Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, made his first royal outing this week since his son’s accusations against the family. Charles looked happy and healthy while out with his wife, Duchess Camilla.


On Tuesday, May 25, 2021, Prince Charles, 72, and his wife, Duchess Camilla, 73, visited Coventry to celebrate the city for being the UK’s City of Culture 2021. Images and videos of the visit were shared on Instagram.

The couple also visited Coventry Cathedral to mark the 59th anniversary of its Consecration year. The Duchess of Cornwall and the Prince of Wales also stopped by an art gallery and an old hospital.

The royal couple’s outing was the first one since Charles’ son’s documentary, “The Me You Can't See,” aired. In the five-part AppleTV+ show, Prince Harry, 36, accused Charles of making him “suffer” when he was a child.

Harry’s new documentary, co-created with media mogul Oprah Winfrey, launched last week Monday with a gripping trailer. The Duke of Sussex was speaking up about mental health awareness in the documentary.


The short series came just as the world was coming down from the shock of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tell-all interview with Winfrey in March 2021. During that sit-down, they blamed the Royal Family for neglect.

Meghan accused the royals of refusing to assist her when she had mental health issues. The couple also blamed the British Royal Family for failing to protect them from the media and the lies they spread.


Another tell-all interview that Harry partook in recently was one with Dax Shepard. While featured on the “Armchair Expert” podcast, Prince Harry said his father had treated him “the way he was treated” as a child.

He explained that he and his wife moved from the UK to the US to break and end the cycle of the genetic pain he’d suffered while growing up. Harry felt the Queen and his father had failed him in life.


However, during the May 13, 2021, interview, the Duke of Sussex said he wasn’t blaming anyone. He acknowledged how the pain and suffering he went through was because his parents went through the same thing.

Harry just wanted parents to realize and acknowledge their own pain so they can avoid filtering it down to their own children. The royal is a father to son, Archie, 2, and expecting a baby girl sometime this year.


Archie was born on May 6, 2019, and according to Daily Mail, his grandfather has only seen him twice. Harry’s brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Duchess Kate, only met the child a handful of times.

The little boy met his cousins, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, once. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex rarely left their Windsor home after Archie's birth, apart from taking two holidays.
