PRINCE Harry’s efforts to break into the world of TV have flopped with Britain’s viewing public.
The former Royal quit The Firm in January 2020 for a new life in America, making TV shows and podcasts with wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
But TV viewers back in the UK don’t think much of his work on the small screen – instead preferring Meghan’s former foe Piers Morgan.
Shock docuseries Harry & Meghan, for Netflix, failed to even make the longlist for this year’s National Television Awards.
But Harry had been in the running for the TV Interview category for his solo sit down with journalist Tom Bradby, entitled Harry: The Interview.
But the one-off, 95-minute special for ITV has today been revealed to have not made the shortlist.

Instead, viewers voted for The Graham Norton Show, Louis Theroux Interviews… and The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show – all three on the BBC – plus Talk TV’s Piers Morgan Uncensored.
Piers has already won a string of gongs for his show, notably for his tell-all with Cristiano Ronaldo that triggered the series of events that saw him leave Manchester United.
It’s the latest blow for Harry and Meghan after Spotify axed their podcast Archetypes.
The couple say they reached a “mutual agreement” to end their company Archewell’s £18m contract with the media giant after one series.
