The Queen may have not signed off on Prince Harry’s explosive Apple TV documentary series had she known that the Royal Family would come under scrutiny, according to a royal expert. True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat host Kate Thornton said that the Queen would have been “unaware” that Harry would involve the royals in his Apple TV series on mental health. In the explosive documentary series, The Me You Can’t See, Harry accused his family of showing “total neglect”.

He also claimed his father Prince Charles made him “suffer” as a child.

Ms Thornton said: “There is no calling where this goes next, is there?

“We know he applied for permission from the Queen at the beginning of this series he made with Oprah, over two years ago.

“And she signed off on it, probably unaware of how the narrative would become so personal.”

This was in response to royal biographer Angela Levin’s claim that Harry’s recent swipes have been “selfish” and “very immature”.

The Queen is said to have given Harry her blessing for his Apple TV series in 2018.

However, sources told DailyMail.com that she was given a “misleading” pitch that it would be about soldiers’ mental health.

A Royal Family source said the Queen and Prince Charles are “absolutely gobsmacked” after Harry used the show to launch “attacks” on his family.

The series idea is understood to have originated when Harry and Oprah first became close friends, after having been introduced by Meghan Markle.

A source close to Buckingham Palace reportedly said: “No one within the Palace circles has anything but sympathy for Harry’s trauma and troubled life, but there is upset and discomfort at him sharing it on an international television show.

“Certainly the intimate detail of his hardships paint a very negative picture of his family and upbringing. Many people have a different view.”

On his father, Prince Harry said in the Apple TV series: “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both 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, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite.

“If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids.”

A previous poll of Express.co.uk readers showed that 92 percent thought the Queen should refuse to give permission for any more of Prince Harry’s television shows.
