PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have been told to "get on with their lives" by a royal insider – and stop publicly criticising their family.
The Duke of Sussex this week blasted his dad's parenting skills just two months after his bombshell interview with Oprah.
And his latest claims, made on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shephard, came out on the same day as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carried out official engagements in Wolverhampton – which was said to have "usurped" the couple's efforts.
A royal source told The Times: “It was such a lovely day for the Cambridges. It is a shame that it got usurped by what Harry had to say.
“Nobody is shocked any more. It is more: ‘Here we go again.’
"But he should be told that these grievances should be aired in the privacy of your own home.
"Don’t do it publicly in a podcast. Get on with your life.”
It comes after Harry, 36, told host Dax Shephard his dad, 72, “suffered” due to his upbringing by the Queen and Philip, then “treated me the way he was treated”.
He said: “I verbalise it, which is, ‘Isn’t life about breaking the cycle’?
"There’s no blame, I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.
“But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering perhaps my father or my parents suffered, I’m gonna make sure that I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. As parents we should be doing the most that we can to say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m gonna make sure that’s not going to happen to you’.”
Harry also revealed he had wanted to quit royal duties in his twenties and described royal life as a mix between The Truman Show and living in a zoo.
Charles is understood to feel bewildered that he has been criticised yet again by Harry, who told Oprah Winfrey back in March that his dad had cut him off financially and refused to take his calls.
Harry had told the chat show queen he was “disappointed” in Charles, whom he described – along with brother William – as “trapped” in his role.
But the future king stayed silent on the matter while out and about in Wales yesterday, with aides making clear he would not answer any questions about the podcast.
One reporter from the BBC tried to quiz him anyway, and was heard asking: "Sir do you agree with prince Harry about the suffering and pain in the family? Have you heard his comments?"
Charles ignored the reporter and continued walking.
It came a day after Wills' and Kate's visit to the Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton, marking Mental Health Awareness Week.
Kate played a game of ping pong, while Wills showed off his footie skills – managing five keepie uppies.
The Duchess also had a go at shooting a bow and arrow during an archery lesson alongside other youngsters.
Alongside a clip of their visit, the couple wrote on their Kensington Royal Twitter account: “Todays visit is all about understanding local organisations here in Wolverhampton.
“Organisations that are motivating and inspiring young people to transform their lives. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek.”
Referencing his poor football skills, Wills added: “P.S blaming the shoes for football attempts.”
Buckingham Palace has declined to comment.
