Prince Harry Has Been Keeping One Of His Toughest Challenges Hidden From The Public

Royalty doesn't always equal happiness — just ask Prince Harry. Ever since he and Meghan Markle stepped down from their official positions, Harry has opened up more than ever before about what his childhood was really like. And in a rare vulnerable moment on his new TV show, Harry spoke more candidly than ever before. He revealed heartbreaking details about his mother's funeral and the years of turmoil that followed. Not even Meghan knew just how miserable Harry was.

Out of body experience

"The thing I remember the most was the sound of the horse's hooves going along the Mall, the red brick road. By this point, both of us were in shock. It was like I was outside of my body." For Prince Harry, opening up about such a traumatic moment in his and William's lives took courage — courage that, at one time, felt impossible.

Harry’s mental health

Prince Harry spoke publicly about how he really felt the day of Princess Diana's funeral on his and Oprah Winfrey’s AppleTV+ show, The Me You Can't See. It was a rarely vulnerable interview from the prince, and according to him, his own trauma actually began long before his mother's death.

Nosey nuisance

Though Harry and Meghan are their prime suspects nowadays, nosey journalists were once obsessed with writing about Diana. Their intrusiveness created enormous stress for the princess, something Harry remembers from his childhood. "… Unfortunately, when I think about my mum the first thing that comes to mind is always the same one, over and over again," Harry said.

Harassed by the press

"Strapped in the car, seatbelt across. My brother in the car as well, and my mother driving and being chased by three, four, five mopeds with paparazzi on,” Harry said. “She was almost unable to drive because of the tears, there was no protection.” Diana was continually hounded.
