Prince Harry’s recent comment about royal parenting have reportedly been slammed by royal aides.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now said to be expected by royal aides to give up their titles after the 36 year old’s comments on Prince Charles and Prince William’s parenting.

Harry’s comments are said to have been branded as “disgraceful” while senior courtiers have reportedly claimed there is a growing sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” in the palace.

A royal aide has told the Mail On Sunday: “People are appalled that he could do this to the Queen when the Duke of Edinburgh is barely in his grave.

“To drag his grandfather into this is so shocking and disrespectful.

“The Duke of Sussex has now spent a significant amount of time emphasising that he's no different to anyone else and attacking the institution which he says has caused him so much pain.

“There is a growing feeling that if you dislike the institution that much, you shouldn't have the titles.”

Meanwhile, a separate source suggested Prince Harry, who was defended by Stacey Solomon recently, and his 39 year old wife Meghan should give up their royal titles.


They claimed to the publication: “They should put the titles into abeyance, so they still exist, but are not used, like they agreed to do with their HRHs.

“They should just become Harry and Meghan. And if they refuse to do that, they have to explain why not.”

Despite the apparent reaction to Harry’s latest comments, there are no formal plans to strip the couple of their royal titles.

It comes after Harry took a swipe at dad Prince Charles when he discussed parenting in the Royal Family on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

Speaking on the podcast to his Apple TV+ series with Oprah Winfrey, called The Me You Can't See, Harry was asked if he would raise his kids in the “opposite direction” of how his own father Prince Charles, 72, brought him up during the intimate chat.

“Isn't life about breaking the cycle?” the royal responded before insisting there's no need to “blame anyone” but he himself has “experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered”.

He then vowed to “break that cycle so that I don't pass it on, basically”. Harry added: “It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I'm going to make sure that doesn't happen to you’.”

Speaking on his own upbringing by Prince Charles he added: “He was treating me the way he was treated, which means how can I change that for my own kids? Well here I am, I've now moved my whole family to the US – that wasn't the plan!”
