Karl Stefanovic has hit out against Prince Harry after the Duke’s latest interview where he compared his royal life to a mix “between The Truman Show and living in a zoo”.

The Duke of Sussex also took aim at Prince Charles in his appearance on the Armchair Expert with Dax Shepherd podcast, saying Charles passed “genetic pain and suffering” onto him.

He also revealed the realisation he had in his 20s that he didn’t want to be involved in royal life.

Coming after Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Stefanovic signalled he’d had enough of Harry’s “whining”.

“It’s a great thing that he got away from all that prying press in the UK,” Stefanovic said sarcastically.

When co-host Allison Langdon sympathised with Harry’s mental health struggles and said “you have got to take the mental health stuff pretty seriously”, Stefanovic doubled down on his criticism.

“Of course, Ally, but I’m just saying it’s ridiculous how he keeps whining about his childhood. He grew up in privilege, in a palace,” Stefanovic countered.

“I mean, just give it a rest bro.

“He looks happier too when he was partying in Vegas, I’m just saying.”

Stefanovic was so “riled” by Harry’s latest outburst that he returned to the subject later in the show.

“The guy doesn’t need to go from his [Californian] mansion and start rabbiting on about how hard life is when he has got enormous privilege, and to keep bagging his family,” he said.

“Just get on with it. Take a lesson out of the Queen’s book and just get on with it. Carry on. I’m not saying anything more about that … it’s really riled me.”

Harry described the “get on with it” attitude in his latest interview and said his desire to “break the cycle” within his own family drove the move to California.

“It’s the job right? Grin and bear it. Get on with it. I was in my early 20s and I was thinking I don’t want this job, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be doing this,” he said.

“Look what it did to my mum. How am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family, when I know it’s going to happen again?”
