In an official trailer for the film archive footage of Harry standing next to Prince Charles at Princess Diana’s funeral airs as a voiceover says: “Treating people with dignity is the first act.”
Susanna, 50, and Adil, 47, reacted to the footage on GMB earlier and also listened to a segment of Harry’s podcast interview with Dax Shepherd last week, in which he said he wants to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” caused by royal parenting.
Turning to GMB guest and journalist Andrew Pierce, who called Harry using images of his mother’s funeral in the documentary as “appalling”, Susanna, 50, said: “You’re dragging your family into criticism aren’t you?
“Anyone who goes into therapy is going to be drawn into a discussion but I’m not sure your parents want to hear that discussion.
She later added: “It’s so personal – I absolutely support him talking about mental health.
“I just think when you divulge all the reasons behind that and drag other people into it , you’re dragging other people into it.”
Royal experts have called it another blow for Prince Charles, after Harry said he desperately wants to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” caused by royal parenting on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard last week.
Harry described his former royal life as a mix between The Truman Show and living in a zoo.
The Duke of Sussex opened up about his upbringing last week, claiming he moved his son to the States to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain” from his own childhood.
