Prince Harry admits ‘holding on to grief’ after loss of late mum Princess Diana

Prince Harry has spoken candidly about the loss of his mother Princess Diana.

The former royal appeared on Good Morning America via video link to promote his new Apple TV documentary The Me You Can't See.

The five part mini series has been produced and is hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

Speaking about experiencing loss at a young age, Harry told GMA: "If we hold on to grief it manifests itself and appears later in life.

"That is what I have learned from this process.

"But being able to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and to be able to help in that healing process is absolutely critical.

"That was what I found with the Invictus Games."

Stressing he thinks pandemic should be used a springboard to talk about things that before were off limits, Harry added: "I think globally we have now all had a shared experience – all be it in different locations around the world.

"We should now be talking about things we have never talked about before."

"That doesn't make sense. Just because you suffered 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 you had, that you can make it right for your kids."

The Duke of Sussex went on to add that he was told by the royal family that if he "played the game" his life would improve.
