On a visit to Roundwood Youth Centre, Prince Harry appeared to question a lack of leadership by Theresa May [Composite: Getty].

Are you convinced by this? It seems very odd that Prince Harry would openly criticise the Conservative Government, contradicting long-standing tradition and endangering the UK’s constitution.

The Royal Family is expected not to interfere in politics – and certainly not to indicate support or opposition to any political party or government.

If they were to do so openly, it could trigger a constitutional crisis.

That being said, it is entirely possible that this has been blown out of proportion.

We only have the charity founder’s word that Prince Harry uttered the words mentioned below. Even if he did, it seems likely they were not intended to be broadcast to the public.

Whether it was a lack of judgement for him to have spoken them at all is therefore difficult to decide; we don’t know that he did.

But it raises this perennial question:

Prince Harry flirted with political controversy yesterday when he criticised a lack of national leadership over the closure of youth clubs and sport centres to help keep children off the streets.

The fifth in line to the throne highlighted a national shortage of places where youngsters can go during half term.

Nary Wijeratne, founder of the charity Sport at the Heart, said: “He said: ‘There’s a lack of strong leadership in this country.'”

Kensington Palace insisted that his remarks were not political but Ms Wijeratne added: “He said that we don’t have a strong Government.”

Harry’s remarks came during a visit to Roundwood Youth Centre in Harlesden, in the the borough of Brent, north west London, to see the work of the Fit and Fed campaign, which aims to keep children active during half term and gives them a free lunch.
