Prince Harry previously claimed that he wanted to tell the truth to move past his issues with his family. He alleged that he couldn't do it privately because the palace leaked stories, and he wasn't able to speak to the Queen. However, his mother's former butler argued, according to a report.
Did Prince Harry Lie When He Said He Couldn't Address Family Issues Privately?
Princess Diana's former royal butler, Paul Burrell, doesn't buy Prince Harry's excuse about sharing his family issues with the public, saying he couldn't do it privately. Burrell argued that if he wanted to settle his concerns privately, there was a way.
"I know that there is a way he could've addressed all of these issues in private with his family and for him to say there was no access to his grandmother the queen at that time is nonsense," Burrell said on behalf of Slingo (via Showbiz CheatSheet).

"I know that world and I know how it works and I know the queen never closed her door to any members of her family. If Harry wanted to, Harry could've walked up from Frogmore Cottage with his wife, with a bunch of flowers, walked up the wooden steps that led to the dog door, up a spiral staircase onto a red-carpeted corridor, turn right and right again into the queen's sitting rooms where she would've been."
Burrell alleged that Prince Harry "is trying to pull the wool over y our eyes." However, the former royal aide said the Duke of Sussex couldn't fool him because "I know how it works."
"The general public doesn't know how it works and they will take your word as gospel, but there are others who know exactly how it works," Burrell said.

Prince Harry Has Become Media-Minded?
Burrell added that he couldn't figure out what was going on with Prince William's brother. He felt that he was being "brainwashed."
Burrell reminded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that they were free to leave the House of Windsor, but it wasn't right for them to trash the palace.
"If you want to leave that's fine, leave and do your own thing but don't keep going back and slinging hand grenades into the House of Windsor, the place you just left, because you couldn't fit in," Burrell said.

Burrell had served the royals for over two decades. He believed his knowledge about the royal family was enough to counter what Prince Harry was saying about the firm.
"I think I'm fairly balanced in what I say coming from that place and knowing how the establishment works after 20-plus years of service. I don't know what's happened to Harry. It's as if he's been brainwashed, he's changed so much. He was such a free, easy-going boy full of fun and now he's got very serious and very media-minded."
