Prince Harry assured the American podcast Armchair Expert not to blame his father, believing that the latter could himself have “suffered” when he was young. But he says he decided not to make the same mistakes with his own children. “Doesn’t life come back to breaking the cycle?” Harry, now a 36-year-old father, asks during the interview. “As a parent, if I have experienced any form of pain or suffering because of pain or suffering that my father or my parents may have experienced, I will make sure to break the cycle. », He insists.
The accusations made in their interview with Oprah Winfrey by Harry and Meghan, who moved to California in March 2020, have plunged the British monarchy into its deepest crisis since the accidental death of Princess Diana in 1997. Harry and Oprah Winfrey will collaborate on a series of documentaries dedicated to mental health, The Me You Can’t See, which premieres May 21 on Apple TV +.
