Prince Harry has claimed his mother Princess Diana would have realised the Royal Family's "missed opportunity" by failing to welcome Meghan Markle into the firm in his latest interview to promote his autobiography.

The Duke bemoaned his family for wasting the opportunity to learn from Meghan Markle in an interview with American broadcaster ABC.

Harry also said "he can not get out" of the Royal Family and that he was "born into service".

Prince Harry told ABC: “I think the same process that I went through with regarding my own unconscious bias would be hugely beneficial to them.

“Not racism, but unconscious bias, if not confronted, if not learned and grown from, that can then move into racism.

“There was an enormous missed opportunity with my wife.”

During the interview, he added: “I think my mother would have realised the missed opportunity with Meghan being part of the institution, part of the monarchy.”

The Duke of Sussex also outlined the bad terms he is on with his family even before realising his bombshell autobiography.

He told Good Morning America: “I thought about it long and hard, and as far as I see it the divide couldn’t be greater before this book.”

Harry added: “I’m not angry anymore.

"There are things that will still anger me, but I’m not angry anymore, because I am exactly where I am supposed to be."

Prince Harry also said during the interview with Good Morning America that he was “born into service”, adding: “It runs in my blood.”

The Duke also spoke about his remaining links to the Royal Family and his future relationship with the Firm.

Harry said: “I can’t ever get out and I’m incredibly aware of my position.

“I’m incredibly grateful for the life that I’ve had and continue to live.

“But there’s no version of me being ever able to get out of this.

"I was stunned that my family would allow security to be taken away, especially at the most vulnerable point for us.”
