Yes, his voice is muffled ....he speak exactly like Charles .... as if he has two hankies stuffed in his mouth.

Ha, ha, @Pqfan,  I LOVE the guy you put the link to, the acting coach!  John Windsor-Cunningham-- or as he would say, "John Windsah-Cunning'm".

 

Wonderful teacher.  His very understated humor so enjoyable.  He was a real find, thanks for the chuckle!

 

I can fake a not too terrible, all-purpose English accent for a bit, until I forget myself and revert back to my default "Great Lakes" accent when excited or tired.  But his tips are terrific, and he has simplified everything so anybody can practise and get it.

 

Boy, those tricky nuances though, like "court" and "caught".....

Well, you know, there isn't just one "British accent" -- there are many regional accents and dialects, some of which are considered more cultured/refined and others of which are spoken by working class people. (Plenty of people speaking with British accents use slang and bad English, too.)

I don't at all. Harry and William both have beautiful speaking voices too.
