Cundy spoke out on Harry not acknowledging Father's Day publicly

Prince Harry was “noticeably absent” on Father’s Day and the Duke of Sussex’s decision not to mark the occasion with a public message to his father has been dubbed “unforgivable” by a furious Lizzie Cundy.

The royal commentator hit out at Harry but acknowledged he may have opted to reach out to his father privately.

His brother, Prince William, marked the occasion by posting a throwback image of himself as a child with a sweet message: “Happy Father’s Day, Pa. W.”

Cundy told GBN America that the rift has never been more evident and Harry’s decision not to acknowledge his father publicly is a travesty.

“I thought it was very poignant that Prince William sent this beautiful post”, she said.

“It shows the bond they still have and the respect he has for his father, and there’s Harry, very noticeably absent.

“Let’s not forget, this is a 75-year-old man suffering with cancer, going on with all his duties, at Trooping the Colour he was stood there in the pouring rain.

“You just think, ‘wow, this man is absolutely incredible’, he is everything Harry isn’t.

“Harry just seems to have lost the plot. And how hurtful indeed not to even send a Father’s Day message. We don’t know if he did it privately.

“Normally, Harry and Meghan are very vocal, but if they can’t post a Father’s Day message, that’s unforgivable.”

GBN America host Nana Akua waded in to express her desire for the Royal Family to “kiss and make up” as the rift continues to deepen.

The issues were laid bare last month when Harry set foot in Britain for the first time in months, but did not mark the occasion by meeting any members of family.

This is despite his father, King Charles, and sister-in-law, Princess Kate, both undergoing treatment for cancer.

Harry travelled to the UK for a brief trip in February to speak to his father upon learning of his cancer diagnosis.

The pair are said to have held a 40-minute conversation before the duke jetted back to California.
