In the latest round of press activity to promote his memoir Spare, Prince Harry has once again spoken candidly about his experiences within the royal family as part of a sit down interview with trauma expert Dr Gabor Maté.
Yet despite outlining a great deal of loss in his life, particularly how the death of his mother Princess Diana deeply affected him, Harry insisted that he “never looked for sympathy” or considers himself to be a victim. "I definitely don’t see myself as a victim", he said before adding that he wanted to help others by "sharing my story”.
During the paid for ticketed event, which was filmed at Harry and wife Meghan Markle ’s California home, the Prince also went on to share how he was terrified of losing the memory of him mum while taking part in counselling sessions about his childhood trauma.
Harry said: "I thought if I went to therapy that it would cure me and that I would lose whatever I had left, whatever I had managed to hold on to of my mother." He then continued: "I didn't lose that, it was the opposite." "I turned what I thought was supposed to be sadness to try to prove to her that I missed her into realising that she really just wanted me to be happy and that was a huge weight off my chest.” The Duke of Sussex has always been open about his mental health struggles and even admitted he had attended counselling sessions to try and tackle some of the memories that continued to haunt him.Read more on ok.co.uk
