In an encounter with a trauma expert on Saturday, Prince Harry reportedly admitted that he has long felt “somewhat different” from the rest of the British royal family.

Harry admitted to a trauma specialist that he had sought treatment in order to feel better, which made him feel like an outcast.

According to reports of the live-streamed conversation, Prince Harry, 38, characterised himself as coming from a “broken household” and said he was attempting to avoid passing “trauma” onto his children.

The interview comes in the wake of the prince’s contentious memoir, Spare, which was released in January.

In it, he acknowledged that drugs and alcohol had a big impact on his boyhood and described how his ties with his father, King Charles III, and brother, William, had broken down.

“I certainly have felt throughout my life, my younger years, I felt slightly different to the rest of my family,” Harry told Mate, according to numerous media reports on the interview.

“I felt strange being in this container, and I know that my mum felt the same so it makes sense to me,” He continued, mentioning his late mother, Princess Diana.

Harry continued by saying that his wife Meghan Markle had “saved” him.

“I was stuck in this world, and she was from a different world and helped draw me out of that,” he said, describing her as “an exceptional human being”.

Dr. Gabor Mate, a writer of numerous books on trauma, addiction, and sickness, publicly identified Harry as having Attention Deficit Disorder during the conversation (ADD).

Prince Harry opens up about his parenting approach

California-based Harry, who left the UK and the royal life with Meghan in 2020 due to a disagreement with the monarchy, talked about his parenting style for their two kids, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1-year-old.

“I feel a huge responsibility not to pass on any trauma or negative experiences that I’ve had as a kid or as a man growing up.”

“There are times when I catch myself when I should be smothering them with that love but I might not be.” He added.

He said that he and Meghan were attempting to learn together, “from our own past and overlapping those mistakes, perhaps, and growing to break that cycle”.

Relationships between the exiled couple and other senior royals are thought to have substantially deteriorated as a result of the publishing of Spare, in which Harry accuses William of attacking him during a dispute over Meghan.
