The prince has admitted that counseling helped him gain a new outlook, a change in thought, and the confidence to walk away. The Duke of Sussex, on the other hand, admits that he would never have gone to therapy if he hadn’t first argued with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
For a long time, Prince Harry felt stuck in the British royal family.
Long before he met Meghan, Prince Harry was uneasy in the royal family.

The prince, on the other hand, didn’t have the confidence to leave until Meghan’s health started to suffer as a result of her time in the spotlight.
While filming their latest docuseries, “The Me You Can’t See,” Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey had a “key moment” about how helping others recover has helped them heal as well.

Prince Harry says he didn’t get the answer he was hoping for after confiding in his father, Prince Charles. “Just because you have suffered does not mean that your children have to suffer,” Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey.
As a coping strategy, the prince turned to drugs and alcohol. “I was ready… This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
