Mr Ray said: “Harry in particular was such a young lad when his mother passed away.

“We all remember those images where he had to walk behind the casket in front of the whole nation.

“Over the years he’s talked about his mental health issues. He’s going through a really tough time at the moment seeing how the press is treating his wife. He’s almost reliving that.

“To get a feeling that people may well be looking at his life, his mother’s life, in the form of a musical, could be really difficult for him to take.”
