A publicity-shy Prince Harry 'lazy bum' has been blasted for moaning he suffers 'burn out’ from hard days’ of graft.
The former squaddie, who quit the monarchy for a new private life in an £11 million California mansion, claimed he was guilty of burning the candle at both ends until he discovered meditation in a woke chat with mental health firm BetterUp.
The Duke of Sussex ordered all businesses to give everyone time off to 'focus on themselves’.
The 37-year-old appeared on a virtual panel alongside his equally shy 40-year-old former actress Meghan, their tennis star pal Serena Williams and BetterUp chief executive officer Alexi Robichaux.
Meghan Markle and Harry's appearance came a month after we revealed they had made just one podcast after signing an £18m deal with Spotify in 2020 – meaning the couple’s verbal ramblings had netted them £500,000-a-minute.
The ginger-haired dad-of-two was able to take five months off when his daughter was born last year.
But he moaned he struggled to find time for himself as a father, husband and someone starting a business and had hard days.
Harry wants bosses to allocate 15-minute white space breaks every day for staff to relax.
"I too experience burn-out,’’ he said. "I'm burning the candle at both ends and that's like, boom. Some days are great, some days are really hard. I'm always kicking myself, If you'd have done this, which you know works for you, you wouldn't be in this state now."

"I know I need to meditate every single day. Everyone has such busy days. If you have 15 minutes of white space…I allot half an hour or 45 minutes in the morning when one kid has gone to school and the other is having a nap."
"There's a break in our program. It's like, right, it's either a workout, take the dog for a walk, get out in nature, maybe meditate. I hope everybody is available to do that but once you have to show up for other people, the self-care is the first thing to drop away.
"As someone starting up a business, as a husband, as a dad, you just don't have the time to do that. From an employer perspective, you can't expect your people to put in the work on themselves when you're not giving them the time to do that.’’
But his advice fell flat on social media. One Twitter user reacted: "Eh! What the hell is he talking about? He's never done a hard day's work in his life.’’
Another said it was always 'me-me time' with the ex-Royal, adding: "Real people have to work for a living.’’ One more said: "A lazy bum unable to do any real work tells us what and how things really are in this world. How boring it is. Go away.’’
"Sorry, just don't take him seriously anymore,’’ tweeted another viewer.
Another said he "doesn’t actually know what the word work means," adding the video was a "sick joke".
One more wrote: "It's really difficult to take mental health advice from a 40-year-old who in the middle of a pandemic was complaining on Oprah that he only had his mom's millions to rely on because dad cut him off. This is all during people losing their livelihoods,’’ said another tweet.
Another viewer wrote: "When he has punched a clock with no flexible work schedule, sat in the same grey office day in and day out pushing papers, so the execs get more money for 25 years, then he'd be worthy of my attention. Until then you giving him millions for this is insulting.’’
