Harry ‘not free’ as bombshell interview’s impact will be felt ‘for decades’

Prince Harry is "not free" and "could feel the repercussions of his interview with Oprah Winfrey for decades", a royal commentator has claimed.

In the bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey, Harry said he felt "trapped" in royal life before meeting his now-wife Meghan Markle.

He then commented that his brother Prince William and dad Prince Charles "cannot escape" with the pair likely both being king one day.

But royal commentator and columnist Daniela Elser said the 36-year-old might not be as free as he thinks he is.

Writing on news.com.au, she said: "The world might now know their truth, but it is not going to set them free.

"Harry and Meghan have now set in stone what will be – potentially forevermore – the decisive narrative of how things went so spectacularly off the rails."

Meghan and Harry's bombshell interview with Oprah, aired in the US on Sunday night and on ITV in the UK on Monday, featured a number of accusations and claims made against the Royal Family.

They included claims one member of the family expressed concern for their son Archie's skin tone and Kate Middleton allegedly making Meghan cry in a disagreement over bridesmaid dresses.

Ms Elser said: "The notion that Harry might one day ever stand on the Buckingham Palace balcony surrounded by his family in a heartwarming show of unity now seems laughable.

"Harry and Meghan might be the victims here but they have also, knowingly or not, cast themselves out into the wilderness."

A Buckingham Palace statement in response to the interview read: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.

"Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."

After revealing he thinks his brother and dad are "trapped", Harry said he felt "let down" by how Prince Charles handled his decision to quit as a senior royal.

He told Oprah that while the pair are currently estranged he hopes to "heal" the relationship with his father.

It has been claimed that Charles has not watched the Oprah interview but sources suggest he is "very disappointed" with what Harry and Meghan told her.

William spoke out to say the Royal family is "very much not racist". The brothers have reportedly not spoken since the interview aired.
