When referencing these comments, royal biographer Angela Levin, who has met and interviewed Prince Harry , described the heir apparent and his son's united interest in climate change as "very moving" but issued a blow to Prince Harry, which has been met with dismay from fans of the Sussexes.
Taking to Twitter she wrote: "Royal father and son working towards the same goals is very moving in what has been a very difficult year. I hope one day Harry will feel ashamed of himself."
Her comments came under fire from fans of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle , with fans accusing the royal biographer of being "anti-Sussex" and causing "unnecessary drama".
User @ThaisPimentel10 wrote "Shaming Harry without empathising with his real issues is just mean" while @mafoxj added: "Why are you anti-Sussex. Not just you but half the country. I had hoped they would have returned by now."

"Royal couples have always tended to adopt contrasting body language, from the Queen's very feminine regal poses versus Philip's more alpha, dashing body language and Diana's dazzle versus Charles's resignation to support role.
"Even Harry and Meghan have distinctly traditional masculine/feminine stereotypical body language together but William and Catherine seem to be emphatically equal in both status and project involvement."
@realwindsors blasted Ms Levin for involving Harry in her discussion of the project, writing: "This is great work being done, but please stop with the added drama by including Harry in this when he has nothing to do it. Unnecessary drama"
A further fan @CIB05688119 chimed in to add "Ashamed? For what? Thank goodness Harry allowed them to to realize it. Look how William et al have blossomed with a new found freedom. It took self reflection on all sides to achieve all the good deeds that have come from both brothers working on great projects. Think about them."

‘Reduce a lot of pressure on the environment!’ Prince Charles’ unusual eating habits revealed
Speaking to the BBC, the Prince of Wales, 72, explained:
"For years I haven't eaten meat and fish on two days a week and I don't eat dairy products on one day a week.
"Now I mean that's one way to do it – if more did that you would reduce a lot of the pressure on the environment and everything else.
"Because you see the thing about meat is very important – where does it come from, how is it grown?
"So if it's grass-based and from the right breeds, you know if it is better quality but eaten less often – that approach to farming is less damaging than the industrialised approach with intensive everything, and causing huge pressures and damage."

Kenyan safari lodge where Queen Elizabeth’s reign began forced into Covid-closure
The Treetops Hotel, located in the heart of Aberdare National Park, has closed its doors almost 90-years after it opened to the public.
The announcement comes after the Kenya Wildlife Service revealed Covid-induced travel restrictions caused a staggering 90 percent drop in the nation’s tourism revenue.
The United Nations estimates Africa’s total losses in the tourism industry could reach as high as £183billion in 2021.
The economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic has also led to the closure of Treetops sister hotel.

‘Restructure society!’ Prince Charles calls for change in push to end ‘wealthy man’s luxury’
The Prince of Wales, 72, risks upsetting the wider public with his push for drastic climate change action, an expert warns.

During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Sacerdoti claimed Prince Charles ‘ calls for change may not always be positively received.
He added that, for some, his calls to restructure society and the economy could be seen as a “wealthy man’s luxury”.

Beatrice and Eugenie ‘felt snubbed’ by Kate Middleton solo engagements for Queen's Jubilee
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie “felt snubbed” by Kate Middleton’s solo engagements with the Queen for her Jubilee, unearthed accounts claim.
Unearthed accounts claim the princesses "felt snubbed" by Kate during the celebration of the Queen's then-60-year reign.
Royal historian and journalist Catherine Ostler, author of 'The Duchess Countess', described the allegedly "chilly" relationship between Kate and Beatrice and Eugenie at the time in a column for the Daily Mail in 2016.
She quoted one royal insider as saying: "Royalty is all about pecking order, often in a cruelly blunt sense, and it is Kate who has all the toys and the position.
"Despite being the only young 'blood Princesses' (born royal), Beatrice and Eugenie have been reduced to walk-on parts in Royal Family life.
"It particularly hurt when Kate did solo engagements with the Queen during the Diamond Jubilee. They felt snubbed."
William and Kate’s ‘tremendous popularity’ enhanced with Earthshot Prize
Prince William and Kate Middleton have achieved “tremendous popularity” with the Earthshot Prize, a royal historian has told Express.co.uk.
Royal historian Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk that William and Kate's popularity is in part down to them championing issues they care about, such as with the Earthshot Prize.
The royal commentator and film critic said: "There is a tremendous popularity that he has with Catherine.
"The two are an ideal couple, and also they've taken on certain specific charities.
"William, I'm thinking of the Earthshot Prize for the environment, I'm thinking of mental health.
"Catherine too, her work for young children and so forth has been most impressive, her studies that really are significant."
Inside St James's Palace – why Princess Beatrice lives in palace unlike sister Eugenie

Now they have settled into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor with their newborn baby boy August.

