Alan Titchmarsh hit back at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview as he said Prince Charles is the “hardest working man” he knows. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed they had received little help from the Royal Family over complaints of growing public and media pressure. Harry claimed his father of failing to return his calls and claimed William was “trapped” inside the monarchy.
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Mr Titchmarsh said: “I wouldn’t comment on the interview at all except to say that the work the Prince of Wales has done for this country is self-evident.
“If you look at what he’s achieved during his life, we need to value that as well.
“It’s very easy to judge other people on their families but most of us know, we don’t know the inside stories on all these families.
“It’s far better to judge people as we know them.
“My knowledge of the Prince of Wales is an incredibly hard-working, the hardest working man I know who has achieved so much in his life and I value his input into our society enormously.”
It comes as The Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have appointed two NHS spin doctors to oversee their communications.
Simon Enright, currently director of communications at the NHS and formerly the deputy editor of BBC Newsnight, will be joining Clarence House to take charge of Charles’ public relations.
Meanwhile, Victoria O’Byrne, director of communications for NHS Test and Trace, will be joining Kensington Palace to work with William and Kate.

Both are expected to start in May.
They are tasked with repairing the reputation of the royal family after the shocking allegations made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this month.
Mr Enright, 51, has played a pivotal role in managing the communications of the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic.
