Prince Harry has been told that he should be aware of the consequences of his actions on the mental health of Queen Elizabeth.
As the Duke of Sussex has been openly talking about his emotional struggles of being born into the royal family, a royal expert said that he's also exploiting his experiences to promote his work in America. By publicly going about his anguish as a royal, Harry has been impacting this grandmother, the head of the British monarchy, and his father, Prince Charles, who will be the next to rule as the king.
Royal expert Camilla Tominey said that while Harry's American audience is receptive to the fact that he's showing he is vulnerable, "damaged, disenfranchised" side because of his family, his confessions will bear weight on the queen and Charles.
Harry has been publicly talking about his mental health as a royal under the spotlight as he is set to launch his new mental health series with Oprah Winfrey on Apple TV+. According to the royal expert, it looks like Harry will reveal more bombshells in the future as he said he's no longer concerned about the criticisms or withdrawing from the limelight as it's more important for him to speak out for his well-being.
It comes as Harry and Winfrey released the teaser for their new program, The Me You Can't See, where the narrator emphasized on "treating people with dignity." According to royal commentator Katie Nicholl, the British people think that the Duke of Sussex has overstepped when he started talking about his complaints with his family.
Meanwhile, Harry's biographer Angela Levin believes he is risking damage to his relationship with the royal family, especially his father. Levin recalled that it was Charles who arranged for his second son to meet his favorite girl group, the Spice Girls when he was 12 years old. It showed how much a father tried to please his son after losing his mother a few years before that.
Levin also said that Queen Elizabeth has not been the same since losing her husband, Prince Philip, who passed away in April. So, for Harry to speak about his struggles, at the expense of his grandmother, is "ruthlessly cruel."
The royal expert also said that Prince Harry's actions are deliberate but Levin believes the Duke of Sussex has been brainwashed. Another biographer, Robert Jobson, called Harry's actions a "petty shameless behavior."
