Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley, 65, has claimed Prince Harry, 36, needs to “think a little bit harder before he opens his mouth”. It comes after the Duke of Sussex took aim at his family in several interviews following his exit from Royal life with wife Meghan Markle, 39.

Harry also controversially aired his views on the American constitution and the First Amendment, which Richard has branded a “big faux pas”.

Urging Harry to change his ways, Richard said in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk: “I do think that he does need to step back and just think a little bit harder before he opens his mouth.

“I think, for example, the second attack on his family in the podcast was a mistake. And it was unfair because they can’t reply. 

“And I think as far as he’s concerned, it was a big faux pas to criticise the First Amendment in the American Constitution. 

“If you’re going to do that, you have to know what you’re talking about.” 

The journalist went on to warn that Harry could potentially “alienate people” in both his new home in America, and his former home in the UK if he continues to be very outspoken.

Richard continued: “I think he needs to be very careful because if you’re not careful, you’ll alienate people on both sides of the pond.

“You just want to think about what you say, and I just think he’s shooting from the hip a bit too much at the moment.”

 

Harry shared his views on the US constitution during an appearance on The Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard back in May.

He said: “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.”

The Duke was hitting out at the First Amendment due to the intrusive behaviour of the paparazzi after he and his other half Meghan decided to relocate to California.  

The First Amendment enshrined the constitutional rights to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and a free press.

The amendment was adopted in 1791, eight years after Britain recognised the United States of America as an independent nation following the American Revolution.

Harry also opened up about his reluctance to participate in his royal duties in his 20s because of “what it did to his mum”.

Princess Diana died aged 36 when she was killed in a car accident in Paris.

The incident has been blamed on paparazzi who were chasing the car that Harry and Prince William’s mum was in at the time.

Harry previously complained to Oprah Winfrey that he was “totally cut off financially” when he and Meghan decided to quit their roles as Senior Royals and move to America.

He said in their bombshell chat: “I was totally cut off financially. 

“My family cut me off – if I didn’t have what my mum left me, we wouldn’t have been able to do this. All I wanted to do was keep my family safe.”

The couple have signed a lucrative deal with Netflix believed to be worth around £100million and with Spotify, worth around £30million.

Harry said regarding the deal: “We didn’t have a plan. [The Netflix deal] was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us. 

“[They cut me off] In the first quarter of 2020.”
