'There's a lot of hurt that's happened.'
This past month was no exception as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the news that they were expecting their second child and announced that they would not be returning to royal duties.
This week saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sit down for in an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey, with the show airing in the UK on Monday evening.
The rare move for the notoriously private couple saw record numbers of viewers.
The Duke and Duchess spoke about everything from mental health and their relationship with the royal family to their current pregnancy, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even revealing that they are expecting a baby girl.
It was Prince Harry's words about his father Prince Charles that really got the world talking as the Duke of Sussex expressed his sadness at feeling 'let down'.
'I feel really let down because he's been through something similar, he knows what the pain feels like,' Harry said of his father. 'I will always love him but there's a lot of hurt that's happened.'
He later continued: 'There's a lot to work through there. I feel really let down because he's been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like, and Archie's his grandson. At the same time I will always love him, but there's a lot of hurt that's happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship, but they only know what they know.'
The royal family has not responded.
