Prince Harry slams Charles for making him ‘suffer’ as child after Diana’s death


On his new Apple TV documentary series The Me You Can’t See, Prince Harry opened up in yet another bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

Prince Harry criticized his father, Prince Charles, for making him “suffer” as a child, and claimed that his family tried to prevent him and Meghan Markle from leaving, even though his wife was suicidal.

Harry discussed his relationship with his father in episode 3 of the series, Finding What Works.

In it, Harry claims that his family did not discuss about his mother’s death, Princess Diana, and that they expected him to deal with the ensuing media attention and mental torment on his own.

He said that his family urged him to “play the game” and that things will get better.

“My father used to say to me when I was younger … ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you,’” the 36-year-old prince told Oprah Winfrey.


“That doesn’t make sense — just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had, you can make it right for your kids,” he added.

“We chose to put our mental health first,” Harry said of him and Meghan’s decision to leave. “That’s what we’re doing and that’s what we’ll continue to do.

“Isn’t this all about breaking the cycle?’ he asked rhetorically. “Isn’t this all about making sure that history doesn’t repeat itself?”

Harry compared the royal family to a cage, expressing his feelings of being “trapped.” He also chastised his family for attempting to persuade him to stay, despite his wife’s suicidal feelings.

The Duke continues: “That feeling of being trapped within the family is… there was no option to leave. Eventually when I made that decision for my family I was still told ‘you can’t do this’.

“And I was like ‘well how bad does it have to get before I am allowed to do this?’. Well she [Meghan] was going to end her life.

“It shouldn’t have to get to that”

Harry added: “It’s incredibly triggering to potentially lose another woman in my life. Like the list is growing, and it all comes back to the same people, the same business model — the same industry.

Harry revealed a number of other surprising revelations, including his fear that Meghan would commit suicide when pregnant with their son, Archie, because of the suffering she was through.

Harry has also discussed his prior mental health struggles in the documentary series, revealing that he suffered from panic attacks following the loss of his mother, Princess Diana.

He confessed that he was “ashamed” of how he handled the situation and that he had previously used alcohol and drugs to attempt to numb his grief.
