Jeremy Vine declares Prince Harry brings it on himself in royal discussion

Jeremy Vine is used to discussing the topics of the day on his self-titled Channel 5 show. He's now given an interview sharing his own thoughts on the furore following Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 40, walking away from royal duties.

The broadcaster explained that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are a "divisive subject" between panellists and viewers, whenever they are discussed on The Jeremy Vine Show.

The 56-year-old gave an in interview to the Express. He said he believed the commentary of Meghan has been "too harsh", but was less sympathetic towards Harry.

The couple stepped down from senior royal duties in 2019 and have embarked on a new life in the US. They now live in Montecito, California, surrounded by A-list celebrity neighbours.

As well as a multimillion dollar deal with Netflix, the couple have launched a podcast and Meghan has written a children's book.

"I don't like some of the commentary on Meghan," mused Jeremy. "I think it's just too harsh on her."

He added: "I think Harry brings it on himself sometimes."

The Duke has been remarkably open in recent months about his experiences as a working royal. He has shared insights into his childhood and his relationship with his father Prince Charles, in his Apple TV+ series with Oprah Winfrey, The Me You Can't See.

The Duke has also opened up on The Late Late Show in an interview with James Corden as well as his headline-grabbing Oprah Winfrey interview with wife Meghan earlier this year.

Channel 5 broadcaster Jeremy added that he hopes the couple do find their way.
