Kelly Osbourne hails from rock ‘n’ roll royalty, and she has strong feelings for the British monarchy – especially when it comes to Prince Harry.
The 38-year-old gave her unfiltered opinion on King Charles III‘s son during the Tuesday, June 20 episode of the “I’ve Had It” podcast after he praised the 74-year-old monarch. When a co-host argued that Charles should have put his drama with Harry, 38, aside to place it closer to the front of his May coronation, Osbourne disagreed.
“I think Prince Harry is a fucking king,” she said, slamming the former military pilot for “moaning, whining [and] complain.
Osbourne added: “[He’s like], ‘Woe to me, I’m the only one with mental problems. My life was so hard. Everybody’s life was f-king hard. You were the prince of a fucking country who dressed up as a fucking nazi king, and now you’re trying to come back as a pope? Suck it.
Podcasters burst out laughing, recounting Ozzy Osbourneher daughter that she had a convincing argument.
Harry spoke about his ups and downs as a member of the British royal family since stepping down from his top job with Meghan Markle in 2020. The couple – who share son Archie, 4, and daughter Lilibet, 2 – later moved to California as they tried to chart their careers in a new direction.
Buckingham Palace confirmed in early 2021 that the Sussexes would not be returning as senior royals, shortly before the duo sat down for a bombshell reveal on CBS. During the interview, Harry alleged that his father “stopped taking my calls” after he and Meghan, 41, announced their decision to step down.
“There’s a lot to do,” he said of his relationship with Charles in March 2021. “I feel really disappointed because he’s been through something similar, he knows what the pain feels like … I will always love him. There is a lot of bad that happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to heal this relationship.
At the time, a source exclusively told We Weekly that Charles wanted his son to address his issues “in private” instead of “sacrificing his whole family in public”.
Harry continued to shed light on his life within the palace walls in his early memoirs, Spare, which came out earlier this year. Throughout the book, the Duke reflected on the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and the pressures of growing up in the spotlight.
The Invictus Games founder’s revelations have widened the rift between him and his family, including Charles and his brother Prince William – prompting many questions about whether Harry would be included in the King’s coronation celebrations. In the end, he attended the festivities in London solo, with Meghan declining the royal invitation to stay home with the couple’s children. Harry sat in the third row during the service.
Editor of True Royalty TV Nick Bullen said exclusively We after the historic event that the coronation felt like “the beginning of the end for the Sussexes’ interaction with the Royal Family” after years of drama. “It was like the family had kind of put a line in the ground and [said]’Okay, we’re moving on,'” he said in May.
