Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley, 65, has slammed Prince Harry over his recent interviews, during which he has shared his complaints about life in the Royal Family. During the Duke of Sussex’s recent interview with Dax Shepard, on the Armchair Expert podcast, he compared his experiences as a Senior Royal to being on The Truman Show and being in a zoo.
He also opened up to Oprah Winfrey about how his mental health has been impacted by being part of the Royal Family and following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
Harry spoke of his reluctance to participate in his royal duties in his 20s because of “what it did to his mum”, who died at the age of 36 when she was killed in a car accident in Paris.
The incident has been blamed on paparazzi, who were chasing the car the Princess was in at the time.
However, Richard has insisted that he believes Harry has “lost the plot” by sharing his grievances so publicly.
The star also revealed that he is saddened to see the change in the Duke’s behaviour since he left the UK to start a new life in America with wife Meghan Markle and their two young children, Archie and their newborn daughter Lilibet.
The ITV host said in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk: “I think Harry’s lost the plot I’m sad to say because I think, fundamentally, Harry is a decent man.
“I think he’s a decent guy, who, like many people, has had bad, difficult experiences in his life.
“I mean, very few of us lead a charmed existence, so I don’t think that makes him particularly special.
“People do lose their parents, you know, I lost my father when I was 21.”
Richard added: “It’s not the same as losing your mother at [a young age].
“But we all have our crosses to bear.”
Despite acknowledging Harry’s pain over losing his mother when he was just 12-years-old, Richard urged him to “think harder” before hitting out at his family.

The journalist continued: “I do think that he does need to step back and just think a little bit harder before he opens his mouth.”
“I just think he’s shooting from the hip a bit too much at the moment,” Richard went on to say.
It comes after Harry cast doubt on how he was raised in the Royal Family by his dad Prince Charles, as he said he wants to “parent” his and wife Meghan’s son Archie in a different way.
The Duke said: “Yeah… Isn’t life about breaking the cycle? There’s no blame.
“But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some kind of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father, or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so I don’t pass it on.
“As parents we should be doing the most we can to say, you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure it won’t happen to you.”
Harry added: “I have moved my whole family to the US.
“That wasn’t the plan! But sometimes you have to make decisions and put mental health first.”
