Richard Madeley has issued a warning to Prince Harry and says he is at risk of ‘alienating people’ in America.
The GMB host took aim at the Duke of Sussex – who now lives in California alongside his wife Meghan Markle alongside son Archie, two, and newborn daughter Lilibet – after Prince Harry criticising the First Amendment.
Referencing when the father-of-two commented on the First Amendment during an appearance The Armchair Expert podcast in May – where Prince Harry called it “bonkers” – Richard says that the red-head royal is “shooting from the hip a bit too much.”
The former This Morning presenter told the Express.co.uk : “I think, as far as he’s concerned, it was a big faux pas to criticise the First Amendment in the American constitution.
“If you’re going to do that, you have to know what you’re talking about.”
Richard – who has spent a lot of time across the pond – then added that Harry should “watch it” as he could have his American fan base turn against him.

After sharing his opinion that Americans are “generous, and warm, and welcoming, and open, and considerate”, he went on: “But you’ve got to watch it – if you start as an outsider to criticise their ways, they are very very patriotic, much more patriotic, I think, than some people in this country are.”
Criticising Harry, Richard continued: “And you just want to think about what you say, and I just think he’s shooting from the hip a bit too much at the moment.”
It comes after the royal said he did not understand America’s First Amendment in his chat with Dax Shephard.
Discussing the US Constitution, he said: “I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers.
“I don’t want to start going down the First Amendment route because that’s a huge subject and one which I don’t understand because I’ve only been here a short time.
“But, you can find a loophole in anything. You can capitalise or exploit what’s not said rather than uphold what is said.”
The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise.
It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
