‘They feel as though it’s better to keep us, somehow, as the villains’

Prince Harry wants his “father and brother back”, the first look at a new ITV interview reveals.

ITV will show an exclusive interview with The Duke of Sussex next Sunday in which he will talk to ITV News at Ten presenter Tom Bradby.

In the twenty second preview clip, Harry tells Bradby “it never needed to be this way.”

Harry says in the preview: It never needed to be this way. The leaking and the planting… I want a family not an institution.”

“They feel as though it’s better to keep us, somehow, as the villains. They’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile.

“I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”

The 90 minute programme will be broadcast two days before Prince Harry’s autobiography ‘Spare’ is published on 10 January.

The interview is said to cover a range of subjects including his personal relationships, never-before-heard details surrounding the death of his mother, Diana, and a look ahead at his future.

Michael Jermey, ITV director of news and current affairs, said: “It is extremely rare for a member of the Royal Family to speak so openly about their experience at the heart of the institution.

“Tom Bradby’s interview with Prince Harry will be a programme that everyone with an informed opinion on the monarchy should want to watch.”

Ian Rumsey, ITN productions managing director and executive producer, added: “Harry’s version of events contains many elements we’ve never heard before, as viewers will see. It is a raw and intimate perspective on his relationships with the people closest to him and the moments that have shaped him.”

Harry: The Interview is on ITV1 and ITVX at 9pm on January 8
