Harry says William and Charles are ‘trapped’ as he reveals father stopped taking his calls

Prince Harry said during his interview with Oprah Winfrey that he only spoke with his father Prince Charles twice about his eventual decision to step back from the royal family “before he stopped taking my calls.”

“By that point I took matters into my own hands,” Harry said when Oprah asked why he got such an allegedly cold reception. “I need to do this for my family. This is not a surprise.”

He also said the decision didn’t blind-side the Queen, as some have suggested.

“I would never blindside my grandmother,” Harry said during the sit-down, “I respect her too much.”

He explained his decision to step back from his position was due to a “lack of support, and a lack of understanding,” both from his family and from the UK press.

“I’ve got to do something for my own mental health, for my wife’s, and for Archie’s as well, because I could see where this was headed,” Harry added, an apparent allusion to the turbulent life of his mother, Princess Diana, who faced heavy scrutiny in the media.
