Prince Harry ridiculed for 'bonkers' claim Archie's first words were 'grandma Diana'

Prince Harry has been dubbed "bonkers" by Australian TV host Alan Jones after the Duke of Sussex made a surprising claim about his son's first words. 

Sky News host Alan Jones ridiculed the royal after comments made in Harry's new mental health series, which he co-created with Oprah Winfrey. 

Harry claimed his now two-year-old son began saying "grandma Diana" shortly after learning to say "mama" and "papa". 

"Prince Harry has teamed up with the new hero of woke Oprah Winfrey to produce a TV series called The Me You Can't See," Jones began in his rant against Harry. 

"The series shows the pair opening up about mental health. In the first episode, Harry says 'I feel as though I'm outside of the system but I'm still stuck there'. 

"He then says his son's first words were 'grandma Diana'. First words? Harry, have you gone completely bonkers under the Markle spell?" Jones asked. 

In the Apple TV+ series, Harry tells Oprah: "I got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said - apart from 'mama', 'papa', it was then 'grandma'. 'Grandma Diana'." 

"It's the sweetest thing, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she should be here." 

Previously, Harry told Late Late Show host James Corden that Archie's first word was actually "crocodile", drawing scorn from social media users who felt that three-syllables would have been a bit much for a baby. 

During their now-infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry and Meghan Markle claimed Archie had been telling people to "hydrate" and "drive safe".
