Prince Harry urged to help ‘end monarchy’ after blasting Royal Family again

Prince Harry has been urged to help bring an end to the monarchy following his latest complaints about royal life.

The 36-year-old told Hollywood pal Dax Shepard on his American Expert podcast that living as a member of the Royal Family was "a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo".

He also said he wants to "break the cycle" of the "pain and suffering" of his upbringing with his own children, appearing to criticise the way he was raised by his dad Prince Charles.

Now anti-monarchist organisation Republic is urging the Duke of Sussex to help end the monarchy because his "sentiments are democratic and republican at heart".

Chief executive Graham Smith said: "When he quotes Meghan saying: 'You don't need to be a princess, you can create the life that will be better than any princess,' that's a democratic, republican sentiment.

"That's a call to bring the monarchy to a close. It's time we all moved on.

"For the sake of Harry and William's children, and for the sake of British democracy.

"Now is the time to decide to bring the curtain down on the whole show when the Queen's reign comes to an end."

Harry's apparent criticism of his upbringing come months after the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey where he and wife Meghan Markle made a string of accusations against the Royal Family.

They included the allegation that an unnamed member of the family was concerned about their baby Archie's skin tone.

Harry discussed his childhood on the American Expert podcast, where he was promoting his new Apple TV+ series about mental health, The Me You Can't See, with Oprah.

He said: "There is no blame. I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say: ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’"

Republic's Mr Smith added: "He may not have reached that conclusion yet, but Harry's sentiments are democratic and republican at heart.

"No doubt influenced by his American wife. His privilege colours his judgement, but he is showing a way out for the royals and for the country.

"An amicable end to the monarchy is possible."

Daily Star has approached Harry's representatives for a response.
