In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Royal continues to talk about his mother's funeral on September 6, 1997. At that time, the young prince was only 12 years old. "I just ran along and did what was expected of me". Today the 36-year-old expresses his feelings about his mother's death: "I was so angry about what happened to [Diana] and the fact that there was no justice for her death. Nothing has changed. The same people who rushed her into this tunnel then photographed her dying in the back seat of the car ".

Prince Harry: He's doing therapy

After the death of his mother, the young prince could not expect any help from the British royal family, says Harry today: "Family members advised me to just play the game, life would be easier that way. But I have a lot of my mother in me. I felt myself as if I were outside the system and trapped in it at the same time. The only way I could break out of it was to break out and tell the truth. "

For four years, Prince Harry has been making use of therapeutic help, as he reveals in the documentary series "The Me You Can't See". Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, the Royal draws parallels between his past and present with regard to his relationship with Duchess Meghan. The Duke of Sussex also speaks about Meghan's suicidal thoughts. Just like the Duchess in a joint interview with Oprah Winfrey at the beginning of May, Harry also explicitly refers to the evening of a charity event in London in January 2019 when he remembers his wife's difficult situation: "She was absolutely sane, but her thoughts have her thoughts eating them up some nights. What made her get through this situation was thinking of me and what happened to me in the past. She didn't want to put me in the position of losing another woman in my life ".

Prince Harry: "They won't stop until [Meghan] is dead"

Today the royal is ashamed of the way he treated his suicidal wife at the time, but also blames the British royal family for the difficult situation: "Due to the system in which we lived and the responsibilities and duties associated with it, we were able to find ourselves in this situation just hugged briefly and then had to go with a police escort to the Royal Albert Hall to face a wall of photographers and pretend everything was okay ".

In moments like these, the royal realized that history seemed to repeat itself. Just like his mother Diana, he and Duchess Meghan were besieged by the paparazzi: "We were followed, photographed, hunted, molested". In addition to the huge media interest in Harry and Meghan, the Royal draws another parallel between his life and that of his mother Diana: "My mother was hunted to death because she was in a relationship with someone who didn't know and see what happens They talk about history repeating itself, I'm sure they won't stop until [Meghan] is dead ”. After her separation from Prince Charles, Diana was in a relationship with the Egyptian entrepreneur Dodi Al-Fayed. In the interview with Oprah Winfrey, Duke Meghan accused unnamed members of the British royal family of racism.

In order to get out of this vicious circle, Harry and Meghan decided in 2020 to emigrate to the United States of America and to resign from their royal duties - also for the sake of their son: "When you have suffered, you try everything possible to avoid these negative experiences you made not to pass it on to your children. [Meghan and I] made a decision to put our mental health first. We do and we will do it in the future. Isn't that what it's about? Isn't it about avoiding history repeating itself? Not passing on all the pain you've experienced? " The couple are expecting offspring this summer, son Archie, 2, will have a sister.
