Prince Harry is pleased with the outcome of his interviews, where he has opened up about his struggles as a member of the royal family.
According to royal commentator Katie Nicholl, the Duke of Sussex feels that his talk with Oprah Winfrey and his most recent podcast with Dax Shepard have "gone down well." Harry is also very aware that his revelations will shock the British people and earn a backlash from the British press.
Royal biographer and expert Ingrid Seward also believes that Prince Harry does not regret publicly talking about his indignance for his royal life. Seward said that Harry has all the intentions to rock the boat and is not the least bit surprised about the shocked reactions from the U.K.
In both interviews, Harry expressed his disappointment at his father, Prince Charles, after the latter cut off the Duke and Duchess of Sussex financially. He also blamed Charles' parenting style for his mental health issues, implying that since his father did not benefit from good parenting, he was also not a good parent to him and Prince William.
Harry also compared his royal life to the zoo and being on The Truman Show. He reiterated yet again that the reason he quit this life was so he could find peace and stop the cycle of pain and suffering so his children will not grow up in this environment.
Harry's most recent statement about the future king of England, as well as his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, had senior aides at Buckingham Palace calling for the removal of his title, as well as his wife's title.
The royal courtiers said that they are bewildered about Harry's disgraceful betrayal of his own family, especially towards his grandfather beyond the grave. They said if Harry dislikes the royal institution so much then he should stop using Duke of Sussex. Harry and Markle have only agreed not to use HRH (His/Her Royal Highnesses) next to their names.
However, royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes that Prince Harry felt regretful and embarrassed by his revelations and is feeling more confused than ever about what he wants for his life. Larcombe said he has insider sources who indicated that Harry felt "numb" after his brief return to London for his grandfather's funeral since he has damaged the royal family. The Duke of Sussex is due back home in the summer for the unveiling of his mother's statue but his plans to reunite with William for this event have yet to be ironed out.
