Prince Harry talks about how he used to speak with Prince Charles for “hours” as his father called him “darling boy” in an unearthed Radio4 clip from four years ago.

The Duke of Sussex appeared to have a close and loving bond with the man he called his 'pa' when he interviewed Prince Charles during a stint as guest editor on Radio4’s Today show in 2017.

The loving tone was easy to hear as the two spoke about climate change during the chat.

Prince Charles said: “The future lies in working in far greater harmony with nature and trying to make sure our own economy mimic’s nature’s economy.”

Harry responded: "We could talk about this for hours and hours, which we always do, but not with a microphone in front of us. I totally see it and I totally understand it because of all these years and conversations we've been having. I do end up picking your brains more now that I ever have done.”

His father responded: “Well, darling boy, it makes me very proud to think that you understand.”

Harry quipped back: “And that I’m listening.”

At the time of the chat Harry was already dating Meghan, who would go on to ask Charles to walk her down the aisle the following year at their wedding.

But this loving relationship has seemingly soured recently after Harry spoke about “genetic pain” on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

He said: “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.”

The Prince continued to say: “As parents we should be doing the most that we can to say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m gonna make sure that’s not going to happen to you’.”

The remarks follow Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey on ITV earlier in the year, where they accused the royal family of racism.

Harry has also been open about his own mental health and will reportedly premiere a mental health show, The Me You Can't See, with Oprah Winfrey later this month.
