Oasis legend Noel Gallagher has launched a ferocious tirade at Prince Harry, branding him a “f***ing woke snowflake” for publicly condemning the Royal Family.
In remarks published by The Sun newspaper, the Britpop icon lashed out at the Duke of Sussex for “dissing his family”, comments which come without a hint of irony given his famous long-running feud with brother and former Oasis bandmate Liam.
“Prince William. I feel that f***ing lad’s pain,” Noel told the newspaper, claiming to empathise with the Duke of Cambridge’s situation in having a troubled sibling.
“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.”
It’s no coincidence that Noel’s remarks follow the release of his new record with High Flying Birds, but the frontman tells reporters he was surprised at how intrigued the rest of the Anglosphere were with the former royals.
“It’s funny how they obsess about it around the world. 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 ten years of High Flying Birds! It’s been amazing! And f***ing Oasis! 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’.
“But 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,” he added.
Not wishing to leave out the Duchess of Sussex, Noel had a few words about Meghan also.
“This is what happens when you get involved with Americans. As simple as that,” he quipped.
It’s not the first time the former Oasis songwriter has made controversial remarks. He famously slammed pro-Remain politicians back in 2019 for trying to frustrate the Brexit process.
“There’s only one fucking thing worse that a fool who voted for Brexit. That’s the rise of the c**** trying to get the vote overturned,” he told the Manchester Evening News.
“You take part in a democratic f***ing process – if you don’t like the outcome, go to North Korea…I sat the day of Brexit and thought: ‘I can’t be arsed going to the polling station, who the f**k would vote to leave Europe? It’s a nonsensical f***ing idea’. And you wake up the next day and think: ‘F***ing hell, s**t.’
“But the thing that is taking place after that is frankly a disgrace. It’s a disgrace when you see people trying to get that vote overturned. Because that’s fascism. Straight up. Pure and simple. Flying in the face of democracy, no matter what, because you don’t like what f***ing happened.”
