As a military spouse I can’t believe Prince Harry has put his own FAMILY at risk…but I still feel sorry for him, says GB News host STEPHEN DIXON

Harry is a tormented soul - we should try and understand his pain, even if we feel betrayed

Another opinion piece on Prince Harry I hear you cry? What more is there to say?

Well perhaps something that isn’t said very much at the moment – I feel very sorry about what is going on.

There is so much fury and anger, not only coming from ‘H’ and ‘M’, but also the British public.

I understand that. We feel somewhat betrayed – a person who we cherished, who we felt very protective over, seems to have turned on us, but it does us no good to be angry.

We need to try to understand what he is going through. Here is a man who is clearly tormented.

Losing his mother very much in the spotlight, searching for love amidst mental troubles and clearly feeling like the ‘spare’ that he necessarily is.

Whether or not we blame Megan for bringing this to a head, for encouraging him to rebel against his family, is sort of beside the point.

She is what she is – and let’s be honest, we don’t really know what she is or what she stands for – but that aside, he would be a tormented man with or without her.

Some of the most shocking revelations to me are about his military service.

Something which saved him, so he says, and yet he talks brazenly about removing 25 Taliban ‘chess pieces’ from the board.

I am a military spouse – I have some insight into how the military works. These things are not spoken of, and certainly not in these terms.

It puts serving military personnel at risk, it puts allies at risk AND it puts himself and his family at risk, for years to come.

On top of that, the military family, which he says saved him, is turning against him – or at least withdrawing support.

They’re the words of someone who has pressed the self-destruct button, who seems to be taking guidance from people who don’t have his best interests at heart.

They’re promoting money, stardom and revenge rather than love, reconciliation and his own inner peace.

It worries me immensely. I worry for Harry as a man, as a human being.

The transition from being revered to reviled in his own country will damage him for the rest of his life.

I, for one, hope it can in someway be resolved, but quietly and away from the spotlight.

Harry wouldn’t agree, but the ball is in his court.
