Prince Harry was left feeling lonely following the fall-out from the Oprah Winfrey interview he did with his wife Meghan Markle in March last year.

With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex based in the US, Meghan was able to call upon support from her friends, but Harry didn't have people rallying around him in the same manner.

He even appeared to be cold-shouldered by members of the Royal Family during the Sussexes' brief return to these shores earlier this month for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

It is alleged that ex-England rugby player Mike Tindall – the husband of Harry's cousin Zara Phillips – even referred to the prince as a "b***end" during the celebrations of the monarch's 70-year reign on the throne.

In the wake of the interview, American friends of the Duchess popped up to verify that she had proof of her shocking allegations against the Royal Family, including actor Janina Gavanker and breakfast show host Gayle King.

Yet over on this side of the Atlantic, there was pretty much a wall of silence from Harry's friends, commentator Daniela Elser claimed in a column for

"All of the loudest voices are people from Meghan's side of the aisle," she said.

"Maybe this is down to Harry's friends being seasoned hands at royal mateship, knowing that integral to keeping the role is keeping vehemently schtum around the media and simply adopting a batten-down-the-hatches, ride-out-the-storm approach," she pondered.

"Surely now would be the moment for a well-placed Eton chum or two (with permission, mind) to offer up a sympathetic interview or a quote here and there to help Brits understand what the formerly beloved British son is going through right now.

"And yet clearly, either Harry does not want to call on his British besties or does not see the need."

Ms Elser went on to suggest that Harry may be "a tad lonely" in California, similar to what Meghan went through when she joined the Royal Family in 2018.

The Daily Star has approached the Duke of Sussex for comment.
