While Prince Albert empathized with the couple, explaining he "can understand the pressure that they were under," he told BBC World News' Yalda Hakim on Thursday, March 25, that he found Harry and Meghan's "public display of dissatisfaction" inappropriate given how they delivered their message.
He added that "these types of conversations should be held within the intimate quarters of the family" and said "it doesn't really have to be laid out in the public sphere like that."
The Prince of Monaco further admitted that their bombshell CBS tell-all on Sunday, March 7, "did bother me a little bit." He said that while he could "understand where they're coming from in a certain way," he didn't think it was "the appropriate forum to be able to have these kinds of discussions."
As OK! previously reported, Harry and Meghan — who are expected to welcome their second child later this year — announced last January that they intended to "step back as senior members of the Royal Family" and split their time between the U.K. and North America.
At the time, Prince Albert told Hakim that he wishes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "the best."
"It's a difficult world out there, and I hope that he can have the judgment and wisdom to make the right choices," the royal said of the red-headed prince.
During the couple's tell-all, the Suits alum confessed to having suicidal thoughts while working as a senior royal member. Meghan told Oprah that she "went to the institution, and I said I needed to go somewhere to get help." However, Meghan claimed she was told she couldn't seek assistance because "it wouldn’t be good for the institution."
OK! previously reported that Archie's mother also alleged she was "silenced" by the institution and cited the royal family's "lack of support" as one of the reasons her and her husband decided to step away from their royal life.
Of the many shocking claims made against the royals, Meghan left Oprah speechless when she claimed there were "concerns" and "conversations" regarding the color of Archie's skin before he was born.
