UNITED KINGDOM: Britain’s Prince Harry said, “I would like to get my father, King Charles, and my brother back,” in a segment of an interview with broadcaster ITV that was made public on Monday before the release of his forthcoming memoirs.
In the clip, he says, “It never needed to be this way. They’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile,” adding, “I would like to get my father back; I would like to have my brother back.”
ITV stated that Prince Harry’s relationships and “never-before-heard revelations” regarding the passing of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, would be included in the interview.
The ITV sit-down, filmed in California, where the Sussexes reside, will also include the duke discussing “the leaking and the planting” of tales before saying, “I want a family, not an institution.”
In 2020, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle — officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — announced that they would step down from royal duties, saying they wanted to start new lives in the US away from the media harassment.
Since then, they have criticised how they were treated as royals, with Harry accusing William, the Prince of Wales, of shouting at him during a meeting to discuss his future.
In a different interview with CBS News in the US, Harry claimed that Buckingham Palace had declined to publicly back him and his wife while at the same time the palace was briefing against them.
“When we’re being told for the last six years, ‘We can’t put a statement out to protect you,’ but you do it for other members of the family, there comes the point when silence is betrayal,” he told a journalist in the 60 Minutes programme.
The two interviews will air on January 8—two days before Harry’s autobiography, ‘Spare,’ is published. It’s anticipated that the memoir ‘Spare’ will go into detail regarding his problems with his brother, Prince William.
