Harry’s ‘tactic’ to reconcile with William ahead of Spare ‘idiotic’, says expert

Prince Harry’s efforts to build bridges with his dad and brother have been labelled an “idiotic tactic” by a royal expert.

Writing in News.com.au, Daniella Elser slammed the Prince’s efforts to make amends with his family, arguing it “makes no at all”.

The claims from the Duke of Sussex come as part of a trailer for an upcoming interview, in which he says: “I would like to get my father back. I would like to get my brother back."

He also comments "I want a family, not an institution" and "they've shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile".

But according to Elser Harry’s strategy, ahead of the release of his upcoming memoir Spare, is a poor one with little chance of coming off.

In her scathing reflections on the move, Elser wrote: "Prince Harry has revealed he wants to reconcile with his father and brother. But his plan to achieve that makes no sense at all."

In the piece, she continued: “And yet, Harry wants his father and brother 'back'. How exactly does he see this happening?

“The ‘logic’ in all of this requires such mental contortions I think I need a lie-down.

“The truly unsettling thing in all of this?

"The week has not even really begun, with hours of interviews to be watched (or, endured) and hundreds of pages of Spare to be ploughed through yet.

"What will Harry’s relationship with his family look like on the other side of this?”

Elsewhere in the piece, Elser was no kinder, writing: “It’s hard to find the right words here to truly quantify how stupefying, how ridiculous, how downright idiotic the Duke’s logic is here.

"Harry wants his family 'back' and the way he is going about that is by pillorying them afresh to a global TV audience?

“By giving an interview to US 60 Minutes that was being promoted on Tuesday as 'explosive'?"

Of the trailer for the upcoming interview, Elser said titbits of information about his efforts to communicate were fed to the media by the Royal Family.

"They will feed or have a conversation with the correspondent,” he said.

"And that correspondent will literally be spoon-fed information and write the story. And at the bottom of it they will say that they've reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment. But the whole story is Buckingham Palace commenting.”

The Prince continued: "So when we're being told for the last six years 'we can't put a statement out to protect you.' But you do it for other members of the family. It becomes – there becomes a point when silence is betrayal."

Harry's interview with Tom Bradbury will air on January 10 on ITV, and another with Anderson cooper will feature in 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper on January 8.
