Kim Kardashian says Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “not perfect” but are “changing the world”
Reality royalty Kim Kardashian has praised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for “changing the world.”
Speaking at the Armenia Technology Convention in Yerevan, the celebrity mogul said that she believes Harry and Meghan are “not perfect” and drew comparison between herself and the royals.
Kim said: “I think that everyone makes their own choices and decisions.
“And I think that, like I said, no one’s gonna be perfect. I’m not, they’re not. I don’t know who is.
“I still love and value the fact they bring such attention to such important movements that need to happen and things that they’re really passionate about. They’re still changing the world.”
It is perhaps not surprising that Kim sees some similarities between herself and the royal couple.
As Harry and Meghan are set to partake in a joint mental health project with the NHS, Every Mind Matters, Kim has openly discussed seeking therapy as well as her husband Kanye West’s struggles with bipolar disorder.
And while Kim found fame starring in the reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Prince Harry will serve as a co-creator and executive producer on a mental health series with Oprah Winfrey.
Kim is also involved in various charitable efforts herself, including successfully campaigning to see various US inmates released from prison who were serving what were deemed as unfairly long sentences.
At the same panel discussion in Armenia, Kim also praised Swedish environmental activist, Greta Thunberg.

She said of the 16 year old: “She is such an amazing young girl. And so brave and courageous to stand up to these grown-ups that can be really scary and for her to be so open and honest is exactly what we need.”
Kim’s defence of Harry and Meghan comes after they have endured various public criticism over the last few months.
Despite completing a successful 10-day tour of Africa, the royal couple have come under fire over allegations of excessive spending and hypocrisy.
Harry has preached on the environment and climate change numerous times, before he and Meghan were criticised for taking multiple private jet trips across Europe this summer.
The Prince has since defended his use of the private planes, and said that they are necessary to protect his family.
Speaking at the launch of Travalyst, an eco-tourism project in Amsterdam, Harry said: “I came here by commercial. I spend 99 per cent of my life travelling the world by commercial.

“Occasionally there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family are safe – it’s generally as simple as that.”
The royal couple have also been criticised for spending £2.4 million of taxpayers money on refurbishing their private residence, Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor.
