Many fans might be wondering how to watch Harry: The Interview as Prince Harry shared his heartbreaking desire to get his father and brother “back”.

Ahead of the publication of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, on January 10 the King’s youngest son has given two high profile interviews. Both are set to air on the same day on different sides of the pond as Prince Harry opened up to Anderson Cooper on CBS’s 60 Minutes and ITV News at Ten anchor Tom Bradby for Harry: The Interview. 

It’s thought Prince Harry’s interview with Tom could bring back painful memories as it’s not the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have got candid with the journalist. A trailer for the ITV interview has now been shared and Prince Harry got candid with Tom about how things “never needed to be this way”. 

Here we reveal what other subjects viewers can expect and how to watch Harry: The Interview where you are…

What do we know about Harry: The Interview so far?

Whilst there are likely to be plenty more shocking and heart-breaking revelations in store than we’ve already been given a hint at, the Harry: The Interview trailer was certainly enlightening. It showed royal fans that they can expect the Duke of Sussex, who is fifth in the royal line of succession, to open up about his relationship with both his brother Prince William and father King Charles. 

For years now rumors of a “rift” have persisted and the trailer didn’t see Prince Harry dispel them as he claimed his family haven’t shown a desire to “reconcile”.

From the outset, his sadness at the way things have gone was clear and he shared a desire to be part of a “family” rather than an institution.

“It never needed to be this way,” Prince Harry told ITV News At Ten anchor Tom Bradby in the opening few seconds of the dramatic teaser trailer. “The leaking and the planting. I want a family, not an institution.”

Elsewhere in the trailer he expressed his belief that the Royal Family “feel as though it’s better to keep us, somehow, as the villains”, before claiming they’ve “shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile”.

It was then that Prince Harry shared his desire to grow close to King Charles and Prince William once again as he said, “I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”

Although not featured in the teaser, according to the BBC, ITV has said that there would also be “never-before-heard details” surrounding the death of Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana and that it would also cover his personal relationships.
