Prince Harry talks royal family ahead of book launch

STORY: "I don't think that we can ever have peace with my family unless the truth is out there. There's a lot that I can forgive, but there needs to be conversations in order for reconciliation. And part of that has to be accountability," said Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, during an interview with U.S. broadcaster ABC News.

At the heart of Harry and Meghan's narrative is that Britain's sensationalist popular press is a "devil" that members of the royal family have colluded with to protect or enhance their own reputations.

"There has always been this competition between us, weirdly," he said. "Again I think it really plays into or is played by the 'heir/spare' and the British press's part in that. Right. They pitched the Wales right, of which Kate and William are now, against the Sussexes, me and my wife. They always pitched us against each other. They pitched Kate and Meghan against each other."
