In his latest interview, Prince Harry ruthlessly blasted Prince Charles' parenting skills - and now the Palace has hit back.
Harry unearthed some serious home truths that weren't quite covered in his and Meghan's controversial Oprah interview.
His comments were explosive, to say the least!
Now, we all know that Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, formally stepped down from their positions within the royal family last year...
And they are currently residing in Los Angeles where they're raising their son, Archie, and expecting their second child.
Well, they've finally decided to speak out about their terrible experiences with the royal family and British press in the last few years...
To none other than Oprah Winfrey.
It's the interview that everyone has been talking about.
Their 2-hour-long interview aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th and viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.
Meghan Markle was SUICIDAL and the royal family DENIED her mental health treatment, but she persevered and her open… https://t.co/LP4k18eJ42— Cleavon MD (@Cleavon MD)1615170646.0
It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.
Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly "made Kate cry" in a row about bridesmaids' dresses in the days before her and Harry's wedding - well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.
Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had "forgiven her."
She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.
Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised "concerns" about how dark Archie's skin would be before his birth.
"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, 'you won't be given security, not gonna be given a title' and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."
Harry then explained that he "had to get out," though when he did he was "cut off financially" when he and Meghan needed help the most...
He also added that they've since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.
"I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn't have what my mom left me, we wouldn't have been able to do this."
"All I wanted to do was keep my family safe."
Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K - she said the intention was to "do this forever" and that she told the royal family to "use me as much as you like."
Later in the interview, Oprah asked how the prince thinks the late Princess Diana would have felt about the rifts that drove them to step back from the royal family.
"I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad," Harry said, "But ultimately, all she'd ever want is for us to be happy."
Quite predictably, opinion was well and truly divided over the interview...

With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they've allegedly endured in the last few years.
But on the other hand...
Another lie exposed, they're coming thick and fast: https://t.co/lImQ73Dw33— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan)1615213212.0
People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah's interview and have even been brandishing them as "liars"... including Piers Morgan, of course!
It's undoubtedly caused a lot of drama...
And the couple have been the talk of the entire world.
But now, over 2 months on from the interview, Prince Harry has spoken out yet again...
And he's revealed some serious home truths.
Talking on Dax Shepherd's Armchair Expert podcast, Harry promoted his upcoming Apple TV+ series with Oprah Winfrey, The Me You Can't See...
And, of course, he discussed further the reasons that prompted him to uproot his life in the U.K... including totally slamming his father, Prince Charles.
During the wide-ranging interview lasting ninety minutes, Harry - who appears to have developed an American twang to his British accent since leaving the U.K - 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'."
The Duke called royal life "a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo"...
And he said he quit last year to put his family and mental health "first."
He also put "wild partying" in his youth down to "childhood trauma" having previously admitted experimenting with cannabis and drinking to excess, and joked about the time he played naked billiards at a party in Las Vegas.
Harry then described how he started therapy after Meghan "saw he was angry"...
And when asked if he felt "in a cage" while in royal duties, he said:
"It's the job right? Grin and bear it. Get on with it. I was in my early twenties and I was thinking I don't want this job, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be doing this. Look what it did to my mum, how am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family when I know it's going to happen again."
But now palace insiders have hit back.
"They appear to be making careers of talking about their previous ones. It is not helpful. Nothing ever appears to be their own fault."
