Richard Madeley has slammed Prince Harry for "airing his dirty laundry in public" after his recent interviews about life in the Royal family.

Amid rumours the royals could ditch their long-standing “never complain, never explain” policy, Richard hit back by saying he was fed up of hearing about the feud.

Labelling the arguments between Harry and his relatives as “deeply embarrassing”, Richard argued that he would hate to have his family’s business made such a topic of discussion.

"I don't really want to see any family washing their dirty linen in public!” Richard told his Good Morning Britain co-stars during Monday's show.

"I agree with you it is important to talk and we all know that Harry has had acres of therapy and he has had these conversations in private.

"But I don't think it is remotely appropriate for him to actually talk in the detail that he has in public about his grandparents and about his father."

"I don't want to hear it,” he continued. “And when I do, I am embarrassed for that family, because I know that I would hate it.

"As a family member myself, as a family man, I would loathe it!”

Richard's comments come after it was claimed that the Queen may speak out over allegations Prince Harry and Meghan Markle didn't ask her permission to use her pet name for their new daughter, Lilibet – which have already been strenuously denied by the Sussex camp.

Harry is now taking a five-month break from public life and work commitments to spend time with his new daughter, and their two-year-old son, Archie.

The family is currently residing in California, having moved there last year after removing themselves from royal duties.

Over the past few months, both have spoken out about their time in the royal family, causing much controversy.

Most notably was Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, which saw her say she was left "feeling suicidal" amid the pressure of royal duties, and alleged a senior Royal had "expressed concern" about her then unborn child's skin colour while she was pregnant with Archie.

In May, Prince Harry opened up about his own mental health during a discussion on the podcast Armchair Expert, comparing his life in the monarchy to The Truman Show and being in a zoo.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
