PRINCE Harry trawls online news sites to read negative comments about himself, it has been claimed today.
The Duke of Sussex would even "voraciously devour" stories about his love life from supermarket magazines.
The insight into how keenly the 35-year-old royal would follow coverage of his own life comes after he and wife Meghan Markle announced they were stepping down as royals and moving to Canada.
The Daily Mail's royal reporter Rebecca English today claimed Prince Harry had struggled in the attention his royal role came with.
She wrote: "All too often he would grill me about what I, or another member of the media, had written about him.
"His honesty was welcome and refreshing, interlaced with snippets of intelligence about his family, girlfriends, love for the military — and everything in between. But he would also talk about the supermarket magazines he picked up, voraciously devouring every article about his love life, riddled as they were with falsehoods.
"In recent years he had even taken to scouring online articles and the comments underneath."
Today, royal experts said Harry looked like a "weight" had been lifted off his shoulders as he appeared at Buckingham Palace for what could potentially have been his final public duty as a senior royal.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, The Sun's royal correspondent Emily Andrews said Prince Harry was on "good form" yesterday as he appeared at the Rugby League World Cup draw.
She said: "Certainly over the last 18 months or two years, we've seen him really grumpy, sad, and bad-tempered."
But she said the dad, who is expected to head to Canada in the next few days to be with his wife and eight-month-old son Archie, looked relieved yesterday.
The couple will now go through a "period of transition" that will see them "create a new life as a young family" and spend time in both Canada and the UK.
The Queen said she was “entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family”.
But it's widely know that Her Majesty has been left devastated by her grandson and his wife's decision to step away.
The Duchess of Sussex is also currently embroiled in a legal battle with a national newspaper – suing the Mail on Sunday for damages after it published a leaked letter she wrote to Thomas three months after her May 2018 wedding.
Meghan claims it was misuse of her private information and breach of copyright but documents filed by the paper argued she was behind a smear campaign against her estranged father, who currently lives in Mexico.
The defence papers filed at the High Court state the newspaper will seek disclosure from Meghan of her exchanges with her friend Jessica Mulroney.
