Prince Harry opened up to his fans in the new Apple TV + series dedicated to mental health, The Me You Can’t See. He confides the difficulties he had encountered in the face of public mourning following the death of his mother, Princess Diana. The Duke of Sussex says it was difficult for him to come to terms with his mother’s tragic death. One of the reasons being the public grief he witnessed. Prince Harry says he was affected by the extent of Diana’s fans’ grief. He felt like the Princess of Wales fans knew her better than he did. He also felt like the whole world was crying more than he could.
The bonus episode of the Apple TV + series also shows an interview between Prince Harry and Zak Williams, the son of Robin Williams. Alongside Oprah Winfrey, they discuss their similar experiences. Recall that Prince Harry lost his mother in 1997 in a car accident while Zak lost his father in 2014 to suicide.
“A heart-to-heart discussion with his fans”
During the interview, Harry told Zak: “We have a lot of common experiences – when you see so many people all over the world mourning someone, they feel like they knew better than you.” “How can you cry more for someone who is my parent than I am unable to cry on my own?” Harry continued.
Earlier in the series, Harry also opened up about his addiction to pills and alcohol. A problem that still results from the loss of his mother, Princess Diana. According to him, it was his wife Meghan Markle who had encouraged him to seek help in order to face these problems.
