Royal Family news – Prince Harry SAVAGES Charles again in new Oprah interview blasting his dad for 'letting me suffer'

PRINCE Harry has let rip at Prince Charles once again in another bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

In the doc – The Me You Can't See – the Duke of Sussex opens up about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him after the death of mother Princess Diana.

But the 36-year-old also renewed his attacks on his closest relatives, not least his father Charles who be blasts for doing little to help him through his mental health struggles after Diana's death.

"My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you'," Harry told Oprah.

"That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite," he added on the TV doc.

"If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids."

"Isn't it all about making sure that history doesn't repeat itself? That whatever pain and suffering has happened to you, that you don't pass on."

    ROYAL SHOWED 'TOTAL NEGLECT', HARRY CLAIMS

    Prince Harry has accused his family of showing "total neglect" for his mental health woes and claims dad Charles made him "suffer".

    The Duke blasted his own dad Charles – saying he did little to help him through his struggles.

    He says: "My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you.'

    "That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite.

    COPS WON’T PROBE BASHIR OVER DIANA INTERVIEW

    No criminal investigation will be launched into the journalist Martin Bashir over his 1995 interview with Princess Diana, cops confirmed in March 2021.

    The Metropolitan Police force said then that “no further action will be taken” over allegations that Bashir used illegal subterfuge to get the interview.

    Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, alleged that Bashir used false documents, including fake bank statements, and other dishonest tactics to convince Diana to agree to the interview.

    Police Commander Alex Murray said detectives had “carefully assessed” the allegations and sought advice from lawyers.

    The force’s comments came two months ahead of an official inquiry concluding that the BBC covered up Bashir’s “deceitful behaviour” and that its journalist was in “serious breach” of the broadcaster’s guidelines when he faked bank statements.

    HARRY CLAIMS CRITICS ‘WON’T STOP UNTIL MEGHAN DIES’

    Prince Harry has claimed critics “won’t stop until Meghan dies” and likened himself to his mum Diana as she was “in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white”.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, has claimed the Royal Family failed to help her when she had suicidal thoughts.

    Harry told Oprah Winfrey he was worried “history was repeating itself”, drawing parallels with his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash when Harry was 12.

    Harry said: “My mother was chased to her death while she was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t white.

    “And now look what’s happened. You want to talk about history repeating itself? They’re not going to stop until she dies. It’s incredibly triggering to potentially lose another woman in my life. “

    HARRY MAKES ANOTHER BLAST AT THE QUEEN

    Prince Harry claimed The Firm tried to “smear” Meghan in a shocking blast at the Queen.

    The Duke of Sussex spoke about Meghan’s struggles with mental health – and said the palace was at fault for making her “cry into her pillow” at night after the royal couple recorded their interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

    “Before the Oprah interview had aired, and because of their headlines and the combined effort of The Firm and the media to smear her, I was woken in the night to hear Meghan crying into her pillow because she doesn’t want to wake me up because I’m already carrying too much,” he said.

    “That’s heartbreaking.”

    PRINCE WILLIAM SAVAGES BBC ‘WHO LET HIS MUM DOWN’

    Prince William has blasted the “lurid and false claims” Martin Bashir made to get the 1995 Princess Diana interview.

    The Duke of Cambridge said the lies about the Royal Family “played on her fears and fuelled paranoia” – while brother Harry said the probe was the “first step towards justice” for their mum.

    Wills emphatically slammed the BBC for the interview and its fallout, insisting the failings “not only let my mother down, and my family down; they let the public down”.

    In a heartfelt outpouring, the Duke of Cambridge told of his “indescribable sadness” that his tragic mother had been tricked and deceived by Bashir and failed by the Beeb and its leaders.

    CONTINUED: ‘YOU NEVER EVEN MET HER’

    Harry told his series co-host Oprah Winfrey: “When my mum was taken away from me at the age of 12, I didn’t want the life, sharing the grief of my mother’s death with the world.

