Damage is done: Prince Harry warned rift with Prince Charles is widening beyond repair



Prince Harry has been warned that divide between him and his father has “widened”.


The message was sent to the Duke of Sussex in a recent TV documentary that aired over the weekend.


Last week, the Duke of Sussex slammed his father’s parenting skills, saying he came to the United States to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain” from his own childhood.



His remarks came only two months after he told Oprah Winfrey that he was “disappointed” in his father, whom he said had cut him off financially and declined to answer his phone calls.


In addition, Harry said that Charles and his brother Wills were “trapped” in their royal duties, and that his relationship with his brother was one of “space.”


Following the Duke’s face-to-face interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry’s relationship with his father, the Prince of Wales, has been strained to the breaking point. According to a new royal documentary released by Channel 5, Harry’s remarks during the historic interview “may have hurt those closest to him.”


In ‘Charles & Harry: Father and Son Divided,’ royal experts and close aides address the harm done to Prince Charles’ relationship with his youngest son, Prince Harry.


“There is no doubt the gulf between Harry and Charles had widened considerably,” royal author Tom Quinn said.


“I mean I think if they are not careful it will be very difficult to bridge that divide in future.”


“I can’t see how they can do it.”


Mr Quinn’s fear is shared by Palace figures who have extensive knowledge of Prince Charles and Harry’s once close relationship.


Though Harry told Oprah that “time heals all things”, Grant Harrold, a retired royal butler, said, “The damage is done”.


“And that makes me sad,” he said in the show, “because the relationship that I knew which was a loving, caring, fun relationship can never be like that again.”


Following Prince Harry’s exceptional claims on his podcast, Prince Charles’ relationship with his father, the Duke of Sussex, has been in the spotlight.


Harry, 36, told host Dax Shephard that his father, 72, “suffered” as a result of the Queen and Philip’s parenting, and then “treated me the way he was treated.”


“I verbalise it, which is, ‘Isn’t life about breaking the cycle’?


“There’s no blame, I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.


“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’.”


He also admitted that when he was in his twenties, he wanted to leave his royal duties and compared royal life to a cross between The Truman Show and living in a zoo.


Prince Harry’s new interview drew backlash, and now a royal expert says it’s “hurtful” to his family.


“I think that Prince Harry’s latest broadside is a disgrace and is truly hurtful to the royal family specially William, Charles and the Queen,” Charles Rae, a former royal editor at The Sun, told Entertainment Daily!


“Following the equally appalling interview with Oprah Winfrey it was thought there would be some bridge building to repair the damage from that fall out, but this is a strange way for Harry to build a bridge.”


“I cannot see how relationships between Harry and the family can ever be repaired,” Mr Rae added.


“Harry has turned into a petulant Prince who deserted Britain to escape his life of privilege and to have privacy.


“This is a strange way of being private. He has not stopped giving interviews.



“The recent podcast with Dax Shepard is Harry using a machine gun approach to further cause distress to the Royal family.


“He even managed to upset the citizens of his adopted country by criticising the First Amendment which protects free speech and the press and he described it as bonkers.


“Talk about biting the hand that is now feeding you! Harry really does need to shut up now.”

    Why don’t the royals just leave Harry alone he is just as good as the rest only he was not afraid to say what he feel he know how his dear mother was treated by the queen and Charles so that’s his way of saying what he needs to say now that he is a grown man and I hope he will not feel guilty of saying what he feels ,may Harry continue to be blessed by God stage happy and safe

      Get serious. He is being snowed by the D actress and the once admired Oprah. She is like a cult leader now with only her own interests in her sights. Hollywood will destroy Harry. Of course MM will play victim

      It’s the other way round, given that Harry absolutely refuses to leave the Royal Family alone and live the private life he says he craves to live.

        And that is the absolute truth. Harry is causing the rift and one day he will be sorry. His family will always love him, no doubt about that, but will they ever trust him again? Not hardly or it will take a long long time.

      He is just a petulant, spoiled brat, just because the RF criticised him! Look at the life he has led? Stay in the US Harry – good place for you. You and MM make a good pair!

