A friend of Prince Charles has come to the royal’s defence after another attack on his parenting style by Prince Harry.
Prince Charles’ youngest son opened up about his childhood during a podcast, appearing to criticise the way he was raised by his father saying he had deliberately adopted a different parenting method with Archie to “break the cycle” of pain and suffering.
The duke made the revelations during a 90-minute interview with American actor Dax Shepard for his Armchair Expert podcast.
But an unnamed friend of the Prince of Wales says Prince Harry has judged his father too “harshly” showing a major lacking of “compassion”.
“If you follow Harry’s logic and treat the royals just as ordinary people, then the prince is a single parent who’s been doing his best for years,” the friend told the Daily Mail, reports The Express.
“Can you imagine how it feels to have that effort judged so harshly, so publicly?
“Harry talks about compassion. But where is the compassion for his father?
“Where is your compassion for your own family who have just buried a much-loved member?
“And where is your compassion for your grandmother who has just lost the man she’s loved all her life?”
