'How Many More Times Are We Going To Hear About Poor Prince Harry's Upbringing?': Experts Blast Red-Headed Royal For Playing 'The Victim' On Dax Shepard's Podcast
While chatting with Dax Shepard on his podcast, "Armchair Expert," Prince Harry got candid about his mental health and when he decided to go to therapy.
The 36-year-old also touched upon how he didn't want to be in the royal family when he was in his 20s.
"Look at what it did to my mom, [Princess Diana]. How am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and a family when I know it’s going to happen? Because I have seen behind the curtain, I have seen the business model. I know how this operation runs and how it works. I don’t want to be part of this," he said about how he felt at the time.

Harry also touched upon how even though there might be rough times, he is thankful to be in the position he's in.
"I truly believe you can move along the spectrum as well, wherever you were born you may start in one place but that will change over time," he shared about privilege. "Wherever you are born, you may start in one place, but that will change over time."
However, royal experts blasted Harry for his remarks. Angela Levin, author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince, said: "Harry's the victim again on Dax Shepard's podcast. Reveals he and Meg pretended not to know each other in a supermarket and that although he was born into privilege now believes 'you may start in one place but you can change in time.' So his 16-bathroom home isn't privilege."
"Harry is suffering from 'genetic pain,'" she continued. "YET he's got Meghan, a child, countless ways to earn money YET he keeps on cruelly complaining about his family while demanding their money and to keep his titles. So much moaning for a rich boy."
During the interview, Harry revealed that he was not going to treat son Archie the way his father treated him when he was younger.
"As parents we should do the most we can to say, 'That happened to me, I am going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.' It’s really hard to do, but for me, it comes down to awareness," he said. "I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I decided to piece it all together and go, 'OK, this is where [Prince Charles] went to school, this is what happened, I know this bit about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents.' So, that means he is treating me the way he was treated, which means how can I change that for my own kids?"
"How many more times are we going to hear about poor Prince Harry's upbringing and the impact on his mental well being? Charles, I am sure, did his very best for both his sons. It is not fair or healthy for LA 'Haz' to keep blaming his dad for all his woes," journalist Robert Jobson fumed.
Piers Morgan also bashed Harry after he compared his royal life to "living in a zoo."
"For a guy who craves privacy, Prince Harry sure is yapping a lot about his private life..." he wrote.
"How many more times is this spoiled brat going to publicly trash the Dad who's bankrolled him his entire life?" Morgan added.
