Jennie Bond was invited onto Sky News to share her thoughts on Prince Harry’s recent interview with the Armchair Expert podcast where he discussed his life and struggles in the Royal Family. But the royal expert picked up on a few contradictions within his interview which saw him insult his father Prince Charles and talk about his early years where he wanted to leave the institution. It has not been the first time he and his wife Meghan Markle have been involved in interview blunders as many were debunked or questioned following their sit-down with Oprah Winfrey.
Prince Harry was invited onto the Armchair Expert podcast hosted by Dax Shepherd and discussed his mental health, life in the Royal Family and his relationship with other members.
The Duke of Sussex brought up his relationship with Prince Charles and said he “passed on his suffering” after tracing his father’s life experiences and trauma.
He added there was a certain amount of “genetic pain” that is passed on from parent to child but said it was the responsibility of the parent to alleviate that.
Prince Harry said he wanted to end the “cycle” for his own children which was why he was eager to move away from the institution and set up a new life.
But it was these comments that raised Ms Bond’s eyebrows after she pondered why Prince Harry made the statement following his own positions of “not pointing the finger”.
Ms Bond told Sky News: “In [the interview] the anomalies are the fact Harry said there is no blame attached and there is no pointing the finger.
“Then what does he do? He points his finger directly at his father and at his grandparents as well.
“And I think you see Prince Charles out today doing his royal duties and then being subjected to questions shouted at him basically saying you are a rotten father, what do you think about your son saying you’re a rotten father.”
Prince Charles ignores question from journalist about Harry
BBC journalists were seen yelling out questions to Prince Charles asking if he agreed there was “pain and suffering” in the family.
Prince Charles was carrying out an engagement in Cardiff where he was visited manufacturers of medical and defence equipment.
It is not the first time Prince Harry or his wife Meghan have been accused of hypocrisy or lying during an interview.
In their sit down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan alleged she was married a few days before her main public wedding on May 19 in her garden but wedding documents proved otherwise.
Royal commentators have also doubted the extent she was denied mental health support considering her husband’s admission of receiving therapy among other royals who have also sought and received help easily.
Concerns about baby Archie’s titles were also debunked when it was revealed the reasoning behind his lack of title was down to a 1917 letters patent which would deny Archie the title of prince until Prince Charles ascends the throne.
Ms Bond was then asked how the Queen and Charles would take the podcast being released.

She replied: “I think they will both be incredibly hurt because Harry has implied that his upbringing was full of pain and suffering and was a hand-me-down from his father.
“Yes Prince Philip did send Charles to School in Scotland and that did make Charles unhappy did he repeat that mistake – no he didn’t.
“He sent his sons to Eton so he did break the cycle, I think they’re going to be terribly upset that this has been put up on a public platform saying if you have a platform you must use it responsibly.
“Fine, I agree with that but is it responsible to sling mud at your parents and very elderly grandmother?
“Is it what Meghan and Harry are always saying we should do which is be kind and empathetic, compassionate, is it compassionate to do this in public to your own family?”
