Meghan Markle is behind Prince Harry’s attacks on the royal family, the wayward prince suggested in a podcast interview.
“My wife had the most amazing explanation … you don’t need to be a princess, you can create the life that will be better than any princess,” Harry told Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert.” And that’s coming from her own lived experience.”
Harry suggested Meghan’s comments completely changed his view of royal life, The Sun reported. That set him up for the situation he’s in now, publicly criticizing his family, including sniping about Prince Charles’ parenting skills during the podcast.
The younger son of Charles and Princess Diana compared his royal life to “The Truman Show,” and suggested growing up in palaces, being waited on hand and foot and attending the world’s top schools was “like being an animal at the zoo.”
The comments have not gone over well. Many pointed to apparent hypocrisy in the amount of publicity Harry and Meghan have sought since their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, which reportedly left Prince Charles “fuming.“
“How many more times is this spoiled brat going to publicly trash the Dad who’s bankrolled him his entire life?” Piers Morgan tweeted after the interview was released.
