Richard Madeley has criticised Prince Harry's recent comments about the royal family in his explosive interview with Dax Shepard.

TV presenter Richard, 65, branded the 36 year old Duke of Sussex's "second attack on his family" as a "mistake".

Richard claimed that Harry, who's recent bike ride comments stumped royal experts, has "lost the plot" following his recent interviews.

The TV star, who was recently snapped with his grandson, said: "I think Harry's lost the plot, I’m sad to say, because I think fundamentally, Harry is a decent man.

"I think he's a decent guy, who like many people has had bad, difficult, experiences in his life.

"I mean, very few of us lead a charmed existence, so I don’t think that makes him particularly special," he added to Express.co.uk.

Richard continued: "People do lose their parents, you know, I lost my father when I was 21."

Richard added that Harry, who recently revealed Archie's first word, "needs to take a step back" after speaking out about his time in the royal family in a number of interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Dax Shepard.


He said: "But I do think that he does need to step back and just think a little bit harder before he opens his mouth.

"I think, for example, the second attack on his family in the podcast was a mistake. And it was unfair because they can't reply."

Prince Harry recently criticised his father Prince Charles' parenting and said he moved to the US to "break the cycle of pain and suffering".

The Duke of Sussex was asked if he would raise his two kids in the "opposite direction" of how his own father Prince Charles, 72, brought him up during the chat.

"Isn't life about breaking the cycle?" the royal responded before insisting there's no need to "blame anyone" but he himself has "experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered."

Prince Harry vowed to "break that cycle so that I don't pass it on, basically."

Expanding on this, he continued: "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'."

Speaking on his own upbringing, he went on to explain how he "never saw it" or "knew about it" and then he began to figure out where his father went to school, what happened to him, all the experiences he went through personally and how it's "connected to his parents," the Queen and the late Prince Philip.
