Prince Harry mocked by US Supreme Court Justice after wading into Roe V Wade

A member of the Supreme Court in the United States has mocked Prince Harry for wading into the Roe V Wade debate.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito mocked the Duke of Sussex for his comments on the domestic US issue during his first public remarks since his decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

When discussing his decision, Alito targeted Prince Harry along with Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for criticizing his opinion on the contentious ruling.

Justice Alito said he was "wounded" by comments made at a recent United Nations address from Prince Harry and also mocked comments made by world leaders on the controversial ruling, which has revoked the right to an abortion.

The justice said: "What really wounded me, what really wounded me, was when the Duke of Sussex addressed the United Nations and seemed to compare the decision, whose name may not be spoken, with the Russian attack on Ukraine.

"I had the honour this term of writing I think the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a whole string of foreign leaders who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law."

The conservative judge made the comments at a conference on religious liberty in Rome, Daily Mail reported.

Prince Harry was accompanied by Meghan Markle to the event, where he spoke of the Roe V Wade ruling as a "global assault on democracy and freedom".

He added: "And from the horrific war in Ukraine to the rolling back of constitutional right in the US we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom, the cores of Mandela's life."
