Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shocked the world last year when they announced they would be stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family. The couple moved to California with their son Archie in an attempt for a more private life.

But since stepping away, the couple have made several explosive claims about their time as members of the Firm.

The couple sat down with Oprah Winfrey back in March and claimed there were conversations about the colour of Archie’s skin before he was born.

Since then, Prince Harry has also taken part in a podcast and a documentary series where he has hit out at the Royal Family.

Now, a source told Entertainment Tonight the feelings between the Sussexes and the rest of the family are now “strained”.

Entertainment Tonight host Hallie Stephen said: “The Royal Family isn’t exactly pleased with Prince Harry discussing their family matters publically.

“A source tells ET that relations between the Royal Family and the Duke of Sussex have been strained over Harry’s decision to continue speaking out about Royal Family matters.”

The bombshell interview with Oprah was just the start of the couple’s attack on the Royal Family.

Last month, Harry appeared on the Armchair Expert podcast where he said he does not want to pass on pain from his own experience to his son Archie and future daughter.

In a new documentary series, called ‘The Me You Can’t See’, Harry opened up about his experiences with mental health.

The Duke of Sussex has used his platform to speak “his truth” about his time as a member of the Royal Family.

In the documentary, Harry claimed his suffering goes back to the “same people, the same business model and the same industry”.

Harry said: “It all comes back to the same people, the same business model, the same industry.

“My father used to say when I was younger, he used to say to William and I, ‘well it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you’. That doesn’t make sense.

“Just because you suffered it doesn’t mean your kids have to ­suffer.

“In fact, it’s the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure any negative experiences you had mean you can make it right for your kids.”

The Duke insisted he would no longer be “bullied into silence” when he alleged royal life “trapped” and then dumped them.

Royal expert Kate Nicholl added how the public are growing more and more “frustrated” with Prince Harry.

She told ET: “I think unfortunately for the Royal Family it seems that Harry is not afraid to draw on his own experiences in order to relay the importance of mental health and get his message out.

“I absolutely know that it is the case that Prince Harry is committed to raising awareness about mental health.

“He and Meghan have made this one of the raison d’etre.

“I think certainly people over here are a little disappointed and frustrated as well at hearing Prince Harry indirectly criticise the Royal Family which I think is the interpretation by some in the UK.”
