In an interview with Daily Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon, Prince Harry spoke of not dealing with his mother’s death for 20 years, and “shutting down” all his emotions, which had a serious effect on his personal life and work.

The Prince also said, “My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that help?”

Prince Harry was just 12 years old when his famous mother met a fatal car accident in Paris on 31 August 1997. All hearts went out to the two royal sons on that momentous day the world watched as his mom was laid to rest.

People saw him walking beside his brother, father, grandfather, and uncle behind his mother’s hearse during the funeral procession, as they wove their way to Westminster Abbey, where all the royals receive their sacraments.

As the whole world grieved, with probably over two billion people having watched the Princess of Wales’ funeral on television, there was one 12-year-old child who kept all the grief to himself.

The Daily Telegraph says Prince Harry “has decided to talk about his past in the hope it will encourage people to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues”.
