Prince Harry hopes TV show will ‘inspire people to be more caring’ in Royals dig
Prince Harry has taken a swipe at the royal family in the latest episode of his TV series with Oprah Winfrey.
The 36-year-old said that he hoped his Apple TV+ series The Me You Can’t See would inspire others to be more caring to those in need of help.
Speaking in a special bonus episode of the show, Harry said: “Around the world my hope is that our series will continue to inspire people to take a more active and compassionate approach to healing, community and wellbeing.
“Because we truly are all in this together.”
The statement came across as a thinly-veiled dig at the royal family who Harry accused of “total silence” and “total neglect” when he and Meghan Markle came to them asking for help with the barrage of social media abuse directed to Meghan.
The Duke of Sussex previously told Oprah: "I thought my family would help, but every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, just got met with total silence or total neglect,”
“That was one of the biggest reasons to leave,” he said.
“Feeling trapped and feeling controlled through fear, both by the media and by the [royal] system itself, which never encouraged the talking about this kind of trauma. But certainly now, I will never be bullied into silence.”

He reiterated the message in the TV series, saying that only by talking things out would there be healing and that the show intended to start a conversation about mental health.
In Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview with Oprah earlier this year, Meghan confessed to having thoughts of suicide and claimed she had been denied professional help from Buckingham Palace.

She explained: “I said that I needed to go somewhere to get help and said that I’ve never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere.
“And I was told that I couldn’t, that it wouldn’t be good for the institution.”
She continued: “They said, ‘My heart goes out to you, but there’s nothing we can do to protect you because you’re not a paid employee of the institution.’”
Harry spoke of his fear of losing his wife the same way he lost his mother, Princess Diana, saying watching Meghan being attacked by the media brought him back to how he had felt as a child watching his mother being pursued by paparazzi "every single day until the day she died."
