The man who wrote “Don’t Look Back in Anger” has been famously bad about, well, doing exactly that, especially when it comes to the longstanding feud with his brother and former bandmate Liam. It makes sense, then, that he can relate to having to share the spotlight in the U.K. with a sibling you don’t always see eye-to-eye with; perhaps that’s why, in a new interview with The Sun, the Oasis guitarist weighed in on the dispute between Prince Harry and Prince William.

“Prince William. I feel that fucking lad’s pain,” Gallagher told the publication. “He’s got a fucking younger brother shooting his fucking mouth off with shit that is just so unnecessary. I’d like to think I was always the William.”

He also offered his opinion on Harry and Meghan’s recent interview with Oprah and other public comments about the Royal Family, adding, “Prince Harry is coming across like a typical fucking woke snowflake, fucking asshole. Just don’t be fucking dissing your family because there’s no need for it.”

Of course, Gallagher himself is no stranger to dissing one’s family. But it seems as though he blames Meghan Markle for meddling and encouraging Harry to speak out. “This is what happens when you get involved with Americans,” he said. “As simple as that.”

The Brit also expressed distaste over how frequently he’s been asked about the Royal Family drama while doing press for his new High Flying Birds album.

“It’s funny though, doing promo for this, it’s funny how they obsess about it around the world,” he said. “I did a week here of Australian promo down the phone and Zoom and all that and they were like, ‘So Noel Gallagher, fucking ten years of High Flying Birds! It’s been amazing! And fucking Oasis! But what we really want to know is, how much of a c–t is Prince Harry? And I’m just like, ‘I don’t know mate. I don’t know them.’”

So there you have it! We can all stop wondering what Noel Gallagher thinks about Prince Harry and rest assured that he fancies himself the “William” of Oasis.
