Prince Harry is ‘losing public support’ with ‘extreme’ criticism of royals


Prince Harry is losing public support due to his ‘extreme’ criticism of the Royal Family, a commentator has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, branded Queen Consort Camilla ‘dangerous’ and ‘a villain’ in interviews promoting his upcoming memoir Spare, in which he makes several sensational claims about The Firm, including how brother Prince William injured him by pushing him onto a dog bowl on the kitchen floor. 

Despite previously speaking favourably of Meghan and Harry, Australian journalist Tom Tilley said the California-based son of King Charles risks losing his remaining public support after ‘throwing grenades’ at his family.

‘I do think the sort of the barbs thrown at Camilla, for example, show that some of it is a bit petty. We’re talking about their relationship with the media and if Camilla is “dangerous” and “a villain”, and he talked about them being the “abusers” and him being “abused”,’ he said on the Today show on Tuesday.

‘I think it has gone bit too far and he is probably losing some of the public [support] when it goes to those kind of extremes.’

Tilley, 41, added he was ‘about the same age’ as Harry and ‘feels for him’. 

‘I saw him walk behind the coffin with his brother all those years ago [at Princess Diana’s funeral] and I really feel for him and he is clearly hurting,’ he said.

‘He is still traumatised by his childhood by losing his mother, by the way the media intruded into their lives and he has felt disempowered.

‘So this has been his strategy to go all-out public and just throw grenades. I would really like to see it go behind closed doors. I just think he’s damaging his relationship with the most important people in his life.

‘I get that he had to make some kind of statement, but I think it needs to end and they need to get together behind closed doors.’

In his explosive new memoir, Harry also claims his wife Meghan Markle was left ‘on the floor sobbing’ by a row with sister-in-law Kate Middleton over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid’s dresses.

He also discusses how his penis became ‘frost nipped’ during his trip to the North Pole and revealed he is uncircumcised.

Amid other revelations, the royal confessed he took cocaine, ketamine, cannabis and Nepalese hashish temple balls and said he sought help from a medium who said she could prove she was talking to his late mother from beyond the grave because Diana was ‘giggling’ at Archie breaking an ornament of the late Queen.  

The Duke of Sussex, who was known as ‘Captain Wales’ in the military, also wrote that he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan.

He said did not think of those killed ‘as people’ but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board.

He has since declared he and Meghan will never move back to the UK and become working members of the Royal Family – just hours after using another bombshell U.S. interview to rubbish suggestions that the couple give up their official titles. 

Speaking on Good Morning America, the Duke of Sussex said: ‘I don’t think it’s ever going to be possible, I don’t think that even if there was an agreement or an arrangement between me and my family, there’s that third party that’s going to do everything they can to make sure that that isn’t possible, not stopping us from going back but making it unsurvivable.’

He continued: ‘Because that’s essentially breaking the relationship between us. There was something in the future where, you know, we can continue to support the Commonwealth that of course is on the table.’ 

In a separate interview with the CBS network, the duke swerved a question by Anderson Cooper who asked him why, given his clear antipathy to the monarchy, do he and Meghan not just renounce their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

‘And what difference would that make?’ was his only answer.

It comes as Harry’s popularity among the British public slumps to an all-time low, with a new YouGov survey finding that the Duke’s net favourability now sits at a staggering -38. 

Almost two-thirds of those polled admitted they hold a negative view of the prince, while his support among the 18-24 age group has also fallen to its lowest ever score.
