During a sit down with ITV’s host Tom Bradby, prince Harry made comments that has triggered a string of questions and curiosity, he also gave an interview to US broadcaster CBS.
The interviews will be aired in January 8, just two days ahead of Harry’s autobiography release.
Prince Harry said he would like to have his father and his brother back, during the interview, just a few days to the release of his new book ‘Spare’.
The exempted royal member also commented that, “they’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile,” although whoever he is referring to is not clear.
So far, Buckingham Palace has declined to comment.
Speaking to CBS News ’60 Minutes’ journalist Anderson Cooper, in a chat the broadcaster described as ‘explosive’, Prince Harry claims he was ‘betrayed’ with ‘briefings, leakage and, planting of stories against me and my wife’.
The mysterious prince further noted that, “The family motto is ‘never complain, never explain’, but it’s just a motto”.
“They will feed or have a conversation with a correspondent, and that correspondent will literally be spoon-fed information and write the story, and at the bottom of it, they will say they have reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment.
“But the whole story is Buckingham Palace commenting.
“So when we’re being told for the last six years, ‘we can’t put a statement out to protect you’, but you do it for other members of the family, there becomes a point when silence is betrayal.” Harry noted.
ITV said its interview will cover Prince Harry’s personal relationships and ‘never-before-heard details’ surrounding the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.
Filmed in California where Harry and meghan live, the ITV sit down will also see what Harry refer to as ‘the leaking and the planting’ of stories, before adding, ‘I want a family, not an institution’.
“They feel as though it is better to keep us somehow as the villains,” he adds.The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.
Prince Harry’s autobiography ‘Spare’, which is expected to give details about disagreements with his brother Prince William, will be released on 10 January.
Publisher Penguin Random House describes it as “a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”.
The autobiography follows the release of Netflix documentary Harry and Meghan, in which Prince Harry said it was “terrifying” to have his brother “scream and shout” at him during a summit to discuss the couple’s future in the Royal Family. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the claims made in the programme.
The Sussex duke and Princess also talked about why they decided to give up royal duties and move to the US, criticising the British press and the inner workings of the royal institution.
