Prince Harry criticised by Kate Garraway for remarks about Prince Charles

Kate Garraway has taken aim at Prince Harry after he made comments about his father Prince Charles in a new podcast.

The Good Morning Britain presenter has said Harry’s remarks will have a “devastating impact” and that she’s not sure he knows how damaging his words can be.

On this morning’s show, Kate and her co-host Ben Shepherd were discussing the comments Harry made about his life in the royal family which he compared to “a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo”.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle decided to step back from the royal family last year and moved to Los Angeles with their young son Archie.

And Kate and Ben spoke about the comments made during the podcast interview.

Kate said: “He is very young isn’t he, Archie? And the other one is not with us yet.

“I wonder whether when they begin to challenge him – which is the job of the child, it’s certainly the job of the teenager.

“To break away in as brutal way as possible and so he will have it come back at him.”

“Because we have had people say to us already, ‘What does he mean about the cycle of pain?

“And of course we know pain is pain, it might be a different sort of it, but it’s still difficult.

“He is telling his story but it instantly sounds entitled, and it sounds without empathy, doesn’t he?”
