It’s being reported the Prince Harry lied to his grandmother the Queen about the subject of his documentary series with Oprah Winfrey in Apple TV+, claiming that it would focus on veterans.
Sources are saying that both the Queen and his father, Prince Charles, were “absolutely gobsmacked” by their relative’s latest revelations that his family neglected him and his wife.
Initially it had been implied that the documentary, that Harry’s grandmother and father had signed off on in 2018, would focus more on military veterans and their struggles, not himself and continuing his attacks again the family.
“Those around the Queen and Prince Charles are absolutely gobsmacked by what has happened,” a source close to Buckingham Palace told The Daily Mail in an exclusive report.
“It is a question of trust, and honestly any of that is hanging by a thread at the moment.
“No one within the Palace circles has anything but sympathy for Harry’s trauma and troubled life, but there is upset and discomfort at him sharing it on an international television show.
“Certainly the intimate detail of his hardships paint a very negative picture of his family and upbringing. Many people have a different view.”
And so does Harry, who’s struggled to keep up with his own changing stories regarding his and his wife’s mental health.
In the documentary, Harry 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.”
However, Harry told Oprah in his interview with wife Meghan in March that he didn’t tell his family that she was supposedly suicidal. So, did they neglect her or was he neglecting his wife? It’s unclear.
The news reports and criticism about the couple were no doubt difficult, but that’s what it means to be part of the royal family. Getting taxpayer funded lifestyle and staff comes with a certain level of scrutiny, and the people have the right to question if a $100,000 maternity dress for a single foreign engagement is appropriate and a good use of taxpayer money.
If this latest story is true, it also calls into question when or if the royal family will ever reconcile with the fresh prince of Montecito. When trust is broken, royal or not, it’s challenging to rebuild the relationship.
