PRINCE HARRY was told he needs to learn how to behave more “statesmanlike” – just as Prince William does.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward launched a scathing attack on the Prince in which she suggested he needed to act more like his older brother. The Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, have come under fire and received harsh criticism after flying on four private jets in the space of 11 days. The decision made by the couple irked the public as they previously heard Harry and Meghan campaign for the environment on a number of occasions.
When addressed by the issue at a conference in Amsterdam, Prince Harry claimed he only did it to ensure his family’s safety.
Writing in The Sun Ms Seward said: “Harry has always rushed in without considering the consequences, unlike his brother William, who is now regarded as someone with statesmanlike qualities.”
This has followed a series of PR nightmares for the Sussex’s since the couple were wed in 2018.
Ms Seward added: “If Harry and Meghan slowed down and took things more gently, instead of this frantic grappling for approval and attention, they might win public support.”

The editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine went on to suggest Harry should follow his mothers example because Princess Diana knew how to deal with the media.
The royal biographer believed at the moment, with the seemingly unending criticism, Prince Harry probably deemed the media as his enemy.
Ms Seward claims the media “have become hostile because of his own attitude”.
She said: “Looking at the endless criticism, he probably cursed the people he now sees as his enemy – the British media.”

The royal expert recalled when she wrote an article the late Princess of Wales considered “wrong and inaccurate.”
Princess Diana then invited her to her apartment at Kensington Palace for a “girlie chat” to win her over.
Ms Seward advised Prince Harry to “flatter them and make them your supporter”.
She added that no matter what Prince Harry’s dislike for the press, he has to smile and make friends with them.

The Sussexes were reminded by Ms Seward that even if the public is very generous in giving them goodwill it is “finite.”
This follows backlash for Harry and Meghan after they rejected an invitation from the Queen to visit her in Balmoral.
The Queen invites members of the Royal Family to join her for a short spell during her two-month stay at her Scottish estate.
Last month Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, visited the Queen there with their three children.

Harry and Meghan apparently felt Archie was too young to make the trip to Scotland to see his great-grandmother.
A royal source said: “Harry and Meghan had no plans to go to Balmoral this summer as they felt Archie was too young.
“It’s a bit odd, as his age didn’t stop them taking him to Ibiza for a week and then to see Elton John in France.”
Meghan’s pregnancy meant the couple did not visit last year.
