The Duke of Sussex gave an exclusive in-depth chat all about his life both in and out of the Royal Family. Although the 90-minute interview has faced heavy criticism, royal expert Jennie Bond mentioned there were glimmers of the “old” Harry.
On Sunday evening, the 38-year-old touched on certain segments in the interview from his upcoming biography, Spare.
From the strained relationship with his father and brother, how he dealt with the death of his mother and the hope to one day reconcile with them all.
Although many have slammed Prince Harry over the 90-minute special, with some demanding he stop publicly speaking about his family, royal editor Jennie Bond claimed he came off well.
Joining Lorraine to speak about the interview via video link from her Devon home, the royal correspondent shared her thoughts.
She said: “I was pleased Lorraine that watching an hour and a half of Harry on television, I still found him likeable.
“I have huge sympathy, obviously as everyone did for what he went through, but there were still glimmers of the old Harry here and there.
“But then he suffers, from what I honestly think is near delusion in his damaged state against the press.
“Everything is the fault of the press and he’s so vitriolic about it he just cannot seem to move on from that.”
Although the royal editor told Lorraine that his bitterness is understandable given the death of his mother Princess Diana, which he candidly spoke about in the interview.
Jennie went on to highlight that a lot of what The Duke of Sussex said to Tom seemed conflicted and contradictory.
She added: “As Russell (Myers) said, he allowed his family to be hung out to dry on an accusation of racism which Harry says now he never said wasn’t true.
“That, in my view, is almost unforgivable, he seems a little bit deluded that he wants to save the United Kingdom from the evil, evil press.”
Along with the ITV interview, the Duke of Sussex also sat down with American presenter Anderson Cooper for CBS where he made more revelations about certain members of his family.
One persona he spoke about in particular included his stepmother Camilla Queen Consort, who he described as being a villain.
Calling her the third person in the marriage between his mother and father, King Charles and Princess Diana, he claimed he had begged his dad not to marry her.
He told Anderson that Camilla had to rehabilitate her image and had become dangerous with the connections she was forming with the British Press.
Speaking about both he and his brother not wanting their father to marry his Camilla, he said: “We didn’t think it was necessary.
“We thought that it was going to cause more harm than good and that if he was now with his person that surely that’s enough. Why go that far when you don’t necessarily need to?
“We wanted him to be happy and we saw how happy he was with her, so at the time it was OK.”
Lorraine continues on weekdays on ITV from 9am
