After Prince Harry for candid interviews, many royal witnesses have been speculating as to how the Queen is responding to her rogue grandson, as well as asking him why? After he pretending just to have left the UK to escape the prying press the Duke of Sussex keeps making headlines.
Today Show’s Allison Langdon, who raised these very queries to live on air. During the morning show speaking with ITV’s royal editor Chris Ship, Allison, 42, asked the expert why Prince Harry continues to make engage him in these tell-all’s despite their potential consequences. Ally asked the editor: “If Harry knows he is hurting his grandmother, why on earth does he keep giving these interviews?”.
Before Chris could answer, the perplexed host provided her own opinion – an opinion which is shared by many royal observers. But Allison said “He left the UK to get away from the press and all the scrutiny, yet he can’t help being the headline”.
At this point, the editor jumped in, repeating Allison’s sentiment by stating, “Yeah, there are some people who are now accusing Harry of invading his privacy”. The exasperated stated that “It’s just ridiculous how he keeps whining about his childhood,”. “He grew up in privilege in a palace.”
The Duke candidly admitted that: “I would just start sweating. I would feel as though my body temperature was two or three degrees warmer than everybody else in the room.
I would convince myself that my face was bright red and therefore everybody could see how I was feeling, but no one would know why, so it was embarrassing,”. “You get in your head about it, and then you’re just like, ‘Everybody’s looking at me.’
One bead of sweat feels like the whole face is pouring down. Just sweating, and then just all in my head going, ‘This is so embarrassing. What are they thinking of me? They have no idea. I can’t tell them.'”
He alleged that Prince Harry then admitted that his mental struggles led him to use alcohol as a “mask”, stating, “I was willing to drink. I was willing to take drugs. I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling”.
He added: “But I slowly became aware that okay I wasn’t drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week’s worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night. And I would find myself drinking not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something.”
