Prince Harry has hit back over claims he told a friend his bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey would be “shocking” and that “Brits need to learn a lesson”. A spokesman for the Sussexes said accusing the Duke was an “attempted distraction” and Harry has never spoken ill of the British public.

The Sussexes’ spokesman said on Sunday (December 4): “To pit him against his country is shameful and manipulative, especially when Prince Harry has never spoken ill of the British public.”

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s chat with Oprah saw them level allegations of racism against the Royal Family on top of a claim the Duchess’s cries for help when she was feeling suicidal were ignored.

A report published today claimed Harry made comments to a friend before the interview, saying the interview would be shocking.

The Sun was told by an unnamed source that Harry told the friend: “This is going to be quite shocking. Those Brits need to learn a lesson.”

It comes as members of the Royal Family brace themselves for Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary series, which is expected to air on Thursday.

A trailer for the series was released on Thursday with one section appearing to show Meghan wiping away tears while Harry sits with his head tilted right back, seemingly in distress.

The Sussexes are then heard being asked: “Why did you want to make this documentary?”

Harry says: “No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors… I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

Meghan adds: “When the stakes were this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”

Senior aides to King Charles and the Prince and Princess of Wales reportedly plan to watch the series in order to react to any potentially damaging accusations against the monarchy.

A senior royal source has said: “There is a completely united front from the King and his family concerning the numerous attempts to privately make peace with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which sadly have once again resulted in the other side wishing to air their repeated grievances to the world.

“If there is a need to respond to anything in the upcoming series then you can be assured that response will be swift and robust.”
