The hits just keep on coming! Karl Stefanovic, an Australian TV host, didn't hold back when talking about Prince Harry's recent podcast remarks, where he spoke about his father's parenting skills, mental health and more.

"It's a great thing that he got away from all that prying press in the U.K.," Stefanovic said on the Today show about the red-headed royal.

"You have got to take the mental health pretty seriously," co-host Allison Langdon shot back.

"Of course, Ally, but I'm just saying it's ridiculous how he keeps whining about his childhood. He grew up in privilege — in a palace," Stefanovic replied. "I mean, just give it a rest, bro."

Stefanovic couldn't resist taking another swipe, saying that Prince Harry — who also spoke to Dax Shepard about the time that he stripped down in Las Vegas in 2012 — "looks happier, too, when he was partying in Vegas, I'm just saying."

Later on, Stefanovic said Harry should stay out of the drama going forward. 

"The guy doesn't need to go from his [California] mansion and start rabbiting on about how hard life is when he has got enormous privilege, and to keep bagging his family," he said. "Just get on with it. Just get on with it. Take a lesson out of the Queen's book and just get on with it. Carry on. I'm not saying anything more about that ... it's really riled me."

While speaking to Shepard, Harry criticized his father, Prince Charles, for his parenting tactics

"There is no blame, I don’t think we should be pointing a finger or blaming anybody. Certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some sort of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering perhaps my father or my parents have suffered, I am going to make sure I break that cycle so I don’t pass it on," he explained. "There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway."

Harry also shared that royal life is not all it's cracked up to be. "It's a mix between The Truman Show and living in a zoo," he said. "The biggest issue for me was that, being born into it, you inherit the risk. You inherit every element of it without a choice. And because of the way the U.K. media are, they feel an ownership over you."
