Prince Harry was ‘worshipped’ in the palace and now staff are ‘horrified’ by him

Prince Harry was 'worshipped' by royal staff but that view has now changed dramatically, a palace source has claimed.

Senior royal sources say Harry and Meghan Markle's portrayal of Buckingham Palace has created a "culture of fear".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with talkshow legend Oprah Winfrey last month for a tell-all interview.

They spoke about racism, mental health and the perpetuation of "falsehoods" from within The Firm. The pair spoke about the lead-up of their decision to step down as senior royals before moving to the US to start a new life.

But now, staff claim they've cut their ties with the 36-year-old Prince, after his recent interview.

One source told The Times : “There are people, including young women in the households, who are now feeling nervous and afraid about going out on [royal] engagements because of what might happen due to what has been said.

"Staff are fearful of attacks on social media and what bomb might land next.”

Harry and Meghan, 39, quit royal life in March 2020 before the move was officially confirmed earlier this year.

Another source said: “Harry was worshipped by most people in the household; now most people are horrified by him.”

During the bombshell chat, Meghan told Oprah that aides had once told her not to gout for lunch with friends to minimise exposure.

A senior aide has hit back claiming when her mother, Doria Ragland, was over for Archie's birth, the royal "wouldn't let her mother go into Windsor".

The royal couple also accused a senior member of making a racist comment regarding what skin colour Archie would have when he was born.

Days later, Prince William told reporters that the royal family were 'very much not racist' in response to the allegations.

At the time, a statement from Buckingham Palace sent on behalf of the Queen, said "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”

One royal source said that the Oprah interview “has done real harm to the family, the individuals, the institution and the country”.

The royal aide also added: “The institution needs to look hard at itself and listen.”

Harry and Meghan are now living in Montecito, California, and have since launched a Spotify podcast and signed a Netflix deal – rumoured to be worth over £100million.
