PRINCE Harry has been slammed for giving "self-pitying" interviews, with a royal expert claiming he is "out for vengeance".
Camilla Tominey called the Duke "smug" and "spiteful" after his recent explosive comments have left the royal family reeling.

She warned the royal, 36, was "continuing to stoke the flames of publicity" and has "learned nothing from his mother's experience".
Adding: "For in trying to emulate her doe-eyed confessionals to speak his 'truth', he is repeating her mistake of squandering popularity for the sake of evening the score."
Speaking to The Telegraph she added it was clear Harry wants to promote awareness of mental health and help others, but was also airing "dirty linen" on TV.
The royal editor said it is in stark contrast to Prince William and his silence on the matter.
She said of Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle: "Their bid to seek 'financial independence' in California has cast them completely in the shade in the minds of the majority of Brits, many of whom would prefer it if they disappeared from view altogether.
"The more they have accused the 'racist' royal family of 'total neglect', the more they have succeeded in encouraging the British public to throw their support behind the institution."
It comes after he volunteered to have a trauma therapy session filmed for the Oprah Winfrey docuseries after unleashing "truth bombs" about the Royal Family.
Prince Harry accused his family of showing "total neglect" to his mental health woes and claimed that Prince Charles made him "suffer".
'ROCK THE BOAT'
Earlier this month a royal author claimed Harry "wanted to rock the boat" with the Oprah interview.
Ingrid Seward said the Duke of Sussex "knew what he was doing" when he and Meghan Markle did the televised tell-all chat, but he "doesn't regret it for one minute".
During the conversation with Oprah, the couple made a series of shocking allegations – most damagingly of all that an unnamed member of the Royal Family had made a racist comment about the colour of son Archie's skin.
The Duchess also said she was prevented from seeking mental health support when she was in crisis.
She even said she felt suicidal while pregnant with Archie.
Harry said his relationship with his brother was “space” and claimed his family were “trapped” by their royal duties.
And he said his father Charles stopped taking his calls after Megxit and he was financially cut off by the Royal Family last year.
Oprah then defended Prince Harry and Meghan against critics and said no one wants their lives "invaded."
In an interview with Today, Oprah stood up for the couple, saying "privacy doesn't mean silence."
Harry has received criticism for doing interviews regarding the issue, as he had previously asked for privacy.
"I ask for privacy and I'm talking all the time," Oprah said when asked what critics do not understand in Harry's requests.