      Thank you Verda my sentiment exactly. Harry has repeatedly said “It is not about blame ,that word is very controversial , it’s about responsibility . If we decide to have children we ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR WELL-BEING . Nothing Harry is saying , has not been spoken of already in public except how he feels and how it affected his life, and I feel Harry has turned into a very mature responsible parent , who doesn’t want his children to suffer like he feels he has .All His father has to do is hold his head up high and admit he could have made mistakes that cause others to feel hurt. Confession is good for the soul.

        Yes I think breaking bad cycles are good. However Charles had a hands on relationship with both his sons, Diana and he both loved the boys and Charles gave lots of love. Life was different when Charles grew up and he made sure he gave to his sons he did no have. He also had tiggy-legge Burke their nanny stay as well whom also showered love on them. It is sad that he met MM as she has primed him and made him believe the worst as she is a huge manipulater I think the family should just them totally off, cut off sour grapes, cut their titles let them live their lives, let him spout the lies or what she has made him believe, that can only be headlines for a while. Harry has grown far to big for his britches. I was a huge supporter of his mother, and her boys I am mega disappointed now in Harry, she did have an axe to grind he did not, it’s that D actress giving him all this bull to spout, so sad they could have just left stayed private, done their own thing, made their millions enjoyed the privileges that had been bestowed mostly on her. All this could have been avoided this helps no one, she lied so much in that Oprah interview you know she has a huge hand in what he says and does. Harry just shut up!!!! You have what you want give it a rest.

        What on earth is ” genetic pain”???
        This little parasite invented the phrase because Daddy wouldn’t give him a few million in pocket money!
        Nor is he isn’t man enough to tell his self serving wife to pull her head in and shut up … I won’t even mention the level to which Oprah has sunk in perpetrating this whole damn thing.
        None of them … Harry, Meghan or Oprah can stand proud.

      The Royals are not doing anything to Harry. Harry is doing it to himself. No one needs to tell the whole world about problems in their immediate family. That’s a disgrace. Harry should have left as he wanted, moved to where he wanted and lived his life privately as he said he wanted and keep his mouth shut.

        My question is, why he waited so long to leave? Why did he not leave the kingdom as he wished for at age twenty as he said? Or maybe at age 18? And why would they like for their children to have titles? If the children have titleship, they will also be trapped in the kingdom right? And since harry is living now outside the kingdom and not working as royalty can the crown has the right to stop him using his title prince if cannot take it away altogether?

      The Royals HAVE left Harry alone.. it’s woke Harry that won’t leave them alone.. Harry is being led by a very sick, cruel, revengeful Meghan who didn’t get what she wanted. Harry is being manipulated to be JEalous if his brother. So sad that he let a woman who doesn’t her sling with any of her family do that same thing to him!!

      Harry needs to stop being a man/child and grow up! His mom died over 20+ years ago. He needs to get over It and stop airing out his personal problems to the world for money!

      As it is Harry that keeps stirring resentment and bad feeling I fail to see how you could, logically, make the statements you have.
      Harry complained about being “cut of without a penny” whilst receiving 12 million from his mum AND 10 million from his great granny AND “wages” Charles paid out of his own resources. Ingratious clown!
      Wake up.

      Since he is so unhappy living at the kingdom, he needs to give up the rights of using prince since he is not living there anymore and finished critizing all of them. He don’t have the rights to use his title to make money .
      When time comes for the queen to leave this Earth, he should be ashamed to himself to attend the last good-bye like the way he did philip.why did he go if he is unhappy and in return disrespect the person. Who loved him as his own?

      Leave Harry alone?? Harry and Meghan have been talking trash about the family whenever possible. The worst response has been they are disappointed in how he feels. As I recall, when Meghan’s father and sister talked against her she lashed out with one vindictive allegation after another. Harry, A 36 year old man, is upset his father is stopping his allowance ? They wanted to be on their own but still receive pay from the family? Meghan’s whole plan to invade Royals and be a star failed so, as is her nature, she lashes out with lies to get even. Sadly, Harry is a weak person and was manipulated to the point he has forfeited his family and heritage for the Hollywood bimbo.

