Last night, Prince Harry’s relationship with the Royal Family was said to be ‘hanging by a thread’ after he dropped yet another nuclear “truth bomb,” accusing them of “total neglect,” “bullying,” and even a defamation campaign against his wife.
The Duke of Sussex opened up on how the death of his mother, Princess Diana, affected his mental health and how the monarchy refused to support him and his partner, Meghan Markle, when they were both serving in the family.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, he accused the royal family of “total neglect” and said that his father, Prince Charles, caused him to “suffer” in the face of the media as a child.
In the run-up to their initial tell-all interview with Ms Winfrey in March, he said the monarchy and the press tried to “smear” Meghan Markle.
Meghan shared her deepest feelings with Harry, and “the practicalities” about how she had imagined ending her life, according to the documentary.
‘I felt completely helpless. I thought my family would help – but every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, just got met with total silence or total neglect.’
In addition, Harry implied that his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was hounded to death because she was dating “someone that wasn’t white” – Dodi Fayed. Last night, Buckingham Palace and Clarence House maintained a ‘dignified silence’ on the allegations, according to reports.
“History was repeating itself. My mother was chased to her death while she was in a relationship with someone that wasn’t white.
“And now look at what’s happened. You want talk about history repeating itself, they’re not gonna stop until she dies,” he said.
The duke spoke candidly on a variety of subjects, including his dislike of paparazzi and his decision to undergo therapy.
Among the most shocking developments from the series was Harry’s admission that “no one” in the royal family had spoken about Diana’s death and his outrage that “no justice” had been served.
He also expressed his frustration with the intense focus on his and Meghan’s relationship, claiming that his calls for the royal family to intervene were unanswered.
“I thought my family would help, but every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, just got met with total silence or total neglect,” he told Winfrey.
Harry said he was stuck in the monarchy and that Meghan had assisted him in realizing this and escaping to the United States.
The couple have said that a senior royal had challenged the skin color of their unborn son Archie, and that the Duchess was barred from finding treatment for her mental health.
In a stoic comment after the Oprah interview, the Queen said that “recollections may vary” in regards to the allegations, but that she was eager to sort it out privately as a family.
According to one royal aide, the Queen’s comment is still valid.
After the latest interview, another source told the newspaper that their relationships were “hanging by a thread”
According to the Daily Mail, Harry and the royal family’s relationship is now “hanging by a thread,” and they are “struggling” to grasp his motivations for speaking out on his mental health.
They were quoted as saying, “Everyone is struggling to understand what he gets from, or hopes to achieve, by interventions like this.”
“It is perfectly possible to campaign effectively on the issue of mental health without talking in such intimate detail about his own experiences.”
The entire five-episode The Me You Can’t See sequence, which is part televised therapy session, part self-help guide, and part confessional, was released yesterday.
An source told the New York Post earlier this week that it includes a series of “truth bombs.”
Harry was mentioned as an executive producer alongside Oprah Winfrey, who had landed the lucrative Apple contract in the first place. It also featured videos of Harry at his mother’s funeral and her being hunted by paparazzi as a young adult, as well as huge portions of him conversing with the talk show host.
However, Harry said in the documentary that he is speaking out because he wants to put an end to the cycle that his father, Prince Charles, used to tell him and his brother, William, was inevitable.
“It’s incredibly triggering to lose another woman in my life,” the duke said. “The list is growing. And it all comes back to the same people, the same business model, the same industry.
“Because 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 gonna be like that for you.’”
In his latest film, the Duke describes how his wife told him of her suicidal feelings, including the “practicalities” about how she planned to end her life.
He said, “I felt completely helpless. I thought my family would help – but every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, just got met with total silence or total neglect.”
He said he can still hear the sound of the horses’ hooves in his ears, after being evidently traumatized from having to walk behind her coffin.
He said it was his wife who convinced him to seek professional help following a row in which she said he had regressed to his 12-year-old self – the age in which he lost his mother. This included Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
One of the main reasons he left the UK was the fear of losing his wife and having to raise Archie alone, he said.
