Prince Harry has divided opinion with his “constant bashing” of Prince Charles during a period of mourning for the Royal Family. In recent interviews, Prince Harry has said he feels “really let down” by the Prince of Wales and has criticised his father’s parenting skills.
Daisy McAndrew, NBC’s Royal contributor said that the reaction to Prince Harry’s interviews have been split as some people “feel he’s gone too far constantly bashing Prince Charles who is of course himself mourning the death of his father.”
She also said, “Some people are saying of course he’s allowed to talk about his own feelings, but equally, when he talks about his own feelings, he always brings in other members of the Royal Family – particularly his relationship with his father.”
Prince Harry initially spoke about the strained relationship with his father during a 2-hour tell-all interview with TV chat-show host Oprah Winfrey in March.
He also claimed his father and brother were “trapped” within the institution and were unable to leave.
Last Friday, Prince Harry’s new docuseries ‘The Me You Can’t See’, which was co-produced with Oprah Winfrey, premiered on Apple TV+ and revealed further tension with the Royal Family.
Prince Harry spoke again of his relationship with the Prince of Wales and criticised his father’s failure to protect his sons from the media intrusion they endured whilst growing up.
He told Oprah, “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I: ‘Well it was like that for me so it’s gonna be like that for you.’”
He said that “a lot of genetic pain and suffering” gets passed on, and that he wished to “break that cycle” so his children would not endure any pain that he had suffered during his childhood
He also accused the Royal Family of “total neglect” when it came to matters of mental health, leaving his wife to feel suicidal whilst she was pregnant.
His comments come at a difficult time for the Royal Family, as they are still mourning the loss of the Queen’s husband Prince Philip.
Prince Philip died on April 9, 2021 at Windsor Castle, with the Queen at his bedside.
Following his death, Prince Charles released a personal statement saying, “My family and I miss my father enormously. He was a much loved and appreciated figure and apart from anything else, I can imagine, he would be so deeply touched by the number of other people here and elsewhere around the world and the Commonwealth, who also I think, share our loss and sorrow.”

Prince Harry returned to the UK to attend the funeral of his grandfather, and was seen walking behind the hearse along with other senior members of the Royal Family.
Harry was seen chatting to both Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.
Although that was a public display of unity, conversations between father and son behind closed doors have reportedly been unproductive.
The Duke of Sussex is next due to return to the UK on July 1, 2021 for the unveiling of a statue in commemoration of his mother, Princess Diana. The statue will be unveiled in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace and will celebrate what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.
