Harry and his wife Meghan have appeared as part of an emotionally charged trailer for his mental health documentary series with Oprah Winfrey, which is called ‘The Me You Can’t See’ and is scheduled for release on Apple TV+ from Friday. The trailer was released just days after the prince appeared to question the parenting of his father Prince Charles. Speaking during the Armchair Expert podcast, the duke said he “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” for the sake of his own children.
Harry said of his father Charles: “He’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?”
The duke also sparked a furious reaction after branding the First Amendment, which protects the right to freedom of speech, “bonkers” before conceding he does not fully understand it.
Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, has now launched a furious attack against Harry.
Writing in the Daily Express, he warned: “By going on and on about his problems Harry is starting to turn people off, and even some supporters are losing patience.
“He also made a big mistake calling the US First Amendment protecting free speech as ‘bonkers’ even though he admits he doesn’t fully understand it.
“Piers Morgan found out that Americans don’t like to be lectured to by outsiders when he called for tighter gun controls while at CNN.
“Harry will feel there is safety in numbers in this latest programme.
“Glenn Close, Lady Gaga and Oprah herself are interviewed, and all seem to burst into tears recalling their own mental struggles.
“Harry has the right to speak out on mental health – but at what cost?
“Does he ever think about the effect he is having on the health of the Queen, Charles and William?”
Harry and Meghan have appeared in a trailer – released on the Archewell website – for the duke’s mental health documentary with Oprah.
He says in conversation with the chat show host: “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”

The trailer also features footage of a young Harry attending his late mother Diana’s funeral procession, with the archive film showing him bowed as her coffin passes by, while standing alongside his father Charles.
Harry is also facing a furious backlash over his severe criticism of the First Amendment.
Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast last Thursday, the duke told host Dax Shepard: “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.
“I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.
“But, you can find a loophole in anything.
“You can capitalise or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”
Earlier this year, the Sussexes made a series of bombshell allegations about the Royal Family during a controversial interview with Winfrey.
The Duke and Duchess also accused an unnamed royal, not the Queen or her late husband Prince Philip, of voicing concerns about how dark their son Archie’s skin tone would be before he was born.
Meghan also told the chat show host she asked for help when she was suicidal, but claimed the Royal Family gave her no support.
