American media reacts to Harry's 'lurid and absurd' public score-settling trends now

American media has reacted to Prince Harry and his duo of televised interviews that aired on Sunday ahead of the release of his tell-all memoir Spare.

The Duke of Sussex spoke to Anderson Cooper in a prime-time interview on CBS' 60-minutes in the United States, and appeared on Britain's ITV in an interview with Tom Bradby - two of four television interviews about his controversial autobiography.

In explosive revelations to Cooper on CBS, Harry said he is 'not texting' his brother and described Queen Consort Camilla as 'the villain', and told ITV's Bradby he was speaking out in his memoir because 'silence only allows the abuser to abuse'.

As the impact of the incendiary interviews continued to sink in on both sides of the pond, they were covered across the whole US media spectrum, with Bloomberg noting that Harry reserved 'real venom' for his brother William, while the prince 'skillfully directed and produced his own melodrama'.

In an opinion piece for Bloomberg, Martin Ivens compares Harry and William's feud to other famous warring siblings - both fictional and non-fictional - and particularly  those born from the resentment that comes from a first-born's right to succeed.

Ivens points to 'Jacob who outwits a slow-witted, elder brother Esau to win his father's inheritance', the Roy siblings in the HBO drama Succession, and the Miliband brothers in the UK who vied for leadership of the Labour party - with the younger of the pair, Ed Miliband, going on to win the position in 2010.

Now, Ivens writes for Bloomberg, Prince Harry is getting 'his revenge' by publishing Spare for being made to feel second best by Buckingham Palace - casting doubt on Harry's insistence he is not trying to hurt his family.

'Prince Harry has skillfully directed and produced his own melodrama,' Ivens says.

'Lacerating detail of his quarrels with William, Prince of Wales, will guarantee the warring brothers a place in history,' he adds, saying the story resonates with people around the world. The difference, he notes, is that most disgruntled siblings don't get the chance to air their grievances to Oprah Winfrey.

Ivens notes that during his interviews, Harry reserves the 'real venom' for his brother, 'whom he accuses of 'parroting' the Fleet Street newspaper line about Meghan's alleged high-handed ways', the piece says.

While fights between boys are 'commonplace,' the columnist writes, 'for two adults to row about whether Harry's beard should be shaved off for his wedding day seems absurd, if not pathetic.'

But despite all of Harry's complaints about the Royal Family, Ivens says that the Prince seems reluctant to fully sever his ties. 'But if it is as rotten to the core as he suggests, why does he still hang on to his title?' Ivens asks.

'Possibly, Harry just likes being royal because he is used to it and it suits him and his wife. There is the paradox of the tale: The man who has rocked the monarchy by storming out of it, somehow can't let the old firm go,' he speculates. All that being said, Bloomberg notes, Harry's revelations are 'going to sell a lot of books'.

The Washington Post said in its article on the interviews that Harry has launched 'a full broadside' against Buckingham Palace with his latest media appearances, focusing in particular on his comments about his stepmother Camilla

Harry's book Spare has sparked a furor over his claims that William physically attacked him, while his admission he killed 25 Taliban members during the Afghanistan war generated protests in Helmand province.

In shock remarks, Harry denied he accused the royal family of racism in his Oprah interview, when wife Meghan Markle revealed an unnamed family member raised concerns about how dark their unborn son's skin would be.
