Prince Harry sparked criticism for his latest interview and now a royal expert has said it’s “hurtful” to his family.

The Duke of Sussex appeared on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast this week and appeared to take aim at father Prince Charles‘ parenting.

He also discussed why he decided to step back from royal life and admitted he wanted to quit the “job” in his early 20s.

Mr Rae continued: “I cannot see how relationships between Harry and the family can ever be repaired.

“Harry has turned into a petulant Prince who deserted Britain to escape his life of privilege and to have privacy.

“This is a strange way of being private. He has not stopped giving interviews.

“The recent podcast with Dax Shepard is Harry using a machine gun approach to further cause distress to the Royal family.

“He even managed to upset the citizens of his adopted country by criticising the First Amendment which protects free speech and the press and he described it as bonkers.

“Talk about biting the hand that is now feeding you! Harry really does need to shut up now.”

I cannot see how relationships between Harry and the family can ever be repaired.

It comes after the Duke of Sussex sparked division with his comments about his father’s parenting.
