Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher said in an interview with The Sun this week that Prince Harry was a "f---ing woke snowflake" for publicly criticizing the royal family.

Gallagher, who famously has a strained relationship with his brother and former Oasis bandmate Liam Gallagher, also said he sympathized with Prince William over Harry's criticism of the royal family because he knows what it feels like to have a younger brother "shooting his f---ing mouth off."

"Prince William. I feel that f---ing lad's pain," he said. "He's got a f---ing younger brother shooting his f---ing mouth off with s--- that is just so unnecessary. I'd like to think I was always the William."

He continued: "Prince Harry is coming across like a typical f---ing woke snowflake, f---ing a--hole. Just don't be f---ing dissing your family because there's no need for it."

Gallagher specifically criticized Meghan Markle, saying: "This is what happens when you get involved with Americans. As simple as that."

Gallagher said that during a recent press tour for his band High Flying Birds he was inundated with questions about the royals even though he had never met Harry.

"I did a week here of Australian promo down the phone and Zoom and all that and they were like, 'So Noel Gallagher, f---ing 10 years of High Flying Birds! It's been amazing! And f---ing Oasis!'" he said. "'But what we really want to know is, how much of a c--- is Prince Harry?' And I'm just like, 'I don't know mate. I don't know them.''"

This isn't the first time Gallagher has voiced his opinions about the royals. During an interview on the podcast "Funny How? with Matt Morgan" in 2020, he said: "They're quite mad, the royal family. What a terrible f---ing s--- life they must lead. It's just service, what a load of w---."

He continued: "We grow up thinking what a life they lead, living in Buckingham Palace with f---ing boring c---s all day. What a f---ing s--- life. Can't go anywhere, can't do anything. F---ing going to Kenya on holiday."

Piers Morgan, who has been a prominent critic of Harry and Markle, shared a screenshot of Gallagher's interview on Twitter on Thursday and said the musician had "his finger on the pulse of the nation's thoughts."

In a follow-up tweet, Morgan said: "Brilliant interview... thank God there are still stars like @NoelGallagher who speak their mind, don't care who gets 'offended' & never whine about how awful their pampered privileged lives are. More please."
