Prince Harry Says Therapy In His Late 20’s Saved His Life

Prince Harry, 32, sat down for a rare interview with the Telegraph over the weekend. The younger of the late Princess Diana’s two sons, said  “I was a wreck for years.”  Harry said that everything came to a head when he was in his late 20’s. His mother died in a Paris tunnel, when the car she was in smashed into a cement wall at a very high speed. Prince Harry was 12 when his mother died and the world mourned her death for weeks on end.

Harry said he had to shut down for several years and keep “his head in the sand” just to cope with it all at such a young age. Harry said that not thinking about his mother was his only way to deal with her death. He said “thinking about her would only make me sad, it won’t help. It won’t bring her back, so why do it.” Harry continued “from an emotional side, I was like right, don’t ever let your emotions be a part of anything. I can safely say that losing my mum at 12 and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a serious effect not only on my personal life but my work as well.”

The Prince talked at his apartment in Kensington Palace, the former home of his mother. He said he had serious aggression issues as well. Part of his therapy was taking up boxing, and that really helped him with his anger issues, and he believes it saved his life.  He sought professional  help when he was in his late 20’s at the urging of his older brother Prince William. Harry was spotted in Toronto on Easter Sunday visiting his girlfriend American actress Meghan Markle, who was there working.
