The relationship between Prince Harry and his father Charles is now considered broken.
The latest scandalous interview is likely to widen the gap.
London - In a podcast interview with Dax Shepard, the emigrated Royal Prince Harry reports on his childhood in the royal family - and he doesn't have much good to say.
He reports of "suffering and pain" that is passed on through the generations.
He himself was badly treated by his father, Prince Charles, because he himself experienced it that way.
Harry now wants to break this painful cycle.
Prince Harry with a new interview about childhood - an uncomfortable reaction from the Royals
Statements that are unlikely to meet with approval in London.
Not only because the British royal family still adheres to the principle of not disclosing private information to the outside world, but also because there are personal attacks on Queen Elizabeth, the recently deceased Prince Philip and heir to the throne Charles.
In fact, the explosive interview probably caused an uproar in the palace.
"Harry's criticism of his father hit this place like a bomb.
We are shocked!
The timing couldn't be worse, so soon after Philip's death, ”a palace employee told
How sensitive the subject is can also be seen in the reaction of Prince Charles.
The number one line of succession made a number of appearances in Wales on the day his son's interview was released.
A BBC journalist asked him, "Sir, do you agree with Prince Harry about the suffering and pain in the family?" The answer was a petrified expression and an icy silence.
This reaction should be symbolic of what can still be expected from the official side.
The Royal Family is unlikely to speak out publicly in this case.
Reconciliation no longer possible?
Prince Harry moves away from his family
Behind the palace walls, however, the emotions should boil. The palace employee believes that Harry burned the last bridges to Father Charles with this second interview. "I think that the prince has blocked the last chance to return to the family," he says to
. "Charles won't forgive him for that."
However, it is also very questionable whether Prince Harry and wife Meghan would even like that.
The Duchess of Sussex had already made it clear in an interview with talk legend Oprah Winfrey that she felt very uncomfortable, probably got no help for her depression and was also confronted with racism.
Prince Harry's recent statements also do not suggest that he misses the family environment.
At the beginning of the year, the couple finally decided to live in California, far from royal constraints.
