Prince Harry, in an interview shown Thursday, attributed his move with his wife and son to the United States to the desire to break the “cycle of suffering” in the family, after discovering that his father, Prince Charles, was treating him “the way he had been treated.”
These statements fall in the context of the fiery interview conducted by Harry and his wife Megan Markle with the American media Oprah Winfrey and shocked Britain after its presentation in March.
During the interview, Harry and Meghan, especially an unnamed member of the British royal family, were accused of questioning the color of the couple’s complexion at the time.
Harry confirmed that his family and Prince Charles “literally cut off resources” from him in early 2020.
Prince Harry confirmed through the American audio blog “Armature Expert” that he did not blame his father, considering that the latter, in turn, “suffered” when he was young. But he said he decided not to repeat the same mistakes with his children.
Harry, 36, said during the interview, “In terms of raising children, if I experienced some kind of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that my parents experienced, I will make sure to break the cycle.”
Harry and Oprah Winfrey will collaborate on a mental health documentary series titled “The Me You Was See”, which will debut on May 21st, “Apple TV +”.
During the promotion of this program, Prince Harry confirmed through the podcast “Armature Expert” that he realized shortly after reaching the age of twenty that he did not wish to continue with royal obligations, in a position returning in part to “what happened with my mother.”
He also recalls feeling “completely helpless” after seeing his mother “being pursued by a celebrity photo sniper” when he was a child.
Harry and Megan live with their 2-year-old son, Archie, in Montecito, north of Los Angeles. They are expecting a new baby this summer.
