Harry’s claims he never went on bike rides with dad Charles debunked as childhood snaps emerge

Prince Harry's claims he never went on bike rides with his dad have been debunked after snaps emerged of him pedalling with Charles.

The Duke of Sussex made the remarks during the bombshell chat he and wife Meghan Markle had with Oprah Winfrey in March.

He said: "To have outdoor space where I can go for walks with Archie and go for walks as a family and with the dogs.

"All of these things are just—I guess the highlight for me is sticking him on the back of a bicycle in his little baby seat and taking him on bike rides which is something I was never able to do when I was young.

"I can seat him on the back and he's got his arms out and he's like 'woah'."

But unearthed pictures show a number of occaisions Harry, 36, was on a bike with his dad.

In one, at Sandringham in 1990, he is in a seat on the back of Prince Charles' bicycle, with his brother William pedalling along beside them.

And in a much older black and white snap, Charles is seen towing a small Prince Harry in a cart off the back of his bike near Balmoral Castle.

It comes after Harry insisted that the explosive Oprah interview, was done "compassionately" to leave room for reconciliation with his family.

The Duke said that he was speaking the "truth" in a way that he hopes will allow for healing after the explosive CBS interview.

His documentary The Me You Can't See comes just ten-and-a-half weeks after Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview aired - but features a new slew of complaints aimed at the royals.

In the new footage, the Duke touched on his "authentic" interview with Oprah in March - and he believes there is still an opening for healing with his family despite the bombshells.

He said: "I like to think that we were able to speak truth in the most compassionate way possible therefore leaving an opening for reconciliation and healing.

"The interview was about being real, being authentic, and hopefully sharing an experience that we know is relatable to people around the world, despite our unique privileged position."

Harry claims he felt compelled to step away from the Royal Family as he was "controlled through fear" and told not to talk about his "trauma".

The Me You Can't See episode also saw Harry claim he had been neglected by his family.

Harry opened up about his struggles with his mental wellbeing and claimed Charles left him to "suffer" amid "total neglect" for his mental health.

He also spoke about Meghan's struggles with mental health - and said the palace was at fault for making her "cry into her pillow" at night after the royal couple recorded their interview with Oprah earlier this year.
