Prince Albert II of Monaco Criticizes Harry and Meghan Interview

Prince Albert of Monaco criticizes Meghan and Harry's interview 

After Oprah's interview with Meghan and Harry, opinions are divided. Some applaud the royal couple, others criticize. Famously controversial Prince Albert is also speaking up. 

The explosive interview by Duchess Meghan (39) and Prince Harry (36) made waves around the world. There was talk of racism, suicidal thoughts, and lack of help from the firm. Many take the side of Meghan and Harry, others see the interview through rather critical eyes.

One of the critics is Prince Albert (63), who on Thursday spoke to BBC World News about Meghan and Harry.

Prince Albert talks about Oprah interview with Meghan and Harry

Prince Albert was asked by BBC World News about his opinion on the interview Oprah with Meghan and Harry. He believes that "dissatisfaction" should stay behind closed doors.

"It did bother me a little bit", said Grace Kelly's son. "I can understand where they're coming from in a certain way, but I think it wasn't the appropriate forum to be able to have these kinds of discussions."

He did sympathize and say he "can understand the pressure that they were under," but that "these types of conversations should be held within the intimate quarters of the family... It doesn't really have to be laid out in the public sphere like that."

Even if the 63-year-old is a bit disappointed he still wishes the best for the pair and says of Harry, "It's a difficult world out there, and I hope that he can have the judgement and wisdom to make the right choices."

Prince Albert II of Monaco's Illegitimate Children

The leader of Monaco has his own famous controversial history that he chooses to keep private. He has had 2 children out of wedlock and has a third in question. One was produced from a one-night stand and another form a 6-year secret romance.

He did not meet his daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi until she was 11-years-old and stopped being involved in his son Nicole Coste Grimaldi's life when he married the beautiful Charlene Wittstock. 

Prince Albert II of Monaco has since had the adorable twins Prince Jaques and Princess Gabriella. His other two (and possible third) love children do not have Royal titles because they were born out of wedlock. So it is understandable why the Monarch prefers to keep Royal matters private.
