Prince Harry (opens in new tab) has demanded that the Royal Family 'just come clean' and apologise to his wife Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) as he says he will continue to fight 'the good fight' and stand up for her.

Prince Harry has demanded the Royal Family apologise to his wife Meghan Markle in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, conducted to promote his newly released memoir Spare.

Using the interview to reach out to his family, Harry said, "You know what you did, and I now know why you did it. And you've been caught out, so just come clean." 

He also explained that he and Meghan would not be separated from his family "if people had listened" when he first spoke about his concerns. He added, "That's the saddest part about it - it was all so avoidable. But they just couldn't help themselves."

While his comments made it clear that he wants an apology, what that apology is for remains unclear. In the past he has spoken candidly about royals who have been opposed to his relationship with Meghan, but during this interview he gave no specifics instead remaining cryptic in his accusations. 

Elsewhere in the interview, Harry admitted he was confused why people found it so "shocking and outrageous" that he was telling, what he called, the "truthful" side of his story. 

He also added that he wanted to continue fighting "the good fight" by standing up for his wife and encouraging other men to do the same. He asked, "If you don't lead by example, what is the point in living?"

Also in the interview, Harry said he told his family that, especially when it came to Meghan, the decisions they were making would end up make them look bad. He also shared that while they may not like him now for drawing attention to their faults, he believes they will eventually be grateful and thank him for talking about his issues.
