The Duke of Sussex was slammed as ‘insincere’ by furious viewers after he hailed the late Prince Philip and the Queen ‘the most adorable couple’ months after publicly criticizing the Royal Family.
Prince Harry, 37, made the remarks in BBC’s Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers.
The movie saw the duke gush over the relationship of his grandparents but viewers immediately blasted his remarks, with one person tweeting: “I know they had to include Harry but it felt weird after he trashed them on primetime TV.”
Another wrote: “Having a hard time believing Harry’s words in this programme. If he loved his grandfather so much, would he have released that hatchet job of an interview while he was so ill in hospital?”
A third said: “Why is Harry even on it when he showed such disrespect to his grandfather?”
Interviews were conducted separately and were filmed before and after Prince Philip’s passing in April. Harry’s tribute was filmed in the US where he lives with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
“More than anything I miss his sense of humour. But I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there. I also know she will be ok without him,” Harry said.
“The two of them together were just the most adorable couple.
“To me knowing the cheekiness of him and knowing that behind what the world sees you have two individuals who were very much in love and both, from a very young age, have dedicated their life to service… that is an incredible bond between two people.”
