Prince Harry continues to speak out about the split within the British royal family.

He sat down with Anderson Cooper for a “60 Minutes” interview, described by CBS as Prince Harry’s “first American TV interview to discuss his upcoming memoir ‘Spare’ and recount his childhood, the loss of his mother and his life as the Duke of Sussex, living in the UK and now in America.

In a clip released on Monday, Cooper asked Prince Harry about the criticism leveled at him and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, over their decision to step back from royal duties, but publicly aired their grievances about what happened. leads to relocation.

The second son of King Charles repeated that he had tried to address the matter in private.

“And every time I tried to do it privately, there were briefings and leaks and stories against me and my wife,” he said. “You know, the family motto is ‘Never complain, never explain.’ It’s just a currency.

The couple recently made headlines for their Netflix docuseries ‘Harry & Meghan’, which debuted last month. In it, the couple shared stories of both their dating and their opinions of how they were treated by the media and their respective families.

Prince Harry is also expected to give more details about his life inside and outside the Royal Family in an upcoming television interview with UK network ITV, in which he said: “I want a family, not a institution.”

In an excerpt from the interview published on Monday, the Duke of Sussex said: ‘They have shown no willingness to reconcile’, presumably referring to the Royal Family.

“I would like to get my father back. I would like my brother back,” he told reporter Tom Bradby in the clip of the interview, which is due to air on ITV1 on Sunday January 8.

The “60 Minutes” interview with Prince Harry will also air on CBS on Sunday.