    Perhaps the fraudulent pair would be happier in another country such as Iran. They don’t have a first amendment

    We always say blood is thicker then water, but I think in Harry’s case he really over stepped the mark. He will regret one day. But it will be to late.

    Shame on Harry. He shouldn’t be airing family problems in public. His first mistake was marrying MM…..she is not the wife for him. It’s just for publicity. As a mother and grandmother I can imagine just how the RF feels. It’s time to GROW UP HARRY>

    I think he’s entitled to say whatever he likes. However, he has to accept the consequences of his comments. I believe he should have his his wife Anson’s titles taken from him so he can have the total freedom of the average person. This is what the vast majority of the British and Commonwealth population wants.

    To achieve good mental health it is important to face the truth and speak up. That is what Harry is doing. He’s confronting and sharing his pain. If his family are so callous and cold to his suffering then they bring it upon themselves to be ostracized by society and hopefully one day they come down to the level of ordinary citizens and Chuck all this pageantry and pomp and secrecy for a more loving and inclusive family life where they support each other.

    Harry is a spoiled petulent child married to an ambitious, controlling, domineering, social climber. Now, with two kids, Harry is doomed for the remainder of his life and will never have the ‘freedom in life’ he THINKS he wants. Harry is immature, whiny, & selfish and needs to GROW-UP EMOTIONALLY, AS WELL AS MENTALLY!! BE A MAN FOR A CHANGE!!!

    Why doesn’t Harry DUMP Oprah Winfrey? She is USING HIM AND ABUSING HIM FOR HER OWN GAIN. Harry is just to IGNORANT to realize it. Now, Dax Shepard is doing the same thing. How things are said, done and lived in England has its own way of life. Just because it may be different then the American way DOES NOT MAKE IT WRONG.

      Agreed. Mother’s background is interesting. She don’t own a home but when she had gotten married, she insisted to live in the biggest mansion in town with everything in tow for free?

    I actually listened to the Dax Shepherd podcast have a completely different perspective on what Harry said than most you. I think Harry was very genuine, thoughtful and wasn’t finger pointing at all. As for his problematic view with the 1st Amendment, he didn’t say he was against it. I think he was referring to the loopholes that the press or trolls on the internet use to pervert the law. Which is true. Just because you can say/print anything you want, doesn’t mean you should or that it is actually true. Most of the crap on the news/internet is opinion, masking as truth. It comes down to decency. Decent behavior in the press/internet has taken back seat in both the US and UK.

    I think as long as they can stay in the news & crap on the Royal Family things will be just peachy for the two. However, once people are tired of hearing their crap and they are no longer the poor put upon outcasts of the Royal Family, Megan will get bored and leave Harry. Then Harry will feel the hurt that he’s bestowing onto his blood family. I wish them luck but the reason for leaving (privacy)isn’t in Megan’s vocabulary. She loves attention, the more the better. Hopefully since she has children, and grows older, the need for all of this will stop and they can have a happy family.

    It will be interesting to see what Harry and Megan’s children will say about them. There are no perfect parents.

    Given Diana’s history, Charles’ infidelity, and the antiquated protocols of the “firm” there is evidence for Harry’s position and such extreme mental suffering should elicit compassion. Perhaps he needn’t be so public in his remarks, but obviously when he wasn’t no one was listening, just like no one listened to Diana or Fergie or Charles for that matter. The royals could end public airing of their family life by prioritizing the emotional suffering of their cohort.

    Harry knows he has dug a hole for himself.He knows it’s too big to climb out of,so he has decided, ‘might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb.”William had to face his mothers death too,he had spent more yrs with her,but doesn’t criticize and pull the family apart because of it.He also has a huge responsibility in being the future King,he has happily given his all to the future ahead of him ,and is preparing very well.Harry meanwhile has nothing to give up, just to sit back and enjoy the sun and the
    glitz and glamour,which M M.clearly adores.Tinsel town is just the place for them.Let’s hope they can stop complaining and whining,and move onn Ihonestly believe MM is very jealous of William ,and Catherine and is putting great pressure on Harry to Dismantle what she can’t have.A very unstable and dangerous woman.
