Prince Harry did not hold back when it comes to sharing his opinion on the popular video game Fortnite. While visiting 8-year-old students in Sussex, England, with his wife Meghan Markle, he asked the kids a few questions about the game — which is geared toward kids 12 and older — and responded with his own two cents.

"He asked how old we are. We said that we were 8 and he said, 'You guys shouldn't really play Fortnite,'" one of the students told People. The students explained that Prince Harry wondered, "What is wrong with parents?" after they admitted most of their moms and dads let them play the online game.

According to the report, Prince Harry even crouched down to talk to the kids and suggested that they look into playing other games.

Emma Johnston, a teacher at the school, said that Harry's not the only one up in arms about Fortnite. "He was saying that it's a concern of his, children playing the game before they are allowed to," she said, adding that, "We were saying that as a school it's a concern for us, too."
