PRINCE Albert of Monaco has slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their “inappropriate” interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The country’s ruler said the couple should have shared their “dissatisfaction” with royal life “within the intimate quarters of the family”.
His comments refer to the explosive interview earlier this month in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Oprah that a member of the family had made a racist comment about their son Archie.
This was later confirmed not to be the Queen or Prince Philip – but the identity of the ‘royal racist’ remains unknown.
Harry also claimed that none of his relatives spoke out in support of Meghan following the racism he said she faced in the media.
Meghan spoke of being suicidal while in the royal family but claimed she received no help after sharing her suffering.
Prince Albert said that while he understood the pressures the couple were under, the interview did “bother” him.
Speaking to the BBC World News, he said: “I think this type of public display of dissatisfaction, these type of conversations should be held within the intimate quarters of the family.
“It doesn’t really have to be laid out in the public sphere like that.
“So it did bother me a little bit, I can understand where they’re coming from in a certain way, but I think it wasn’t the appropriate forum to be able to have these kind of discussions.”
