Prince Harry Talks Princess Diana, Childhood Trauma at Speaking Event

February 8, 2020

Prince Harry took to the stage at a speaking event in Miami.

The 35-year-old spoke about the death of his mother Princess Diana and the childhood trauma that it caused him, reported Page Six.

Harry was joined by wife Meghan Markle at the JP Morgan-sponsored event, but she did not offer any sort of keynote address.

Gayle King introduced Queen Elizabeth’s grandson before he allegedly discussed being in therapy for the last three years to deal with his mother’s tragic passing in 1997.

“He talked about how the events of his childhood affected him and that he has been talking to a mental health professional,” a source told the outlet. “Harry also touched on Megxit, saying while it has been very difficult on him and Meghan, he does not regret their decision to step down as senior royals because he wants to protect his family.”

His relationship with the rest of the royal family may be further strained, as the source added: “He does not want Meghan and their son Archie to go through what he did as a child.”

Although it is unclear if Harry was paid for the speaking engagement, a source told Page Six the couple were flown on a private jet to attend the event.

Harry and Meghan’s Florida excursion comes one month after the bombshell revelation that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

The couple is set to give up their “Royal Highness" titles and will stop receiving public funds for their royal duties.

Since their announcement, the pair have kept a relatively low profile by retreating to Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.
