Prince William fears Harry may ‘go too far with his truth bombs’ and further damage relations with the Royal Family
- A friend said William was disappointed and ‘greatly concerned’ about Harry
- Harry’s criticism of his family on Friday less pointed than previous appearance
- Spoke about perceived lack of support for his wife Meghan as she struggled
Prince William fears his brother’s ‘truth-bombing’ will go a step too far and further damage relations with the Royal Family.
A friend told The Mail on Sunday that William was disappointed and ‘greatly concerned’ after Prince Harry’s latest fusillade about the perceived lack of support for his wife Meghan when she was struggling with her mental health.
Harry’s criticism of his family during a 95-minute episode of his TV programme The Me You Can’t See with Oprah Winfrey on Friday was less pointed than in a previous appearance to promote the series – or during the controversial interview he and Meghan gave to the US chat show host in March.

But he did appear to snipe at his family by referring to the ‘shame’ felt by relatives when confronted with mental health problems.
‘As parents, as siblings, certainly from what I’ve learned, there’s an element of shame we feel because we’re like, “How could we not have seen it?”
‘But we all know when people are suffering and people are struggling that we’re all incredibly good at covering it up,’ he told the actress Glenn Close, who was a guest in the episode.

In his earlier appearance he accused Prince Charles of leaving him alone to suffer the trauma of the death of his mother, Princess Diana. ‘My father used to say to both William and I, “Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you,” ’ he claimed.
‘That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer. In fact, quite the opposite.’
A source said last night that there were ‘concerns rather than fears’ at Buckingham Palace that Harry and heavily pregnant wife Meghan will make further allegations.
