“It is very difficult to be in someone’s shoes,” Prince Albert told the BBC. “I can understand the pressures they were under, but I think this kind of public display of dissatisfaction, to say the least, these kinds of conversations should take place in the intimate spaces of the family.”
The Prince of Monaco added: “You don’t really have to present yourself in the public sphere that way. So it bothered me a bit. I can understand where they come from in a certain way, but I think it was not the appropriate forum to be able to have this kind of discussions “.
When asked for advice to 36-year-old Harry, Prince Albert replied, “Well, I wish you well, but it’s a tough world and I hope you have the judgment and wisdom to make the right decisions.”
