Prince Harry has compared his life growing up as a royal to "a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo", revealing he believes father Prince Charles passed on his own suffering to his children.

Harry who is already a dad to Archie with wife Meghan Markle is expecting a daughter later this summer and said he wanted to "break the cycle" of the "pain and suffering" of his upbringing with his own children.

In yet another bombshell interview, Harry claimed that he had been forced to endure "some form of pain or suffering" because of Prince Charles own experiences growing up.

Speaking on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, he said: "There is no blame. I don't think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I've experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I'm going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don't pass it on, basically.

He went on "It's a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say 'you know what, that happened to me, I'm going to make sure that doesn't happen to you'."

Harry added that he believed that Charles treated him in a certain way as a direct result of how he himself was treated, explaining: "Suddenly I started to piece it together and go 'OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he's treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?'

He also compared living under scrutiny as a member of the royal family to the 1998 film The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey as a man oblivious to the fact that his entire life is a TV show, and to being an animal in a zoo.

And said he believed his father and brother William were "trapped" in the Royal Family.
