Prince Harry ‘takes on Diana’s mantle to become locked in battle with Royals’

Prince Harry has become so focused on carrying on his mother Princess Diana’s mantle that he runs the risk of perpetuating her feud with the Royals instead of ending it an expert has claimed

Prince Harry is letting “history repeat itself” as he follows in his mother’s footsteps by battling with the Royals a royal expert has said.

The Duke of Sussex has been accused of putting too much effort into aiming criticism at the Royal Family and taking on the role that his mother left behind after her ongoing battle with “The Firm” while she was still alive. Harry spoke on Princess Diana and her legacy in his memoir Spare as he addressed wanting “peace” within his family.

Now Royal author and expert Tom Quinn has said that Harry is in danger of simply perpetuating the situation if he continues to focus on what Diana endured. Talking exclusively to the Mirror Tom said: “Harry’s comment in Spare that he ‘wants peace’ with the royal family for the sake of his mother is undoubtedly heartfelt, but in being so focused on Diana, Harry is actually allowing history to repeat itself.”

Quinn then said how Harry has picked up the “mantle” for his mother as an adult. He said: “Diana famously fell out with ‘the firm’ as she called it and spent much of her adult life criticising an institution she felt had let her down. Harry has taken on his mother‘s mantle by carrying on exactly the same kind of criticism.”

Harry – who lost his mother in 1997 when he was just 12 years old after she was involved in a fatal car crash in Paris, France – has spoken at length about the impact of his mother’s death. Quinn added: “He hates that he feels he has to do this and he would like to be close again to his father King Charles and his brother Prince William, but like his mother he’s locked into a battle that has become an obsession for him.”

Tom also said Harry’s time in the military served as an escape for him from the ongoing battle he has had with his emotions not just over his mother but with feelings of isolation and not fitting in throughout his life. He added: “Harry‘s statement that fighting in Iraq was better than remaining in Britain makes complete sense given that we know one of the few periods in his life during which he was happy was his time in the military. Fighting in Iraq gave him a sense of camaraderie that he has never had with his family.”
