After their controversial but famous interview in 2020, Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey made a docuseries about mental health called ‘The Me You Can’t See.’
In it, Prince Harry talks about Meghan Markle’s treatment by the royal family and how triggering it was and that it deeply reminded him of his own late mother, Princess Diana, who was hounded to her death while she was in a relationship with someone that wasn’t white, and now look what’s happened? Talk about history repeating itself, and that it wouldn’t stop until she dies.
In the docuseries, Prince Harry talks about his regrets about not calling out the racism toward Meghan earlier and that his father used to say to him when he was younger that it was like that for him, so it was going to be like that for Harry.
But Prince Harry said that it didn’t make sense. Just because they had to suffer didn’t mean that their children should have to suffer. In fact, quite the opposite. If you suffered, then you would do everything that you could to make sure whatever unfavourable experience you had, you would want to make it right for your children.
His mother, Princess Diana, had split from his father Prince Charles in the year 1992 and divorced in 1996. After that, she dated Egyptian born Dodi Fayed. They both perished in a car wreck in 1997 in Paris while they were hunted by the paparazzi, but in 2008, Mohammed Al-Fayed, Dodi’s father, accused the royal family of being racist toward his son, and he referred to them as the ‘Dracula Family’ who couldn’t stand the thought of a Muslim marrying the princess.
Speaking of the paparazzi, Meghan Markle spoke about her suicidal thoughts in her interview with Oprah. She explained she didn’t want to be alive anymore because of the bombardment of adverse and negative media coverage about her.
Those racist headlines included blaming her for fueling human rights abuses, drought, and murder. For eating avocados and describing her mother’s hometown as almost straight outta Compton and gang scarred.
Her poor mental health was part of Prince Harry’s decision to leave the royal family, but when he was told that he couldn’t do it, he didn’t accept that because how bad did it have to get until he was allowed to do this? When she was going to end her life? But it shouldn’t have to get like that.
In the docuseries, Prince Harry opened up about his battle with mental health as he grew up. He was twelve when his mother passed and he was never encouraged to seek help, and if people asked how he was, he would say that he was fine. Never happy, never sad, just fine. Fine was the easy answer, but actually, he was all over the place mentally, and his family members just said play the game and his life would be easier.
He endured extreme anxiety and panic attacks during his royal life, which all deteriorated in his late 20s when he turned to partying, drugs, and drinking to enable him to cope, and Prince Harry said he was willing to try and do the something that made him feel less like he was feeling, but then gradually he became aware that he wasn’t drinking Monday to Friday, but would probably drink a week’s worth in one day on a Friday or Saturday night, and that he found he was drinking, not because he was enjoying it, but because he was attempting to hide something.
Then he hit his breaking point, and he said it was like someone had taken a lid off the feeling that he’d hidden for so many years and unexpectedly everything came to the forefront.
I guess Prince Harry is allowed to have freedom of speech like anyone else, and why should Meghan be condemned for Harry telling his truths? He has a mind of his own, and he could be correct in saying that the media never have anything flattering to report about them.
Diana was with Hasnat Khan the heart surgeon before Dodi, and they split because he didn’t like the media hounding him all the time, which says a lot for the media and how far they will go to get a story.
You could also say that it’s appalling how much Harry is cashing in on his mother’s demise, and numerous people out there are saying just that, and that he isn’t right in the head, but actually what he’s trying to get across is that his mother died for no good reason.
Diana didn’t need to die and had she not been hounded by the paparazzi if it was the paparazzi who were hunting her, then perhaps she would have still been alive today, but instead, a fellow human being was killed without a second thought.
It might seem absurd to some people out there, but I don’t think that he’s been brainwashed, especially not by his wife, but a lot of people are saying that he’s not the smartest pen in the box and that he’s being used. I believe the opposite and that when the Queen shuffles off this mortal coil a lot of information will come out about the death of Diana and what actually happened, and Harry will be the one to do it, unfortunately, many people don’t want the truth, they want the fairytale!
