Prince Harry says Royal family need unconscious bias training

Prince Harry claims Royal family need unconscious bias training if the institution is to survive

  • The Duke of Sussex said his relatives needed to educate themselves as he has
  • Harry said he wanted the royals to survive but that understanding race better
  • But despite eviscerating his family, Harry claimed he was ‘not angry anymore’

Prince Harry says the Royal Family needs racial awareness training if it is to survive as an institution.

In the latest bombshell interview to promote his memoir – out tomorrow – the Duke of Sussex said his relatives needed to educate themselves on ‘unconscious bias’ – as he has.

Harry said he wanted the royals to survive but that understanding race better would be ‘hugely beneficial’ for them.

Speaking to US TV network ABC, Harry was asked: ‘Do you think in the 21st century there’s a place for the British monarchy?’

Prince Harry says the Royal Family needs racial awareness training if it is to survive as an institution.

Harry answered: ‘I genuinely believe there is, not the way it is now.’

Former American football player turned TV anchor Michael Strahan then asked how the royals needed to ‘modernise’.

Harry said: ‘I think the same process that I went through regarding my own unconscious bias would be hugely beneficial to them.

‘It’s not racism, but unconscious bias if not confronted, if not acknowledged, if not learned and grown from, that can then move into racism. And the way that I understand it is that we all want to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.’

The Duke of Sussex claims in his new book that he was ‘knocked to the floor’ by William during a row over his wife, Meghan Markle. Pictured: The brothers at the funeral procession of their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II last year

Harry took aim once again at Camilla, Queen Consort, and claimed she did ‘everything she could to improve her own reputation’.

But despite eviscerating his family, Harry claimed he was ‘not angry anymore’.

He also grandly claimed that if he could reconcile with his family it would have a ‘ripple effect across the world’.

During the interview on Good Morning America, the prince repeatedly claimed he wanted to resolve his differences with his family – so long as they admitted they were wrong.

He said: ‘I don’t think we can ever have peace with my family unless the truth is out there. A lot that I can forgive, but there needs to be conversations in order for reconciliation and part of that has to be accountability.

‘I genuinely believe that, and that’s kind of what is pushing me. And if that doesn’t happen, then that’s very sad.’

Turning to Camilla, who he called ‘dangerous’ in the memoir for leaking private conversations to the Press, Harry claimed he had a ‘huge amount of compassion for her’ but admitted they ‘haven’t spoken in a long time.

He said: ‘You know I love every member of my family despite the differences, so when I see her we’re perfectly pleasant with each other. She’s my stepmother, I don’t look at her as an evil stepmother.

‘I see someone who married into this institution and has done everything that she can to, you know, improve her own reputation and her own image. For her own sake.’

He added: ‘There are things that will still anger me but I’m not angry anymore because I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.’

Mr Strahan asked Harry: ‘How would your mum feel about your relationship with your brother now?’

Harry said: ‘I think she’d be sad and looking at it long term to know that there were certain things we need to go through in order to heal the relationship, I think she would be heartbroken that it’s ended up where it ended up.

‘Heartbroken about the fact that William, his office were part of these stories and William and I made a deal, no matter what, we would never let our offices fight against each other.’

The allegations are expected to dismay the Prince of Wales, who has publicly supported mental health causes on several occasions

Mr Strahan asked: ‘You think he broke that pact?’

Harry replied: ‘Yes, the people he employed broke that pact.’

Asked if he had ‘any responsibility in the breakdown’, Harry admitted: ‘Without question, sure.’

But he claimed he tried to heal things behind the scenes with his father and brother.

In a poignant part of the interview Harry revealed what he said to his brother when they visited their mother’s grave in 2017 to mark the 20th anniversary of her death.

Harry said: ‘I talk (in the book how) at her grave, William and I (were) having that conversation, he felt as though she was very much in his life and helped set him up and he felt as though she’d now moved over and helped me set my life up.

‘I think my mother would realize the missed opportunity with Meghan, being part of the monarchy.’

Harry also denied there was a rift between him and the late Queen Elizabeth, saying she always ‘knew what was going on’.

The claims come hot on the heels of another interview with CBS show 60 Minutes yesterday, in which Harry claimed that Camilla was ‘dangerous’ and ‘left bodies in the street’ because she leaked private conversations to the Press.

In his memoir, Harry wrote that Camilla ‘sacrificed me on her personal PR altar’ and that he begged his father not to marry her.

Harry told CBS interviewer Anderson Cooper: ‘She was the villain, she was a third person in the marriage, she needed to rehabilitate her image.’

And speaking to Tom Bradby on ITV for a 90-minute special called Harry: The Interview, a visibly emotional Harry claimed the day the Queen died he experienced a ‘really horrible reaction’ from his family because they were briefing against him.

According to him, the fact that Meghan was an ‘American actress, divorced, bi-racial’ meant that his brother and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, didn’t like her from the start.

When Mr Bradby asked Harry if he agreed that the memoir was ‘scathing’ he physically recoiled.

Harry said: ‘Scathing? There’s no part of any of the things that I’ve said are scathing toward any member of my family, especially not my stepmother. There are things that have happened that have been incredibly hurtful.’

According to Harry, speaking out was the right thing because ‘silence only allows the abuser to abuse’.

The news come as Prince Harry says he called his therapist after being physically attacked by his brother William following a heated argument, according to an extraordinary excerpt from his new book.

The Duke of Sussex is set to claim in his memoir, Spare, that his older sibling left him with visible injuries after a furious row over his wife Meghan Markle, in which Harry accused him of ‘parroting the press narrative’ about her.

The explosive incident, during which William reportedly called the Duchess ‘difficult’, ‘rude’ and ‘abrasive’ is alleged to have taken place at Harry’s London home in 2019.

In one section of the book, which doesn’t come out until next week, Harry claims immediately following the argument he called his therapist instead of his wife.

According to the Guardian, which claims to have obtained a copy, Meghan later noticed the ‘scrapes and bruises’, leading to him coming clean about the bust-up with his brother.

It is not known how the outlet got a copy of the book, given the stringent security measures put in place by its publisher to prevent leaks.

In the extract Harry claims William ‘grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace and… knocked me to the floor’ during an extraordinary row at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

He said the argument came about when William wanted to talk about ‘the whole rolling catastrophe’ of their relationship, arriving at the cottage ‘piping hot’.  

In the dramatic passage, the Duke says his brother was not acting rationally, with both men shouting over each other and exchanging insults as the argument escalated.

He said his brother ended up knocking him to the ground, leaving him with a visible injury after he landed on ‘the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me’.

Harry added that his brother urged him to fight back, but left when he refused to do so, before later coming back to apologise.

The passage claims that when William left again he urged Harry not to ‘tell Meg about this’ and saying ‘I didn’t attack you, Harold’. 

Harry claims he first rang his therapist, before later telling his wife who ‘wasn’t that surprised, and wasn’t all that angry’.
