Royal Family will be relieved and thankful as Harry leaves them out of live chat
In the latest round of press activity to promote his memoir, Prince Harry sat down for a live-streamed chat with trauma expert Dr Gabor Maté.
However, the chat was rather subdued compared to his others with the Duke of Sussex holding back on mentioning his estranged family altogether.
A previous interview with US broadcaster Anderson Cooper saw the Prince brand his step-mother Queen Consort Camilla as the "villain" and the interview with ITV journalist Tom Bradby saw him discuss how Prince William and Kate Middleton's stereotyping of Meghan Markle stopped them welcoming her into the royal fold.
However during the conversation with Dr Maté, Harry did not mention his brother Prince William, Kate or Camilla by name once.
Instead he discussed his time in the army, his drug use, and how the death of his mother Princess Diana deeply affected him.
One of very few references to the royals saw Harry discuss growing up in a "broken home" and how Meghan "saved" him from becoming stuck in his role as a royal.
Discussing the Prince's change in tone, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told the MailOnline: "The best that can be said is that this didn't make things worse."
"There was no direct attack on the monarch and there was also, although it was all in the background – the past he was escaping from – there was no direct attack at all on any member of the royal family."
Commenting on how the Royal Family will be feeling about this interview, Richard added: "I think there will be a lot of relief and thanks."
The Duke's reluctance to launch further attacks on the royals comes amid the Sussexes' eviction from Frogmore Cottage.
According to reports, King Charles made the decision shortly after the publication of Prince Harry’s book Spare – with sources claiming that the Duke’s criticisms of his step-mother, Queen Consort Camilla, by calling her an "wicked stepmother" had been the “last straw”.
The eviction has led to further questions surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's possible attendance at the King's coronation in May.
During his ITV interview Harry suggested that there was a chance of reconciliation if his family members met him in private, and that could potentially lead to him attending the historic event.
He told Tom: "The ball is in their court. There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they’re [the family] willing to sit down and talk about it."
The couple are believed to have been invited to the coronation, however it remains unclear if they will take up the offer, or remain at home to celebrate their son Archie's fourth birthday.
