Prince Albert, the son of late Hollywood icon Grace Kelly, understands Prince Harry’s woes all too well.
The prince of Monaco told People magazine on Tuesday he was aware of the British royal’s tell-all documentary where he candidly expressed his frustrations with the intense media scrutiny surrounding his growing family with former American actress-turned-Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
“I completely understand his reasons,” said the 61-year-old.
