Recently, Harry appeared to take a swipe at his father Prince Charles

GMB host Susanna Reid has criticised Prince Harry for seemingly taking a swipe at Prince Charles’ parenting.

During a recent interview on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke of Sussex said he wanted to ‘break the cycle’ of “genetic pain”.

On Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, Susanna said she’s sure any parent wouldn’t “want to hear that discussion”.

She said: “It’s so personal – I absolutely support him talking about mental health.

“I just think when you divulge all the reasons behind that and drag other people into it, you’re dragging other people into it.”

It comes after Harry spoke about how he doesn’t want to pass on any suffering to his own children.
