The Monaco royal, who is the 7th cousin twice removed of Queen Elizabeth II, spoke out against the Duke Duchess of Sussex and said their interview with Oprah Winfrey was completely appropriate. He argued the couple should not have aired their concerns to the public. In response to Prince Albert’s comments, a royal expert has commended the Queen’s distant relative for speaking out and acknowledging Meghan and Harry had “gone too far”.
Phil Dampier, a leading royal author, wrote in Saturday’s Daily Express: “Well done to Prince Albert for speaking out honestly.
“He clearly strongly feels that the Duke and Duchess crossed a line when they washed their dirty linen in public.
“I’m sure Albert gave his opinion partly out of affection for the Royal Family.
“He will have sympathised with a young Harry who, like him, lost his mother.
“But as well he will understand the pressures on William who, also like him, had his destiny mapped out.
“He understands where the Sussexes ‘are coming from’ but obviously thought they had gone too far.”
Earlier this week Albert hit out at the pair for publicly speaking out against the Royal Family.
But he did say he understood some of the Sussexes’ concerns.

In an exclusive interview with the BBC World News, Albert said: “It’s very difficult to be in someone’s place.
“I can understand the pressures that they were under, but I think that this type of public display of dissatisfaction, to say the least, these types of conversations should be held within the intimate quarters of the family, and it doesn’t really have to be laid out in the public sphere like that.
“So, it did bother me a little bit.
“I can understand where they are coming from in a certain way, but I think it wasn’t the appropriate forum to be able to have these kinds of discussions.”

Despite his concerns, Albert did wish Meghan and Harry all the best as they forge their new lives in the US, and outside of the Royal Family.
He said: “I wish him the best.
“It’s a difficult world there and I hope that he can have the judgement and wisdom to make the right choices.”
Meghan and Harry made a number of incendiary claims in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired earlier this month.
The couple accused an unnamed member of the Royal Family of racism and claimed Meghan was not supported by the Firm when she was feeling suicidal.
Meghan told Oprah: “In those months when I was pregnant there were concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he was born.”
Both her and Harry refused to reveal the identity of the person behind the comments as it was too uncomfortable.
But Oprah later clarified the remark was not made by the Queen or Prince Philip.
