Alex Beresford took to Twitter today to respond to a tweet from journalist Omid Scobie, who co-wrote Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family. The royal biographer shared a post, which appeared to support Prince Harry’s most recent comments about his family, after he was criticised for talking about Prince Charles and the Queen’s parenting.

Omid drew attention to a biography, which he said was approved by the Prince of Wales, in his latest tweet.

“In 1994, Prince Charles authorised a biography on himself by journalist Jonathan Dimbleby.

“One chapter in it—approved by the prince—talks in great detail about his unresolved childhood issues with ’emotionally distant’ parents.”

The post was shared in view of his 67,500 followers

Alex re-tweeted the post on his own social media account.

“You’ve got to be kidding?” the Good Morning Britain star added, when she shared it with his 253,000 followers.

Many took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts.

Some agreed that Prince Harry should be allowed to talk about his own feelings and experiences.

“If Harry’s honesty helps one other family then it’s right for him to discuss this.

“There are many family issues that pass down from generation to generation. Emotional distance, addiction, abuse, inability to express feelings etc etc. Breaking the cycle is very difficult,” one social media user wrote.

“I agreed w you 100% on Megan, but disagree here. The absence or perceived rejection of love from a parent is difficult for anyone, king or not. We are all human.(sic)

“This could explain a lot, and be healing for his kids if he was able to acknowledge and understand it,” another added.

During an appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, the Duke of Sussex said that he wanted to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering”.

He said: “There is no blame. I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.

“But certainly, when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered…I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway.

“So we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘That happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’”

Alex’s co-stars Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard discussed the royal’s new interview on Good Morning Britain today.

Kate said she wondered if Harry realised the “devastating impact” his comment would make.

The presenter thought he sounded “entitled and without empathy,” when he told his story.
