During his interview on the Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke of Sussex hit out at Prince Charles’ parenting. He said he did not want to pass on pain from his own experience to his son Archie and future daughter.
All three royal households have been left angry following his explosive interview.
Royal experts have claimed Harry’s suggestion he was failed by his own father and through association the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh.
A senior aide said it was “unnecessarily cruel” to “throw others under the bus” while making a point about mental health.
Another royal source told The Telegraph: “For a couple that have been at pains to set out their compassionate principles, they seem woefully lacking when it comes to their own family.
“It’s not just the Prince of Wales but the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as well.
“It has been met with utter bemusement.”
During his lengthy conversation with hosts Dax Shepard and Monica Padman, Harry said he wanted to “break that cycle”.
He said: “I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.'”
He added: “It’s hard to do but for me, it comes down to awareness.
“I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go ‘okay, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?'”
According to Royal commentator, Roya Nikkah said Charles would have been “bewildered” by Harry’s comments as he did “his best” to raise him and Prince William.
