Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has slammed Prince Harry, 36, for “exploring his innermost feelings on television, in front of an audience of millions” on his Apple TV Show, The Me You Can’t See. Speaking in his column for The Times, the motoring expert blasted the Prince for addressing his life growing up as part of the royal family in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying that as an army officer he “should’ve known better”.

This man is an army officer, so he should know better

Speaking about how he approaches his problems, Jeremy hit out at the Prince for his Apple TV Show in an article that said: “I’m happy to report that bottling it all up has never done me any harm.”

Addressing Labour leader Keir Starmer’s appearance on former GMB host Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, the car fanatic blasted the politician for candidly opening up about his personal life on TV.

Speaking about the frank approach, Jeremy said: “And I certainly can’t see why you would want to explore your innermost feelings on television, in front of an audience of millions.”

The Grand Tour went on to brand Prince Harry as “another offender” for his Apple TV Show The Me You Can’t See, which saw him make explosive claims about his upbringing as a senior member of the Royal family.

The owner of Diddly Squat farm said that the Prince “should’ve known better” than to discuss his personal life on an international TV show, before re-naming the hit series.

Jeremy said: “Harry Markle is another offender.

“This man is an army officer, so he should know better than to make a programme in which he waxes lyrical about the awfulness of his upbringing.

“The Me You Can’t See is what it’s called. Though “The Me You Don’t Want to See” is nearer the mark”, Jeremy continued.

He also continued to add that “spoiled brats” opening up about their mental health issue will detract from claims of others who also speak out about their mental health problems.

Jeremy added we needed to pay close attention to and listen out “for the plaintive cry from the next Robin Williams”.

However, he added that it: “won’t be possible if the screen is full of echoes from a million mosquitoes flapping around in a state of unhappiness because someone just said something horrid on Instagram.”

The farming star went on to reveal that he has previously dealt with feelings of “unhappiness” by having a “stiff upper lip” or by talking to a friend.

He added that if he thought he had a problem with his mother, he would be able to address it “while doing the washing-up”, instead of discussing his feelings in view of millions.

Jeremy previously weighed in on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s split from royal life in January 2020, warning that the Sussexes would not enjoy a happy ending.

His comments in The Sun came after Harry and Meghan decided to leave behind royal duties.

Mr Clarkson said: “The tale of Harry and Meghan is an epic love story and I wish them both well, but I genuinely fear that it will not have a happy ending.”

The Top Gear presenter’s views come as a royal expert claimed that the Queen was unaware that Prince Harry was going to drag the Royal Family into his series on mental health.

True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat host Kate Thornton said that the Queen would have been “unaware” that Harry would involve the royals in his Apple TV series on mental health, in which he accused his family of showing “total neglect”

She said: “We know he applied for permission from the Queen at the beginning of this series he made with Oprah, over two years ago. And she signed off on it, probably unaware of how the narrative would become so personal.”

On his father, Prince Harry said in the Apple TV series: “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, ‘Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you.'”
