alert is going to remain in place until 30 May at the earliest, almost two weeks after the country is added to a green list of destinations where holidaymakers can go without having to isolate on their return. Portugal is one of the few options for travellers seeking a quick sunny break, as many of the other countries on the green list are either closed to tourists, too cold, or too remote.