Princess Margaret was ‘trendsetter in every way’ and showed ‘independence’ from royals
Often known as the glamourous younger sister of the more introverted and respectful Queen, Princess Margaret had a reputation for being a rebel within the Royal Family and liked to do things her own way.
The Countess of Snowdon, as she was otherwise known, has grown in popularity in recent years.
A spokesperson for Design Bundles spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about Princess Margaret's rising popularity and the explanation for this.
They said: "Princess Margaret was a trendsetter in every way, despite the centuries-old royal traditions she was born into.
"From being the first daughter of a King to marry a non-royal, to the wedding tiara she bought herself, rather than borrowed, her independence, confidence and commitment to style very much embody the values we celebrate today.
"Princess Margaret's marriage ceremony was also the first royal wedding to be televised.
"So it's no surprise that the occasion still draws such fascination today, as the UK's most popular royal wedding."
Kate and William ‘unified and equal’ while Meghan body language shows she’s the ‘leader’
Kate Middleton and Prince William dazzled on the green carpet on Sunday night for the first ever Earthshot Prize Awards.
Judi James, a body language expert, spoke to Express.co.uk: "William and Catherine's body language last night defined them as the ultimate royal power couple, arriving to promote what is such an important project for them with a display of status equality and unified team work.
"Catherine has come so far since her days when, as Kate Middleton, she walked behind William or posed shyly at his side.
"Even at their ill-fated launch of the 'Fab Four' Kate took a more passive role, with William promoting the fact that their charity plans were often led by her too.
"Arriving last night though, Catherine walked from the car beside William using very mirrored body language, with both their arms hanging confidently to their sides and with Catherine impressively ditching her signature small clutch bag to do so.”
Meghan Markle to be discussed as part of ‘white privilege’ lessons at private school
Meghan Markle and the “additional challenges” she may have faced in comparison with Kate Middleton upon joining the Royal Family are to be discussed at a private school as part of its new series of lectures on “white privilege”.
St Dunstan's, a private school in London with annual fees ranging from £12,501 to £19,068 depending on the age of its pupils, has introduced lectures discussing “white privilege”.
These lessons come after a surge in interest in the Black Lives Matter movement.
While St Dunstan’s accepts children from nursery to the age of 18, this course will be taught only from Year 9, when pupils are aged 13 or 14.
And Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is to be one of the topics of discussion during the lessons.
Nicholas Hewlett, headmaster at the school in Catford, southeast London, said teachers would “explore with students the difficulties faced by both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton when they joined the Royal Family but [learn] that Meghan Markle faced additional challenges based on social speculations associated with her race”, as reported by The Sunday Times.

‘Modest’ Kate and William upstage Meghan and Harry with ‘masterclass in regal behaviour’
Prince William and Kate’s actions at last night’s Earthshot Awards ceremony have been referred to as displaying “understated professionalism”, by a body language expert.
Body language expert Judi James told FEMAIL: "Their speeches on stage were performed separately rather than as an A-list double-act and they both delivered professionally, pointing focus towards their cause rather than themselves and the injection of subtle glamour they brought to the evening
"William’s understated professionalism was in contrast to his brother’s recent stage appearances that have involved much more of a rock-star-style revving up of the crowd and celebrity approach."
Ms James claimed that the actions of William contrast to that of his brother Prince Harry, 37, who has exhibited "rockstar" style behaviour previously.
Meghan and Harry could announce Lilibet’s christening ‘already happened’
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could announce Lilibet’s christening has “already happened”, according to claims made by a royal expert.
Meghan gave birth to Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple's second child, on June 4.
The couple's spokesperson said last week that decisions regarding Lilibet's christening were still being made and that any claims being made were "mere speculation".
One royal expert claimed in a podcast that Meghan and Harry may at some point announce that their daughter's christening has "already happened" in California and that details will be kept under wraps.
Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers told the Pod Save the Queen podcast:
"Who knows when they will be making their next trip here? Will it be the christening? Will it be for Christmas? I don't think it will be this year. Again, anything could happen.
"The word from their people is they haven’t decided [on the christening plans].
"I don't know if I necessarily take that at face value. I think they will probably drop an announcement that it's already happened and that will be all you know about it."
