Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opened up about the pressure they have faced in their roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex in a candid interview they filmed during their stay in South Africa last month. The Duke’s “lack of filter” has been suggested to have caused concerns among Prince William and Prince Charles, according to commentator Melanie Bromley. The chief E! News correspondent said: “It doesn’t surprise me that William and Charles are concerned, the reason being that Harry has said in the Newsweek interview that if you are the heir to the throne, if you are going to be king, it’s cursed.
“It’s a terrible job, you’re in a terrible position, nobody would want that. That was definitely speaking out of turn.
“You’re basically saying, ‘Will’s fate is s**t’.”
Ms Bromley continued: “It’s going, ’he’s got a terrible future ahead of him’ – you just don’t say that, whether you are talking about a future king or…
“He definitely has less of a filter because he has less responsibility so he doesn’t need to have it.”
JUST IN: Meghan Markle and Harry’s team make explosive attack on William and Kate as rift deepens
In the documentary ‘Harry and Meghan: An African Journey,’ the Duke of Sussex appeared to confirm his relationship with Prince William has been strained after months of rumours of a rift between the brothers.
Discussing reports of a break with the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry said that “inevitably stuff happens” as a consequence of “this family being under the pressure that it’s under.”
He added: “We are brothers. We will always be brothers.
“We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.”

Rumours of a rift intensified earlier this year after it was announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would no longer be part of the Royal Foundation Harry and William created together in 2009.
Meghan and Harry created their own charitable organisation while William and wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge remained at the helm of the foundation. The couples have since worked together to help launch a new NHS-Public Health England scheme to help people facing mental health struggles.
In the documentary aired on Sunday, the Duchess of Sussex suggested she and Harry may ultimately walk away from royal life should they be unable to find happiness in their public roles.
Meghan also admitted British friends had warned her about the intense public scrutiny she would face once her relationship with Harry came to light.

Speaking to ITV filmmaker Tom Bradby, the Duchess said: “When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy.
“But my British friends said to me: ‘I’m sure he’s great. But you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life’.”
She added: “I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair, and that is the part that is really hard to reconcile.
“When people are saying things that are just untrue and they have been told they are untrue, but they are allowed to still say them, I don’t know anybody in the world that would feel like that is OK, and that is different from just scrutiny.”
