Lorraine Kelly is ‘baffled’ by Prince Harry’s latest comments blasting his father Prince Charles, explaining he wants to ‘break the cycle’ of ‘pain and suffering’ from his upbringing.
The Duke of Sussex was promoting his upcoming Apple TV Plus documentary looking at mental health on The Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard this week when he reflected on his troubled upbringing.
While he firmly stressed he wasn’t pointing the finger at anyone, Harry revealed he was determined not to introduce his wife Meghan Markle and their child Archie into the world of pain he endured.
After Kate Garraway called out Harry on Good Morning Britain today, Lorraine agreed, adding: ‘Once again I am baffled, I don’t understand why he would do that.
‘It’s not going to be easy to listen to that if you’re a member of the royal family.’
Harry is poised to return to the UK for the unveiling of a statue commemorating his mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday on July 1.
‘That’s going to be awkward, surely,’ she added, as Harry is poised to reunite with his brother, William.
Just months after his bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry opened up about his childhood further in the candid conversation with Dax.
‘There is no blame,’ he said. ‘I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form 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 that I don’t pass it on, basically.
‘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”.
‘It’s hard to do but for me it comes down to awareness. I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go “Okay, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?”
‘And here I am, I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first.’