    “For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses’ hooves going along the Mall.

    “It was like I was outside of my body and just walking along doing what was expected of me.

    “(I was) showing one tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing: This was my mum – you never even met her.

    “I was so angry with what happened to her and that there was no justice, at all. Nothing came from that.”

    HARRY 'ANGRY' AT PUBLIC FOR MOURNING DIANA'S DEATH

    Prince Harry has revealed he was "angry" at the British public for mourning his mother Diana because they "never even met her".

    The Duke of Sussex opened up about the pain of the death of his mum, who died in a car crash in August 1997 when he was just 12.

    Speaking in his new documentary The Me You Can't See, Harry addressed traumatic memories from his childhood – including the moment he was photographed with his brother, uncle and grandfather walking behind Diana's coffin at her funeral.

    The 36-year-old also expressed his frustration that the country grieved for his mother, despite not knowing her personally at all.

    CHARLES SAID HARRY WOULD 'SUFFER', DUKE CLAIMS

    Prince Harry has accused his family of showing "total neglect" for his mental health woes and claims dad Charles made him "suffer" in his new bombshell documentary.

    The Duke blasted his own dad Charles – saying he did little to help him through his struggles.

    "My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you.'," Harry said.

    "That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite.

    "If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids."

    HARRY WAS ‘WORRIED’ TO RETURN FOR PHILIP’S FUNERAL

    Prince Harry has said he was “afraid” to return to the UK for Prince Philip’s funeral but “used coping skills from therapy to get through”.

    In the doc, Harry revealed he feared flying to Britain for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, who died aged 99 last month, would “trigger” his past trauma.

    But he said he had been helped through the emotionally difficult time by years of therapy.

    The duke said: “I was worried about it. I was afraid about it.

    “But then going through the motions and being able to lean on the toolbox, and lean on the learnings that I’ve grown from over the past, it definitely made it a lot easier. But the heart still pounds. That’s a trigger, just like it is for anybody else.”

    HARRY SAYS SOME OF ARCHIE’S FIRST WORDS WERE ‘GRANDMA DIANA’

    Prince Harry has revealed some of his son Archie’s first words were “grandma Diana”.

    Harry said of his mum: “I wish she could have met Meghan. I wish she was around for Archie.

    “I’ve got a photo up in his nursery… and it was one of the first words that he said. Apart from ‘mama’, ‘papa’, it was then ‘grandma’, ‘grandma Diana’.

    “It’s the sweetest thing but at the same time makes me really sad.”

    HARRY ADMITS TO ‘DRINKING A WEEK’S WORTH IN ONE DAY’

    Prince Harry has admitted to taking drugs and regularly “drinking a week’s worth of alcohol in one day” to “mask something”.

    The Prince says he was never given the space or the time to really mourn his mother’s death, and that led him to eventually try drinking and drugs to numb his lingering pain.

    Harry said he would try to “feel less” of what he was feeling and would abstain from drinking all week and then drink “a week’s worth” in one sitting as a coping mechanism.

    “I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling”, the Duke admits.

    “But I slowly became aware that, okay, I wasn’t drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week’s worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night. And I would find myself drinking, not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something."

    'DECEITFUL': PRINCE WILLIAM'S REACTION TO BBC PANORAMA SCANDAL IN FULL AS FUTURE KING SLAMS NATIONAL BROADCASTER

    Prince William emphatically slammed the BBC for the Martin Bashir interview and its fallout last night, insisting: “They let down mum, her family and the British public.”

    Welcoming Lord Dyson’s bombshell report into how Bashir conned Diana into giving the 1995 interview, and the corporation’s cover-up into his behaviour, William said: “The findings are extremely concerning.

    “It is my view that the deceitful way the interview was obtained substantially influenced what my mother said. The interview was a major contribution to making my parents’ relationships worse. And has since hurt countless others.

