Prince Harry Opens Up About The Time When He Realized He Needed Therapy

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been the talk of the town lately. One of the first steps to getting help is to identify the problem, which is harder than it seems. Over the course of 2 years, they have acquired a strong group of critics who are skeptical of everything that the couple does. Fortunately, to balance out the roughness, they also have a group of fans who are supportive of their decisions.

Drama in the Royal Club

When the pair parted their ways with the royal family, it came as a shock to everyone but, it was nothing compared to what would happen next. At the beginning of 2021, the former royals sat down with world-renowned host Oprah Winfrey and spoke about their experiences while living in the palace. There were accusations of alleged racism towards baby Archie and talk of Meghan suffering from suicidal thoughts. Everyone had an idea of how hard it would be to keep up with the royal living standards, but this was a side of the royal family that no one had seen before.  Well, all that glitters is not gold.

He opened up about his mental health struggles and disclosed that he began his journey to better his mental health and heal from his past traumas four years ago. He also talked about the time he had met Meghan, and she noticed that he had latent resentment. Later an argument led Meghan to convince Prince Harry to reach out for help.

Sometimes, certain events leave an everlasting effect on our minds, and if left untreated, they can go on to sabotage our health and our mental peace. Similarly, Prince Harry has been carrying the trauma of his mother’s death after all these years and only began to process his grief once he had started therapy. He also talked about his alcohol and substance abuse that was caused by untreated trauma.
