Prince Harry IGNORED Queen's plea to deal with issues privately and 'no chance of reconciliation soon', say experts

PRINCE Harry ignored the Queen's plea to deal with issues privately – and there is now little chance the Duke will soon reconcile with his family, a royal expert says.

It comes as Harry makes yet more bombshell claims about his "nightmare" life as a royal in documentary The Me You Can't See.

The prince says he was shown "total neglect" for his mental health woes, while father Charles made him "suffer".

And he claimed The Firm had "smeared" his wife – leaving her crying into her pillow – before the Oprah interview aired ten weeks ago.

Commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the Royal Family face huge difficulties in how to move forward – particularly after the Queen requested that personal problems were dealt with out of the public gaze.

Harry said:

  • Prince Charles didn't 'make it right' for him and brother Prince William after their mother's car crash death in 1997
  • He turned to drinking and drugs in his late 20s, admitting: 'I would drink a week's worth in one day'
  • As a child he was 'angry' at the public for the huge outpouring of grief after Diana died at the age of 36
  • He's convinced the media 'will not stop' until wife Meghan Markle 'dies'
  • Meghan resisted suicidal thoughts because she knew it would be 'unfair' for Harry to lose another woman in his life
  • Some of Archie's first words were "grandma Diana"

"There is for the Royal Family a very, very real problem about the way the Sussexes are addressing their unhappiness," Mr Fitzwilliams said.

"It's about the way they speak of how unhappy they feel, how they felt trapped and how Meghan felt suicidal.

"He also attacks his upbringing.

"But the way he chooses to open up, and how – it's very difficult to know how you come to terms with this.

"They are both being deeply personal and speaking so publicly."

Mr Fitzwilliams said there is "clearly a huge gulf between the Royal Family and the Sussexes".

"The Queen urged that the issues be dealt with privately as a family. Meghan and Harry don't seem to be heeding that at all," he said.

"The other problem is that when you're dealing with a couple who are erratic, you don't know what's coming."

And the expert believes Meghan and Harry have little interest on the British public's reaction.

"It does seem that they're targeting or aiming their comments at America and the wider world – they don't care very much what happens in Britain," he said.

"It's desperately damaging, but how do you stop it or attempt to control it?

"What about the privacy of others? Anything you say might become public.

"That problem hasn't been solved and it remains extremely serious. The problem isn't going to go away.

"We must hope for reconciliation in some form, but clearly, I don't see it happening anytime soon.

"In this interview he speaks of neglect and bullying from the Royal Family.

"It couldn't be worse."

During the new documentary, Harry opens up about his struggles with his mental wellbeing and the trauma that haunts him after the death of Princess Diana.

And he discussed his wife's mental health as well as his own – and said Meghan didn't give into her suicidal thoughts because of how "unfair" it would have been to him after his mother died.

He singled out Charles for particular condemnation – saying his father did little to help him through his struggles.

"My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you'," he said.

He said he was never given the space or time to mourn Diana's death – and eventually turned to drinking and drugs to numb his lingering pain.

"I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling," he said.

"But I slowly became aware that, okay, I wasn't drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week's worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night.

"And I would find myself drinking, not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something."

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

"That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite.

"If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids."

The five-part celebrity-packed doc was released on Apple TV in the US on Thursday night and the UK on Friday morning.
