The Queen is reportedly 'deeply upset' by Harry's 'very personal' attacks on royal family

The Queen is said to be ‘deeply upset’ by what she considers a series of ‘very personal’ criticisms of her family by Prince Harry.

Royal sources say the Monarch has been shaken by Harry’s repeated comments since the devastating interview that he and wife Meghan gave to Oprah Winfrey in March.

One source said: ‘Harry’s grandmother has taken this very personally and is deeply upset by what Harry has said, in particular his comments about Charles’s parenting and suggesting his father knows no better because of how he was brought up. It has been a very upsetting time.’

The Mail on Sunday last week revealed mounting fury at Harry among palace aides – who called for the Duke and Duchess to give up their titles.

The anger is said to have grown further after his latest barbs during his appearance on The Me You Can’t See, his TV series about mental health.

The aides, already taken aback by Harry’s ‘shocking’ criticism of Prince Charles’s parenting skills – and by implication those of the Queen and the late Prince Philip – were stunned when he returned to the theme by suggesting his father had allowed him and Prince William to ‘suffer’ as children.

‘My father used to say to me when I was younger, “Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you”,’ he said, adding that efforts to get help for Meghan when she felt suicidal were ‘met with total silence or total neglect’.

Despite the sustained attacks, Charles is understood to maintain hope of a reconciliation with his younger son. .

‘I don’t think the Prince will cut his son off despite what Harry has said,’ one friend said.

‘Charles will want to engage, but it’s fair to say what Harry has said in both interviews with Oprah has been seen as very callous within the family. If Harry was to attack the Queen in a more personal way, Charles would close ranks with the Queen without a doubt and Harry would be out in the cold.’

The friend added: ‘Charles is such a gentle man and a dedicated father first and foremost. He’ll be feeling wretched. He wants to seek a reconciliation. He is not vindictive at all.’
