Lorraine Kelly, 60, has claimed it will most likely be an “awkward” reception for Prince Harry, when he is reunited with his family in July to unveil a statue of his mother Princess Diana. The ITV host discussed the topic on her eponymous show after the royal’s comments about his father Prince Charles’ parenting skills on a US podcast were widely circulated yesterday.

I don’t understand why he would do that

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.

He reflected on his upbringing, and while he firmly stressed he wasn’t pointing the finger at anyone, Prince Harry revealed he was determined not to introduce his wife Meghan Markle and their child Archie Mountbatten into the world of pain he endured.

The Duke said he is keen to “break the cycle” of “pain and suffering” he endured growing up in the Royal household.

Speaking on Prince Harry’s remarks on the podcast, Lorraine asked royal expert Russell Myer: “Where does this put them? 

“He’s supposed to be coming over next month, isn’t he?”

She added: “It’s going to be awkward, surely?”

Harry is due 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. 

Further discussing the intentions behind Prince Harry’s candid appearance on a public platform, Lorraine said: “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.”

Just months after his landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey alongside his wife Meghan, Prince 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,” he finished.

Prince Harry quit working as a senior member of the Royal Family at the beginning of last year.

He has since moved to Los Angeles with his wife Meghan and their son Archie.
