Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield appeared on GB News to discuss the latest round of Prince Harry’s legal challenge against the Home Office over his security in the UK. Presenter Mark Dolan wanted to know whether Prince Harry had “disrespected” Priti Patel over his demands for Scotland Yard protection with Ms Schofield believing the Duke of Sussex was being influenced by his US team. She explained Americans were not as “respectful” as people in the UK are and said many adopted a “my way or the high way” approach which she believes is rubbing off on Prince Harry.
Speaking on GB News, Mr Dolan wanted to know whether Prince Harry was right or wrong to launch his legal challenge to the Home Office and whether he was disrespecting the UK Government.
Ms Schofield told the programme: “What I wanted to say about this is I really feel like Harry and Meghan have inherited this American attitude.
“This ‘our way or the highway’ and this is a situation where Prince Harry… the people that are mentoring him and working with him throughout some of these issues.
“They are Americans, and they don’t understand the proper way to communicate and they don’t understand that element of respect.
“It’s just we are not as respectful and kind as decent as your people I hate to break it to you Mark but you guys are much better human beings than we are.
“But it seems like he has inherited the attitude, the American attitude of it’s our way or the highway and I do feel like he probably did not mean it to come off that way.”
Ms Schofield said she respected the fact that Prince Harry fought for his country and wanted to remain in the army.
But the royal commentator dismissed his concerns over security as the reason for the Duke’s visit – for the Jubilee and Prince Philip’s memorial – would mean he would have security around him.

She added: “That’s typical criteria for you, I don’t know… it’s hard for me to fight this battle for him.”
Prince Harry is challenging a decision from the Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures (Ravec) who have denied his request for police protection when he visits the UK.
Representatives of the royal say he does “not feel safe” in the UK and wants police protection as his current team will not have enough jurisdiction in the UK.

The first hearing kicked off this week with Robert Palmer QC, for the Home Office, telling the court that Prince Harry’s offer of private funding was “irrelevant”.
He said: “Personal protective security by the police is not available on a privately financed basis, and Ravec does not make decisions on the provision of such security on the basis that any financial contribution could be sought or obtained to pay for it.”
