Prince Harry has admitted he wanted to leave the royal family when he was in his 20s and has described royal life as a "mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo" in his latest shot at the monarchy.

In an interview with US podcaster Dax Shepard, the Duke of Sussex also spoke candidly about "genetic pain and suffering" passed on from his father Prince Charles, who he suggested suffered from his own parents, Prince Philip and the Queen.

Harry joined the The Armchair Expert podcast to discuss his own approach to mental health issues and "growing up with privilege".

The podcast appearance comes two months after an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey — in which Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, accused the royal family of racism — and just a month after the death of his grandfather, Prince Philip.

Harry, who is expecting his second child with Meghan later this year, again took aim at Prince Charles, who he had accused of cutting him off emotionally and financially during the Oprah interview.

"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," Harry told the podcast.

"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'.

"I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go 'OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents, so that means he's treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?'."

'Grin and bear it'

Harry also opened up about his life as a working royal – a position he walked away from three months ago by informing the Queen of his and Meghan's intentions to step down and relocate permanently to the US.

He compared it to "a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo", a reference to the 1998 film featuring Jim Carey, whose character is oblivious to the fact his life is filmed and constructed for a television show.

He also touched on the death of his mother, Princess Diana, as being part of the reason he wanted to leave royal life.

"It's the job right?," he said. "Grin and bear it, get on with it.

"I was in my early twenties and I was thinking 'I don't want this job, I don't want to be here, I don't want to be doing this'.

"Look what it did to my mum. How am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family when I know it's going to happen again?"

Prince Harry and Meghan have signed a deal with Netflix to produce several documentaries around the Invictus Games, which Harry helped set up for wounded veterans to compete in sports.

 

The more Harry whines about his horrible life as a royal, the more people have disrespect for him and is "handbag". We could tell she is a domineering woman and persuaded him to leave. Now they have shown they are only interested in the almighty dollar. I read he charges 1 Million dollars for appearance on stage.  

He's going to regret those words one day, he just doesn't know it yet.

I just wish Harry would shut up.

His "I'm so hard done by" broadcasts (possibly being well paid for) whilst living in a safe multi-million dollar mansion during a worldwide pandemic in which millions have lost their lives and millions more are suffering atrocious conditions and family losses are appalling to me. 

As for dumping on his upbringing and his family, again millions have suffered much worse.

So egotistical. 

 

I feel that his grandmother and father have made too many exceptions for him because of the loss of his mother, which hasn't done anything for him. There are many harder sad situations during wars that children have had to suffer and learn to grow up!

Perhaps that is the reason he gets on with his wife so well?  They both have a chip on their shoulders?  I think they both think they have experienced everything in their short lives.

 ADVERTISEMENT Princess Michael of Kent, 76, is 'ill with blood clots' just months after suffering 'extreme fatigue and terrible fevers' during battle with coronavirus

Princess Michael of Kent, 76, has reportedly been unwell with blood clots The royal, married to Queen's cousin, is said to have been ill for nearly a month A source claimed Princess Michael has 'sought medical attention' amid concern It comes months after she suffered from 'extreme fatigue' during Covid battle 

 

The source told The Sun: 'It has been a worrying time for those around her. It has been difficult for those close to her to see her suffering. She's really been through it.'  

Princess Michael of Kent, 76, who is married to the Queen's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent (both pictured), has been reportedly been unwell from blood clots for nearly a month +3 

Princess Michael of Kent, 76, who is married to the Queen's first cousin Prince Michael of Kent (both pictured), has been reportedly been unwell from blood clots for nearly a month

Princess Michael's spokesman Simon Astaire told the publication: 'I cannot comment on health issues.'

MailOnline has contacted Princess Michael's representatives for comment.

The 76-year-old is understood to have had both of her Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccinations earlier this year, though no link has been established between the jabs and the blood clots.

Earlier this year, it was decided that Britons under-30 would be offered an alternative vaccine to AstraZeneca because of the higher incidence of blood clots in recipients. 

However the benefits of getting the vaccine for older people still outweighed the risks because the incidence of blood clots was so low and the risk posed by coronavirus so much higher for older age groups.  

yal was diagnosed with coronavirus last November and suffered from 'extreme fatigue and terrible fevers'. 

Simon Astaire said Princess Michael tested positive for the virus after her housekeeper 'fell ill three weeks' previously, and she and her husband remained in isolation at Kensington Palace.

Karren Brady says Prince Harry 'lost the plot' by blaming Queen for genetic pain.

Prince Harry has become "so wrapped up" in the LA experience that he can no longer see the bigger picture, Apprentice star Karren Brady has claimed.

The 36-year-old former royal has "lost the plot" and become "so blinkered" that he's now even blaming his heartache and pain on the Queen and Prince Philip's parenting and passing on their "genetic pain" through their son Prince Charles to him and his brother Prince William.

Writing in her newspaper column, Karren says we "know too much" about Harry and Meghan Markle's many grievances with the royals thanks to their recent interviews that have made global headlines - despite quitting the UK to pursue a private life out of the spotlight.

This week Harry compared his previous life to The Truman Show and living in a zoo, telling the mental health podcast Armchair Expert that he'd wanted to quit his royal duties since his early twenties after seeing "what it did to my mum" Princess Diana.

And he opened up about his new life in America, claiming he's now able to take son Archie out on the back of his bike and finally feels free.

But Karren has slammed him, pointing out in the Sun On Sunday : "There are plenty of famous people who manage to have a low-key life. And he could, after all, just buy a smaller house, stop giving interviews, stop trashing his family and live like a 'normal' millionaire, out of the public eye. That is possible if he wanted to do it."

 

 

DR MAX PEMBERTON: Why I fear Harry’s had too much therapy

 

Prince Harry spoke about his need to leave the Royal Family in an interview Max Pemberton explains characteristics of those who’ve had too much therapyNHS psychiatrist says Harry should turn difficulties into something positive

We all have things that we carry with us. Life’s slings and arrows are part of being human. That’s not to dismiss people’s suffering. Far from it. People have to endure a lot. It’s up to us, however, how we deal with it.

And certainly there are times we benefit from talking about our troubles.

At the launch of his Apple TV+ mental health series last week, Prince Harry spoke about how the ‘majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss or grief’. Well, yes, we do. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, it can actually be a force for good.

Very good article IMO.

I tend to agree with Dr Pemberton.

It's the Queen's tree-bilee! Prince Charles joins Her Majesty to plant an oak in the grounds of Windsor Castle to launch new green initiative for Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee next year

Prince Charles plants oak in the grounds of Windsor Castle to celebrate the Queen's

Prince Charles has launched Her Majesty's new green initiative celebrating her Platinum Jubilee - The Queen's Green Canopy - by planting the first tree in the grounds of Windsor Castle. An oak tree was planted by The Prince of Wales to launch a unique, UK-wide tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee next year, of which His Royal Highness is Patron. Images showing Charles planting the oak before posing with his mother in front of the tree were taken on March 23, in the aftermath of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

 

Great initiative ... good on them.
