• Some Twitter users did not like Prince Harry's comments about Prince Charles' parenting skills in a recent podcast interview
  • They defended Prince Charles, saying they believe he did his best to be a good father to William and Harry
  • Others sided with the Duke of Sussex, pointing out that Prince Charles once said his own parents were "distant"

Prince Charles received support on social media after Prince Harry questioned the royal family's approach to raising children.

When he appeared on Dax Shepard's "Armchair Expert" podcast Thursday, the Duke of Sussex said Prince Charles passed on a "cycle" of "genetic pain and suffering" to him, which he and wife Meghan Markle moved to the U.S. to break. He also said he is raising his son Archie differently from how he and his brother Prince William were brought up by their father.

Some Twitter users did not approve of Prince Harry's alleged dig at Prince Charles and expressed their support for the Prince of Wales. This came after Prince Charles ignored a question about his relationship with his youngest son in an engagement following the latter's podcast interview.

"Prince Charles was and is a good father and don't deserve to be trashed by anyone, specially his youngest son! He, with his family's help, raised his kids. And this is the payment he receives from that man child? So glad he's his first born (and his family) close to him," one person tweeted, sharing photos of Prince Charles and Prince William.

"I have always like Prince Charles and believe him to be a good and kind man. He walked Harry's wife down the aisle for heaven's sake! Now he's been given the same treatment as her father. I wish he'd defend himself and his family. This is shocking," another user wrote.

"In recent years #PrinceCharles got much closer to his father and was able to cope more with how he was brought up. #HARRY could learn from that but he's too self-absorbed and influenced at present. By someone estranged from her own dad," British journalist Phil Dampier tweeted.

However, others sided with Prince Harry. According to them, his revelations were nothing new because the Prince of Wales also described Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip as "distant" in a biography.

"Prince Charles is lauded for calling his mother unemotional, unavailable & his father unkind but God forbid Harry saying he has unresolved childhood issues - the Brit Media goes absolutely crazy! It’s very obvious the UK media is on an obsessive hate campaign against the couple," one commented on Omid Scobie's post mentioning Prince Charles' authorized biography by journalist Jonathan Dimbleby.

"Prince Charles failed as a husband and a father. His affair with his horse face mistress made his wife’s life miserable and later on married her without thinking how it will affect his sons. Kudos to Harry for not following in his steps. Welcome to the USA," another user added.

"I am British and I disagree. People are sucking up negative UK press narratives instead of listening to what's actually being said by Prince Harry. For starters, Prince Charles took aim at his own mother and father for his upbringing in 1994," a third netizen wrote.

In his "Armchair Expert" interview, Prince Harry said he believes his father inadvertently raised him the way he was raised but that he would not do the same with his own children with Markle.

"He's treated me the way that he was treated," Prince Harry said of Prince Charles. "There's a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. We as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, 'You know what? That happened to me. I'm going to make sure that doesn't happen to you.'"

Prince Harry went on to detail how as he grew older, he started to see the similarities between his life and that of Prince Charles.

"I never saw it. I never knew about it. And then suddenly I started to piece it all together and go, 'Okay, so this is where he went to school. This is what happened. I know this bit about his life. I also know that's connected to his parents. So that means that he's treated me the way that he was treated, which means how can I change that for my own kids?'" Prince Harry shared.

He continued, "And, well, here I am. I've now moved my whole family to the U.S. but that wasn't the plan. But sometimes you've got to make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first."
