Prince Harry has suggested that his mother’s death was why he “didn’t want the life” of a royal. The Duke of Sussex spoke candidly about losing Princess Diana at a young age, and why he was “so angry”. The former working royal’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was broadcast as part of their mental health documentary, ‘The Me You Can’t See’.

In the series, Harry said: “When my mum was taken away from me at the age of 12 just before my 13th birthday, I didn’t want the life.

“Sharing the grief of my mother’s death with the world, for me the thing I remember the most is the sound of the horse’s hooves going along the mall. The red brick road.

“By this time both of us were in shock. It was like I was outside of my body and walking along just doing what was expected of me. Showing one-tenth of the emotion everyone else was showing.

“I was like, ‘This is my mum you never even met her’.”

Oprah added: “As you were speaking, I was thinking, those of who knew your mother and loved her from afar, probably did more processing of her passing than you did.”

The Duke agreed: “Without question. I was so angry about what happened to her and the fact that there was no justice, at all. Nothing came from that.

“The same people that chased her into the tunnel photographed her dying on the backseat of the car.

“I don’t want to think about her because if I think about her, it’s going to bring up the fact that I can’t bring her back.”

He continued: “It’s just going to make me sad, what’s the point of thinking about something sad.

“What’s the point of thinking about someone you’ve lost and are never going to get back again. And, I just decided not to talk about it.”

When Oprah asked if “anybody talking [was] about it”, Harry admitted, “no one was”.

It “features illuminating stories from across the globe, giving us the opportunity to seek truth, understanding, and a newfound hope for the future”.

The project is streaming on Apple TV+.

It also features some high-profile guests, including singer Lady Gaga and Academy Award-nominated actress Glenn Close.