    “It brings indescribable sadness to know that the BBC’s failures contributed significantly to her fear, paranoia and isolation that I remember from those final years with her.

    “But what saddens me most, is that if the BBC had properly investigated the complaints and concerns first raised in 1995, my mother would have known that she had been deceived. She was failed not just by a rogue reporter, but by leaders at the BBC who looked the other way rather than asking the tough questions.”

    PAUL BURRELL CLAIMS QUEEN TOLD DIANA TO DIVORCE CHARLES FOLLOWING BASHIR INTERVIEW

    The Queen is said to have sent a strongly-worded letter to Princess Diana telling her she should divorce Prince Charles, according to Di’s butler.

    The letter was sent a few weeks after Diana gave her 1995 tell-all interview with Martin Bashir saying there were “three of us” in her marriage, referring to Charles’s affair with Camilla.

    Princess Diana’s butler Paul Burrell said a royal messenger arrived at her front door carrying a letter in the Queen’s handwriting bearing the House of Windsor crest.

    Paul said: “It is a myth that the Princess wanted a divorce. She never wanted a divorce, but just a separation.

    “Princess Diana showed me a letter one day which was sent by The Queen. It was a letter of Royal crest of Windsor Castle. It was very obvious to make out that was from the Queen. It was in the Queen’s hand and her writing was shocking.”

      QUEEN MAY ‘NEVER SEE ARCHIE AGAIN

      A royal expert has warned there is a “very real danger the Queen will never see grandson Archie again”.

      Her Majesty, 95, has not seen Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s two-year-old son since they moved to Canada in November 2019.

      Archie has not seen any of his British relatives since he was six months old, and royal author Phil Dampier said the young tot may never see the Queen again.

      Phil told Fabulous: “I think there is a very real danger the Queen will never see Archie again or never see her new great granddaughter which is tragic.

      “I can’t see how when they [Meghan and Harry] go on about compassion and family problems but don’t let their grandfather or great-grandmother see Archie.”

      ‘ULTIMATUM’ OVER MEGHAN’S SECOND BABY SHOWER

      Prince Harry reportedly told Meghan Markle to keep a baby shower for their daughter a secret after her £300k New York extravaganza two years ago sparked a fierce backlash.

      Meghan, 39, is pregnant with her and 36-year-old Harry’s second child, a sister to their two-year-old son Archie.

      However she reportedly gave Harry an “ultimatum” and said she deserved a baby shower after the “hell” of Megxit. The pair have agreed to keep any party a secret, Who claimed in Australia.

      The unnamed source alleged: “[Meghan] did agree with Harry though that the details of her event shouldn’t get out.

      “She figured a private but luxurious shower with just her mum and a few close friends who’ve been in her isolation bubble, in the backyard of their house with a few animals for the kids to play with, could be just what the doctor ordered.”

      PANORAMA SAYS IT HAS SEEN CONFIDENTIAL BBC DOCUMENTS THAT SHOW HOW BASHIR MISLED HIS BOSSES

      Panorama now says it has seen a confidential internal BBC management document written by the outgoing head of TV Current Affairs, Tim Gardam, which shows that Bashir had misled his bosses.

      He had denied showing the fakes to anyone, before admitting that he had passed them on to Earl Spencer in order to “foster” their relationship, according to Panorama.

      Instead Lord Tony Hall, who was then the managing director of news when the interview was screened, drew up a statement for the BBC’s governors in April 1996, in which the fakes were described as just “graphics” and that Bashir, who had no explanation for why he had created them, was “even with his lapse, honest and an honourable man”.

      Former BBC governor Sir Richard Eyre says the board of governors would have insisted on a full inquiry if they had known about Bashir’s actions.

