Noel Gallagher has slammed Prince Harry as a ‘f*****g woke snowflake’ for publicly criticising the royal family.
The Oasis frontman, 54, who has a notoriously sour relationship with his brother Liam, 48, said he sympathises with Prince William for having a brother who is ‘shooting his f*****g mouth off’.
Noel didn’t hold back in his criticism of the Duke of Sussex, telling The Sun: ‘Prince William. I feel that f***ing lad’s pain.

‘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.’
The rocker criticised Harry for ‘dissing your family’ and told him to ‘shut up’.
Noel has recently been doing promo for his solo project High Flying Birds and has found many interviewers want to know his thoughts on the Duke.
While admitting he doesn’t know Harry, Noel added: ‘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.’

Noel also made a dig at Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, saying this is what happens when you ‘get involved’ with Americans.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for comment.
Noel’s words come after plans for a new Oasis compilation album and accompanying bonus disc of unreleased material have ‘been scrapped’ after feuding Noel and Liam failed to agree on the project’s direction.
The album was expected to follow the 2020 release of Don’t Stop…, a previously unheard acoustic demo recorded by Noel in the mid-2000s.
Noel claimed that he would end up ‘knifing’ his brothers if he ever had to write a song in the studio with them.

The guitarist, who also has an older brother called Paul, insisted during an appearance on Worldwide FM at the end of May that he couldn’t think of anything worse than creating a song with him.
He previously made seven studio albums with the band, before one final fight ended Oasis in 2009.
Noel said: ‘It’s a gift to co-write … I’d kill my f****ing two brothers if I had to write a song with them, I’d f***ing knife the pair of them.’
It comes after Prince Harry has threatened the BBC with legal action after it reported that he and Meghan did not ask the Queen for permission to name their daughter Lilibet – as an extraordinary three-way briefing war broke out between the Sussexes, the Palace and the corporation.
Senior Buckingham Palace sources told BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond that the Queen was ‘never asked’ her opinion on the couple’s decision to name their new baby, who was born on June 4, after her childhood nickname.

However, Harry hit back within 90 minutes of the BBC’s report being published through a statement from his and Meghan’s close friend Omid Scobie that insisted the Queen was the first person the Duke called after the birth of his daughter.
Mr Scobie, who wrote the bombshell Finding Freedom biography of the couple, also claimed the Sussexes would not have used the name Lilibet unless the Queen had supported the move.
Harry, who together with Meghan announced they were expecting a girl during their interview with Oprah in March, took things a step further mere hours after his rebuttal of the report, threatening the BBC with legal action through law firm Schillings.
Notice of the legal action was followed by a carefully-worded statement that raised more questions than answers over whether the Queen did give permission or if the couple simply informed her of their intentions in a fait accompli.
The statement insisted that the BBC report was wholly wrong and read: ‘The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement, in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called.

‘During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honour. Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name.’
The BBC then amended its report though the article still says that the Queen was not asked about the name of the baby. Mr Dymond’s tweets citing a Buckingham Palace source also still remain up.
The BBC report on the Palace’s position and Harry’s fiery reaction implies both parties believe they are telling the truth on the issue. It suggests that Harry and Meghan could have informed the Queen of Lilibet’s name before taking Her Majesty’s non-denial as consent.
On the other hand, the Palace briefings appear to hint that the Queen felt she was presented with the couple’s decision and asked to rubber stamp it, rather than give permission.
The explosive row is the latest chapter of Harry’s ongoing feud with the broadcaster after he attacked the BBC following the inquiry into Martin Bashir’s interview with his mother Princess Diana. Harry blasted the 1995 BBC Panorama interview and said his mother ‘lost her life because of this’.

Despite Harry’s strong condemnation of the BBC report about Lilibet, Buckingham Palace refused to comment on whether the story was true when approached by MailOnline.
Harry spoke about his relationship with his family in his and Meghan’s CBS special with Oprah as well on his and Oprah’s mental health documentary series The Me You Can’t See.

Harry criticised his family, accusing them of ‘total neglect’ when Meghan was feeling suicidal amid harassment on social media.
And he laid bare his battles with panic attacks and severe anxiety, saying ‘so 28 to probably 32 was a nightmare time in my life’.
Asked by Oprah if he had any regrets, Harry also said he wished that he had taken a stronger stance on ‘the racism’ aimed at Meghan early in their relationship.

Harry claimed that it was only him and their unborn child that kept Meghan going, after she told him about her suicidal thoughts and the practicalities of how she was going to end her life.
He said: ‘The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby.’
He said he was ‘somewhat ashamed’ of the way he dealt with it, suggesting that rather than prioritising their official duties they should have pulled out. But at the time, Harry said, that was not an option, because of ‘the system’.
Harry said that after marrying Meghan his attempts to get help from his family, following online trolling which was pushing her to the brink, were ignored.
He said: ‘Every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, to stop just got met with total silence or total neglect.’
Harry added: ‘We spent four years trying to make it work. We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job.’

He said he did not go to his family when Meghan felt suicidal because he was ashamed the situation had got ‘that bad’ and also suspected the royals would not have been able to help.
The duke said: ‘That was one of the biggest reasons to leave, feeling trapped and feeling controlled through fear, both by the media and by the system itself which never encouraged the talking about this kind of trauma. Certainly now I will never be bullied into silence.’
Harry was also shown taking part in an eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy session with a trained professional.
He said: ‘Therapy has equipped me to be able to take on anything – that’s why I’m here now, that’s why my wife is here now.’
In the CBS special, the Sussexes first accused the royal family of not supporting them, claimed royal aides declined to help Meghan when she was troubled with suicidal thoughts and said a relative had made a racist comment about their son’s skin colour.
Hours before the new show aired, Harry joined his brother the Duke of Cambridge in criticising the BBC following an inquiry which found the broadcaster covered up ‘deceitful behaviour’ used by journalist Martin Bashir to secure his headline-making 1995 interview with their mother.
The series comes after Harry appeared to suggest his father and grandparents, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, had all failed as parents during a podcast interview broadcast earlier in May.
Harry added: ‘We spent four years trying to make it work. We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job’
