Prince Harry has demanded an apology from the royal family for his wife, Meghan Markle.
“You know what you did, and I now know why you did it. And you were caught off guard, so be honest,’ the Duke of Sussex sensationally told his family in an interview with The Telegraph this week.
The abrasive remarks come days after Harry, 38, released his bombshell revealing memoir, ‘Spare’, in which he went public with private family disagreements and conversations.
Harry, who claimed his family treated him as if he was “delusional and paranoid”, did not specify what exactly he wanted his family to apologize to Meghan for.
The father-of-two insists that “if people had listened to him” sooner, the rift between the Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the Royal Family wouldn’t have been so bad.
“Everything was so avoidable. But they just couldn’t help it,’ he said, referring to the royal family.
In his protocol-shattering book, Harry claims that senior members of the royal family ‘tipped off’ the press and ‘leaked’ negative stories about Markle.
Adding that he just doesn’t see how ‘shocking and outrageous’ sharing his story was, the youngest son of King Charles and the late Princess Diana said he felt ‘responsible’ to reveal the ‘truth “.
“I still feel a responsibility knowing that out of these three children, at least one will end up like me, the reserve one. And it hurts, it worries me,” he said, referring to William and Kate’s children, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4.
Prince William’s brother has also credited therapy with helping him through dark times when, he notes, he tried unsuccessfully to “move on” to his family.
“That’s when I started trying to explain to them how some of their decisions and some of the things they did – or didn’t do – were going to reflect on them. Wrong,” he told the publication.
“Especially on the world stage, especially in the Commonwealth, when it comes to my current wife. And I couldn’t reach them. And it wasn’t one or two people I was trying to reach.
“It was a state of mind. It was a culture, in a bubble within a bubble, that while I was there was unbreakable,” he added.
Harry said the company not only refused to see where he came from, but ‘sabotaged the whole plan by their need to control us financially, jealousy and this unfortunate situation in which we simply exist outside of their control is somehow problematic for them.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Harry revealed he had enough content to write even more books about his experience growing up as a royal, as he cut almost half of his content from the first draft.
In particular, the exiled royal said a lot of content about William and their father, King Charles III, had been removed from ‘Spare’ to avoid an irreparable rift.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on “Spare”.