      He told the programme: “The fact that Bashir lied should have been made clear to us, but in my memory, it never was. Constitutionally we, the governors deserved at very least to be given an honest report of what was going on. We can see now that the false bank statements were the lever that opened the doors to the access to Diana. If we had known at the time, there’s no question that this would have been ruthlessly investigated, because (the governors) were very, very, very hot on a sense of propriety of the organisation

      BASHIR LIED TO DIANA TO GAIN HER ‘TRUST’

      Martin Bashir had told the Princess and Earl Spencer that she was being followed – as well as having her telephone lines bugged – in a bid to gain her “trust.”

      Princess Diana’s penned letter reads: “Darling Carlos, I so appreciated the contents of our telephone call this morning.

      “It all makes complete sense to what is going on around me at this present time. They’ underestimate the Spencer strength! Lots of love from Duch x.”

      Speaking to the BBC for a Panorama special tonight, Earl Spencer said: “The irony is I met Martin Bashir on the 31st August 1995 because exactly two years later she died and I do draw a line between the two events.

      “It’s quite clear from the introduction I sat in on the 19th September 1995 everybody was going to be made untrustworthy and I think Diana did lose trust in really key people.”

      EARL SPENCER: MARTIN BASHIR'S STRATEGY WAS TO MAKE ‘EVERYONE UNTRUSTWORTHY’

      Earl Spencer told Panorama that Bashir’s strategy was to make ‘everyone untrustworthy’ as a way of getting close to him and his sister.

      He said: “Bashir was very good at amplifying people’s anxieties.

      “He was very good at making you feel as though he was your friend who was going to save you in a difficult and dangerous world.”

      PRINCE HARRY SLAMS ‘CULTURE OF EXPLOITATION AND UNETHICAL PRACTICES’ THAT TOOK PRINCESS DIANA’S LIFE

      Prince Harry has slammed the “culture of exploitation and unethical practices” that took Princess Diana’s life following the BBC Panorama scandal.

      The Duke of Sussex responded to Lord Dyson’s damning report on Diana’s interview, saying: “The ripple effect of a culture of exploitation and unethical practices ultimately took her life.”

      Prince Harry said tonight: “Our mother was an incredible woman who dedicated her life to service. She was resilient, brave, and unquestionably honest.

      “The ripple effect of a culture of exploitation and unethical practices ultimately took her life. To those who have taken some form of accountability, thank you for owning it.

      “That is the first step towards justice and truth. Yet what deeply concerns me is that practices like these – and even worse- are still widespread today. Then, and now, it’s bigger than one outlet, one network, or one publication. Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed. By protecting her legacy, we protect everyone, and uphold the dignity with which she lived her life. Let’s remember who she was and what she stood for.”

      EYE-ROLLING OVER DUCHESS’S BABY SHOWER

      Buckingham Palace aides “rolled their eyes” when discussing Meghan Markle’s “common” first baby shower, the author of Finding Freedom claimed.

      Meghan celebrated her pregnancy by flying to New York by private jet in 2019 to have a five-day baby shower celebration – which was slammed as “trashy.”

      Meghan and her closest friends partied at The Mark hotel in Manhattan – in one of the world’s most expensive suites.

      The shower was hosted by Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney and Genevieve Hillis, who has been Meghan’s best friend since they were teens.

      Speaking in the Channel 4 documentary A Very Royal Baby: From Cradle to Crown, Omid Scobie claimed: “I remember speaking to a palace aide at the time who rolled their eyes. They were horrified that something so common was happening within the House of Windsor.”

      EARL SPENCER: DIANA DIED WITHOUT ANY REAL FORM OF PROTECTION

      Earl Spencer said: “The irony is I met Martin Bashir on the 31st of August 1995, because exactly two years later she died. And I do draw a line between the two events. 

      “It’s quite clear from the introduction that I sat in on the 19th of September 1995 everyone was going to be made untrustworthy, and I think that Diana did lose trust in really key people. 

      “This is a young girl in her mid-30s who has lived this extraordinarily turbulent and difficult time in the public eye. 

      “She didn’t know who to trust and in the end, when she died two years later, she was without any form of real protection.”
