Prince Harry may have shown a "hint of regret" in his TV interview with James Corden, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex joined James Corden on an open-top bus driving through Los Angeles for an exclusive interview on the Brit's Late Late Show.

The 17 minutes of informal chatting and jokes was the most Harry had spoken in public since he and wife Meghan Markle stepped back as senior royals for a new life stateside.

Soon to be mum-of-two, Meghan's 90-minute interview with Oprah will be broadcast next Sunday on March 7.

However, she appeared only via Facetime as Corden was keen to have her chip into the conversation.

But according to royal expert Camilla Tominey in the Daily Telegraph, for all his relaxed and laid back charm, Harry perhaps indicated an ounce of regret over Megxit.

She said: "The timing will also have struck some as a little off, coinciding with the 94-year-old monarch making a historic intervention in the coronavirus vaccination drive, while her 99-year-old husband remains in King Edward VII hospital.

"Part joker, part deep-thinker, and undoubtedly a sensitive soul, Harry has always been a complex character, which is what has endeared him to the public over the years.

"He became one of the most popular members of the Royal Family precisely because he used to take the work seriously but not himself.

"While we were treated to a shimmer of that familiar sparkle on Thursday, the man on the Clapham omnibus [an ordinary person] could have been forgiven for sensing the slightest hint of regret."

The author also suggested that the couple's attempt to only be praised and applauded in US media circles – in contrast to the UK – runs the risk of getting "above their station".

Because for all the power of their well-oiled PR machine, there will always be "two sides to every story."

The expert added: "By only seeking favourable coverage, while their Royal relatives take the rough with the smooth, the Sussexes risk accusations of having ideas above their station, exemplified by the rather negative reaction to their recent suggestion that “service is universal”.

Detailing the royal couple's interview with Oprah, CBS said she will speak with Meghan in “a wide-ranging interview covering everything from stepping into life as a royal, marriage, motherhood (and) philanthropic work, to how she is handling life under intense public pressure”.

The pair will later be joined “by Prince Harry as they speak about their move to the United States and their future hopes and dreams for their expanding family”.
