This coming weekend, Prince Harry will be sitting down for two tell-all interviews in which he says he wants his brother and father “back.”
The Duke of Sussex also alleged that stories were planted as he and his wife, Meghan Markle, attempted to step back from royal duties. Both interviews are set to air just days before his memoir “Spare” releases on Jan. 10.
Harry’s two interviews will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 8, when he will be speaking with ITV’s Tom Bradby as well as Anderson Cooper for his first U.S. interview on “60 Minutes.”
“They’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile,” Harry is seen saying in a promo clip for his ITV interview. “I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back,” he added.
Harry was also shown saying that “they feel as though it is better to keep us somehow as the villains,” not making it entirely clear who he was referring to.
Prince Harry also touched upon leaked stories by the palace in a new one-minute segment shared by CBS News. Cooper is seen asking Harry about his decision to publicly step away from the royal family.
Harry claims that “every single time I’ve tried to do it privately, there have been briefings and leaking and planting of stories against me and my wife,” going on to claim that the palace has meetings with the media where reporters are “spoon fed information” to write a story.
Harry added that the palace had claimed it could not release a statement to “protect” him and his family, which it would do for other royal family members, remarking to Cooper, “there becomes a point when silence is betrayal.”
Prince Harry claimed he and Markle were victims of “institutional gaslighting” while also alleging the palace was “happy to lie” to protect his brother, Prince William.
Other bombshell claims were made about the palace’s covering for other royal members in the couple’s latest docuseries on Netflix, “Harry and Meghan.”
Harry and Meghan’s popularity among the British public has tanked since the docuseries was released with a recent poll by YouGov in the United Kingdom finding that almost half of the respondents believe the prince should be stripped of his royal title.
Royal expert Shannon Felton Spence previously told Fox News that the royal family will be watching the release of his tell-all book “closely,” as the contents of the memoir could prove damaging to their reputation.
