Good Morning UK presenter Kate Garraway has criticized the Duke of Sussex for his recent remarks about his father, Prince Charles, and beaten him for “lack of empathy”.
Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, stepped down as senior royals last year and have both been very explicit about their family challenges as newlyweds.
Most recently, Harry, the father of son Archie, two years old and traveling with a second child, spoke about his painful childhood.
On the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard, he said he wanted to be a different parent to his father, Prince Charles, and break the cycle of suffering for his own children.
Many royal observers found the new comments inappropriateness as the Prince of Wales is deeply saddened by the recent death of his father, Prince Philip.
After Harry’s new interview, Kate said, “You think he’s obviously always been in public, but do you think he almost doesn’t understand that these comments are going to have devastating effects when he says these things?
“Because people have already told us, ‘What does he mean by the cycle of pain?
“‘I grew up in a house where there was abuse. All sorts of things happened in my life.’
“And of course we know pain is pain, it could be another type of it, but it’s still difficult.
“He’s telling his story, but it immediately sounds legitimate, and it sounds without empathy, doesn’t it?”
Guest Iain Dale, who took part in the GMB debate, replied, “I think that living in the royal family has to be, in some ways, like life in a goldfish bowl.”
“Like a zoo,” agreed Kate.
On the podcast, Harry added, “There is no guilt. I don’t think we should point the finger or blame anyone.
“But when it comes to parents, I will make sure to break this cycle if I have experienced any form of pain or suffering due to the pain or suffering my father or parents may have endured, basically stop passing it on .
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that is passed on anyway, so we as parents should do our best to say, ‘You know what, this happened to me, I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen.’ t won’t happen to you. “
The royal family are still grappling with the aftermath of Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview, and Harry’s new comments, which have made more headlines, will be another blow.
Robert Jobson, a senior royal commentator, told Sunrise, an Australian breakfast show, “You have to take some of it seriously because he believes it in itself, you know, mental health is a big problem out there.
“But to keep talking about it, it’ll be embarrassing.
“To criticize not only his father’s parenting skills, but also the Queen and Prince Philip, who have just been buried, I think it smells of rather shameful behavior.”
