Queen 'gobsmacked' as Harry's Apple TV show paints 'very negative picture' of Royals


    The Duke of Sussex spoke extensively about his struggles with mental health in the series, The Me You Can’t See, with co-presenter Oprah Winfrey. Harry described how he and Meghan Markle felt “completely helpless” as royals, alleging they were met with “total silence or total neglect” whenever they asked for help.

    According to the Daily Mail, a source said Her Majesty and Prince Charles are “absolutely gobsmacked” by Harry’s comments on the show.

    Sources told the publication the senior royal circle have perceived Harry’s remarks as a “personal attack on his father and the institution”.

    A source told the Daily Mail: “Those around the Queen and Prince Charles are absolutely gobsmacked by what has happened.

    “No one within the Palace circles has anything but sympathy for Harry’s trauma and troubled life, but there is upset and discomfort at him sharing it on an international television show.

    “We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job.”

    Harry also told Ms Winfrey he would “never be bullied into silence”.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped back from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family in March 2020 to become financially independent.

    In February it was confirmed that the couple would not be returning as working royals.
